Life is all about emotions.

How you feel determines what you do.

What you do determines your results or lack of results.

Here's the Problem.

We are taught that circumstances are responsible for our emotions and our results which leaves us either:

1. Trying to control the Universe.


2. Isolating because trying to control everything is impossible.

avoid emotion

It's exhausting and it doesn't work.

HJU is a practical emotional education for our modern world.


Our Emotional Education has Failed.

If it truly worked, we wouldn't be facing the mental and emotional issues we have in society today.

The self-help industry is a MULTI-BILLION dollar industry yet, we're overmedicated, in debt, obese, lonely, and unfulfilled.

Instead of focusing on disempowering questions for our brain, CONSUMING more information and studying other people's work, maybe now is the perfect time to STUDY YOURSELF.


What if this is your time to question your unexamined thoughts and limiting beliefs?

What if this is the time to clean up unhelpful emotions that hold you back?


You won’t find out how to do that by studying someone else’s path.

You won’t find that in a book or podcast.

You will find out how to do that with a pen, paper, your brain and your heart.


You learn how to do that by studying YOURSELF with these tools.

You'll uncover your disempowering stories on YOUR blank page.

You'll EDIT your disempowering stories and create new helpful beliefs on YOUR blank page.

You will become the teacher you’ve been looking for, all along.

Enroll to study yourself & edit the unhelpful stories in your brain.

The HJU Curriculum.

CORE CURRICULUM How to Use the Heartwork Journaling Tools to Coach Yourself.

  • How to Use the Equation of Emotion.
  • How to Use Your Emotional Global Positioning System.

Monthly Curriculum.

Each month there are 3 brand new lessons.


Week 1 LIVE Coaching Call

Topic Lesson & Guided Self Coaching Q & A

The first week of each month we'll do a deep dive on using these tools on the topic of the month.

This training will ensure you master using these tools to coach yourself to the results you want.


You'll submit questions to receive guided coaching live.

You'll learn from other people's questions how to use these tools on REAL-LIFE specific goals, obstacles and challenges.


Week 2 Heartwork Journaling Lesson

Powerful Play with a Purpose - Healing and Thriving.

The second week of each month, you'll get a brand new, simple creativity Heartwork Journaling lesson.

These lessons bring extraordinary self compassion, kindness and color to deep inner work. 


Heartwork Journaling lessons are designed to help you see your thoughts, emotions and how they create your results.

From there, I help you use the tools to coach yourself to more of the results you do want.


Week 3 Lesson

Build emotional confidence with Doodle Your Emotions (Mindful Emotions) Cards Lesson 

The third week of each month, you'll follow along to create 2 doodles about 2 emotions. One of the emotions feels good or neutral. The other feels bad.

You'll do a deep dive on each to gain awareness and understanding to how this emotion shows up for you, how it can get in the way of the results you want and how to process each emotion in a healthy manner.


Week 4 No Call

No Call to Catch up and  Practice the Tools.

A week off each month gives you important white space.

It's important to me to NOT give so much that you don't have time to self coach.


During week 4 of each month, catch up on anything you missed from the previous lessons, practice your self coaching or enjoy more soul soothing creativity in the Study Vault.

More praise for HJU...


"Exceeded My Expectations"

"I was expecting something more like the crafty online classes I do, which would have been fine.

Instead, I am so pleased with the caliber of the site and the content, not to mention the quantity and variety of lessons available.

I truly feel like I am enrolled in an institution of higher learning!"

Suzan Flipping


"Confident, Not Doubting Myself."

"I'm confident for the first time in a long time. I'm not hoping, I'm not wishing, I'm not wondering, I'm not doubting myself.

I am confident that I can get there and it is all through doodling, journaling and heart work journaling. Thank You."


Elizabeth Allbright


"Changed My Life."

"I have tried therapy but always left sessions either feeling the same or worse. I wanted "tools" but never got them. People would say that you can "choose your thoughts" but I never understood how that worked.

With the EGPS and the Equation of Emotion, I now have a tool that works. This has truly been a lifeline for me and I am eternally grateful."


Avis Board



"You used my weight loss Equation of Emotion in an example. Since then I am loving and appreciating my body. I am making choices that are best for my body.

What is so crazy is that it hasn't been hard and I feel great in my skin now! I got on the scale Saturday and was amazed to realize that I've lost nearly 10 pounds in the last 2 months. I'm on my way."

Denise Carroll

There is a private password protected Member's Area where you can login to access any of the call replays or worksheets  any time - day or night.

If you sign up for the monthly option, you’ll have access to the live calls, replays and materials for 30 days. As you continue each month, you'll continue to have access to the live calls, replays and materials for as long as you continue to be enrolled in the University.

If you decide to cancel membership, think of it like a gym membership, your utility company or Netflix, once you cancel you no longer have access to the member portal, live calls or replays.

HJU is a living, breathing, evolving curriculum. It's not a static course that doesn't change, evolve and grow. Every single month, there are brand new lessons, new tools, new creativity lessons, new prompts to help you learn to coach yourself to or through anything. There is brand new incredible content monthly so when someone cancels access to the ever-growing curriculum and library ends.

Heartwork Journaling certification will focus on how to create a safe container to teach )for your students and yourself as Instructor, give access to use full lesson plans, plus train you on how to fill, price and market your own Heartwork Journaling groups and programs.

This is SUCH an incredible addition to therapy. Many HJU students share their Heartwork with their therapists.

They way you do that is up to you and your therapist. Students tell us that Heartwork Journaling opens up different awarenesses and insights to accelerate the results they're experiencing in therapy.

Heartwork Journaling is for small "t" traumas like daily stress, non-life-threatening injuries, emotional abuse from another person (or from yourself to yourself), death of a pet, bullying or harassment, loss of a significant relationship.

Think of it this way, Heartwork Journaling is like you taking responsibility for brushing your teeth on a daily basis with your everyday mental and emotional health. Therapy is like going to get needed and helpful work on your teeth by a dentist who has tools to help with a root canal or tooth extraction.
