Use All of You

Use Skills You Already Have in New Ways

Tell Your Story

Uncover Your Authentic Voice


This week is about uncovering and empowering your authentic voice. You're unique. This time in the world is unique. These things have never happened before. So, to make unique work, all you have to do is tell your story. No one knows what that story is until you discover it. There are many kinds of stories and lots of ways to tell them. You'll find an optimum balance for you. You can do this guided by a master in a supportive community of like-minded but diverse creative people. It will be a complete immersion for everyone. The most important thing to bring is an open mind.

You also discover how much you have to give to others - and how good that feels.
