Walking in This World [The Artist's Way-Book 2]

Walking in This World [The Artist's Way-Book 2]

by Tangie Baxter

Walking in This World is Book 2 in The Artist's Way series by Julia Cameron.

-----------------------------

Julia Cameron presents the next step in her course of discovering and recovering the creative self. Walking In This World picks up where The Artist's Way left off to present readers with a second course--Part Two in an amazing journey toward discovering our human potential. Cameron shows readers how to inhabit this world with a sense of wonder, a childlike inquisitiveness that each of us was born with. Full of valuable new strategies and techniques for breaking difficult creative ground, this is the "intermediate level" of the Artist's Way program

I'm so thrilled to be hosting a creative cluster book club for Julia Cameron's book Walking in This World

I'm excited and filled with curiousity as we dive into this book. I have found the first book The Artist's Way is an invaluable guide to living the creative life.

This is an immersive course in living a creative life which takes about 2-3 hours a week. Creativity can come in many forms (painter, parent, writer, chef, ideation, sketching, spouse, singer, et al.).

This is a group discussion style workshop. I am not your teacher or your guru, I'm simply facilitating the discussion! Julia specifically asks us not to "teach" this book to anyone, but to be part of it with the group (which she lovingly calls "creative clusters". I'll be exploring, sharing and learning again right alongside you. The more you bring to the discussion the more you will get out of this, very literally, life-changing journey. Morning pages and artist dates are at the core of the program and help us connect to creativity in it's purest form as a divine source. 

This book is spiritual in nature and uses the word God, but as Julia explains to us you can call whatever that source is to you by whatever name feels right for you to call it.

You will need the book which can be found on Amazon or Kindle! (More details about the different versions can be found in the classroom, which you will get instant access to).

From Julia:

  • Stop telling  yourself, "It's too late."
  • Stop waiting until you make enough money to do something you'd really love.
  • Stop telling yourself "It's just my ego" whenever you yearn for a more creative life
  • Stop telling yourself that dreams don't matter, that they are only dreams and that you should be more sensible.
  • Stop fearing that your family and friends would think you crazy
  • Stop telling yourself that creativity is a luxury and that you should be grateful for what you've got. 

As you Learn to recognize, nurture and protect your inner artist, you will be able to move beyond pain and creative constriction. You will learn ways to recognize and resolve fear, remove emotional scar tissue and strengthen your confidence. Damaging old ideas about creativity will be explored and discarded. Working with this book, you will experience an intensive, guided encounter with your own creativity--your private villains, champions, wishes, fears, dreams, hopes, and triumphs. The experience will make you excited, depressed, angry, afraid, joyous, hopeful, and, ultimately, more FREE.

A Sacred Vessel

A Sacred Vessel

by Tangie Baxter

 

I've been working on this class for two years off an on and I'm so grateful that I feel like I can share it with you now. 

One day (what has become years now), I was sitting in my favorite chair, reading, writing, and pondering about where I wanted my life to be and about some of the personal obstacles I felt like I needed to overcome. I suddenly had this "vision" (for lack of a better word) of the body (and mind) as a sacred, holy vessel. Sure, I've thought about my body/mind being sacred before, after all my personal beliefs tell me that I'm a spiritual being having a physical experience (not a physical being having a spiritual experience). But this was different in a way that is hard for me to put in words. I pictured a sacred vessel, like perhaps one that they would have used in the ancient cities or temples, I pictured the meticulous crafting/creating of it, the exquisite care of it, the reverence that would be given it because it was considered sacred.

The more I thought about it, the deeper I yearned to create a life where I treated my body/mind as a sacred vessel, with deep reverence and awe. As I started this journey I studied and dove into a wide range of topics such as: speaking to myself with more kindness, becoming aware of our society's obsession with diet culture lies and body shaming, spirituality inside one's own heart, writing a book of prayer, honoring my feelings, creating art from sacred writings, becoming aware of my strengths and talents and using them for good, writing a "manifesto" with "50 things I know for sure", and so much more.

This amazing experience is transforming me in many ways and has now become the curriculum for this class. We'll dive deep on an inner journey with carefully selected activities and tools. I hope that you too will become aware that you are "A Sacred Vessel" and the amazing impact that can have. 

This course includes 12 in-depth weeks of prompts with art journal page examples and some tutorials using a variety of digital & mixed-media methods but you can use one or the other as you feel comfortable.

Some of the lessons/activities include:

  • A Sacred Vessel Creation
  • Talents and Skills
  • I AM language
  • 50 Things I I know for Sure
  • My Acceptance 
  • Sacred Spaces
  • Sacred Vessel soundtrack
  • 5 Senses Morning Jumpstart
  • Book of Prayers (this can be adapted)
  • I Remember When
  • The Whole Me
  • Meditation & Art Journaling
  • Sacred Writing, Reading & Marking (you can use scriptures or any text you consider uplifting)

You also receive:

  • Two Zoom Calls-1 Mixed-Media focus, 1-Photoshop focus (these will be recorded if you can't make the live calls).
  • A special BONUS! Zoom call on how I use Pro-create. I am by no means an expert but I am happy to teach you how I have started integrating this program in my art. (this will be recorded if you can't make the live call).
  • Curated digital library to use in your artwork, including original artwork from me, stock photos and other goodies such as Photoshop brushes, digital elements, ephemera and collage sheets.
  • Lifetime Access to the classroom (your access doesn't expire)

Class Starts October 8th, 2018 and runs for 12 weeks, it will then become a "work at your pace" class. You will get a PDF with your unique student ID to download at purchase. Please follow the directions in the PDF to get access to the class.

--------------------------------------------

In this class, I am going to speak about God. You can use whatever God means to you, (Source, Life Energy, Global Consciousness, et al.) I do not ever expect anyone to adopt/adapt to my views on religion and I openly welcome and accept you with whatever beliefs you have. Also, I am not a counselor and this class is simply meant as a way to engage your creativity to sculpt your way through this journey called life. It is not meant to be medical or spiritual advice.
