Artful Affirmations & Original Oracles

Creating Affirmation and Oracle Decks Using Mixed Media and Intuitive Art

Words and images have the power to support or to dismantle. Let the words you speak and the images you conjure be affirming, supportive, and encouraging.

Write, paint, explore, discover, share, empower... 3 Artful Projects to Inspire and Encourage.

This class is all about inspiration and powerful affirming thoughts and images. As we create three artful projects, we will employ a multitude of mixed media techniques to help unlock our negative thoughts and replace them with more positive and affirming ideas and images. During this time together, you'll get to explore materials and create two unique (and artful) decks and one box to house them in! Let’s gather, affirm, and empower!!!

Hello Beautiful Creative You!
I'm happy you're here.

I'm Kiala Givehand, a multi-passionate intuitive & intentional creative. I walk through the world as a LifeAlchemist™ for creative, heart-centered, soul-filled women who want to change the world by shining their light more fully and more brightly. I call myself a LifeAlchemist™ because I help women bring together all the parts of themselves to create a life they love. As an Alchemist, I support women through creative and spiritual awakenings and guide them towards empowerment.

As an artist, I make (and sometimes sell) handmade journals using a mix of mediums. I host workshops, retreats and online classes where I get to teach the things that nourish my soul -- bookbinding, journaling, creative writing, and self-discovery though transformational tools and content.

For almost 20 years, I taught English, Language Arts, and Creative Writing at every educational level, while simultaneously traveling the U.S. delivering workshops and presentations to educators. While I no longer travel to work with teachers, I now enjoy working one-on-one and in small groups with students, teachers, artists, writers, and creative entrepreneurs. I do this work because I love helping women find the thing that fills them with joy and watching them pursue it without regrets or apologies.

I've done a lot of things in my short 45+ years on this planet, but I'm most proud of raising my nephew Treavor, and listening to my inner wisdom by doing the things that make me come alive. Constructing handmade books and art journals is one of those things that allows me to feel A L I V E!!! And I'd love to have you join me on this journey. Reading tarot & oracle cards, pulling astrological charts, and delving into the esoteric and ancient guidance systems is another way I help women have spiritual and creative awakenings. I'm eager to do the same for you.

I cherish every single day and treat life as one amazing adventure. I play with paint and watercolor, fold paper into books, write poetry, short fiction, & creative non-fiction, and guide women through sacred remembering of who they truly are. But always, every single day, I journal and do something that I feel is creative. Oh!! And did I mention that I'm the proud owner of a fabulous collection of fountain pens? (I know. Geek alert!)

Join me and let's create something beautiful, TODAY!!
