Bless not Impress™ Workshops

The Bless not Impress™ Workshop is our foundational workshop. It is offered as a 4-hour workshop, as a module of the 8 session “At Home with Heartistry” workshop and also at the Heartistry Experience. The essential teachings in the Bless not Impress™ module form the basis for the rest of the teachings on generous living and hospitality. This module contains these topics among others:

  • Learn the difference between entertaining and hospitality

  • Overcome hindrances that prevent you from being hospitable

  • Be inspired by the Golden and Silver Thread stories

Lyn Johnson developed these materials in 1993 and has taught and led sessions encouraging people to “Bless not Impress” ever since then. After completing the course, attendees receive the highly coveted Bless not Impress™ apron! See more photos in the Gallery.
