3 Invitations to Boost Your Creativity in 2010

"God is really another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style. He just goes on trying other things." - Pablo Picasso

     As an artist, my credo involves traveling to foreign lands to gather inspiration. I just returned from 5 weeks in Australia which offered a unique teaching because it is known as the land of dreamtime. Dreaming is an essential part of creativity. I find that my creative output waxes and wanes like the moon and solstice is a wonderful time to gestate and vision new ideas.
     Learning is also important to the creative process. During my travels, I studied drumming, stand-up comedy and sound healing. What are your areas of creative studies? What have you been dreaming about? Are you paying attention to your intuition and recording your inspiration?
    I challenge you to start manifesting those creative hits. Now is the time to write that book, learn to act, dance, sing, paint or play the guitar.
     I know how terrifying it can feel. Your ego may even come up with a dozen convincing excuses why your not ready, but resistance and contraction are part of the creative birthing process. At core, we are all afraid to show our unique expression. That's why I suggest you surround yourself with a safe and experienced community of creative people.
     I am an experienced midwife and would love to help you give birth to your full expression. I hereby invite you to join me on a 90 day creative journey towards your self realization. Here are three separate opportunities, and I'm offering the first meeting fre'e with no obligation to enroll:
1) How to write a book in 90 days
2) Tantra Theater
3) Artists way
     Or perhaps you just want to be a part of a creative troupe and support others from behind the scenes? One of the many benefits of all of these classes is belonging to a sexy and fun spiritual community. I've updated my event calendar, so come out and play with us!
