I love working with artists and writers… AND I have a class for artists and writers coming up this weekend at Book Passage in Corte Madera, I hope you can join me! Scroll to the bottom for details.
This month I spoke at the California Writers Club. It was their super fun Halloween meeting, and I had the honor of judging the costumes. I’m here with president Edie Matthews, whose costume is Alfred Hitchcock’s movie “The Birds” (she’s being attacked by birds.) I hope YOU had a GOULISH halloween.
The Power of Metaphor to Unlock Creative Genius
Book Passage, Corte Madera CA
Saturday, November 10th
10 am – 2 pm. $100
Acts of genius or dramatic breakthroughs can only affect the world order when they’re joined by a powerful metaphor. Indeed, establishing the metaphor itself is the act of genius and entry into new areas of knowledge is its consequence.
~ Richard Shiff, Guggenheim recipient
Metaphor takes us ‘under the surface’ of our everyday consciousness, into a Deep Creative realm that lies beyond the linear mind. In this experiential class you will directly tap into your own metaphoric imagery and symbolic language.
Metaphor is the basis of our cognitive system, which means that all of us view the world through a metaphoric lens. In this class, you will discover the ways in which metaphor is currently influencing how you see the world, your life, and your creative work. And, you will also discover the metaphoric imagery that the Deep Creative wishes to express through you.
You don’t need to be a writer to benefit from this class. Artists, teachers, organizational leaders, coaches, therapists, and others who wish to expand their ways of learning and knowing are welcome.
