Do you have a longing to be creative, but can’t seem to make progress?

This seven step journey is designed to help you reveal your unique creative voice and to empower you to follow it.

We’ll use the tools of journaling, meditation, sketching and art making, along with select readings to help you find your inspiration. Each week will be an exploration of a different facet of the creative process. We’ll search together with a sense of dedication and a spirit of fun. During the class, you’ll complete a Creative Project of your own design, and leave “The Cocoon” with a map to help you continue your creative journey after the class has ended.

What we’ll focus on each week.

Week One : Fear & Hope

Discovering what stops you from being creative… and moving past it.

Week Two : Space & Time

Overcoming two big obstacles to creative work.

Week Three : Experiments & Adventures

Exploring and collecting what inspires you.


Develop a creative idea and bring it into reality.

Week Five : Labor & Critique

Doing the work of “doing the work”, plus learning to judge in an empowering way.

Week Six : Breaking the Cocoon

Letting your work be received.

Week Seven : The Creative Cycle

Moving forward… Create a map to help you stay motivated in the face of the inevitable ups and downs of creative work.

When: Coming in January 2018!
