This 13-week program is based on the book, The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. Learn how to discover or recover your own creative self by following a spiritual path to higher creativity that consists of readings and exercises from the book, writing daily “morning pages,” and participating in weekly “artist dates.” Participants must be willing to commit to 4-5 hours weekly to attend meetings and accomplish the tasks.

Participants must purchase the book, The Artist’s Way, before the first meeting. Books are available at the Abbey Bookstore.
