This is a 3-week class.

• Are you expressing your creativity to the fullest?

• Do you greet each day with exuberance, joy, and a sense of deeply held mission?

• Do you make time to nurture yourself and your highest aspiration for living?

We all need more creativity – to solve problems, start important projects, repair relationship challenges, help others in need, and simply to be the fullest expression of ourselves we can possibly be.

Now we know, thanks to significant scientific research, that creativity is also good for us. Finding our creative flow in artistic or other soul-satisfying endeavors makes our immune system stronger, our cardiovascular system more efficient, and our cognitive function sharper and more clear.

In this 3-session course (3.5 hour session followed by two 75 minute sessions), through music, art, dance, creative writing and other forms of creative expression that you enjoy, you will be immersed in exploring your own creativity. You will learn the science supporting the link between creativity and enhanced health; how to refine talents you barely knew you had; and how to keep creativity alive in your life as your personal well-being strategy!
