Creativity brings joy and meaning to our lives and yet it remains mysterious.  Where does creativity lie?  How can we enter “the zone” when we want to?  Why do we become blocked?  What gets us unstuck?

We will explore seven “keys” to creativity to help us receive more joy from this most unique of human qualities.  Celebrate playfulness.  Manage performance expectations.  Share experiences with others.  Develop a personal routine.  Learn to clear a space for curiosity.

Participants should bring a notebook and pen.
