Muse Speak II

Muse Speak II with Heather Geoffrey
Saturday, August 24, 9:00am to 12:00pm
or
Thursday, October 10, 5:00pm to 8:00pm
Cost: $30

Description:
What is a creative muse? Dictionaries define the word muse in different ways – either as a verb, a noun, or as a proper noun.

Verb – to muse; to ponder; to think deeply and at great length; to meditate.
A proper noun – In Greek mythology any one of the nine goddesses who were the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne — Calliope, Clio, Euterpe, Melpomene, Terpsichore, Erato, Polyhymnia, Urania, and Thalia. They were each given providence over various aspects of the arts and sciences and thought to favor and inspire selected humans.
A noun – The spirit or power that is thought to inspire or watch over poets, musicians, artists, or scientists; the source of one’s genius or inspiration.

Potentially, each of us has sources of genius or inspiration. The tricks are first finding them and then honoring them. Some of us have found our well-springs or touchstones — places, activities, rituals, people, or things — which in some way support the attainment of inner peace, joy, creativity, or well-being. The secret here is in maintaining these sources. This class will explore ways of nourishing and honoring our connection to the muses who provide us with inspiration and creative source.

Heather Bio:
Heather Geoffrey is the Managing Director of Main Street Arts and a practicing interdisciplinary artist. In conjunction with her artistic practice Heather has offered consultation & support services to artistic and creative individuals: working in a dynamic collaboration aimed at cultivating each person’s connection to the source of their artistic practice while assisting them in navigating the obstacles creative individuals are faced with on a daily basis.

Workshop: Dream Journals

Workshop: Dream Journals

These workshops will be led by Angus McCullough, creator of the site-specific installation Coincidence Control, and Jonathan Gitelson, curator. Participants will be guided through the process of making simple books to use as dream journals.

At the first workshop (August 10), McCullough and Gitelson will share tips and tricks for remembering dreams, using them in waking life, incorporating them into the creative process, and perhaps even utilizing techniques for lucid dreaming. Stating one’s intentions in the dream journal increases the potential for activating these subconscious narratives.

At the second workshop (September 21), participants will reconvene to discuss their individual dream journaling processes (successful or not), and new participants will make their own journals.

Space is limited to 10 people for each workshop, and pre-registration is required. The two workshops can be taken as a series, or either workshop can be taken on its own. The workshop fee is by donation.

ADMISSION: $10 suggested donation; no one turned away for inability to pay
Ages 12 and up. Space is limited to 10 participants. Registration required.
