Where is your authentic voice?


I am so excited about a new, six week coaching workshop held by Leslie Avon Miller. I took one of Leslie's workshops last fall and found it enriching. Leslie is the person who suggested I look into Pippi Longstocking. Pippi has since become my alter-ego so to speak, my inspiration.

The current workshop topic I find most exciting: "Seeking Your Authentic Voice." We had a free one hour workshop sample phone call on January 14th and I can tell you this workshop is going to be something wonderful.

Imagine talking about such nebulous things as finding one's voice and following one's impulses regarding our art. Where can you talk about such things in this predominantly left-brained world??

There are still some openings in this workshop. Come and join us for 6 inspiring weeks of once a week group phone calls, a private blog where we can express our thoughts to each other, and "homework" assignments focused on finding our voices. Leslie also offers each participant a private one on one coaching session.

See you there!

this sounds awesome! I am actually spending all next week in a creative workshop that I am really looking forward to. What a great time to get inspired--keeps those winter blues away!

Fantastic! You HAVE begun to find your voice.....it did begin last year as the spirit of "Pippi" reentered your life... she is such a perfect Avatar for you!

I know I am still seeking my "voice"....but not ready to commit to a workshop.....yet....perhaps in time....

I admire you so... you have such talent - in many genres - and this WILL be your year!

Thinking of you tomorrow.....

Love,

♥ Robin ♥

Sounds like a fun thing to do. Hope to hear what you learn from it. and hope you can make your cat scan tomorrow.

Suki, I do hope you find what you are seeking. for your authentic voice is there within you all the time you know; waiting to emerge .. just whisper it into being. I look forward to seeing it (hearing perhaps, as it is a voice) reverberate.

How wonderful to 'hear' the excitement in your voice now...and to know you are seeking more! Yay for you!

Leslie is a good friend and occasional painting buddy and full time art buddy-- I know you will have a wonderful workshop experience with her.

That does sound like a powerful workshop! I've just signed up for one to be taken when you feel like it. So far it's been a month and I haven't dove in yet. I think that sketchbook project had something to do with it!
I hope you come away knowing clearly what your voice is.

Good luck today Suki. I meant to stop by (in email) and tell you that yesterday.

I love reading your side blog and seeing that you're excited about like again!

I am so happy you are going to do this workshop! This sounds exactly like the kind of workshops I plan to teach at my new Creative Arts Center (when I get it open)! I'll stay tuned to hear how it goes for you. I'm interested in knowing about the things you learn. Yummy!
