When ladies gather in a circle with guided support, we can be heard, supported, and tap into our innermost creativity and power. This workshop is for lady creators of all stripes -- from artists and writers, to folks starting new side hustles or working on research projects -- who want to be inspired and hold each other accountable to turn their latent creative aspirations into a reality.
We'll be using a way of gathering called "Circle of Magic" to help us us break through some of our fear by bringing us together with a group of other creators. Circle of Magic is kinda like a book club, but in reverse: instead of reading stuff together, we make things and put them out in the world.
If Circle of Magic were a recipe, it would be…
- 1 cup accountability
- 1 cup inspiration
- 2 cups deep connection with each other
- 1 cup spiritual flow
This 2 hour workshop will include guided reflection, free writing exercises to help us tune into that little voice inside, and a chance for each person to brainstorm their creative idea with the group. Each person will leave with a hand illustrated guide for creating their own Circle of Magic after the class, as well as action steps for their creative project.
Check out a little visual story about Circle of Magic here.
