The Artist’s Way is 12 week course based on the book by Julia Cameron

A course in discovering and recovering your creative self  – A spiritual path to higher creativity

Are there Artists whom you resent?

Do you tell yourself…

                   “I should wait until I have enough money to do the thing I really love”

“I could do that if only….”                “It’s just my ego”

“It’s too late for me now”                                          “Dreams don’t matter”
“My family or friends would not approve”                “Creativity is a luxury”

As you learn to recognise, nurture and protect your inner Artist, you will be able to move beyond pain and creative constriction

You will learn new ways to recognise and resolve fear, remove emotional scar tissue and strengthen your confidence

Damaging old ideas about creativity will be explored and discarded

Working with the book,

you will experience an intensive, guided encounter with your own creativity…

your private villains, champions, wishes, fears, dreams, hopes and triumphs

The experience will make you excited, depressed, angry, afraid, joyous and ultimately more free
