Beyond surviving infertility... Artfully thrive through:
Fertility struggles challenge our perspective what we thought to be true in our life and the world.
Reduce isolation. Enhance coping. Deepen insight.
Quieting the mind can be difficult... so make art instead! Art is an excellent tool to be active in your self discovery. Both mind and body are engaged. There is purpose to the alone time. Most importantly, no prior art making experience is needed.
Artful Fertility Community is a mash-up of art, inspiration, and mindfulness. Weekly "Artful"experiences are offered - watch and participate live or when you are available.
This is a safe community. You receive the benefit of a private forum for discussion and posts between members. Pregnancy tests results are not shared in this community. Your artwork will not be critiqued. Your experience is honored. (Community rules are included on the Facebook group page.) You will be offered opportunities to explore your heart, challenge yourself, and really get to know that person inside.
You are in the midst of perhaps one of the greatest challenges in your life. You will learn so much about yourself along the way. Whatever the outcome, your transformation will be amazing!
Create together. Grow together. Inspire each other.
No art experience is required. The beauty in this work is what you learn about yourself through the process of creating. The final product is just a point if which you decided to stop the process. You have many freedoms when creating. The choice is yours.
You really get quite a benefit from joining the community. You gain so much! You have access and connection to not only me but to the entire community and to tools you can use. Chartreuse Center traditional groups are $225 for a 4 session closed group. I'm inspired by the power of connection and creativity to lessen emotional pain and improve self understanding.
Join the Artful Fertility Community and begin your path to getting back to YOU!
Let me introduce myself... Hello, I'm Julie.
I created this school for YOU! I know the importance of quality information when you are searching for knowledge and understanding of your current situation. Unfortunately the internet is full of discussion groups that give misinformation, are a collection of personal experiences, or simply opinion. That may distract you with your own growth and empowerment. You may not have resources in your area or you may not want to participate in groups or workshops due to the private nature of your situation. You are welcome regardless of where you live and you don't have to publicly share your experiences. I hope you find useful information and tools to help you now.
I have had my own personal experience with infertility. My husband and I were able to became parents through foster care adoption and we continue to be foster parents. I'm here to tell you, there is hope. Life may seem uncertain right now. After significant deaths, my life was different. After infertility treatment, my life was different. After becoming a foster & adoptive parent, my life was different yet again. I have and will continue to grow and deepen my relationship with my spirit through these experiences.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Nationally Certified Counselor and a Registered Art Therapist . Art Therapy and Counseling are a second career for me. I hold a dual Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology and Art Therapy from Adler University. I believe in connecting with other professionals and staying current in my areas of specialization.Learn more about my experience and professional memberships.
