What we're about

This meetup group is for people working through the creativity book 'The Artist's Way' by Julia Cameron. Each week we review our work on a specific chapter of the group, including our experience of the Morning Pages and the Artist's Date. The format of the group is based on Julia Cameron's sacred circle concept and if the group decides to do some exercises as part of the meeting, they will be in 'creative clusters'.

This group will be self governing with meetups being suggested by members.

Check out the Message Board for Artist's Date ideas and to share your views on future meetups.

Mutual Fanclub: Developed by members who have completed the AW course, this monthly meeting helps you to acheive your creative goals by giving you what you need most - a personal cheerleading group! Watch out for our special six-month project building to a Mutual Fanclub Showcase in spring.

Week 3 review - Artists Way Summer group (Thursdays)

Location visible to members

This is the fourth meeting of the Winter group which is working through the Artist's Way book by Julia Cameron. We'll be reviewing the Week 3 chapter of the book. To get the most out of this meeting, you need to have started doing Morning Pages and gone on an Artist's Date. If you can do some of the tasks in this week's chapter too, even better! If this is your first meeting, you'll need to pay a one-off subs fee of £6. You'll also need to buy a drink or snack from the bar each week but £6 is just for the first week. Please keep your RSVP up to date so we know whether to expect you. Newcomers are welcome this week although we will close the group after the Week 3 meeting, which is this week, so will be the last week for new people to join us. You need to buy a copy of the Artist's Way book and please bring that and a notebook with you! FAQs What will happen at this meetup? At each weekly meeting we'll discuss our progress and experiences with the chapter reading, exercises and creative tools. Is there anything to prepare in advance? In order to take part in this group, you'll need to be committed to doing the Morning Pages every day and an Artist's Date once a week. Also, please read the relevant chapter of the book and, if you have time, do a few of the tasks. You don't have to do all of them, just go for the ones that really appeal to you - and/or really repel you! Does it cost anything? There is a one-off fee of £6 which goes towards the meetup.com subscription costs. Please pay at your first session. **You will also need to order a drink at the bar (soft or not) before the meeting starts. This is a requirement of this group since we are using the space for free.** Note: this group will close to new members AFTER the Week 3 review meeting on June 20. This is a 'Creative Cluster' This is a "creative cluster", not a taught course or therapy group. It is semi-facilitated with your hosts working through the book alongside everyone else. You might like to read the appendix in the book called Trail Mix which covers Julia's concept of Sacred Circles (although we do it our own particular way!) Time, dates and location Megaro Eatery, mezzanine/balcony level, Euston Road every Thursday Please be at the venue from 6:30pm and the meeting will start promptly at 6.40pm. The session will start then and will finish by 8pm at the latest. This group will meet for approx. three months. Any questions? Sunny, Jane and Ren will be your hosts, working through the book with you.
