This online Creative Mindfulness course is a master class workshop facilitated by photographer Lucy Goodhart (who taught our Mindfulness and Photography workshop), that explores concepts of Stillness, Intuition, and Wonder as a way of accessing our creative potential.

You’ll be encouraged to commit to a regular practice of exploration throughout the 12-week course (6 classes total) that will bring form and structure to the elusive nature of understanding the creative process. Depending on the level of commitment, the exercises offer the potential to shape and deepen their creative practice.

Previously structured around photography and mindfulness, this course is now open to creatives from all disciplines (photographers, painters, sculptors, writers, musicians, etc.) and is particularly beneficial for those wanting to improve creative thinking and nurture the seed of an idea. Disciplined structure, as well as group feedback, help bring these ideas to fruition.

Each session will have a theme (Stillness, Intuition, Wonder, Life is Sweet, Return to our Senses). An assignment will be given at the end of each session, due at the following session. Files of work-in-progress can be uploaded to Dropbox for “Show and Tell” in our online classes.
Whether you’re a writer or musician looking to spark your next creative project, a painter heading in a new direction, or a photographer interested in mindful photography exercises; this online Creative Mindfulness course is sure to enrich your creative practice.
