*NEW VEIN OF GOLD GROUP STARTING JANUARY 2018*

 

Have you read Julia Cameron’s book The Artist’s Way? Did you do morning pages and artist’s dates and experience a burst in creativity? Did you gradually stop doing them and fall back into old stuck patterns?

Do you want to go deeper into this transformational work and begin to create the life and art you want?

Join me and other Artist Way alumni as we explore Julia Cameron’s follow-up book The Vein of Gold.

[If you have not worked through The Artist’s Way see here https://www.susantelford.com/2017/10/30/new-artists-way-…ing-january-2018/ to sign up for the new Artist’s Way group, also starting in January 2018]

The Vein of Gold course is completely free and will last for 30 weeks. We will work in blocks of 4-5 weeks with regular catch-up weeks to review and consolidate the material.  You will gain access to a private Facebook group for support and discussion.

NEW ARTIST’S WAY GROUP BEGINNING JANUARY 2018

Another free Artist’s Way group is beginning in January 2018.

The Artist’s Way, a book written by Julia Cameron is a course in “discovering and recovering your creative self”. I have already run a very successful group and together we worked through the book as a way to unblock the creativity inside all of us.  See my about page for testimonials here https://www.susantelford.com/

Julia introduces tools such as morning pages and artist’s dates as a way to free up the creative energy that is often locked away under layers of fear, self-doubt and insecurity.

The course is aimed at everyone who wants to be more creative, whether as writers, painters, actors, musicians or if you just want to live a more creative life. It is an excellent tool for examining and releasing everything that is blocking us from expressing ourselves fully in the world.

The course will run for 15 weeks to allow time for catch-up weeks after every 4 weeks. Previous group members have found this very useful to review and consolidate the material and deepen their experience.

If you are interested , please click here https://m.facebook.com/groups/140717476493970 to be added to our Facebook group for the course. Please note there are only 35 places to ensure that group members can get to know each other (and me!)

My teacher, the tree

 

 

Autumn
No resistance to the shedding
The beauty in letting go
Winter
No resistance to the storms
The beauty of being blown
Spring
No resistance to the blooming
The beauty of new growth
Summer
No resistance to the fullness
The beauty of it all.

Branches gone, stripped bare
Essence remains, still a tree
Nothing real is lost
