Thrife – 2nd Edition: Creating a Thriving Life offers the potential for recovering your creative soul and a transformed life. Sounds grandiose, yes? But I’ve experienced it myself, and so have others who just finished the first edition of the course!
The first edition of Thrife began as a re-working of Julia Cameron’s book, The Artist’s Way, which was transformative for me when I began to listen to my creative urges 25 years ago. Thrife also drew from my past experience as pastor, artist, author, and singer-songwriter, and was shaped by the wisdom at the heart of our religious traditions, and at the heart of the brave souls who found their way to their creative center. Thrife – 2nd Edition, draws from the feedback from participants from the first course, and integrates recent research about cultivating creativity and lasting change.
Thrife is not about becoming an artist. It’s about recovering and living into our soul’s creativity. If we are made in the image of the Creator we, too, are creative, and that creativity stretches far beyond the usual categories – artists, painters, dancers, poets, and musicians – to include teachers, administrators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, etc. As Joseph Chilton Pearce puts it, “We must accept that this creative pulse within us is God’s creative pulse itself.” Thrife will help you recover your creative soul, whatever that looks like for you, and bring it to life!
Thrife, is a word I made up, combining Life and Thrive. For me it captures what Jesus meant when he said, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” We certainly have life, but how many of us experience it abundantly? Too many of us are not thriving. Thrife, does not take us out of this world – it throws us more deeply into it. It invites us to live deeply from the center of our creative souls, where our true gifts and boundless energy spring. Spirit/Energy incarnates into form, matter, your life and mine! Thrife is for here and now, in the middle of this beautiful and messy world!
