On Wednesday, May 11, 2016, Pam Murray, BA, MBA, certified ARTbundance
practitioner, coach, and artist will present
“Dream, Write, Live Your Truth: The Story of Your Life.”
Location is the Campus Center Building, Global Understanding Video Conference Room. Start time is noon.
If your life were a book…what would that book include about this particular time in your life? What is written on the pages of your heart? What is hidden between the lines?
Books can take us to all kinds of amazing places and open our imaginations. They can make us laugh, cry, get angry, dream of adventures, perplex us, inform us, open our eyes. We experience life in a book, connecting with pieces that stir something within us.
In this workshop, you will explore truths about yourself through creating a portion of a book….your book. You will be guided to do some writing, illustrating, imagining, and remembering as you enjoy the no-skills-required journey of self-awareness through creation that opens us to dream, write, live and love our truths. Join us on the journey!
Our creativity needs more time and attention to bring about balance in our heart and bodies and live life in inspiration and passion!

This lunch break seminar is free and open to the public.
