About This Workshop

Putting our ideas out in the world is one of the most powerful things we can do for ourselves and the planet, and sometimes, we just need a little nudge to know how to get started. This workshop is for makers of all stripes – from side hustlers to product folks to artists – who want to take their creativity to the next level.

The workshop will include free writing exercises, guided group reflection, and a creativity workbook. You'll leave with practices for how to make space to have more ah-ha moments, as well as strategies for how to transform your ideas into reality. By the end of the workshop, you'll have identified concrete next steps and small-yet-mighty "leaps" you can take to supercharge your ideas.

Wendell Berry said it best: "There are, it seems, two muses: the Muse of Inspiration, who gives us inarticulate visions and desires, and the Muse of Realization, who returns again and again to say 'It is yet more difficult than you thought.'" In this workshop, we'll spend time with both Muses to know how to gather more inspiration and how to make our visions real.
