We’re kicking off this brand new year with the (official) launch of the Girl Gift Gather Book Club! On January 13th, we’ll begin reading The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. We know a lot of people have made resolutions this year: to go to the gym, to get organized, to make more money etc. But, what if we started the year off by resolving to open ourselves up to more joy, creativity, passion and purpose? Julia writes“We’ve all heard that the unexamined life is not worth living, but consider too that the un-lived life is not worth examining.” This book is a 12-week program that focuses on connecting you to your creativity. Each week, there will be homework assignments and required reading.
We’re constantly inspired by the power that comes from joining together under a shared purpose. That’s why we’re opening this book club up to our whole community (and why we’re so psyched about getting it started!). We’re making a commitment to support one another as we each kindle the creative spark that burns within all of us. It’s the privilege of being a human being. This is a casual affair — we’ll sit on cushions on the floor of our Bushwick studio, read and discuss the book, drink wine and tea, and snack on different treats. If there’s a song, a book, a poem, a story, a painting, a sculpture, an idea or simply a curiosity calling you to sign up…do it! This is the year, now is the time.
“But do you know how old I will be by the time I learn to really play the piano/act/paint/write a decent play?” Yes … the same age you will be if you don’t. So let’s start.” Julia Cameron
We will be meeting 1/13/15 | 2/3/15 | 2/24/15 | 3/10/15 3/31/15 at our studio from 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm. There will be a reminder email with notes on topics of discussion before each meeting. Tickets are $25 (this is a one time fee that covers all five meetings). We hope to see you there!
Have a beautiful week!!
