~a year of playful, transformational virtual workshops~
Are you sick of things feeling SO F-ING DARK & HEAVY?
I know I am!
Do you want to PLAY MORE, GET CREATIVE & INFUSE MORE JOY IN YOUR LIFE – asap, as in – right now?
Let’s be honest…don’t we all? Plus, adulting with no playtime is LAME AF (and a recipe for burn-out)
Do you feel like an emotional hot mess lately and want to feel LIGHTER (and heal in a way that doesn’t feel so heavy) but you’re just not sure how?
(Maybe to cope you find yourself mindlessly scrolling into the rabbit hole of social media for hours or finding other ways to numb out)
Are you feeling sexually blocked or frustrated?
Maybe you’re not getting laid, maybe things could be hotter (but they’re not), maybe you’re just feeling MEH recently because life is overwhelming and you’re disconnected from your sensuality & inner fire?
(creative energy & sexual energy are interconnected)
You’re not alone…
Things are heavy in the world right now and tons of people are experiencing wild, unexpected change, which comes with emotional waves & energetic ebbs and flows. One minute you might feel great, the next you’re like “WTF is life, now what?!”
Here’s the good news – not ALL “healing” (or even “shadow work”) has to be heavy, miserable and like carrying a bag of bricks from one place to another.
You can also alchemize painful emotions or excess/stagnant energy into JOY & LOVE through PLAYFULNESS & CREATIVE, ARTISTIC EXPRESSION.
Artistic Alchemy was a fun space PLUS major epiphanies…
Artistic Alchemy was such a fun space! It gave me a chance to explore my life in real-time and a safe space to exchange ideas with others.
The final result was equal parts – a major relationship epiphany, shadow integration and cute artwork!
It was just the thing I needed to give me a fresh start before 2022.
Alison is the best! – Ellen F.
In 2020 when everyone was in lockdown and things were pretty dismal, I was also going through a huge ending of a long chapter in my business (and my personal life). Nothing was happening on the biz or relationship front, so it was a void space. I was feeling exhausted, uninspired & obviously frustrated with the isolation and world events.
I turned to art to channel my emotional tsunamis and pent up sexual energy.
I’d been doing things like kundalini kriyas, meditation, yoga & karate as a way to move extra (and my sexual) energy. I was definitely immersed in lots of self-care.
But I wasn’t really doing anything creative purely for FUN.
(and the ironic thing is I went to art school in college but literally abandoned art as an adult because *adulting* took over...and it started to suck BIGTIME! All work and no play will make anyone miserable.)
Since at the time during 2020 my biz had basically come to a standstill, I decided to binge every Dave Chappelle special and bought some watercolors and also video editing software. I immersed myself in dark humor. I played with making a new style of video with funny edits, music, etc.
I didn’t have any goals with any of it. I found myself getting lost in the creation process. I watched watercolor tutorials online & just played around. Most of the video edits I didn’t even end up posting online. And yet, I got into such a zone SIMPLY CREATING FOR THE SAKE OF CREATING.
No expectations. No financial goals attached to it.
Just creative flow.
And without even realizing it right away, I noticed a lot of the sticky, heavy emotions lifted. I was channeling all that energy into this artistic expression and since there was no "outcome", there was no pressure.
Just like MAGIC - it was VERY FUCKING HEALING!
And in turn, as I gave myself more playtime & more creative time (after years of essentially "counseling" people in intuitive readings & doing a shitload of my own shadow healing - I needed a change), I actually ended up channeling the entire idea for the Return of Venus program (which was all about the yin/feminine frequency & sensual embodiment - precisely the things I practiced all throughout 2020 - and it ended up being a very easy, smooth & 5 figure launch).
From there, not only was I finally able to move into my own apartment two blocks away from the ocean & have a social life again, my business also started to turn in this new direction, which is wayyyyyyyyyy more FUN, more pleasurable, more creative and more ME. My soul is finally feeling happy again. My energy is back. The glow up is real. And I did it through art, the freedom of creative playtime & learning to channel my sexual energy into something healthy (despite years of being out of relationship, my sexual energy is alive and well and I feel DEEPLY connected to my body and my sensuality).
I want this for you, too - whatever it is you're doing. Maybe you just want to feel better personally. Maybe you also have a creative business and want THAT to feel more alive & inspired.
Are you wanting a healthier, more playful, LIGHTER WAY to transmute pain or challenging emotions?
Feeling uninspired and like your life is Groundhog Day, a constant loop of mundane, boring bullshit totally lacking FUN, JOY & LAUGHTER?
Scrolling mindlessly on social media in your spare time or finding that you’re numbing out for long, extended periods throughout the day aimlessly?
Do you feel like being creative isn't "productive", or it's "lazy", or there's more important things to do than play? (your inner child is screaming right now, lol)
Is your inner creatrix getting stifled by perfectionism, internal guilt trips or by the shitty committee in your head?
Did anyone ever tell you that your artistic or creative expression sucks or “isn’t art”, so you might think you're not "creative" or an "artist"?
The truth is - we're ALL CREATORS!
Unbothered, happy and excited for new things after our workshop…
Mercury Retrograde pushed all my buttons, but it forced me to face several things head on. So [during the guided meditation] I remembered that brief period of my childhood when I was completely myself, liked/loved myself, before the rest of the world set in. This is how I feel right now after our call – in a somewhat peaceful and neutral void space, not anxious about whatever is coming next – I’m unbothered, happy and excited for new things! – Ellen F.
Ever since our last class, I’ve been on a high…
When we let our heart lead the way fabulous and unexpected things follow. Ever since our last class, I’ve been on a high and feeling good about myself. And that always brings the people in my life closer. Thanks for creating a great workshop and safe space for us to share, Alison! – Melissa O.
It’s like my body was telling me how to release through art…
It’s nice, just like a relief, like the anger has space to be seen, felt, etc. like I’m understanding and meeting myself in a new way. It’s like my body was telling me how to release through art. – Torie S.

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the Weekly Workshop Call Schedule?
I got some requests for evening classes for those living in Australia/abroad, so for round 2 I'll be sure to add some evening and weekday calls to respect the time difference.
*all workshops will be recorded, so if you can’t make it live, you’ll be able to catch the replay right away in the course portal & stay connected in our private Telegram group in between calls*
Do I need to be an "artist" to join?
We ALL have a way to creatively express, so you don't need to have ANY "art training" whatsoever. Artistic Alchemy is a great fit if you're drawn to creativity & the arts (think back to when you were a kid - this could be ANY form of creative expression like drawing, painting, watercolors, markers, crayons, pencils, music, dancing, poetry, journaling, singing and so much more) & you'd like to incorporate more creative expression in your life.
Do I need to have a creative business to join?
Nope! This is a great program to open your creative channels in general, whether that be simply for your own personal enjoyment & healing OR it'll also be very beneficial if you're a content creator & creativity is a core aspect of your business.
Will there be a payment plan?
There will be a special annual enrollment rate for everyone *on the waitlist only*. Once general enrollment opens, there will be 2 options - an annual paid in full option and or a monthly drop-in rate.
Will there be group support in between the calls?
Yup! Once you enroll, you'll get the link to join the private group chat in the Telegram phone app, which is where we'll connect during our time together! The group chat will get deleted once we finish our time together.
Do I need any art supplies prior to joining?
We'll have a portion of our live workshop each week to do some freestyle creating in the group together (like an art class with NO rules) that will start with a special guided mediation prior, so for that bring your favorite tools. This could be as simple as a piece of paper and a pen, a notebook, a journal, some crayons or markers or [colored] pencils or pens, some drawing paper if you'd like, paints or watercolors - something that you can do in the group setting. It's not about what it looks like, it's about the ACT of allowing yourself to freely create in the moment without goals or expectations. Then during part of the workshop we'll have time for a few shares from people participating.
In between calls, you're welcome to create HOWEVER you'd like! Again, I'll direct you in the workshops as to what you can do in between calls. For example, if you're a singer or dancer, if you build things, maybe you're a photographer or graphic designer or something like this - you'll be able to do what you want in between our workshops. If you'd like to START doing a new creative activity, like painting for example, then YES - you can go purchase those things before we begin or after our first live workshop!
Access and logging in to the Course Portal?
If this is your first time participating in any of my courses, you'll be directed to create a Thinkific username and password at the time of purchase, which you'll need to save and use to log in to Artistic Alchemy (and you can save it in case you ever decide to join future courses of mine as well)!
