A fun and hands-on business series for creatives. In Session 1 we’ll design a vision for thriving.
[This is an online event via Zoom.]
Map your own journey for thriving in 2022 in this workshop designed specifically for creative workers and entrepreneurs. We will use mindful drawing and meditation practice to enhance our business planning skills, address potential road blocks in our vision, and develop strategies for navigating those obstacles.

Ideal for individual artists who are visual learners and mindfulness practitioners. Open to all ages and all levels of art and/or business experience. Some familiarity with mindfulness practice is helpful, but not required.
