It is our nature to create. Within each of us, there is a force that tugs at us from within to create and it often feels like a deep longing.

“All great work—artistic, poetic, intellectual or spiritual—is produced at those moments when creators forget themselves altogether and are free from self-consciousness.”

Here’s what some previous attendees have said about the workshop:
"I was so entirely embroiled in my busy life - painting, networking, volunteering and so on - that taking a whole weekend to explore my creativity seemed way too much and, were it not for a promise I made to a friend, I would not have given myself permission to participate in the Creativity Workshop with Carla Weaver. I am so very glad that I did. The interaction and acceptance from the others, the chance to pause and think about my focus in life and the calm, easy way the sessions were facilitated made it not just worthwhile, but essential. I took a long, hard look at where I am today, and made healthy changes that were long overdue. Thank you, Carla."

“I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. You did a great job of putting it together. I was thinking about what you said about creating something at the workshop. I count 3 things that I created: a painting, a collage and a box. I treasure them all. I started my book today and am thinking of using my special box for book ideas as they come up. “
Wendy Kotilla, Writer & Environmentalist
“It’s been one week since taking your creativity workshop, and I feel an amazing change inside. I am no longer fearful about expressing my creativity! Rather, I feel a calmness and a certainty that I am on the right path. Thanks to your workshop, I am currently writing my personal credo, defining my creativity goals, taking other art workshops and I feel energized and focused. What wonderful gifts! During the workshop you created a safe and non-judgmental environment that freed us to take risks in expressing our fears and hopes and dreams. You guided us with humility, spirituality, humor and a caring spirit. Please continue to give your workshop, Carla. It is badly needed in our world today.”
Dell Spencer, Retired Manager, Writer, Painter, Photographer
“Thank you for your “Expressing Your Creative Spirit Workshop.” I found that creativity is more than the occasional idea for a painting, poem or carving. Creativity is a process of mindfulness, finding expression in thought, word, movement, problem solving, having fun as well as those vehicles of expression generally associated with creativity. With your workshop, you have expanded my awareness of creativity, thereby enriching my work.”
- Gerry Wright, Artist
