Creative Recovery (12 week course)
Do you yearn to be an artist, novelist, poet, playwright, filmmaker, photographer, actor, singer? Did you always know you wanted to be creative but somehow day-to-day life got in the way? Want to reconnect with your inner artist? A course in Creative Recovery could be the answer. Adapted for UK users from Julia Cameron’s ‘The Artist’s Way’, this 12-week course is aimed at those who wish to uncover or rediscover their creative self. It is a course of self-discovery that allows you to be creative. Facilitated by a local practitioner who is a qualified therapist and teacher who has received Julian’s blessing to spread the word.
