"The relationship between commitment and doubt is by no means an antagonistic one. Commitment is healthiest when it is not without doubt, but in spite of doubt." - Rollo May, existential psychologist and author
Do have half a novel stuffed in the bottom of a drawer? An easel and art supplies but no paintings to show? Or maybe it’s an idea for a new business, a new product, or a way to organize the community, only you haven't spoken it out loud or shared it with anyone else. It’s easy to doubt our ideas and our talent. And, worse, to doubt whether we’re entitled to create. (Spoiler alert: We are.)
So what’s stopping you? What's REALLY stopping you? What if your creative vision is bold — but you’re not?
All of these questions (and their answers) are the subject of a three-part workshop, Courage to Create, being offered at our studio on three Fridays mornings this coming March with Debbie Galant - podcaster, author, and co-founder of Baristanet - and Elly Meeks, a writer and creative catalyst whose most recent project helped introduce 3D-printed prosthetics to Haiti.
This dynamic duo will help participants recognize self-sabotage and destructive criticism, generate a flow of creative ideas (big and small), and set up concrete plans for goal-setting, all in a welcoming, spirited, and playful atmosphere.
Courage to Create, 3-Part Workshop
Friday March 10, 17, and 24; 9:30 a.m. til 12 noon
