Join us for a 12-week deep dive into creative living, exploring The Artist’s Way! If you’re feeling stuck, blocked, or simply curious and ready to tap into your creative potential, this is the course for you. This is not restricted to writers or artists; it’s for anyone wanting to feel inspiration and reconnect to their true creative nature. (Spoiler alert: We’re ALL inherently creative beings.)


What is The Artist’s Way?

The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron is a both a book and 12-week program to restore and sustain a creative life. It is a truly amazing guide and resource and is best utilized in a group to encourage accountability and collective wisdom. Each time we gather, we will reflect on and share insights from that week’s chapter and use creative writing exercises to expand our vision of what is possible. Whether you are a painter, writer, dancer, photographer, musician, actor, designer, entrepreneur or just generally looking for more creative empowerment, this will be a transformative experience.


What does it involve? 
  • daily “morning pages” (stream-of-conscious journaling practice)
  • weekly “artist dates” (scheduled time for solo self-care + inner-child exploration)
  • willingness to dive deep into whatever’s standing in the way of your creative expression

What is the time commitment?
  • Meetings: We will meet for an hour and a half each week on Sundays at 10am PT, starting on August 8, 2021 *the new moon!* (Please note: these are live, not pre-recorded, sessions).
  • Reading: Each week, you will read one chapter and complete some of the tasks at the end (around 30 minutes). 
  • Morning Pages: Each day, you spend about 20 minutes of stream-of-conscious writing / journaling.
  • Artist Dates: Once a week you will take yourself on an artist date (this could be anything from 20 minutes to all day long depending on your preference)!

There is no shame here, if you aren’t able to get all of the “work” done. As Cameron says, 

“Much of the work is really play, and the course takes little more than an hour a day.”
—Julia Cameron

Katie Davidson

Katie started her career with a leap of faith across the country to New York City, to pursue a career in journalism. While finding success at a glamorous fashion and beauty website, she found the Sex and the City-inspired lifestyle she once believed would make her happy didn’t quite fit. Instead, her soul lit up during yoga and meditation classes, sending her down an entirely different path of life-long learning that would bring her around the world to obtain her advanced teaching certification and to graduate school to obtain a Masters of Arts degree in Yoga Studies from Loyola Marymount University. She considers herself a “website midwife,” helping others in various industries bring their dream websites to life. She also continues to freelance; her writing has been published on ELLE.com, InStyle.com, and Teachable, while her wellness tips have appeared in POPSUGAR Fitness. She considers mindfulness an essential part of her work (and play!), and is passionate about supporting individuals in stepping into their fullest and highest expression.
