It’s not about the product; it’s about the process.
Engaging in these creative activities brings us into relationship with all parts of ourselves. We get to observe what happens when we are challenged or inspired, arrogant or humbled, lonely or connected. All of this while we agree to create a container that allows for these parts to emerge and if we are willing, we get to see where we’ve been stuck. We encounter our self and each other in an honest way.
It may be that you just want to put yourself in a situation that allows you to play and create because you know how valuable it is. Like when you choreograph a dance in your head and you can feel the body ache to move it, or unable to fall asleep because you’re so excited to continue to work on that painting the next day. To experience “the flow” where the inner critic is silenced and we are in the “right” brain for even just moments is pure joy.
These workshops are not all about technique they are about discovery of the self. They are about gaining resources to work toward a goal. You show up exactly as you are and maybe along the way, let go of some fears to see who you can really be.
It is the intention to create a space that feels safe. Just know that there is choice along the way, always. You share as much as you like and participate however it feels right.
