Earlier in the year I spent the day with a stylist in preparation for a photo shoot (more on that to come soon!) and discovered that I’m ‘autumn’ when it comes to colours.
I’ve always loved the rich hues of red and gold displayed so majestically in nature during autumn and at the moment we’re gathering baskets full of blackberries and apples from the garden which are truly delicious.
The autumn fruits of my creative flowering this year have taken the form of the first Conscious Writing LIVE Online Course which is now in full flow with participants from six different countries.
I’m absolutely loving the process of creating and teaching it live by video, and the feedback so far is really positive so I anticipate I’ll be offering more of these online courses in the future.
In the meantime, our exploration of Diving In to Your Creative Flow in Week 2 included me sharing the story of my own creative recovery which I wrote about in my book (see p 200).
This has inspired me to share the piece with you too in the hope that it inspires you to reflect on how much time and space you devote to honouring your creative impulse. Read more here.
From Virtual to ‘Real’
However wonderful it is to connect with people from all around the world in virtual space, there’s still nothing quite like the profound impact of meeting in person.
This month, I’m doing two events where I’ll be teaching Conscious Writing live and in person:
- SAT 15 OCT – an introductory talk and book signing at the Tree of Life Festival. Read more here.
- SAT 29 OCT – a one day workshop organized by Tree of Life Inspiring Events. Read more here.
I don’t do many live events like this so do come along if you can. It’s always a massive highlight for me to meet people who read my newsletters so it would be wonderful if you’d also come up and say ‘hi’!
Whatever your current priorities this month, I heartily encourage you to make time and space for your creativity and your writing.
Till next month…
