This is web design done differently:

brand confusion

Through guidebooks, meditations and activities designed to explore your business differently, you'll feel totally clear around your branding - from color palettes to imagery, fonts to copy

tech woes

I'm a nerd at heart - I've got you covered!  You'll be confident and at ease with creating your very own website - so that you're empowered at the end of the process and can add in updates as your business shifts

dull and dry

Let's spice things up with soulful connection.  Each aspect of the web design process - from defining your work and audience to creating your first page to sharing your site with the world -  is infused with meditation and ritual, with the archetypes of the Tarot woven into each step.  And I promise - the process is pretty fun!

impersonal

The Gemini in me wants to get to know you and the work that you do.  This experience begins weeks before you land in Portland.  Prepare for 2 video connection calls to explore your vision and start the branding process with the Tarot as a support system.  We'll also meet once after the retreat after a bit of integration time in case any additional questions have come forward - things really click into place for my clients in these calls!

removed from you

I'm here to fully support you, but it's really YOU making the tech magic happen.  In this way, your website is oozing with your very own luscious energy.  


Hey there Magic Maker...

I know that as someone who is an entrepreneur - whether you are just starting out, redefining your niche, or whether you've been doing your work for years...

There's a heck of a lot to learn.

As if it wasn't enough to learn how to hold space, show up as a leader aligned with your core values, call in community, and develop your courses and programs...

There's the whole oh-my-goodness-I-need-to-design-a-website! feeling.

I know the importance of creating a sacred online space for your important work.  In fact, I see each website that I create for my clients as an altar space...

...a space to infuse your magic
...a space to express your genius
...a space to bow in reverence to your holy work
...a space to show the devotion that you pour into your business
...a space to showcase all that you are - through visuals and text

And I know that all of that can be difficult to create when you are working on showing up for your work daily.

Let me let you in on a little secret...It doesn’t have be painful or stressful.  Pinky swear.

...And what if the process was fun and tapped into your love of all things sacred?

I believe that creating your own website on Squarespace can be full of ease when you're able to dive into play and the practical at the same time.
 

Let's gather together at the Squarespace Sovereignty In-person Intensive

a 1-week deep dive in Portland, OR
designed to support entrepreneurs with the hands-on focus necessary
to create their new website or branding

November 2nd - November 9th, 2018

Working together with a group of like-minded entrepreneurs cheering you on, we'll dive into sacred rituals designed to help you connect to the energy of your business...and then jump into inspired action with the collective and create your whole site from a place of creative confidence and flow.

You'll navigate forward on this path with a step-by-step plan laid out for you with the support of myself (a Squarespace Circle Member who knows Squarespace inside and out...just check out my portfolio here) AND with the other magic makers who will be joining us for this journey.

By the end of the week, you’ll know how to confidently navigate Squarespace and make updates, revisions, and add new offerings with ease...and have a brand new website to share with your community.

Taking Elle’s course provided me with the skills and inspiration to design a website that resonated with my personal values, authenticity, and passions in a way that was clear and concise yet, at the same time, magical, exciting, and all around fun! She really shows up, is always there to answer questions, and was generous with her ability to guide and reflect the deeper, intuitive aspects of the work that I do. I believe she is really a sorceress who weaves the worldly and mundane business of being an entrepreneur with the living mystic threads of true livelihood and sacred offering.

    Working with Elle on my site rebrand was magic from the outset — she is intuitive, her design work is on point and she is grounded in the practical details of making a website hum.

    Not only that, but she is a natural born teacher and I finally, FINALLY feel like I know how to really work with the backend of SquareSpace with ease.

    Elle is exactly what I wanted in a designer and a teacher — kind, patient and filled with magical intuition. I have recommended her to everyone I know without hesitation. She is a star and I’m just so grateful to have found her.

    Creating your online space doesn’t have be painful or stressful…

    My promise to you:  

    If you show up with devotion for your own work
    by the end of this journey you’ll know how to confidently navigate Squarespace
    and make updates, revisions, and add new offerings with ease.

    That means you'll have your website up and ready for all of the magic that you have planned for 2019.
     

    I came into this course having just enough tech knowledge to get by, but I wanted more. I wanted to feel empowered + uplifted. I wanted to reconnect more deeply to my work and myself. And I wanted to know that I had full ability to shift things within my website, as myself and my work grows and shifts.

    And that is just what I received and so much more. So many things unlocked and cleared for me during this experience. Things that had me feeling stuck in my business and feeling aimless. I knew I had something great to offer to the collective, but no clue how to translate that into a website that was fully functional; a space that I felt so very connected to and that allowed for a natural flow and ease for me and my work. This course has done that for me.

    The way Elle creates space for you to tap into your own intuition will completely shift your energy and transform your business and YOU in magical ways. You will come away with so much clarity, confidence in your work and a beautiful online sacred space in which to share what you offer. You will come away with so much clarity, confidence in your work and a beautiful online sacred space in which to share what you offer.

    And you will know you were empowered to create it YOURSELF! THAT is a very liberating feeling.

    Because of Elle’s beautiful course, her guidance and the supportive community atmosphere she has created, I feel even more deeply connected to my offerings than I ever have before. The experience was, indeed, a coming home to myself in so many ways. I am beyond grateful.

    This retreat is for you if:

    • You wish to empower yourself to be able to manage, change, and add to your own website
    • You are able to be devoted to this work in the month leading up to the retreat
    • You like to mix the sacred with the practical and are really jazzed at the idea of going through the creation process with ritual and spirit infused into the way you work.
    • You have a portable computer - or not! We have the ability to provide a laptop workspace for 1 person, and can support you in renting a laptop for the week.

    This journey is not for you if:

    • You are an aspiring designer - this is specifically for non-designer entrepreneurs who wish to feel confident within their web design.
    • You aren't sure what your business is focused on or what your mission + vision is - this course is for those who are clear in their services and know what their work is in this world
    • You don't enjoy meditation, reflection, or inner work and just want a website created for you - this process is all about translating your inner work and world into an outward expression of you.
     
    Squaresapace Sovereignty came into my life at exactly the perfect moment. I’d built several websites on squarespace before and was ready to up-level my skills for a relaunch of my brand.

    Elle is a fantastic teacher & guide! She holds space beautifully, meeting each participant exactly where they are on the journey of website creation. She is a clear and organized presenter which is important when dealing with all the nuances of website creation.

    I love how she weaves spirituality into the program with tarot, visualizations & meditations.

    About me:

    I support inspired entrepreneurs in strengthening their intuition and inherent gifts so that they can make decisions in their business from a connected and confident place. 

    Here at Drawing Within Design, I hold space as a spirited designer who combines intuition with art to create unique digital products for your business.

    My work stems from a devotion to my training as an educator, yoga teacher, and energy worker, and a personal practice of integrating tarot,  mythology, meditation, and intuitive development into my every day spiritual exploration.  I believe that everyone is intuitive, and our inner wisdom can be uncovered through committed practice and play.

    As someone who has began exploring website design in 1997 (that was 20 years ago!), I feel as though all of my passions - creativity, teaching, and spirituality - combine in the perfect way in this medium.

    I have been integrating my own intuitive and spiritual practice within my work since becoming self-employed 7 years ago.  Listening to my intuition along the way has helped me to show up as fully aligned with my life's purpose and guided by my inner vision.

    You can see my intuition expressed visually with my design work, or listen to me talk about business + intuition in the Integrated Spirit Podcast.  You can also learn more about my design journey here.

    Our guide for this journey:  The Queen of Cups

    The Queen of Cups is the archetype that has been the guiding force behind the creation of this course.  

    She shows up as a leader and sacred space holder sovereign in her creativity.  

    She is able to think outside the box, nurturing to her business and to her sacred online space in a way that honors her heart and intuition.  In this way, she is clear on her vision, and approaches her work with a sense of confidence and inspired flow.

    I love that she has this potent ability to show up as a leader in a way that honors the divine feminine, and channels a sense of flow and adaptability within her work.  

    The Queen of Cups seeks balance in the way that she shows up as an entrepreneur between creative visioning and play and action - she finds the space for both to co-exist.  

    This archetype models for us how we can dive into the depths of the unconscious mind and bring that information and wisdom forward into consciousness.  

    She reminds us that business and creation can be a spiritual practice and a sacred experience.

    If you're all the way down here, you must Have a Question?  
    I might have your answer...

     If not...perhaps you would like to hop on a quick visioning call with me?

    + When + where is the intensive held?

    We'll be gathering from November 2nd - November 9th in Portland, OR. Details about the location will be shared in our connection call.

    + Why do you love Portland so much?

    I'm pretty obsessed with the rose city. It's close to the coast, mountains, and tons of hiking through lush ivy-filled forests. As someone who is a gluten free vegetarian, the restaurant scene here is pretty amazing. I can't wait to show you around! I acknowledge that I am living on land that was wrongfully taken from Chinook, Multnomah, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Tualatin Kalapuya and Molalla tribes.

    + What if I'm not able to travel right now?

    Then I invite you to have a look at the next virtual Squarespace Sovereignty Offering here.

    + I want to build a graphic designing business - is this course for me?

    Unfortunately, no. I've created this course with the intention of supporting inspired entrepreneurs in building a website for other kinds of businesses. This is a course for coaches, activists, writers, mentors, yoga teachers, visual artists, jewlery makers, tarot readers, photographers, energy workers, ballet dancers, hula hoopers, gluten free cookie bakers, etc.

    + I already have a logo designed...can I still join?

    Yes, of course! If you already have a logo designed and have access to the file it was originally created in (in other words, the Photoshop or Illustrator file), then I would love to have you join us for this course.

    You will save a little bit on the total cost of Squarespace Sovereignty.

    Contact me and I can fill you in on the details.

    + I already have a Squarespace site but am rebranding / looking to solidify my ability to make my site's design align with my brand's energy / shifting my niche / wish to scrap my old template and start fresh...can I still join?

    Yes, of course! You'll find that this course will support you in creating the shift you need within your website, brand, and copy. This will be a fantastic way to ground into the support you need to get your online space to be a place where your energy and work in this moment really shines.

    If you are keeping a previously made logo design and have access to the file it was originally created in (in other words, the Photoshop or Illustrator file), then you will save a little bit on the total cost of Squarespace Sovereignty.

    Contact me and I can fill you in on the details.

    + I currently have a site on Wordpress but I am SO ready to switch to Squarespace - will this course support me?

    Yes, absolutely! I'll show you how you can even carry your blog posts over from Wordpress so you can keep your valuable content.
