Exploring Creativity at Mid-Life & Beyond

The late poet Mary Oliver wrote:
“The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time.”

Are you feeling that the joy of just making something has escaped you? Perhaps you have a dream of a song, or a story, or some images that have been with you for many years, but are not sure what to do with them. Maybe you just feel distanced from your heart, from the call of your creativity.
Is there something you’re starting to regret as you move into the next stage of your life?
If any of this sounds familiar, join us for some practical, real-life fun and reclaiming of your whole self.  

Next series starts September 12 : Thursdays 1:00-3:30 pm. We’ll meet every 2 weeks through November 21.

Using Julia Cameron’s most recent book, It’s Never too Late: Creativity at Midlife, we’ll explore the fits and starts, doubts and misgivings that we encounter as adults who feel a yearning to reconnect — with our creativity, our hopes and dreams, our spirituality.
Cost: $120.00 (+ cost of book — please purchase prior to the first meeting).

With the book as a starting point, we’ll also explore different expressive arts, collage, painting, and mixed media, as routes back to those heart and soul connections with creativity. Writing, reflective meditation, and suggestions for active movement will also provide opportunities for discovery and connection. 

We’ll be meeting at a lovely, light-filled space in Vancouver, WA — easily accessed from either 205 or I-5. Please RSVP for details.
