The Artist's Way - Facilitator: Dorayne Breedlove
The Artist's Way is a 12 part series based on the book, The Artist's Way, by Julia Cameron. The series will be facilitated by Dorayne Breedlove starting on January 25, 2017 and will meet monthly from 7:00-9:00pm. The cost is $20 per session. The Monthly Theme for the first class is: Discover a Sense of Safety. This month initiates your creative discovery. We establish a sense of safety which enables us to explore our creativity with less fear.

(Re)Connect with your creativity! The Artist's Way is a spiritual path, initiated and practiced through creativity. The premise: Creativity and Spirituality come from the same place. Creative discovery and exploration are achieved through readings, exercises, tasks, and check-ins. This 12-part series taken once a month is for anyone interested in practicing the art of creative living. Come each month or any month you can. Connect with your creativity. Create pathways in your consciousness through which the creative force can operate. We are creative beings, our lives become our work of art. Practice through Morning Pages, and The Artist's Date. You can learn to overcome the negative human tendencies of jealousy, fear, addiction through connecting to your creativity.
