Dave Storer says, "We are all born with incredible creative abilities, and few things in life make us happier than fully engaging those abilities.  To let a belief that we haven't the proper "permission" - from either society, family and friends, or ourselves - stop us from developing our creative abilities and expressing our deepest, truest selves in the best creative way we know how would be a terrible loss."

Do you struggle (as so many of us do!) with giving yourself permission to do the things you really love? We all have so many responsibilities it seems, so many things that need our attention, so many things that are unfinished. It can be really difficult to let those things go even for a short time and step away into a space that is different. But different in a good way! Nourishing. Positive. Enriching.

I so believe in the truth of the quote above. Once you have mustered the courage to give yourself that needed permission and do allow yourself to step away, there is no turning back. The mystery that awaits you is powerful. It will change you in ways that you can’t yet imagine. I know this is true!

look forward to hearing from you!!

July Updates

I’ll be on the road for a bit, but wanted to share some exciting updates regarding the October retreat before I go:

Only 5 spots left for this retreat!!

I know some of you are unfamiliar with Shiva Nata (me too!) Here is Elizabeth’s own brief explanation:

 Shiva Nata is a form of movement that restructures and creates new neural connections in your brain. It's probably useful to know that it's really challenging, but it's also a practice where if you're doing it wrong, you're really doing it right. And the new neural connections can help you generate ideas and insights, which is wonderful and addictive.”

Sounds intriguing, yes?? I can’t wait to learn more!

Long-time friend and longer-time artist Carole Lee will be joining us and will be sharing some of her wisdom.

I've added a "Why I'm Doing This" page that you may find of interest.

Scroll down to read the other information about the upcoming retreat.  Be sure to become a follower if you would like to receive further updates.

I'll be in some remote areas while I'm gone, but I will respond to any emails eventually.

Thank you so much for stopping!!
