Hello Gorgeous Genius!
Happy July — I’m so glad you’re here!
Due to some last minute cancellations, a few spots remain in Wiser & Wilder: Women’s Creativity Immersion, the Art and Writing Retreat in Mexico for Women 50+ this September,
This summer my priority is writing, working on a couple of new book projects, with a few travel adventures with dear friends and family throughout.
This month in Magic Book our theme is road trip, with writing prompts and art journaling projects to help you make the most of the enormous moments that make your life creative and meaningful. You can get your copy right here.
My summer writing retreat
In January, I co-lead a creativity immersion retreat with Emily Trinkaus. During the writing sessions, I was surprised how much first draft material spewed forth, all related to a memoir that’s been mostly on the back burner.
I kept thinking: Geez, what I really want to do is block off a chunk of time to really work on this. Looking at my calendar, my summer was mostly clear, so that’s what I did. Blocked off the time to write.
Since accountability and creating go together so well, I also decided to open up Art House for individuals who also want to come work on a creative project of their own. No facilitation, just each person doing their own thing at a lovely artists haven in Mexico. More on that in a sec.
Come see me in my writing cabin. I made a short video for you.
Effortless Creating Update
I’ve creating a brand new FREE video training series for you.
I share my 6 part model for EffortLESS Creating, which has helped thousands of people make their creative dreams a reality.
While I intended to launch this new training in the Spring, something remarkable happened: whole new worlds of information opened up to me. I don’t know any other way to explain it than it felt like getting a download. It’s stuff I’ve practiced and taught for decades now, but suddenly it all came together in exciting new ways.
So instead of launching according to schedule, I finally surrendered and have gone back to the drawing board. Who can argue with a cosmic download? I’ll take it! All of this new material is taking shape with what I had originally planned.
I’m really proud of how this new work is shaping up. So rather than promise a particular launch date, I’m just going to say — it’s coming soon-ish.
You can get it the moment it’s released. Totally free. The link below will tell you much more, too.
Vacations for Your Creative Soul
Do you like the idea of combining art-making with a vacation? If so, I have a couple of new opportunities to share with you.
Inspired by the 1:1 work I do with clients (spending a week with them in person designing a new business or creative project), I’ve created a new small group experience, MOMENTUM — the working vacation where you get your creative work done. The first session happens in March 2019, and is limited to just five people. Check it out here >
DIY: Art Residencies in Mexico
If you are looking for something more unstructured, but want to get away and create, (or just get away!) then your own private artist retreat could be just the thing your creative soul is yearning for. Right now, there is space available from now through the first week of September, and then again next April, 2019. All the details are here >
And last but not least…
To make up for not offering a workshop for Day of the Dead this year (I’ll be in Europe at that time) I’ve just added an art workshop and tour in honor of The Virgin of Guadalupe — my favorite holiday in Mexico.
