The Artist’s Way was written by Julia Cameron based on her own creative recovery and her experience in helping other blocked artists discover the joy of creativity. For over 20 years people have been using Julia’s proven methods to excavate the habits, ideas, and thought patterns that keep them blocked and create new ones that support self-expression, joy, and fun.

The course is based on the premise that each one of us is creative by nature. As Julia says:
We are all creative. Creativity is a natural life force that all can experience in one form or another. Just as blood is part of our physical body and is nothing we must invent, creativity is part of us and we each can tap into the greater creative energies of the universe and pull from that vast, powerful spiritual wellspring to amplify our own individual creativity.

Our course follows the spirit of Julia’s work faithfully. Our purpose is to provide support and guidance through the 6 week commitment as well as add the essential element of in-person community that Julia emphasizes in her notes. In addition, we incorporate hands on projects, gentle movement breaks, and weekly reminder emails.
