"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"

  • Do you want to rediscover your passion or 'thing'?
  • Do you want to unblock some of the barriers you have around doing it?
  • Have you found 'your thing' but feel stuck?

Take risks, lighten up and rediscover your creativity within a supportive environment. Based on The Artists Way book by Julia Cameron this course explores and seeks to overcome what blocks the full expression of our creativity and playfulness.

It's an incredibly effective and liberating process, a personal and collective adventure in transformation and the rediscovery of those things in our lives that bring us the most joy and meaning.

This programme includes both lightness and depth. We need to not take ourselves so seriously that we get in the way of our spontaneity and playfulness and risk taking... And we need to take the parts of ourselves seriously that long for depth, meaningful connections and meaningful work. 

You will need a copy of the book to attend the course, and to get the most out of your attendance you should set aside extra time during the week for assignments.

COVID: We plan to run this as an in-person course but will obviously be guided by Government advice regarding the COVID situation nearer the time.  The Buddhist Centre is a COVID compliant venue and if the course needs to be cancelled due to restrictions you will be offered a refund or the opportunity to continue online.

The Artist’s Way 

The Artist’s Way movement began more than two decades ago as author Julia Cameron shared her ideas with a few friends in her living room. It continues to be a seminal text on creativity and an international best seller on how to unlock the natural creativity inherent in all of us. 

The basic assumption of The Artist’s Way is that you do not have to learn how to be more creative; instead you need to free your natural creativity. Our creativity can be blocked, and also unlocked.   

What does the course cover?

In ten weekly sessions - through discussion, tasks and creative exercises – we’ll be guided by The Artist's Way. There'll be opportunities to explore what might be blocking you creatively, and encouragement to find what supports you. Sessions will be a mixture of talking and doing. There is no need to consider yourself an artist.  Emphasis in class will be on play and process rather than finished result.

Who is the course for?

This course is for everyone: Whether you are brand-new to The Artist’s Way or have a bookshelf filled with years of Morning Pages journals, whether you are working on a large artistic project or simply wishing to experience more creativity in your life, this course can support you.
