Notes for Artists Way Class today....

Creative recovery - Growing up is proactive, working with the balance of the inner and outer of your   life.
                               Growing down is reacting habitually to outside circumstances in same way.
       Staying stuck in your muck.
Resistance- Withdrawal- We ourselves are the substance we withdraw to, not from, as we pull our overextended and misplaced creative energy back into our own core. Change and uncertainty are dances of energy remember. We will find what and where to dance with the energy.

Greif- process, we mourn the self we abandoned. Times of mourning, our tears prepare the grounds for our future growth. 

Pain- We will learn to recognize, nurture, and protect your inner artist; you will be able to move beyond pain and creative constriction.

Spiritual Path-Circling at different levels, continuous life, frustration and rewards at all levels on the path. Our aim here is to find the trail, establish our footing, and begin the climb. The creative vistas that open will quickly excite you

    It is very difficult to complain about a situation morning after morning, month after month, without being moved to constructive action.
    Art may seem to spring from pain, but perhaps that is because pain serves to focus attention onto details.
    Art is born in attention. It's midwife is detail.
