Awaken Your Creative Genius - Foundations

Welcome to Awaken Your Creative Genius!

In this six week program, you'll be part of a supportive community of artists and creatives, diving into amazing practices and processes to build a creative practice that is deeply connected to your heart and soul, and inspired by stories and examples of other's creative genius.

If you're not currently making art, this program will change that! 

And it will likely change you too. 

This isn't about learning techniques, but about developing a new relationship with your creativity and yourself. 

You'll begin by learning a new paradigm for creativity, then explore a range of tools that will support your creative practice. 

You'll engage in a creative commitment - a daily practice that you devise - throughout the program, and develop a powerful foundation for the ACTIVATE program where you will formulate a creative project for launch!

I'm so excited that you're joining us in this amazing program!

Hi, I'm Michelle Morgan...

I'm a registered arts therapist, multi-modal artist, spiritual care practitioner and community singing facilitator.

In my early twenties, I went through a horrible breakup, dropped out of university and started an apprenticeship in admin at an engineering and surveying company. 

I was deeply unhappy. 

I was fortunate to move into a share house with two older women, one of whom introduced me to The Artist's Way - a journey in creative recovery, written by Julia Cameron. The core practice of The Artist's Way is to write three pages, stream of consciousness, everyday. 

The writing was incredibly cathartic. I could dump all the sludge from my brain onto the page. I could give expression to my thoughts and feelings. And I began to notice that messages were coming through. I wrote at least six times... 'I want to do a massage course', before I realised the truth of the statement, and then took action to make that happen.

And so my life set upon a new course. I studied healing modalities and reawakened my creative self. 

Over the years, I played with writing, visual art (pencil, pastel, paint), dance, music. I was always exploring a new creative expression. The journaling became a life tool and an incredible support, particularly in times of depression and anxiety. My creativity was my link to the Mystery. It helped me to make sense of suffering, to find clarity in times of confusion, to express challenging emotions, particularly through my ongoing Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, and to self soothe. Creativity is my deepest anchor.

In May of 2018, during a time in my life that felt full of uncertainty and darkness, I started a daily mandala practice, and found myself in another creative initiation. I made a new mandala every day for A WHOLE YEAR!

The work I share with you now is birthed from that initiation. I am so grateful to be able to share it with you!

Six weeks of creative play is just the beginning...
I'm so excited to share this with you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any costs involved?

Yes. This program is a powerful opportunity to enrich your life through creative practice, guided by a facilitator with 20-plus years experience in creative life, and a registered arts therapist. This is not a basic 'art class', but will give you the tools you need to build a lifetime practice. The program is $660, which includes weekly videos, guided audio, weekly in-person check ins, and bonus material.

What is the time commitment?

The course content varies from week to week. Some weeks have a couple of videos to view and some have just one. I'd set aside up to 2 hours each week to engage with the content and reflection practices. It's really up to you how long you spend on your creative practice. Some days I spend hours on one work. Other days, particularly if I'm very tired, I set an alarm and make sure I complete something in ten minutes. I encourage self care in this practice... Showing up to the page to create art every day can feel like a stretch, so make sure you're doing it in a way that feels nourishing for you.

What materials will I need?

You can create your artwork with anything... pencils, pastels, paints, collage, photography, digital art, recycled or found objects. I've made some of mine in tiny journals or on massive pieces of card. You might choose to take your inner artist shopping, or use what you have already.

I still have a question, how can I contact you?

I'm happy to answer any questions you might have. Send me an email at michelleamymorgan@gmail.com, or book in for a free 15 minute consultation at https://clientportal.powerdiary.com/clientportal/cocoon

I think I need extra support... What do I do?

Sometimes engaging in creative process can bring up some layers of experience for healing. If you're finding that you need some extra support, I am available for individual arts therapies sessions. You can find out more at my website: www.cocooncreativeartstherapies.com.au

I'm keen! When do we begin?

This online program will begin on the 4th October 2021.
