The Courage to Create

Dec 12 - 14 Begins in 2 weeks
with Phil Cousineau & Gregg Chadwick

What role does creativity play in our lives? Is it a luxury reserved only for so-called geniuses — or is it an inner imperative that helps us forge the well-lived life? This workshop reconsiders the notion of creativity as a “battle with the gods” in light of its Latin origins in creare, the natural urge “to grow or make order of chaos."
