Feeling summer in the air brings a welcome relief of upcoming days in the sun with friends and family, soaking in the lush colors, bustling sounds and warm air. It’s a time to recharge your soul and live brightly. To try dipping your toe into that mysterious water you might otherwise avoid.
How about trying your hand at creativity? It opens your heart and your right brain, bringing balance into an often hectic life. So many times, those of us who are creatives, hear others say, “I don’t have a creative bone in my body!’
This simply isn’t true. We all live creatively, even if just a little, each day. Remember the last time you had to think up a new strategy at work, or pick out a pretty outfit for a special day? Do your makeup so that you looked that much more beautiful? Finding a way to organize that darned plastic container cupboard? Yup. They’re all creative activities and we all do them. But if we learn to hone that skill and use it to balance that crazy left brain monkey mind, the more at peace we can all feel. It brings a sense of order and quiet space we all crave. Now doesn’t that sound like a small slice of heaven?
If so, why not sign up for an art class? I offer several kinds. Bring a friend or your kids with you to learn and create together. This is one of those few things that there is no age limit to. Imagine trying to dunk a basketball when you’re 60. Now try to imagine sitting anywhere, at any age and feeling peaceful and blissed out while making something that comes from your heart. A lot easier to picture, right? (Not that there isn’t some miracle person that can dunk with ease at 60+.)
Take the leap and click on my “Classes” page and get yourself a slice of joy that lasts a lifetime and actually improves with age! Yayyy for that! You can also keep an eye out for our upcoming workshop (it’s being held Sunday, October 21st-mark your calendar!). We’re calling it “Courage, Creating and Connection.” There will be four instructors leading you through a day of yoga, meditation, massage, intuitive creative guidance and loads of art. Sounds fab, right?! I’m over the moon excited! Hope to see you there! Meanwhile, get comfortable being creatively uncomfortable in my judgement-free zone at my art studio. We’ll have a blast!

Happy Creating and I can’t wait to see you and what you find courage to do! 🙂
