Book Club: The Artist's Way
"The Artist's Way is a 12 week self-led creativity workshop designed to help you reignite your inner artist, recover your creativity and let the divine energy flow through you as you create your art."
I was introduced to the The Artist's Way 12 years ago through a blog written by actress Jenna Fischer. I was about a year and half into living in Los Angeles and I felt stuck. I'd dropped out of music school, just started therapy and was beginning to freelance as a makeup artist. I wanted desperately to create and share my words and music with people, but it felt like it was locked up inside me, and I had no idea how to get it out. Enter Julia Cameron and her brilliant book. The Artist's Way is full of practical tools for unleashing our creativity and for healing the emotional wounds that keep our art hidden. It's no exaggeration to say this book it changed my life!
On January 14th, I'll be hosting the first meeting of TAW book club. My intention for this club (and 2020) is to play, create and enjoy this beautiful life I've been given. If that sounds like something you need too, I would love for you to join!
If you live in the Nashville area, and want to participate send me an email and I'll be in touch with all the details. If you're somewhere else in the world, but you want to read along & have community support along the way, you can join the Facebook group.
I'll leave you with these wise words:
“But do you know how old I will be by the time I learn to really play the piano / act / paint / write a decent play?"
Yes . . . the same age you will be if you don't.”
― Julia Cameron, The Artist's Way
