WHAT are the Slow Branding Sessions?

A Meditative Creative Practice

Imagine you finally have the clarity to bring your vision to life in the way you always dreamed of, and in the process of making this happen, you feel yourself softening into a sense of calm, as your creative channels open up to renewed inspiration. 

This is what it's like in the Slow Branding Sessions, a spacious 12-month journey of gentle teachings, meditative practices, creative resources, and an original collection of visual art. There are no generic brand questionnaires or templates. This is a self-nourishing ecosystem of creativity. And what you see here is an embodiment of the beauty that can blossom from this slow and deeply transformational journey.

Up until now, you may have walked past other people’s metaphorical gardens, wishing you had the space and energy to create something like that for yourself. Maybe you imagined that other people had the time or the touch but you didn’t. 

Well, my love, where our journey begins is by planting that first seed."

Our collective mindset is shifting toward slowing down and nurturing more meaningful connections. And you want to be part of this cultural (r)evolution. You also believe in aligning with initiatives that give back, so you appreciate that a portion of all proceeds will be donated to support environmental conservation.

You want to contribute value
and meaning to your community,
and in a more thoughtful way.

When you share content right now, it's all over the place, and you want to be more intentional about your approach. You are ready to reawaken your creative inspiration and you know that this means allowing enough space for the magic to unfold. You've just been waiting for a sign that you can slow down and do it this way.

You are ready to feel inspired
again and restore a sense of ease
to your creative process.

What you envision extends beyond the imaginative limits of generic stock content, and yet, you’re not quite in the market for hiring a designer and a strategist and a photographer to refresh your look. You have an eye for aesthetics and would love to just be gently guided with a more compelling and cohesive creative direction. 

You dream of your brand looking
as beautiful and cohesive as the
ones on your vision board.

Blossom into a New Chapter

When you learn to slow down in your process, what you put out into the world will have genuine meaning and emotional resonance with the people it's intended for. They will, in turn, know that they can expect a meaningful relationship with you, and that is what will distinguish your brand from the noise.  

When you learn to be more intentional about what you create, you will finally clear space for fresh ideas and inspiration. And it will restore a sense of calm in your own state of being, while expanding your perspective around what is possible. This is ultimately what will ensure a sustainable endeavor, not only for those who experience it, but for you while creating it.

And so, this is your invitation to slow down and welcome these thoughtful practices that will redefine the way you bring your work out into the world, and the way you inspire others, too. Honor the vision you hold for yourself and embrace the creative possibilities of this new chapter.

FAQ

Once you sign up, you will receive a welcome email giving you access to the following: an audio welcome from me, the first chapter of the Earth Collection photos and designs, a beautifully laid out guide with teachings and practices to provide you with the foundation for your Slow Branding journey, an audio meditation, and a few additional gifts as a surprise. 

Every month you will receive teachings and practices centered around a creative strategy, such as, “How to edit your photos for visual cohesion” or “Sourcing creative inspiration where you live, with what you have access to.” And each season you will receive 25 new photos and 15 new social media designs. You will also have the opportunity to schedule a 90-minute private consultation with me, where we will go deep into strategies around your creative idea or brand, and I will provide you with more personalized guidance for your journey. This is an offering I may only be including this time around.

There will also be a recorded Q&A session each quarter. So, altogether this experience includes: foundational teachings and integrative practices that are usually reserved for private clients, 100 photos, 60 designs, audio meditations, 12 monthly guided strategies, 4 community Q&A sessions, and a 90-minute private consultation customized to you. 

What you see is what you will get, so with the exception of the generic device mock-up and the portraits of the Earth Mama muses, all the images on this site are included in the Earth Collection, so they will be yours!

To gently encourage you to slow down and be intentional about the story you’re weaving. Unloading all of the content on you at once goes against the principle central to the Slow Branding  experience, which is that quality storytelling and community resonance are rooted in sustainability rather than speed. There is a spaciousness inherent to building something of value and meaning, and that teaching is at the heart of the Slow Branding Sessions.

Since there are a lot of moving parts on the backend, such as the four drops of the Earth Collection and the monthly guided practices, it is easier for me as a one womxn studio to manage all of this collectively. So, I've organized enrollment alongside the seasons. Each group will have their own unique password to everything, and the password will reflect your season :)

The monthly teachings will vary slightly from season to season, so enroll whenever you feel called to begin this journey. And know that you may enjoy all of this in your own rhythm, and at your own self-guided pace. There is no feeling "behind" in the Slow Branding Sessions.

The doors for the Summer season will close on July 10th, so that I can be fully present in my creative process of sharing my offerings and showing up in my support. The doors will then open back up in September, and then close again at the end of that month. 



Your access to this content will not expire, so it's all yours to use and enjoy! Flow at your own pace, let the teachings marinate, and savor all the spaciousness inspired by this experience.

As part of receiving this experience, the photos and designs in the Earth Collection are yours to weave into your own brand. So you may use them on your website, blog, social media channels, newsletter, courses, workbooks, etc. You are also free to add any additional photo filters your heart desires and to crop, collage, rotate, and/or resize the images. You may NOT, however, resell any form of these photos and designs, or distribute them to clients or friends who have not paid for the Slow Branding Sessions. You can read more about this in the Usage Agreement.

If you've purchased this experience then crediting me for the imagery is not required. I do love getting to see and celebrate who is on this Slow Branding    journey,  so if you feel inspired to tag me, I’m at @inkandpulp on Instagram. And if you'd like to share about the Slow Branding Sessions or my philosophy, please do credit me for that :)

SM

No, and that is because the photos and designs have all been thoughtfully crafted and curated as a collection, intended to accompany the teachings and practices you'll receive along your journey. This multi-layered experience is part of what is uniquely rewarding about the Slow Branding Sessions. It is an incredibly rich, holistic experience with each part supporting the whole, like leaves on a tree. 


Since you immediately gain access to my digital resources, I cannot offer refunds. 

I can say that if you resonate with the message laid out here and the visuals of this site, then you will likely savor every bit of the Slow Branding Sessions. If you do not, then you probably won't.

I designed the Slow Branding Sessions for people who feel (or want to feel) an emotional connection to their work and understand that the "slow" in all of this is about the big picture of building something sustainable, not skimming the surface for immediate conversions. What this experience offers is a move away from the hustle and grind mindset toward a healthier practice of nurturing meaningful and lasting quality of work, as well as deeper relationship with yourself and your community. This is a space that celebrates the emotional, physical, and creative sustainability of your process over the speed of your production. 

And while it is transformational, this kind of slow, thoughtful work is meant as a long-term investment. So this is not an adequate short-term fix for anyone in a dire financial situation with their business. This is also not intended for anyone who is expecting the work to be done for them. There is a rich and robust journey laid out for you, but it ultimately comes down to you following through. 

And lastly, even if you do not have a business, but there's an idea or offering of some sort quietly germinating within you, this would be a beautiful journey for you to bring that to blossom. This is actually the intention of one of the Earth Mama muses featured in the Earth Collection :)

about THE CREATOR

Gentle nurturer of safe spaces and quiet observer of visual detail, my story is woven with threads from across creative disciplines. With over 20 years of experience studying visual expression, my perspective is uniquely multi-faceted as a brand strategist, photographer, writer, editor, designer, art historian, educator, empath, and curator all blended into one. Since I work with only a few private clients a year, and it is deeply transformational for their life and business, I wanted to offer my teachings to a broader audience. And so, the Slow Branding Sessions came to bloom.

My work has been FEATURED IN:

I would like to honor those who feel deeply aligned with this philosophy and cannot legitimately afford the experience, so I'm offering a few partial scholarships for those who have endured the historical inequities of racism and discrimination because they are Black, Indigenous, POC, and/or trans. Please only apply if this is how you self-identify.

If you feel deeply connected to the philosophy of the Slow Branding Sessions and know in your soul that you are called to join this experience, but would legitimately need financial support, I would love to hear your story and see if I can help you access this experience with a partial scholarship.
