A fun look at a course I created that I would love to teach in response to a Human Parts Weekend Prompt!
Inner Circle Course for Creativity
- Accelerated Program
- Classroom: Various Locations
- Length of course: Rest of my life
About the program:
The course is constructed of creative spaces for writers and readers to connect with a tribe of people to inspire them and fill their creative wells. Connections bring out the best in you as a creative. It will also allow you to connect to yourself.
This course provides a space for life giving conversation and action by creating a close knit “inner circle” of people to immerse in with ultimate input and creativity. This course is the travel guide to lead the way and fill the well.
Readings: [more may be added]

Participation in the Mastermind/Community

Participation is also required in the message board community. Part of the creative process is sharing and also being vulnerable with fellow creatives.
