 Breaking News!!

Unfortunately, I have had to cancel the two workshops in late May and early June because of Covid flight restrictions and other uncertainties. We are going ahead with September though and folks are already booking, so that is encouraging. Apologies to all those who have been disappointed for cancellation of May/June.

REDISCOVERING YOUR CREATIVITY, part 2

September 15 to 20

 

Courageous steps in finding the creative adventurer you've always wanted to be.

My workshops kick aside useless inhibitions, sidestep clever notions and well worn strategies. They dive straight splash into the deep pool of your creativity: doing by doing, plunging you into a powerful source of energy, where you'll wonder, at the end of the workshop, why it has taken you so long to get there.

Time away from the constraints of modern life and to breath the mountain air beneath the majestic Monte Vettore. To delight in the peaceful beautyof Cittadella amongst like minded people

  

From my little town I glimpse the Sibillini mountains every day and they always enchant me with their changing moods throughout the winter. Sometimes completely covered with fresh glistening snow and another day with a patchwork of dark thunder clouds. Today they seem as I could reach out and touch them, the sky is so clear and deep blue and they are all capped with winter's snow on their peaks.

 

 Summertime in the Sibillini mountains is an exquisite time of year. Avoiding the  heat of July and August below Monte Vettore and her sister peaks, our workshops are coloured by patches of rich reds and yellows higher up towards the peaks. as if in celebration the very richness of nature and her bountiful gifts, in a background of the crystal clear blue sky above. The mountain eagles and falcons are scouring the fields below, forever searching for food for their offspring. Butterflies and honey bees abound in the unpolluted air, and we are all entranced by this symphony of life which thrives at this altitude. 

 

A tantalising weekend workshop which focuses on the wonder of nature and her affinity with art and creativity.

 

Our days. We arise early of a morning before breakfast to stroll down to the pool for Tai Chi or Ci Kung.

Here, it is as if we are floating in the sky, or at least the swallows and house martins might think we are as they swoop down and around us and falcons glide blissfully high up above us.

Staying at Cittadella, you can't help but become absorbed in Nature, and there are places close by amongst these mountains which are somehow sacred by the waterfalls, the gushing streams and rivers, the ancient pathways. And our walks and adventures hereabouts allow us to shed ourselves for a while of the strains and stresses of our lives and to allow our creativity to flourish. We paint, we write poetry, we photograph, and we share our experiences with one another, forming new and lasting bonds in our lives.

 

So who do my workshops attract?  I would say, folks who have some experience, an affinity or just simply a growing desire for creative expression; any type at all photography, music, writing, sketching, painting, handicrafts, gardening,

 

They would have a love of sharing too and would probably be less rational and more poetic by nature.

 Our intentions are that you come away refreshed, clear and enthused about the next steps in your own personal artist’s journey…And it's a journey of re-discovery and learning how to keep awake in this restless world, awake to the wonder of nature and the necessity of keeping our creative selves alive

                                

 The pool at Cittadella

 And our objective always is to take you back to your original creative self; to immerse you once more in the magic pool of your precious creativity which has been waiting for your attention for so long. Our programme works wonders and you'll love it! And what's more we give you a tool kit to take away with you so you never lose this gift again

Duncan Campbell writes:

I came to Michael’s Creative Mind workshop to help find the creativity that I know is inside me but is so often elusive thanks to the conditioning of today’s world. My hopes were high, but nothing in my expectation prepared me for the journey of discovery he launched me on.
