Your unique vision is as distinctive as the sound of your voice, your signature, your fingerprint, or your DNA. In this class, you will deepen your ability to see with your inner eye by learning to notice what you notice and document your findings in a Noticing-book. Being human is a practice just like learning to play the piano, cook, or ski. Learning to notice what you see with your eyes as well as your internal scope is an extension of who you are and who you hope to become.



Through guided exercises and prompts, you will learn to recognize your own sight and insight. The goal for each participant in this introductory class is to recognize your own vision – in the world and of yourself. Through cultivating a dynamic, intentional, and mindful Noticing-book practice, you will hone, document and treasure both your sight and your insight. Learn to see with your eyes and with your heart!


In this class you will:

  • Learn to see more astutely
  • Become more human
  • Fuel the fires of creativity
  • Cultivate a new way of seeing, thinking and being in the world
  • Practice mindfulness
  • Develop gratitude
  • Experience the laws of attraction
  • Use list making as a way to generate energy and bust anxiety
  • Understand meta-cognition and its uses in becoming a more creative human
  • Begin to notice what you notice and practice the valuable art of self-reflection
  • Learn to use both the left and right sides of your brain as a way to enhance your human-ness

"I love teaching this course! From the most experienced creatives to the non-artist – every student of mine gains insight! One of the most rewarding things I do as a human being is to keep company with a community of learners as they become a deeper version of themselves by seeing more with their eyes and with their heart!" - Milisa

Notice What You Notice


We live in a fast-paced time in human history. Thanks to technology, life is speeding up more every day. No matter how hard we work, we humans will never keep up with the pace of machines. Instead, we must slow down and refine our ability to be more human - to see more deeply with our eyes and feel more genuinely with our heart. Increasing these skills will differentiate us from or more robotic counterparts. The cold dark months of January and February (in the Northern Hemisphere) offers us the precious gift of time to slow down during the deep winter. Learn to practice the pause to appreciate and value what you notice. When you look with your inner eye and record your findings in a Noticing-book, magically human things start to happen in your life.
