“Creativity is oxygen for our souls.” Julia Cameron
Everyone is born with a creative side. Whether it’s cooking, drawing, singing, decorating or gardening we all have the ability to tap into our creative self. Tapping into this part helps us connect with our ability to be playful, joyful, loving and passionate. We free our energy and shift from worrying/ruminating about how things are going or how things should/shouldn’t be to living in the present moment.
Living in the moment helps us be open to life…
Living in the present moment is what helps us to attune and connect to life. It is in the present moment that we are connected to body, mind and heart and from this place we can open the door to creativity, possibility, and to transformation.
There are many paths we can use to create positive change. The one we will focus on in the coming 14 weeks (beginning Tuesday, June 4th, 2013 at 6:30pm) is “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron. The group format will be based around the exercises in this book with the purpose of freeing up emotional blocks , exploring creativity and sharing in accountability. It is accountability, dedication and support that helps us connect with our creative potential. This group is limited to 8 participants and costs $35.00 per week/session. Each week we will discuss a chapter from the book and check in regarding progress toward goals, morning pages, and other tasks outlined in the book.
