do you long for more fun, more flair, more focus, more creativity? spend four sultry summer saturday afternoons with me reviving your spirit, unleashing your inner artist, taking action toward the life you desire, and relishing in a supportive circle with other like-minded women. during our time together, we will work through the bestseller the artist’s way by julia cameron, while also playing with concepts from 12 secrets of highly creative women by gail mcmeekin and my book, hip tranquil chick, due out november 2006. we will also be setting creative goals, practicing yoga, and participating in artistic play.
for insight into the program, read below:
"thanks again for running such a wonderful group. the artist's way has really changed my life of late. since it started i have sent out a new book proposal, gotten into digital video, and started a children's book with a friend who is an artist. what an amazing yield!"
"thank you, the circle has truly enriched my life. it was a safe, fun environment to start exploring some hard issues — and i finally got to read that damn book that was sitting and gathering dust on my book shelf for so many years! the women in the group were also wonderful. all in all, it really made living in dc better for me — i feel like i'm not alone in my journey to creativity and joy."
"i realize all i have done over the course of the circle that i probably wouldn't have done if i hadn't been prompted or encouraged by the group. camping in the woods, attending various retreats, made some great friends. i feel like i've made enormous leaps and bounds in other ways. i like where the process has taken me, and am looking forward to seeing where else i might go."
