You will learn what makes you unique and what inspires you. That sharing your gifts with the world and living your purpose are ingredients for thriving in life. That you can make life fulfilling through all the years to come in every phase and stage. You will use creativity, meditation, journaling, and purpose-clarifying work to amplify life. You will learn tools and techniques to live a more joyful, resilient life so you can boost your confidence and make a bigger impact.
A creative life is an amplified life, Creativity is within everyone. It is a part of being human. Some people feel reluctant to experiment creatively, but when you open up to self-expression life becomes exciting. You will learn that most people peak in their creative genius at 5 years old. You can easily reclaim that creative potential within you — you simply have to be open enough to try. You will even take your class notes in an art journal as one simple way to awaken the creativity within you.
Learning to thrive is an inner journey. When the mind is distracted or under pressure, expansive thinking can be restricted. Mindfulness meditators learn to deeply notice this moment. Not the past or the future. Now. This moment. When you learn to pay mindful attention in meditation, that skill gives you the ability for creativity, self-expression, inner work and transformation.
