Moving the Spirit: A Creativity Workshop
Dear friends, just a quick post to announce I'll be leading a creativity workshop in Galveston, Texas this weekend--Galveston, that hardy community that is busy re-creating itself after the ravages of Hurricane Ike. The energy, the resolve, the will on that island is wonderful to behold and be a part of. Our workshop--I say "our" because this afternoon is something we'll all be creating together--will bring together local citizens as well as out-of-towners. My thanks to those of you in Galveston and Houston who have already signed up, and my thanks for spreading the word to your friends in south Texas.
But what is a creativity workshop, you may ask? It can be many things, but in all cases it is a quest to open our minds, re-ignite and recharge our spirits, build new creative energy and spark new ideas in the fellowship of others. Creativity so often strives and is experienced in solitude: yet it needs encouragement, thrives on recognition, warms in company, delights in concert!
More details from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Galveston, sponsor of this event:
"Moving the Spirit: A Creativity Workshop," led by author and creativity guru "Dr. Em" (award-winning novelist Mylène Dressler), invites you to take part in a lively afternoon of memory work, movement, word play, free-drawing and improvised sound and rhythm, all designed to spark new creativity and unexpected flights of imagination lying deep within our creative spirits. You need have no prior "arts" experience of any kind to attend and enjoy this fun workshop. Simply bring your hands, your heart and your love of play. This workshop is free to members of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Galveston; a $10 donation is requested of non-members. Time: Sunday, February 21, 1-3 pm. Location: Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Galveston, 502 Church St., Galveston, TX 77550 (409) 765-8330
Your are most welcome to join in, my friends, as we dream, write, trace, listen to and move mind, body, and soul.
