The Artist’s Way, by Julia Cameron, is an international best-seller that contains “a course in discovering and recovering your creative self.”
I have been working with Julia Cameron’s wonderful books for five years now, and continue to write morning pages as she recommends, each morning. The practice of writing three long-hand pages every morning, first thing, is a great gift. I’m lucky, as I have rarely found that I don’t want to do them, more that just sometimes it is hard to make time (they have been known to get done at 10pm at night on occasion). It is revealing, healing, enlightening, moderating, assuring and it has brought to light so many ideas, directions, pieces of advice and comfort that I couldn’t even begin to count them. I love sharing how successful they’ve been for me, and have decided to start hosting/facilitating sessions for others to find out how useful The Artist’s Way is.
There is a beautiful little shop in the next suburb that I fell in love with the first time I walked past it. (It has always been a dream of mine to own a shop with a dwelling behind/above it and I’m always looking out for them). When I was thinking about running these workshops, I thought it would be a perfect venue. It is intimate, yet spacious, it is a print-maker’s studio and it has the most awesome north/eastern facing windows. So I plucked up the courage to contact the print-maker who has encouraged me with my ideas. The result is The Artist’s Way in May.
This 6 week workshop series offers you the space to work through weekly activities contained in The Artist’s Way in a supportive small group setting. It covers the first half of the book as a form of discovery. This course will help you to listen to your inner voice and discover your talents whether your medium be writing, painting or singing (or something else you are yet to discover). The emphasis of the course is to feel safe while exploring your path to creativity.
Each workshop will last for around 2 1/2 hours with tea/coffee and morning tea provided (please advise any dietary requests by email).
Let the north/east facing windows and the arty interior of the gorgeous Merri Creek Studio light your creative fire in Artist’s Way in May.
