Recovering Creativity, Reclaiming Your Self – with Sue Reynolds
6 weeks of writing and other explorations to bring spontaneity, joy and self-love back into your life
Creativity is at the core of human existence. Your creative force comes out in a myriad of ways, from expressing yourself through your job, or through your home and personal style, to making objects for usefulness and simply for their beauty or expressiveness.
When we are living creatively, we feel most alive, most in touch with our sense of self and self-worth. We know ourselves and appreciate our own value.
When we are shut off from our creativity, we feel more and more alienated from ourselves. In losing creativity, we lose connection with what is closest to our true identity. This alienation can come about when our expressiveness is criticized and judged harshly; it can also evolve from living too much at the whim of other demands in our lives
– our jobs, our families, our volunteer commitments.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, if you’re living too much for others’ needs and at the whim of others’ judgements, creativity is often the first thing that gets sacrificed.
This course will explore ideas and techniques pioneered by Julia Cameron, Jennifer Louden, Samantha Bennett and Lynda Barry.
In this six week course, through writing, collaging and other reflective and expressive techniques, we will reconnect with our
Selves, with our creativity and our joy and begin to reclaim our own lives.
