A Mindful Approach to lasting creativity.
Often, we struggle to stay engaged, motivated, and present in our creative pursuits. Despite our best intentions to show up each day to our creative interests and passions inevitably the stressors of life, our own self-doubt, and our challenging emotions sideline us. In order to grow a sustained sturdy lifelong creative practice, we must set the proper conditions.
Creative Endurance is both a practice and a mindset that welcomes the inevitable struggles of life and helps you to stay connected and engaged in a creative practice come what may.
Creative Endurance asks:
What old ideas, beliefs, and mindsets have you stuck in unhealthy patterns?
What untapped resources, skills, and insights might be ready & waiting to support you?
What are the specific habits, actions, and practices that can support you on your journey towards a life of lasting creative expression?
This course will help you to create a nourishing foundation to support your creative practice to grow and flourish employing both mindfulness and creative expression as your guide.
This course is for you if you:
Struggle to stay motivated in your creative practice.
Find that your inner critic often undermines your creative intentions.
Find that anxiety and stress often crowd out your capacity to create.
Feel that you don’t have the time to commit to creativity.
Want to formally integrate creativity into your mindfulness practice.
