At a transition point? Embarking on the second half of life? Adjusting to new ways of being at work? Being at home? Being creative?

With Never Too Late to Begin Again as our companion, we’ll explore how our creative energies can be used in new ways, re-engage those we may have left behind, and discover possibilities for more expansive creativity, wherever life is taking us. Creativity is our co-pilot on the journey to our most authentic selves. Through hands-on exercises, insightful reading, and take-home prompts for thinking, doing, and playing to keep you inspired, you will see your creativity blossom. No art experience required, just a desire to begin the new year with a refreshed outlook on our creativity as life changes.
