Fearless Creating: Working with the Stages and Anxieties of the Creative Process
In this dynamic workshop, we will navigate Eric Maisel’s Six Stages of the Creative Process, the natural anxieties that accompany those stages, and ways to manage the things that keep us from being creative. How do we feed our creative desire? Create in the midst of our busy lives and establish an ongoing creative practice? Summon up our courage to create, despite our doubts and judgments? Through hands-on activities, we will explore ways to encourage, enrich, and empower creativity in our lives.
