The Artist Date
This week, let’s explore our creativity. We’ve done this before of course, but it’s such a fun practice.
It’s the perfect energy to ground the evolution of our community.
The Artist Date:
This is a practice many of us already do and love because of a book called The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. It is the practice of taking yourself on a weekly date—just you alone—to a place you love or have never been before, with the intention of connecting to your creativity, and then allowing it to take you where it wants you to go.
Use this week to take yourself on a date.
Try something new. Visit a new coffee shop. Go to a movie. Try a different walking route. Go for a drive. Try a new recipe. Sit in a different favourite chair. It’s an amazing practice that can go anywhere large or small! It can be 10 min or 10 hours.
Open the door to a place in yourself you have never been before, or re-open the door to that place in yourself you don’t often get the opportunity to visit.
For your post, tell us what you did, and how this experience inspires you to live your life more fully.
What did you discover?
Bonus: Use this as an opportunity to upgrade your creative process. Many of us here rely on our creativity as the engine of our livelihood. How does allowing our creative process (the artist) to be the essential nutrient in our lives and livelihoods bring us abundance?
Have a blast!
