Awaken the Creative: 7 Things You Must Know To Live A More Creative, Deliberate, Awakened And Meaningful Life.

In this workshop we will discuss:

* Not Knowing - How removing the expectation to perform, produce and succeed gives us the freedom and space to step into our own creative process.
* Listening - How quieting our space enables us to listen to our inner dialogue and the physical messages we experience in our body while creating.
* Respecting - How we say YES to everything that shows up and find profound respect for all of it too.
* Following the Energy - How following our energy while creating, uncovers an internal intelligence that guides us to exactly where we need to go.
* Working With Difficulty - How working with anger, sadness, self-criticism and our inner critic helps decrease the intensity of these feelings and enables us to feel more whole.
* Not Interpreting - How not interpreting whether our creation is good/bad, pretty/ugly, positive/negative or dark/light, gives us permission to fully express and accept ourselves.
* Completion - How bringing a work of art to its fullest expression and taking this way of being with ourselves can lead to a more creative, deliberate, awakened and meaningful life. 

After our talk, join us for a short art exploration to implement what we learned and a discussion on how we can incorporate this way of being with ourselves into our daily lives.
