About the event
Soulful Sunday sessions to restore your soul and revitalise your creativity!
Calling all artists, creatives, writers, knitters, and makers looking to explore their creative side and forge deeper connections with like-hearted individuals. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced creative, solopreneur, or artpreneur, these regular all-year-round sessions are for you!
Co-Founders Joanne Farley-Webb (The Peaceful Paintbrush) and Helen Grace MacGregor (Grace Space Soul) invite you to join us in our brand-new community starting September 2023 in Chichester, West Sussex.
Many creatives struggle to honour their call to create.
From finding time, making space, and corraling your inner critic to reigning in endless ideas, sometimes it can feel impossible to start.
We know how frustrating this push/pull between your creative desires and the outer world can feel. Even professional creatives battle between the muse tugging at their sleeve or the lure of laundry - and we're no exception! That's why we've developed a compassionate, mindful approach to nurturing our creativity, acknowledging the natural ups and downs of the creative process.
Creativity is powerfully intertwined with, and enriched by community. Studies show we're five times more likely to honour something meaningful (but easy to procrastinate on) by working on it alongside like-minded souls! Chichester doesn't currently offer a dedicated space for conscious creatives to gather. So we decided to create one.
The Conscious Creative Club offers a unique, mindful blend of workshop and co-working in a beautiful setting that invites creative contemplation.
We envision this being a co-creative, collaborative community that will evolve organically to support and champion the creative wishes of each member.
What's On Offer:
- Quiet, magical venue tucked away in Chichester city.
- Tranquil and beautiful setting in which to cultivate your creativity.
- Introvert-friendly size group.
- Connection with like-hearted individuals.
- Meditation & intention setting.
- Calming playlist to support your creative flow.
- Space to create & explore.
- We will begin each session by gently guiding you through various techniques, permission-rich exercises, and energy-inspired practices to help you nurture your creative boundaries and/or business.
- We will meet once a month.
- A supportive, growing community where you can share your ideas and experiences.
PLEASE BOOK ONLINE TO RESERVE YOUR SPACE - NO MONEY TAKEN ON THE DAY
