About stargardener

Braveheart, I believe art heals — and that art is as simple as abiding outdoors with the morning sky or jotting lists or having a favorite color. I created Right Brain Planner® because I needed a "planner" that offered space but didn't trigger my daily expectations. I needed a planner that was a journal — a place to creatively document my {living} + collect my blurts and random collage. Perhaps you are in need of the same? If so, I hope you will join me via our shared online connections. ♥

Reflections — Honoring a Slower Pace + Fostering Resiliency

[art included in “Reflections”]

To let go of something is when hope begins. -Anne Lamott

As we honor our capacity, we are renewed and better equipped to gently reshape our dailies; we are healed by living within rhythms of grace that wash over us like waves on a shoreline.

Instead of planning being about expectations and performance, I invite you to think of it as allowing time and space for time traveling [at your pace] into Next with the intention to seek, and to be — and to intentionally discover more about your capacity.

Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose. -Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

The “Reflections” journal-planning guide continues with a focus on fostering resiliency by practicing reflection [solitude; looking into; pondering; pause; allowing for wandery thoughts].

  • As we enter into a new season and into the final quarter of 2017, you are invited to imagine your life as a mirror, reflecting imagery of your priorities and personal investments of time and energy.  
  • This 16-page journal-planning guide includes template pages that assist with a focus on fostering a practice of ease and reflection.
  • Resource links are included in the e-mail you receive with your purchase.

Page Views: Themed Content, Artwork and Prompts

Page Views: Themed Content & Practice Guide [when trimmed these pages fit composition notebooks] ☛ Create a separate journal-planner booklet using the cover art and dated elements -or- a customized version utilizing the art and content from this guide + a composition notebook, altered book or other type of bound journal or planner.

This guide includes two separate sections:

  1. Themed content, artwork and prompts.
  2. Content for exploring creative ways of reflection; planning elements/content and dated art (if desired); only two main elements are date-specific. This guide is focused on themed content, not dated material.

You have the option of incorporating the art and content from the entire guide to create a customized record using a composition notebook, altered book or other type of bound journal or planner! 🙂

  • This guide is an invitation to reframe the way you define the word [plan] and to explore your journal-planning as a storyline — with [you] as the main character and director — as your life-story is being written & unfolding in real-time!

To seek and “perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite … the emancipation of the mind … an exploration into unknown areas.” (Arshile Gorky)

Editorial Note — Journal-planning guides represent an approximate 27-day Intensive (one lunar cycle): topic selection, research, notations, life experiments + art-making. The final writing process takes place during an approximate 3-day period. Content is gathered, sorted & organized — followed by basic edits, layout measurements and design. My goal is to visually convey a theme + inspire you to experiment with your own creative journal-planning practice + chronicle your discoveries at your own pace — (not to produce a perfectly written/edited document, despite the editor in me cringing a bit each month).
