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.

MOTIVATIONAL CREATIVITY

Hi There,

In the past few weeks, as I’ve been putting together workshops for my Acting classes- I’ve been looking at the terminology we use as lingo, language and description when we talk about Stanislavsky- “the Method”. I’ve noticed a direct link between the lingo, and the word “motivation” (which we use in Acting- as in “What’s my motivation? Why should my character do this?”)- and our every day creative lives- Motivational Creativity.

EXERCISE: “MOTIVATIONAL CREATIVITY”

Work through these questions to gain clarity and motivation:

1. What’s your OBJECTIVE for your Creativity today? What do you want to do TODAY- e.g.- I want to write 1000 of my novel, or go and see a movie/exhibition- whatever. 

2. What’s your SUPER OBJECTIVE for the next six months? A super objective is an overriding goal- such as- I want to finish this collection of paintings and hold an exhibition- it’s a major statement, something big, but something achievable.

3. What ACTIONS can you take to move you closer to your goals? (manageable steps- can you make one today to move you closer to getting what you want?)

Helpful Tools:

Visualization: This can help move you closer to achieving your goals. Visualize living and breathing your goal/objective/super objective as if its happening now.

Active Imagination: Add on to your visualisation by invoking the five senses- imagine seeing through your own eyes and fully embodying your goal/objective/super objective.

Enjoy! Claire x
