Fall 2016 Fall Creative Group ~ Rising Strong

Thursdays, October 6th – December 15th

9am to 11:30am

For Goodness Sake, Truckee

The first Arts In Wellness Creative Group began in October 2012. Strong friendships were forged in this intimate setting, and it quickly became apparent that there was a deep desire in this community for a forum that fosters personal reflection, creative inspiration, and significant growth. Arts In Wellness has hosted at least two Creative Groups every year since, and the ever-expanding group of Creative participants continue to gather, inspire and support one another, and create amazing experiences in their lives.

In this 10 week group we will follow the book Rising Strong by Brene Brown and explore how it relates to our human experiences, Spirit, and individual archetypes. We will begin each session with 1 hour of discussion followed by 1.5 hours of creativity: SoulCollage®, journal drawing, and painting from the Soul. Each person is responsible for purchase of the book and reading the chapters as we move through the weeks. All art supplies are provided. No experience necessary, just a willingness to explore and share.

"The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them"

- Elizabeth Gilbert

by Brooke Bishop

“A creative life is an amplified life. It’s a bigger life, a happier life, an expanded life, and a hell of a lot more interesting life. Living in this manner—continually and stubbornly bringing forth the jewels that are hidden within you—is a fine art, in and of itself.”

― Elizabeth Gilbert
