The Artist’s Way for the New World-An Online Series
August 8 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The time is now.
The world is going to be radically different going forward, and in this time of upheaval, we will need people who can think creatively.
Creative people stepped up during lockdown. Perhaps you’ve seen all the art on social media–classes and performances galore, people making masks, making memes, and 3D-printing ventilator parts. Now’s the time to use our creativity to imagine the new world, a world of peace, justice, accountability. Where we dismantle outdated structures, and build a new society. To do this, we need to dismantle the notion that says creativity is only for the talented.
Unleash your inner artist, musician, writer, crafter, dancer, singer….and let your genius nurture and inform the important work you do, going forward.
“Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow.”–Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
Join me for a 13-week online circle, using Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way. I’ve been using TAW since 1993 when it appeared on the shelf of my small town bookstore, and can vouch for its effectiveness. It has gotten me unstuck a number of times over the years. In this online gathering, will hold a space for play and gentle exploration. Now is a good time to reinvent yourself.
“The tools of The Artist’s Way, which have been working for several decades in ‘regular times,’ are also tools that will work for us in our current, ‘irregular’ times.The tools are aimed at unlocking creativity. They give us a sense of optimism, they give us a sense of adventure, and they help to fight the claustrophobia that many of us may be feeling.”– Julia Cameron, 04-06-20
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” –Audre Lorde
