Phil Cousineau - Stoking the Creative Fires (workshop)
Stroking the Creative Fires: Workshop
As Aristotle wrote twenty-five hundred years ago, "One learns to play the harp by playing." The emphasis in our workshop will be the exploration of "The Creative Wheel," a mandala-like circle that reflects the nine different stages of creativity. We will ask: Where are you on the creative journey? Where are you stuck? Where do you want to be? What are you willing to do to take the next step to complete your project, and how can you help others stoke their fire? To explore the Great Round of Creativity we will emphasize a series of actual practices and exercises, which we might call "sparks off the flint," that enable us to sustain a creative life in any chosen field. We will also engage in writing, sketching, active imagination, and observation exercises, as tools for finding our true voice and deepening our work. This workshop is designed for all those who are fascinated by the possibility of lifelong creativity, from painters and poets to gardeners, coaches, teachers, and therapists.
