Do you feel the pull to be able to better express yourself in your life as a coach, teacher, healer, employee, mother, daughter, sister, partner, caregiver, writer, artist, or human being? Do you ever wish you had a space where you could just play and share what was on your mind and in your heart? Do you find yourself yearning to express yourself in deeper, freer, more authentic, more profound ways? Maybe you are drawn to create things, but feel your creative endeavors aren’t reaching their full potential, because you are afraid that your work isn’t “good enough” or even that you yourself aren’t good enough and have nothing original to say?
I get it. I’ve been there. I have spent many years (decades even!) as what Julia Cameron calls a Shadow Artist always hovering near the periphery of claiming myself as a creative. It has taken me almost a lifetime to stand up and claim what I do as art. The work I do in my teaching and mentoring, the rituals, meditations, and prompts I create for my students, the writing I do in my personal life to advocate for individuals with dementia and their caregivers, the music I make, the stories I tell, the stories and poetry I create. These are my art and I AM a creative. I was just afraid to call myself one.
If you are like I was, I have some great news for you, my friend. Cultivating a consistent creative practice will not only stretch your mind, free your voice, and shift your perspective in SO MANY PARTS OF YOUR LIFE, but it is also a beautiful and gentle healer that allows us to get in touch with your feelings and celebrate and make sense of the world around us.
Awakening Awen is a program for women like you who want to cultivate a creative practice that builds their confidence, nurtures their voice, and feeds their spirit. In this program, we will tap into the Awen, the flowing spirit of inspiration, as we work with different goddesses, stories, and inspirational prompts and guides. It is for women who want to explore their creativity as spiritual practice that enhances their connection to the Goddess and grows their souls too!
Now, you might be thinking “I’m just not one of those creative people.”
But the truth is that EVERYONE is creative. Kids are natural creators until life drums the joy and play out of creativity for so many of us and I bet you were too.
But how do we get back to that place, especially when we’ve told ourselves (or even worse been told by others!) that we are not creative?
One way is by giving yourself room to play. Do you remember when you were young and you’d draw or paint or make up stories simply for the joy of doing so? You didn’t worry about whether they were good or if you picked the right colors. You just followed your natural intuition and had FUN. You know why? Because you were in flow and your heart was naturally connected to the creative energy of the universe that is not just all around but within us.
You didn’t question whether you were good enough, because no one had taught you not to. You just jumped in the flow of sacred play and did your thing. If you’d like to recapture that spirit in a safe space to grow and share your work, I invite you to join me for:
What is Awen?
Awen is a Welsh word that means flowing spirit. In the Druidry, it represents the inspiration of the poets and bards. It is the Muse, that sacred place where we go when we are in creative flow and feel like our work is not of us, but coming through us. It is a space closely connected to Sacred Feminine Energy and Creation with a capital C. When we tap into our creativity, we are communing with not just our Soul, but the Divine itself.
