CANCELLED February 13, 2020 - Thursday 7-9pm - Gifts of Imperfection Guidepost 6: Cultivating Creativity and Letting Go of Comparison - with Jessica Bean, ND, MS, CDWF

Learn to apply Brené Brown’s transformative work in your life: recognize that all human beings carry the spark of creativity, and release the harmful practice of judging your creations in comparison to those of others.

So many of us have been harmed by the lie that we are not creative people or by the belief that our creations don’t measure up. Come light the spark of your own creativity, recognize what you uniquely bring to the world, and release harmful patterns of comparison that douse your internal flame.

Brené Brown says that “we move what we’re learning from our heads to our hearts through our hands.” Integrate this guidepost through discussion, reflection and creative activities alongside fellow seekers of growth and change. Bring a sketchbook or large unlined journal; all other supplies will be provided. No art or creative experience is required.

 Each guidepost is independent, and you are welcome to attend any or all of the sessions.
