The Journey Home
Go on a creative exploration of integrating your inner child and present adult self.
This is a process of aligning the right and left brain, or the feeing and thinking parts of yourself.
Move through six lessons that help visually record this empowering process of becoming conscious of yourself and accepting yourself as a complete, unified, sovereign being.
- The Inner Child: It is time to give the silenced inner child a voice to speak with us again.
- The Journey: The inner child’s life journey begins to tear it away from its own truths.
- The Fragmentation: The society’s need for conformity widens the gap between the inner child and the growing self.
- The Tower Moment: The self feels torn between its obligations and disappearing dreams, desires and worth.
- The Leap of Faith: Despite its fears and doubts, the self takes the leap of faith!
- The Integration: The self is ready to bear the discomfort that might come from realigning with its own truth and re-integrating with its core self – its inner child.
- It’s a Matter of Perspective: The integrating self grows in confidence and is open to other perspectives.

What format do I receive the class in?
This class is powered by Get Messy.
During registration, you will choose your own username and password for the private site.
If you’re enrolling as a once-off class and already have a Get Messy account (yay), just make sure you’re already logged in and your details will already be there. All of your content is accessible to you under one username.
The class will be available through this private site for the lifetime of Get Messy. The lessons are a mixture of video and written instruction given in English with a brilliant accent.
Do I have to start on a specific date?
This is a self-paced class. You start when you are ready and work according to your own rhythm. The Get Messy community will be going through it together, but it’s not date-specific.
What do I need for this class?
A journal, your current preferred supplies, and an open heart! A detailed list of supplies is shared inside the course, but you likely have what you need on hand and we never recommend spending a lot of money on supplies without knowing how and if you will use them. Always take creative license to substitute or use supplies that you already have and love.
How long do I have access to this class?
If you’re enjoying this as part of the membership, you’ll have access as long as you’re a member (along with the rest of our chunky library).
If you’re enrolling as a once-off class, your access is for ever ever.*
* Disclaimer: Get Messy is not Ms. Jackson, and “lifetime access” means the lifetime of the company.
Can I contact the teacher if I have questions?
Member? You have a dedicated private space in the community where your teacher delights in answering any questions you have about the class content.
Once-off class purchase? You won’t have access to the community unless you join Get Messy at a later time.
Can I share my work and what I learn in this class?
That would be awesome!
