The Artist’s Way: Creating Life as Art

12-week course starts in January 2019

Max. 10 participants
The Artist’s Way shows us that increased creativity is a teachable, trackable process and that increased creativity makes us happier, healthier, more productive, and more authentic in everything we do.

coCreate the life you dream of.
  • Increase your creativity
  • Transform your current situation with compassion
  • Learn about yourself and others
  • Unlock old patterns and limited beliefs

This course is not about teaching artistic techniques but rather is much closer to a step-by-step personal development course. It is based on themes from the famous book: The Artist’s Way, A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity by Julia Cameron, which you will need purchase.

Along side your creativity seeking kindred spirits you will:
  • Do speed writing exercises from the book
  • Play word games that reveal insights
  • Share with one another
  • Inspire each other with weekly breakthroughs
