Sunday January 22nd // 11:00 am – 1:30 pm // Laurel Shop, 3807 MacArthur Blvd, Oakland

Are you passionate about a project, an art vision or a new habit? Do you find you don’t quite have the motivation or stamina to get it going, or you are halfway through and lose steam? Maybe you’re almost done but can’t seem to do those last few steps to complete it.

This workshop is for anyone at any of these stages. You’ll learn real skills to support all of the stages of working through the entire creative process. We will dive in together to learn how the moon provides a natural support for our bodies in completing creative projects and establishing new patterns. And we’ll use the Moon Tools workbook to identify and provide tangible knowledge based on hormonal changes to support our process. Registration includes a copy of the 36 page Moon Tools workbook.
