If Your Writing, Art, or Academic Practice Feels…
Like a Rollercoaster
Marked by ennui, addiction, or depression
And You’re Ready for Your Practice to Feel…
In this Creative Momentum workshop you will:
Transition into a healthier practice
Identify blocks and move through them
Establish balance through creative exercises, ritual, and community
Deepen your understanding of the creative process
Gain skills for confidently bringing your project to completion
You’ll Walk Away with…
A Strategy for Completing Your Project
Content for Your Project
Skills for Creating and Maintaining Balance and Momentum
When our creative practice has lost its romance... and we find our creative process to be stifled by discipline, or not structured enough... and our style of making or writing has run its course…
We’re given the opportunity to grow. Into a more beautiful, compassionate practice.
If you’re a writer who’s been working on that memoir for years…
If you’re a visual artist who is making work but having trouble pulling a show together or submitting for grants and commissions…
If you have a project you let go because you didn’t know how to continue…
The key thing your practice might be missing is a balance between thinking, feeling, and exploring. When thinking and feeling integrate, become balanced, and support each other within us, the art we make becomes limitless.
Join us for a gentle, deep half-day workshop to learn key ways to move from doubt and distraction to writing your book or crafting your project with confidence.
