2020 was filled with so many lessons. The big takeaway for me was that we all need to up our Creativity Quotient. No matter what line of work you are in. Or if you’re retired. Or independently wealthy. Or living paycheck to paycheck. Our creativity is the key to our individual health and happiness as well as that of our shared communities.
This workshop is for women looking to think more deeply about their own creativity and how to activate it in ways that are personally meaningful. If you're someone who has ever said, "I'm not creative.", this confab is perfect for you.
I need a small group of intrepid women to help me workshop the workshop. I’m envisioning a hybrid approach with one weekly group Zoom gathering paired with an individual one-on-one session later in the week.
Here is a rough outline of what I’m envisioning:
Week 1: Creativity and Safety
A brief introduction to the Polyvagal Theory and how our nervous system impacts our ability to connect with and engage our innate creativity.
Week 2: Creativity and Science and Myth
A deep(ish) dive into the science that shows our limitless capacity for creativity and how our culture teaches us the exact opposite.
Week 3: Creativity and Magic
Science doesn't have all the answers. This week is an exploration of curiosity, collaboration, improvisation, and intuition.
Week 4: Creativity and Practice
Yes, creativity is magical, but it's not magic. It is only through consistent daily practice that we are able to connect to and grow into our deeply creative selves.
WHEN & WHERE:

Though I continue to love working with my hands and making jewelry, I am feeling the pull to expand my own practice. This past year of uncertainty helped me realize that my longtime daily creative practice had prepared me to weather the storm in important ways. I'm looking to share a bit of what I know hoping it inspires others to reevaluate, reimagine and reclaim their relationship with their creative selves.
I’ll be sending a confirmation email to attendees with some resources to help jump start our first conversations on February 1.
