Do you have creative urges to paint, draw or create patterns but don’t? Do you make beautiful quilts, but get tired of

playing it safe? Do you long to travel and explore but put off planning the trip? Did you start the artist’s way on your

own, but didn’t finish because life got in the way or you became frustrated with the process.

Best selling author, Julia Cameron shares powerful tools for the journey to discovering the creative being in you:

morning pages and weekly artist dates. Be willing to put in the time and energy to work thru the blocks that keep you

from expressing your creativity!

The artist’s way program is an undertaking that requires your commitment to self. During the week that we explore a

sense of compassion, Cameron talks about the blocked artist. “Blocked artists are not lazy. They are blocked. The

blocked artist spends energy on self-hatred, on regret, on grief and on jealousy.” Wouldn’t it be nice to spend energy

creating on purpose?
