Muse Date: Open to Learning- Magical Guru Muse
Time & Location
About The Event
Kissing the Muse hosts monthly muse dates to explore the 12 phases of the Muse's Creative Adventure. Space is limited to twelve, fearless, scissor-wielding adventurers. Reserve your spot today.
How Kissing the Muse Works
Kissing the Muse is an active, creative mindfulness practice that helps you improve any area of focus—work, creativity, family, relationships, health, even your finances—by revealing your personal narrative and empowering you to change it. It uses collage-making, storytelling (narrative therapy), and Jungian psychology to help you discover the themes of your inner narrative and identify areas for improvement. What’s working for or against your “hero’s” purpose? What makes your muse want to sing?
The muse is a mirror of our innate, creative potential. "Kissing the muse" brings us face-to-face, metaphorically, with the blank page or empty canvas of our lives - the untamed, uncharted territory of unlimited possibilities. Whether we’re creating art, love, or our own life’s adventure, embracing our inner muse can help us navigate the process more intentionally, intuitively, playfully, courageously, and gracefully.
No previous art-making or creative writing experience is required. Workshop fee: 10 euros.
Phase 4: The Magical Guru Muse
(discovery, support, alchemy, trust, wisdom, mentoring, teacher, guru, wizard, faith, magic, empowerment)
Sometimes we need a little magic before we can muster the courage to act. It’s not always possible to do it alone, whatever that “it” might be. Surely someone out there in this huge, crazy world, has traveled this, or a similar road, before us... Someone wiser, seasoned and more experienced, who is willing to show us the way. This phase of the journey calls for a Magical Guru Muse, your own fairy godmother of sorts. This teach or mentor provides the perfect gift, or “missing-piece,” to stand-in for what we (seem) to lack. Exactly what we need seems to effortlessly appear- a random workshop, special object, or a long lost friend with knowledge or “the magic power” to move us on our path. By opening up to receive this gift, and trusting it to come, we move from hesitation and refusal to expanded possibility. Tangible or symbolic, the Magical Guru Muse manifests a powerful force that throws open the door, dispels our doubts, and nudges (or shoves!) us through it.
