Get You Creativity On!
As we grow up, our native creativity may become dulled and underused. The GOOD NEWS is that we can recover it! In this session, you will participate in exercises for getting past creative blocks, explore ways to access your creativity, and learn how to inform, inspire and motivate yourself. (As a short session, there will be demos and hands-on participation as individuals in an audience.)
