Regardless of whether you are just starting out or you’re already on

your artistic path, you’ll find OM Sanctuary’s Artist’s Way Creativity

Weekend to be a dynamic opportunity for you to explore what it means

to blaze new directions while you travel down the path of your own

artist’s way. Facilitated by poet James Navé, this supportive weekend

draws its inspiration from Julia Cameron’s best-selling book The

Artist’s Way, now celebrating its 25th year, plus Ms. Cameron’s other

works like Walking in this World, Finding Water, Vein of Gold, and

Right to Write. During this OM Sanctuary weekend, you’ll relax into a

playful sense of spirituality while exploring, along with other

artists, the many ideas around Safety, Identity, Power, Integrity,

Possibilities, Abundance, Connection, Strength, Compassion,

Self-Protection, Autonomy, and Faith.


Join us at OM Sanctuary for this uplifting and empowering weekend

designed for aspiring artists and professional/ working artists,

writers, poets, actors, painters, musicians, and creative individuals

from all walks of life, including the business world.
