UNLEASHING YOUR CREATIVITY- A 5 Week Course to Step into Your Power

“Unused creativity is not benign. It metastasizes. It turns into grief, rage, judgement, sorrow, shame.”- Dr. Brene Brown

Happy Monday!

I am really excited to announce that in October, I will be running my five week course “Unleashing Your Creativity”, for the second time this year. One of the reasons I love running/designing and facilitating this course is because of the miracles, shifts and transformations which occur within the group.

What kinds of people do the course? Anyone and everyone. You maybe a new mother who has lost her sense of direction, or working in an unsatisfying career. You may be a recent school leaver, or a retiree who wants to gain access to your unique strength and create a plan of forward movement.

Wherever you are now is where you begin. Each week we will meet on a Monday evening from 5.30pm- 8.30pm (Newcastle CBD, NSW) and do creative exercises including inventories, automatic writing, vision boards, mind mapping and creative visualisation (and much more)- exercises and activities that are designed to motivate and inspire you and to clear blockages. It’s time to shine, as we move into the warmer months, you will leave each class feeling clearer, happier and confident.

WHY DO THE COURSE?

1. To remember who you are

2. To gain clarity and perspective

3. To access your own creativity 

4. To be accountable in a supportive and safe group dynamic

5. To allow yourself to do what you love doing

Course numbers are limited, so contact me ASAP with expressions of interest. The cost of the course (materials and handouts included) is $250- but if payment is received by August 31st- the early bird price is $200.

HOW NOT TO DIE WITH YOUR MUSIC STILL IN YOU

“Most me lead lives of quiet desperation, and go to the grave with the song still in them.”- Thoreau

Hi Peeps,

If 2015 is to be your best year so far, with creativity being at the forefront of your desire, what song do you want to sing? What is inside your heart, waiting to be released? Here’s a short/fun exercise to get to the heart of the matter:

Finish these sentences…

1. It sounds ridiculous but I’d love to be a ….

2. I’d love to try…

3. When I talk about______________________ my eyes light up

4. The subjects that interest me the most are ……

5. If I weren’t so scared I would….

6. I’m really happy when I ….

7. When I think back to being a child I loved to play….

8. The voice I hear in my head that says “You can’t do that” belongs to…

9. I’m angry at ______________________________ because they didn’t support me in my enthusiasm for ______________.

10. If I could do one thing in my life this week, to nourish “my song” (your song could be singing, dancing, writing, acting, drawing, cooking…) it would be…..

When you look back at your list, especially the first question- ask yourself “Why is this ridiculous?” Nothing is ridiculous. Last week, on Monday, a student in my workshop said she wanted to be a comedian, but, “that’s not realistic,”- by Thursday she was on stage doing her first open mic gig. NOTHING that is truly in your heart and coming from a place of awe and inspiration is ridiculous. Challenge yourself to do something this week, to push your song out into the world. Love Claire xx
