‘Monthly online group coaching sessions for artists to express and heal issues affecting their creative practice.
Artists explore the unknown in the world and in themselves, they can connect with collective and personal issues and through different mediums and processes bring to light truth, meaning and beauty. They make things known, their capacity to work with the creative energies expand them and their work.
What stops this creative expansion is fear, competition and blame which can lead to a withdrawal from what you love, which is painful, it is like losing a part of yourself.
Each month Tiffany invites you find more of your artist self, to heal your issues and to ignite change within that will expand your creative practice making it more effective, rewarding and visionary.
You know when you go to start a work, if you stick to an image of how that will look or sound, and you try to create the image you have of the end result, the work is frustrating and a bit dull. But if you use that image instead as a starting point, something else happens that evolves into something you couldn’t have imagined, you have vision throughout each step of the work, and that is where the success is. It is the same with life. Where we created idols about success, about being an ‘artist’, about what our practice is, about happiness, we lose the ability to ‘see’ and learn and experiment, we start to control from fear instead of letting the creative life evolve, unfold, gain momentum.
These coaching sessions give you the time, place and support to address where you are held back, so you can become more visionary, so you can be free of fears, controls and blame and create and live in the beautiful unfolding.
Everyone will have opportunity to talk about their issue, sessions will be insightful, including discussion, joining and exercises, as you regain more and more of your creative capacity and use that in your work and in your life. You will be invited to make commitments to your practice, to your happiness and to your gifts.
The programme is facilitated by Tiffany Robinson, new to the PoV Trainers Programme and a 100 day graduate. Tiffany has worked as a tutor, facilitator and mentor in the arts for over 15 years. Through her work, she has helped hundreds of creatives to recognise and achieve their potential, as a Founder and Director of ChArt Artist Network, lecturer at two Universities, and currently Programme Leader (Foundation) at West Dean College of Arts & Conservation. Tiffany began leading healing workshops in 2020, and has much to offer.
GROUNDINGS everyone attending agrees to the Groundings:
Confidentiality – anything shared within the group is private. Anything you want to discuss with those not in the group afterwards is fine providing there is no way of them being identified, and it about your process not theirs.
Presence – be present. Switch off anything that will distract you, pay attention to what is happening in the group. If you can’t be present then book a session at a more convenient time when you can be. If what you are experiencing is so intense that you are unable to listen, then book a 1-2-1 instead.
Trust the process – question everything for sure, especially what is true for you, but stay engaged with the process until the end of the call. Why? Because if you have an issue, it often comes with feelings that can be uncomfortable and when this happens one reaction is to withdraw. Instead, be aware of the feelings, and stay curious, keep listening, questioning and exploring until you get some resolution.
“The connection with nature and the Self underpins my art practice, I let the guidance come to me through intuitive use of materials and responses.
Artists wield great power in their gifts, often working with the unknown. I want to help you to boldly achieve your direction and goals, to be true to your gifts, your self, and your purpose.
My question is:
What do you want?
What is the gift you bring through your creativity that the world needs right now, that you need, that you long for?”
