Creativity Boot Camp
Re-Discover Your Creative Spirit
"Creativity is God's gift to us. Using our creativity is our gift back to God." - Julia Cameron
In this two-day workshop, international bestselling author Julia Cameron will dedicate herself to helping you identify and unravel old and unworkable ideas that block your creative spirit.
Is it time to stop telling yourself it’s too late? Is it time to stop waiting until you make enough money to do something you love? Is it time to stop thinking it's just your ego whenever you yearn for a more fulfilling life? Do you yearn for creative adventure? Are you hungry for a deeper and fuller life? Do you wish you could find a more authentic 'you'?
Join bestselling author Julia Cameron for an intensive two-day trek through your creative kingdom. Tools will include Morning Pages and Artist Dates, and the weekend itself will be a mix of lecture, Q&A, and experiential work in small groups. Expect this course to jump-start your creative process, refresh your own thinking around creativity, and introduce you to a creative community.
Crucially, this workshop will help you to reimagine the very concept of creativity. When we think about creativity we tend to think of it only in the context of art. Though important, art is only a small part of creativity. We use creativity in every aspect of our lives, everyday. As humans we have a very strong need to express ourselves and we're happiest when other people understand what we are trying to get across to them.
Your creative spirit can express itself in so many ways in the world, through music, dancing, play, singing, poetry, and painting. Your creative spirit can also show up in the ways you relate to others, handle difficulties, and find innovative solutions to your life's problems.
Our creative spirit has the ability to imagine and express from a deep place of authenticity. In this place we join with the divine in the ongoing creation of the universe. Julia believes that we often speak of God as' the creator' without realizing that "creator" is another word for 'artist'.
"I have learned, as a rule of thumb, never to ask whether you can do something. Say, instead, that you are doing it. Then fasten your seat belt. The most remarkable things follow."
