The Listening Path
Let’s get intentional about nurturing our creativity and becoming more grounded by listening to our environment, those around us, and most importantly, our own voice. Using The Artist’s Way author Julia Cameron’s newest book, The Listening Path, as our guide, we will explore how we can connect more deeply with our creative energies, and actively engage them in ways that are easy, fun, and doable whether we have 5 minutes or a wide open afternoon.
We’ll discover tools that can help us become better listeners – and the gifts we receive from this practice include fresh ideas, greater calm and focus, and solid affirmation that creativity is something that can be part of our lives, every day! No art experience necessary.
Materials Included in the class fee: Mixed Media Journal (that opens flat, and is not spiral bound), Permanent ink pen, and a Water soluble tool for drawing.
Materials Participants will need: A copy of The Listening Path – 6 Weeks to Deeper Creativity by Julia Cameron in paper, Kindle or audio format. This text is not included in the class fee. A selection of favorite pencils, pens, markers or other favorite art materials also welcome!
