Dream graphic 
             You have a powerful Inner Creator within you!  It is there encouraging and urging you on to share your unique gifts and creations with the world. Unlike the Inner Critic, it has no doubts in you, and truly believes nothing can stop you from receiving what you want. Whatever dream you desire, your Inner Creator is there for you.  If your desire for your creative dream to be expressed is greater than its willingness to be silenced, you are ready to move on it!

            On Wednesday, October 22, 2014, Pam Murray, B.A., M.B.A., local artist and creative coach, will facilitate a lunch break workshop entitled “Laying the Foundation for Your Creative Dream: Playing with the  Powerful Energy of YOUR INNER CREATOR.”     Start time is noon and the location is the Campus Center Building, room 220. 

           Murray’s workshop shines the light on your Inner Creator.  Each person will be creating a type of container for the energy of your Inner Creative Wisdom so that you can call upon that energy whenever needed, joining with its inspiration to move you in the direction of your dream.  We will look at choosing to connect and be guided by its powerful, supportive energy to help us realize our dreams!
           Reservations are required.   To reserve a space for Murray’s Women’s Personal Enrichment Lunch Break Seminar, contact the Women’s Resource Center at 423-439-5772.

This Women's Personal Enrichment Lunch Break Seminar is free and open to the public.

The Center is dedicated to providing seminar and lectures series that explore a wide spectrum of concerns.

Although programs are designed to enrich and enlighten women, they are not limited to this group. Many seminars and lectures will interest the entire campus, community, and regional populations.
