"Creativity is God's gift to us. Using our creativity is our gift back to God," Julia Cameron has observed. Far too often, people think that this path is restricted to artists. But every person has the gift to imagine and join with the Divine in the ongoing creation of the universe. This 40-day e-course is for those who want to discover and express their creativity through spiritual practices.
Every culture and tradition links creativity and spirituality. Music, dancing, singing, poetry, and painting are common ways to express our soul and our delight in being. Creativity shows up in our play and our improvisations. It spins out into the ways we relate to others, handle difficulties, and find innovative solutions to the world's problems. It is evident in the crafts we make and the hobbies we pursue. "Every person," according to potter M. C. Richards, "is a special kind of artist and every activity is a special art."
Join us to discover the artist in you. Every morning you will receive an email with a short quotation and a related practice suggestion. We will savor the spiritual insights of Thomas Moore, Matthew Fox, Frederick Franck, Julia Cameron, Sister Wendy Beckett, M. C. Richards, Jan Phillips, Corita Kent, Natalie Goldberg, Alan Jones, Madeleine L'Engle, Shaun McNiff, Gabrielle Roth, Judith Orloff, and many others. It's time to let creativity seep into every nook and cranny of your life!
