12 Weeks of Conscious Creativity
Time & Location
About the Event
12 Weeks of Conscious Creativity is a new online course for aspiring writers led by Contribute Your Verse founder Matthew Foley centered on the book The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity by Julia Cameron. In this course, participants will spend twelve weeks cultivating daily writing habits, learning how to honor & prioritize their creative self, and joining together with like-minded writers to support each other’s creative journeys.
The twelve week course will run from September 2 through November 26. During those twelve weeks, participants will commit to honoring & prioritizing their creativity through following the program outlined by Julia Cameron in The Artist’s Way: three pages of daily writing (“morning pages”), a weekly “artist date” with yourself, as well as weekly readings & exercises focused on working through various obstacles & challenges frequently encountered on the creative path.
Each Sunday, Matt will lead a one-hour discussion via Facebook live video reviewing the major themes & tasks of the upcoming week as well as the insights & lessons from the previous week. Participants will be highly encouraged to tune in to these Sunday discussions and actively participate with comments & questions, but they will also be available for viewing throughout the entire course. All the Facebook Live videos & other course content will be organized in a private Facebook group Contribute Your Verse: 12 Weeks of Conscious Creativity. Participants will also be encouraged to keep a log of their weekly writing habits in Google Sheets and are invited to share drafts of writing with Matt via Google Docs.
The cost of participation in 12 Weeks of Conscious Creativity is $500. A special early bird price of $450 will be available through Monday, August 20th. Participants will be responsible for acquiring their own copy of The Artist’s Way. For inquiries about scholarships or payment plans, please contact Matthew Foley at firstname.lastname@example.org
