1. What do I wear to such an amazing event?
For the day, please wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable, confident and empowered. You should be able to move so lose fitting clothing is preferred. And you will have the opportunity to change at the yoga studio before we head out for the evening. The evening will also be fairly casual, though you are free to dress up if you prefer.
2. What if I am not artistic or creative at all?
That's fine because the truth is, you are actually extremely creative, we all are — perhaps you just haven't had the chance to explore or express that creativity in a supportive setting. And that is what this day will be all about :)
3. What if I have never been to an event like this before and am not sure if I will like it?
That's great, too! I applaud you for investing in yourself enough to read through all the way to this part of the page, and I encourage you to take the next step in signing up. There is a reason you have read this far, and you owe it to yourself to try something new — who knows what it may open up in your life!
4. Is it possible to come for only certain workshops?
If you do not want to stay for the entire day, that is up to you, however we are not selling tickets to individual workshops alone. This day has been very carefully planned and crafted so that there is a flow from start to finish, and you will receive the most benefit from participating in all of the workshops, especially those you think you might not enjoy ;) The goal is also to have a full 7-8 hours with this phenomenal group of women in order to develop deeper connections throughout the day. Don't you deserve to give yourself a full 8 hours of creative expression and self-care?
You also have the option of booking a spa service (at a discount) with the amazing professionals at Floating Lotus during the time of a workshop you do not wish to attend.
5. Why a full day and not just individual classes/events?
We believe something special happens when you get a group of women together for an extended period of time. We have all done individual classes in the evenings/after work before, and our experience is that these one-off events do not have a lasting impact. After a long day of work, most people are tired and anticipating getting home. It is hard to be fully present in such scenarios, and the opportunities for deeper connection, with the experience and the others in the room, is far more limited. Spending an entire day together, however, gives us the chance to form deeper, longer-lasting connections and also gives more time for the work we are doing to sink in and stay with us, even past the 8 hours we are together.
6. Is this only for artists and super creative types?
No! This is a day for any woman who values art, creativity, community and empowerment. We all need an outlet for creative expression and have the capacity for creativity — even (and especially) the Lawyers, Doctors, Accountants, Business Consultants and other Left-brain dominant people among us.
7. What if I am super busy and have other obligations?
Don't we all! That is even more reason for you to take a day away from those usual obligations and commitments that is just for you. A day to relax, explore and connect — to yourself and those around you. Don't you deserve it?
8. What will I get out of all of this?
A better understanding of your own creativity and innate power. A deeper connection to yourself and the world around you. A new perspective on how creative practices can be used for self-development and discovery and are available and accessible to us all. New tools for accessing your creativity and expressing your most authentic self. A tribe of fellow curious, independent and artful women.
