Anyone interested in accessing and enjoying their God-given creativity more fully will find kindred spirits and much encouragement in a group on Julia Cameron’s best-selling book, The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity. The book is a helpful guide for becoming free of self-limiting beliefs and behaviors that block one’s confidence, creativity, and productivity. Cameron’s approach is thought-provoking and fun. The exercises and questions in the book can easily be incorporated into retreats in ministry contexts; so familiarity with the approach has many benefits.
The group will serve students and spouses with specific artistic interests as well as those who simply want to approach life with more imagination, energy, and inspiration. Benefits from past PTS Artist way groups include help with discerning one’s call, increased “aliveness”, encouragement to experiment with new interests or resume former creative outlets, and becoming unblocked in dissertation writing. The group is a great way to get to know yourself and others, and provides a deepening experience for friends to share.
If you would like more information or want to form a group, contact the Director of Student Counseling, Wanda Sevey.
There is no fee but you will need your own new book and a commitment to consistent attendance. Group size is usually limited. The group typically meets on campus for one hour weekly at a time convenient to participants.
