Writers on Demand: Aneesah Bakker

Aneesah Bakker has led the The Artist’s Way Book Club every month at the ABC Treehut in The Hague for the past year.  In this series of workshops, based on Julia Cameron’s bestseller (and ABC Evergreen) The Artist’s Way, she has helped people discover (or recover) their creativity, ultimately letting them take charge of the direction it takes them in.

Now, in a beautiful artistic circle, Aneesah is the proud author of her own empowering book, The Thankful Way Journal, published through ABC’s Espresso Book Machine!

As she describes it, her book is “a whole new experience of gratitude journaling.”  It features a “simple, effective, fun and step by step approach. You are introduced to the miracle question, appreciative inquiry and TA-DA to AHA checklists to add more power to the gratitude practice of listing 5 things you are grateful for. You will be introduced to heart charting, a new form of doodling that anyone can use to connect better to one’s creative side.”  The Thankful Way Journal is a combination book-and-journal, giving you the sense of being a part of Aneesah’s free-flowing workshops that open up and boost your originality.  Aneesah’s warmth and encouragement will have you scaling heights of creativity you didn’t know you had in you!

You can buy The Thankful Way Journal in both our stores, freshly printed on one of our EBMs.

Aneesah has also set up a Facebook page and a blog so you can follow her progress in becoming a published author, and to connect with like-minded people.  And finally, this fall she will host three The Thankful Way Journal Book Club sessions at the ABC Treehut in The Hague on September 20th, October 18th, and November 15th (be sure to sign up for our monthly Events Mailing to get advance notice of all the details!).
