Creativity means ‘to grow’. Our creativity and personal development are intertwined and when a person is not expressing their creativity, they can easily become low in themselves, frustrated, anxious and depressed. When we are creative we live as if the world and all that is in it is vividly alive, we see life differently, more possibilities and even obstacles become exciting challenges all because of the vibrancy which being in the creative flow offers.
The Artists’ Way is a 12 week programme that will reawaken your creativity, reenergise your life and teach you how to take as much care of yourself as you do for others.
Each 2 hour session is highly structured and is based on the best selling book by Julia Cameron. It will show you how to help take a step back from your busy life to slow down, achieve more and set goals for your own self care and creativity.
This is an inner journey of self discovery and it is different for each person. So my job as a facilitator is to support you each week as we navigate through the activities and discussions each week. Meditation and stillness is a vital part of the course and indeed meeting with like minded people is a wonderful resource on this exciting journey home to your true self.

Join us for this 8 week class delving into how we operate in the world as functioning (or dysfunctional) adults! During this course, we will be setting goals and taking a hard look at what it is we need to look at within ourselves and our patterns, to function as differentiated and spiritually mature adults. I will be introducing the concept of archetypes, which are patterns of behaviour within all of us and using this system to rewire how we can move from being a perfectionist, co-dependent, or people-pleaser to being content, assertive and fully accepting of ourselves unconditionally. Shedding the patterns which cause you to doubt yourself, sabotage your personal and professional growth and introduce patterns and archetypes who bring out the best of us.
We will be looking at meditation and relaxation as a bridge to a new way of being in the world. A beautiful aspect to this class is the learning of soul prayers and living in a more peaceful, trusting and faithful way. Who is running the show in our inner world? Is it the 16 year old? Is it the victim? Is it the princess, waiting for her knight in shining armour to save her? Fabulous questions like these will be discussed!
Each week we will be exploring ways that empower us as assertive and grounded people in the world. You will learn techniques that help develop an inner world of strength and personal power as well as ways of creative expression. It is vital that we learn how to build our inner selves to be strong and healthy so that when times become challenging we have a resource that will ease the way and bring about a greater level of peace and emotional stability. We will be experimenting with techniques which add to our sense of being grounded and assertive. This is vitally important, especially when we have children who look to us as role models for stability, safety and emotional maturity.
Spend week 1 in a one-to-one session with Margot and the remaining 7 weeks with your soul tribe of people (limited to 4) who want to live a more meaningful life which involves invoking the truth-teller Archetype who will guide you safely, securely and with no judgement to a place of freedom and awareness to a place where you can make magic in your life.
Shamanic Journeying is a way for us to feel personally empowered in our lives. It is a way to get us out of our heads as well as to expand our awareness. When we learn that we have the ability to problem-solve for ourselves, it raises our self-esteem in a grounded way. Think of a journey as a kind of active meditation, a means of travelling deep within to garner the counselling, insights and perspectives of a world without judgement or negativity. Journeys are accompanied by a drum – said to represent the heartbeat of mother earth – which shifts the brain waves from alpha to theta and produces a mild trance state. Shamanism, one of the oldest traditions of the world and common to all Native people, is a connection that helps us remember who we really are. It is a form of spirituality that is based upon living in balance with everything around us. It has proven to be successful in enabling people to achieve balance in all aspects of their lives.
Going to meet our helping spirits makes us feel valued and connected to the spirit that lives in all things. We feel loved by the power of the universe, and we never feel alone again. In working with the helping spirits, we learn the true definition of power. True power is being able to use our energy to create transformation for ourselves, others and the planet. We journey our way on this course each week, out of our story and out of our chains; chains of our own making. This limits what we think is possible. It is possible to get stuck in a story and that is a very serious problem. The trap of being human is when we hold our story to be the same thing as our life. They are not the same thing.
It is possible to start a new story.
Shamanic journeying is a joyful path to regaining the knowledge of how to bring our lives back into a place of harmony and balance. It helps us to wake up to our full creative potential. As we do this, our lives change in a way that brings good health and well-being to ourselves and others. Some people use the journey to work through emotional issues. They may confront a deceased or living relative to bring peace to unresolved events. We can use the journey to bring about changes, or seek answers to questions that are stopping us from living our lives in a joyful and fulfilling way. The shamanic journey provides a tool for spiritual growth because the individual can seek out evolved spiritual teachers. The messages often have an unexpected depth of meaning, and journeyers often report that their journeys ‘add up’ to a deeper spiritual teaching because one journey has built on another. We spend 2 classes out in nature and the remaining in our custom built studio in the centre of Blessington, Co. Wicklow. During each class we will be journal our experiences and over the 6 week period when we go back over the contents of our journal we may see that we were walking a path of deep learning. Journey messages will often come in the form of symbols, which have a depth that only becomes clear over time.
