Participants for The Artist’s Way

Submitted By: – Click to email about this post
The Artist’s Way Course on Zoom, beginning Wednesday, April 13, 2022
Julia Cameron’s landmark book, “The Artist’s Way,” was first published in 1992. Our workshop will use her 2002 “10th Anniversary Edition” as our text.
This course is open to women only. Full enrollment will include 16 women. 13 women are already enrolled. We have spaces open for 3 additional women. Enrollment closes Monday, April 4, 2022 at 5 pm PT.
I have offered “The Artist’s Way” many times but not since 2007. I was invited to offer the course at Rising Hearts in Nehalem just as Covid hit our communities. Several women were interested at that time. Perhaps you were one of them. If you would like one of these spaces, please let me know.
I feel it’s time now to offer “The Artist’s Way” on Zoom. Zoom’s breakout rooms will allow participants to meet in small groups to process some of the exercises together. Each participant will have a partner to check in with privately on a weekly basis, to talk about their progress with “Artist’s Dates” and “Morning Pages.”
All who would like to will have the opportunity to participate in a 20-minute silent meditation session on Zoom in the 30 minutes prior to each session of The Artist’s Way — a good way to begin keeping a daily meditation practice, if you wish.
I will incorporate lots of materials that are not included in Cameron’s book, materials that reflect scientific developments that post-date publication of The Artist’s Way. I’ll do my best to update the course to be as relevant as possible to today’s world. Every participant will have opportunities to share resources they have found helpful using The Chat function on Zoom at the beginning and end of each session.
I find that this course helps me be accountable to myself as a spiritual being having a human experience — and as an artist. It asks each of us to up our game, do our best, transcend obstacles. Everything it asks of us is best done in a group — not alone. And, during Covid, when our needs have become even more apparent, the need for opportunities to congregate in solidarity is paramount.
I hope you will consider joining me! — Dana Anderson
