Authentic Allowing Calendar haul video

It's January 22nd! Do you have a calendar for 2018?  If not, you can always get the Authentic Allowing calendar, and have it start, any month you like! It's cool because you can start your year at any month, so say you get one now, you can have yours begin in February and end in January of next year. The year begins with the month of your choice when you order it. It's a feel good calendar. The artwork and awareness practices in it are designed to create calm well being in one's life. Here's a "haul" video with Kim Jordan of Emerge Inner Life Coaching, taking a first look at the calendar. She and I designed it together. Although Kim lives in North Carolina and I live in Los Angeles, we used Skype to share screens and collaborate fully on how we wanted this project to look and feel. We are offering the Authentic Allowing Calendar through a print on demand website called Red Bubble. Each calendar is printed when one is ordered. We love the fact that they do a great job matching color and print quality to our original intent. Their packaging insures that each calendar is delivered safely and looks beautiful upon receipt. Each month is a large size 11.7 x 16.5 inch print. As you can see in the video, it allows for writing notes for each day, with a nice size for enjoying the art and text. We priced it at $23. Shipping is about $11 within the continental United States, a little pricey but it insures the calendar will get to you safely in a flat cardboard package.

Perpetual Art of Allowing Calendar

Using Adobe Illustrator, vector art generating software, I've begun experimenting with creating very simple digital drawings. This calendar features a series of 12 drawings combined with self reflection practices designed with transformational life coach and great friend, Kim Jordan (  This is our second calendar collaboration. We wanted to pare down design and text into the simplest forms possible so that each month was very easy to understand.  Self reflection is about looking inside of oneself to understand who we are. It takes giving yourself time to just quiet down and check inside for answers about how we are feeling, what we are wanting, and what we are doing. I began a personal growth quest in the 1990's because I realized that if I wanted to have more peace and love in the world, I needed to first find peace and love within myself. Self reflection takes a lot of humility, and it is an ongoing work in progress. It's learning to be very honest about how you are feeling in any given moment. I wanted to create a easy to use tool based on personal growth practices that have been most beneficial to me over the years, by collaborating with Kim Jordan who has been on the same journey of developing inner peace, as a way to create external peace. The exercises in the calendar are open to interpretation and are not meant to force any ideology, they are simple tools anyone can use of their own free will. They work like road signs that point to different directions of your choosing. What Kim and I wish is for our project to help manifest more peace in people's internal as well as external lives. This perpetual calendar allows you start the year off at any month, and end exactly one year later.

2017 Self Coaching Calendar

Cover of Be Your Own Coach calendar by artist Hoshi Hana and inner life coach, Kim Jordan.

I’ve just completed a new calendar design project with my great friend, Kim Jordan. Each month focuses on a specific exercise, that in our words, “you can use to resolve inner conflict, deepen your relationships, liberate your essential gifts, fine tune your self awareness, embrace the present moment and engage with the world fully.”
The artwork features a green universal individual who represents the person using the calendar, in a variety of liberated stances related to the exercises. Here is one of our favorite images from March which is about understanding generational perspectives.

Kim is a “inner life” coach who has over 12 years of professional experience helping her clients reveal their best, authentic selves through a practice called VAI (Voice Activated Integration) that she developed along with her colleague, John Hoyle. She designed the exercises, wrote all of the text and guided the ideas for the images. I designed the calendar, created the images and helped edit the text. As one of Kim and John’s clients, I have always felt their techniques could be shared with others to use on their own, with meaningful results. The Be Your Own Coach Calendar is not a replacement for traditional therapy, psychiatry, or a professional coaching relationship. However, for people who are already on a path of inner self refining, it can provide a positive boost towards self awareness and liberated, presence.

Words, like  inner awareness  and authentic self, might sound hokey. We use them to describe a process of self knowledge. I am a fan of personal growth, and have been on a quest to learn how to navigate each moment, to be as authentic as possible, with myself and others. It’s been a continuous journey I’ll probably be on for the rest of my life. I believe that everyone will find a path that will suit their own ways. This project is an offering that Kim and I hope will help.

If you know of a special someone who would benefit from what the Be Your Own Coach Calendar offers, please consider gifting it this season or sharing the following links with them. It’s available in medium and large sizes through my store at Zazzle is a print-on-demand (POD) company which prints items as they are ordered.
