Workshop Series: The Artist’s Way

The Artist’s Way workshops, as presented by To Live and Write in Alameda, are 13-week series designed to help you reconnect with your creativity. We use Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way Workbook to guide us through her process of returning to that which often gets pushed aside or left behind in our busy lives.

Cost: $250. Includes The Artist’s Way book and workbook. Wednesday nights March 7 to May 30. Facilitated by Bronwyn Emery. This price is intentionally set to pinch a little for those who find financial investment helps with motivation.

Thirteen weeks is a serious commitment, and you may find life gets in the way of one or two meetings. We will take notes and keep you in the loop to the best of our ability. You will also have a place in a private Facebook group with other members. For 13 weeks, and as far into the future as you would like to keep it alive, this Facebook group is your safe place to connect, explore, reach out, and appreciate each others journey.

Julia Cameron relies heavily on her beliefs in a Christian God, and that is reflected in much of the text. Please know that our workshop neither rejects nor embraces her beliefs. However, this is a spiritual journey–in that we reach outside as well as inside ourselves for growth, inspiration, and self-realization. And Bronwyn uses the terms “soul” and “spirit” with enthusiasm and the best intentions.

Early bird special price, expires Feb 14: $225
