In this current moment, we are witnessing life-as-we-know-it change before our very eyes. Many, if not all of us will be forced to make big adjustments. Many of us will voluntarily let go of outdated ideas and habits.
Some of us will take this crisis as an opportunity to embrace change.
How do you respond to life when it changes so dramatically--especially when the map suddenly changes so much you don't recognize the terrain? How do you tap into that deep well of inspiration –especially when you aren’t necessarily feeling it? How do you know what you should work on next when the world falls apart?
Maybe you have an idea for a new direction in life, or a new project, or want to try working with a new medium. Or maybe you’re just getting into creating art or writing and you don’t know how to organize your life around it. Maybe you finally have the time to dive deep into your creativity and don't know what to do.
In this program, you will learn powerful tools to develop your creativity and discover the next steps you need to take to align with your creative goals.
What Will You Learn?
You will learn simple techniques and practices that help you access the spark of inspiration that will unleash your creative flow. These practices will help you train the mind to stay in the present moment so you can be available for the creative downloads that are already seeking you to give them expression.
You don’t need any experience and you don't need to have any idea what you want to create. If you feel inspired to "develop your creativity" then you are in the right place.
You will learn what it means to navigate the creative process, discover the well of inspiration always available to you, and receive creative insights-- rather than struggling to make them up

What Will You Take Away?
In this course, you will focus on learning to navigate change, listen for your most inspiring ideas, and identify the obstacles that prevent you from hearing their call. You’ll get grounding guided meditations and inspiring writing exercises to help spark new ideas. You’ll take away an outline of a plan for your new project or series and a list of new ideas to explore further.
Whether you’re working on creating a new body of work, developing your artistic style, looking for a creative way to cope with changes, or laying out your goals for the next year, you’ll learn to identify your priorities as well as a concrete plan of action to bring your ideas to fruition.
