WHAT IS A MODERN DAY MUSE GROUP?
Modern Day Muse Groups are day, weekly, or monthly workshops based on the book The Nine Modern Day Muses (and a Bodyguard): 10 Guides to Creative Inspiration for Artists, Poets, Lovers and Other Mortals Wanting to Live a Dazzling Existence.
The Modern Day Muses (and the Bodyguard) are ten creative principles in the guise of Muses. More about them here. The journey using the Modern Day Muses is a step by step process that is designed to open individuals up to their creative gifts and equip them in a playful but practical way to break through creative obstacles. Creativity is filled with gifts of the spirit and has the ability to open us to a life of joy, resourcefulness and authenticity. This program facilitates our ability to activate, embrace, and follow-through with our creativity. It has been freeing the creativity of thousands since 1999.
Modern Day Muse Groups Help Participants:
