Meet Lisa Sonora
Lisa Sonora is an American artist, author, and intrepid world traveler, who wants to live in a world where everyone remembers that they are an artist. Originally trained as an art therapist, and a long-time student of meditation, Lisa brings a compassionate and contemplative approach to her teaching.
Her first book, The Creative Entrepreneur: A DIY Guidebook to Making Business Ideas Real (Quarry, 2008) launched a movement that has helped thousands to live their creative dreams.
A sought after facilitator, she’s led international creativity workshops on five continents for more than 20 years: at schools in Africa, inside tech companies, coach training programs, churches and zendos, and at retreat centers and universities. She trains others to lead creativity workshops in her Creative Journey Facilitator Training program.
Her 30 Day Journal Project brings together a global audience online twice a year to celebrate the power and magic of creative journaling.
Lisa lives in Oaxaca, Mexico with her sweetheart Alex, where they host artist retreats and residencies. Lisa’s memoir, Sketchbooks: My Personal Creative Practice, is comprised of journals she kept during her move to Mexico.
