The Artist’s Mindful Way
March 6 – April 13 (Monday’s and Thursday’s), 10-11am EST
Do you feel overwhelmed, stressed or anxious about starting, sustaining or finishing art work? Need a daily practice for calm, and self-care while sustaining a creative practice?
Learn how to create a weekly mindfulness practice to let go fears, self-doubt, resistance and unleash calm creativity for project ideas, confidence, or completion. Set intentions, pay attention to your process and goals while valuing your self-care.
Jennifer offers a step-by-step mindful coaching process. She will lead two – one-hour sessions a week to ground yourself in a mindset and structure for enjoying being in control of your creative life or a project you want to focus on. She will introduce the basics of mindfulness: the power of guided meditation, intention, planning time, space to focus, how to release resistance, get unstuck, and get on with creative goals and growth. Classes are tailored to inspire calm, joy, and focus.
There is immense value in this course for one-on-one coaching, as well, for those who want personal attention and solutions to focus or grow their creative lives. The class structure emphasizes self-confidence and practicality. Each participant will have time to assess their gains and growth and have the opportunity to ask questions about their personal process and experiences.
By the end of the course participants will have a greater knowledge of how to create a sense of: calm, self-acceptance, greater confidence and positivity in the creative process, direction or completion of a project.
Jennifer offers a safe structured atmosphere for learning by encouragement, and welcomes all questions.
