“The Courage to Dream: Powerful Questions and Practices to Illuminate Our Creative Path”
Limiting beliefs and underlying assumptions hold us back in our lives and our creative work, giving rise to fear and self-doubt. Unexamined, they become the lens through which we see our world and unconsciously shape our view of what’s possible. How do we move from constriction to expansion, limitation to freedom, and fear to courage in our creative work? In this presentation, we will explore powerful questions and practices that challenge limiting assumptions and create new possibilities to live the life we have imagined.
