About The Event

Kissing the Muse:Another Messy, Magical,Creative Adventure

(for Chasing Your Passions, Wandering Wildly & Braving an Unbeaten Path)

Believe it or not, you are an artist. Every action you take creates and colors your life, like a paintbrush transforming a canvas into a work of art. If you choose the unbeaten, creative path, there are no paint-by-numbers to follow.  To live freely and fully by your own heart’s beat, you need a courageous, intuitive, collaborator to help you navigate all the wild twists and turns of the journey. Someone wise and inspiring to guide you in making a masterpiece of your life.

In other words, you need a muse.

The muse is a mirror of your inner artist. She reflects your innate creativity, wisdom and power—to manifest a masterpiece or a mess. It doesn’t matter whether you dabble with watercolor, or cake frosting, write poetry or prose, or can't draw a stick figure to save your sister—kissing your muse will illuminate your authentic path to happiness, and help you navigate along the way.

Think of this course, then, as both a compass and map for your own life’s messy, magical, creative adventure.* Over the next six weeks, you will kiss half a dozen distinct muses, through self-reflective “kissing practices'' in collage, mixed-media, and expressive writing. Approach each encounter as playfully or seriously as you would any romantic entanglement—simply flirt to find out what makes your want to muse sing, make a long term commitment to a particular dream or desire, or simply “drop-in” to choose, chart, or change your life’s course. By embracing each muse as your intuitive truth, you can reframe your life’s plot twists and rewrite its storyline to make more empowering, value-adding, hope-filled choices that change you, and the world, for the better.

Week by Week

Each week you will receive a unique “kissing practice” and writing prompt correlating to one phase of your creative adventure, and a particular muse.  You will also receive additional kissing practices (writing prompts and expressive art actions) to fan your creative flame. You can use these to deepen your personal creative practice or to develop a specific project. The first kissing practice will take place over ZOOM, so we can meet each other and I can guide you.

*The Messy, Magical Creative Adventure is a repeating cycle that moves through 12 different muse phases. This course, “ANOTHER Messy, Magical Creative Adventure” covers phases 6-12. It is not necessary to go through each phase in order or to complete the entire cycle to benefit from kissing your muse. Like the moon, we are always whole, even when partially shadowed. No matter what phase we’re experiencing, we can look up (by looking inward) and rediscover our place in the universe.
