Welcome to the next level of The Artist's Way...Julia Cameron's The Vein of Gold - A Journey to Your Creative Heart!
Julia Cameron draws from her remarkable teaching experience to help readers reach out into ever-broadening creative horizons. As in The Artist’s Way, she combines eloquent essays with playful and imaginative experiential exercises to make The Vein of Gold an extraordinary book of learning-through-doing. Inspiring essays on the creative process and more than one hundred engaging and energizing tasks involve the reader in “inner play,” leading to authentic growth, renewal, and healing.
Whether or not you have experienced The Artist's Way, The Vein of Gold will take you deep into your own creative rebirth! This 8 session, bimonthly workshop will meet on the second and fourth Thursdays from August 14th through November 20th. It will be an exploration of seven "Kingdoms" that will take us deeper down the rabbit hole of self-awareness, joy of creativity and transformation:
• The Kingdom of Story - where language animates the creation of our guiding self-image. [8/14]
• The Kingdom of Sight - where we learn to receive information holistically and honor our most personal impressions, intuition and feelings. [8/28]
• The Kingdom of Sound - where we tune in to the melodic flow of creative life, literally making each day more "sound". [9/11]
• The Kingdom of Relationship - where we sharpen our skills and develop the will to chose the companions we can trust. [9/25]
• The Kingdom of Attitude - where the negative self-talk that weighs us down is cast off as we learn to pursue our creative efforts with lighter hearts. [10/9]
• The Kingdom of Spirituality - where we learn to examine and strengthen conscious contact with the higher realms for a working partnership with unsuspected inner resources. [10/23]
• The Kingdom of Possibility - where we come to inhabit our creative life vision. [11/13]
Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the eighth evening will be a final check-in and celebration will be on November 20th.
