About the Event
Creativity takes time! Results can be years in the making, even a lifetime. Besides this, expressing ourselves creatively can feel really scary. It takes courage to stand by ourselves and explore our own creativity.
I've loved running Serious Play: Kickstart your Creativity, and I am now offering a longer programme, at a slower-burn, more spacious, pace with lots of room for growth, harvest, compost and new germination.
Creativity works at so many levels: it thrives in the art of living as much as in the creation of art; each person’s expression of their creativity is unique, providing joy and healing, and spreading more creativity in its wake - it’s catching! I love that it's the grit in the oyster which produces the pearl! In other words, it is the difficulties we meet along the way that often announce our creative gifts and call to action. It's rich work.
This course is for you
- If you feel you are creative, and would like to let that develop
- If you have been creative in the past, and have experienced powerful blocks or 'failures' along the way
- If you'd love to be more creative, but struggle to find the time
- If you wish you could be more open and playful about sharing your creative efforts
- If you are seeking to find or develop your unique creative path and purpose
- If you would love to find greater confidence and ease in your creative self expression
What is it?
This nine month online course offers an inspiring, nurturing programme of gestation for your creative expression to come to fruition in a meaningful way. The course is inspired by Julia Cameron’s Artist’s Way, Process Oriented Psychology practice and Positive Psychology coaching. It is also informed by the late Dr Chris Seeley’s Artful Organisation, by Deep Ecology and the tutor’s own experience as an artist and creative change coach.
