Learn how to get out of your own way. Let yourself realize that your creative work is not about you by honoring the fact that your work has a life of its own. The skill to do this already is within you. You just haven’t known it fully.
All too often writers, painters and artists of all kinds become the enemy of their work. Not because they knowingly choose this relationship, but because they don’t know how to make different choices. Most of us believe our work is somehow dependent on our own personal genius showing up and expressing itself. If we have a “down day,” we assume our work will have a down day as well. This is a mistaken assumption and it’s crucial to understand why. Ushering a creative work into life is more like parenting than anything else. Understanding how to parent well makes all the difference.
This unblocking workshop is small and intimate. It includes both groups sessions and time alone. Laurie teaches you hypnosis techniques for both speaking to your work and allowing it to speak back. She has only one requirement of you as you begin: Leave your search for human perfection at the door and dive into a new understanding of what birthing creative work. Sit in respect for your work and allow it to grow into its own independent fullness.
Perks? You will experience the tenderness of Laurie’s guided meditations as you move through the day and feel the magic of hypnosis massage as she helps her students get ready for sleep each night. A unique and profound experience for participants, this workshop adapts itself to individual needs. It also establish the opportunity for further work and/or coaching with Laurie.
The only set cost of Laurie’s workshops is for lodging as she holds them on a donation basis. She asks that you bring your own food since breakfast and lunch are times for personal reflection. Dinner is held in common. Laurie encourages everyone to bring enough to share potluck,
