I’m so excited to share a new idea with you!
(I think you’re gonna like it).
The inspiration for ‘Bloom True TRIBE’ comes directly from my students who often share the most beautiful tales of transformation with me.
On a daily basis, I hear stories about newly discovered creative freedom, as well as massive (or subtle) shifts in life off the canvas. There are amazing tales of first time exhibitions, paintings sold and heart warming trips around the world (or down the block) to meet fellow bloomers. It’s really quite incredible to realize an entire worldwide community has emerged — bloomed! around this approach to painting and living. As you can imagine, I’m a pretty proud mama.
The very first time I taught a Bloom True class, I noticed the insta-tribe that sprung up between the students. Since then, I’ve always considered the community aspect to be one of the most potent and important parts of the Bloom True experience.
Whether it’s through an online Facebook group or an in-person retreat, the bonds that form between like-minded soulful creative seekers feel sweet… like looking in a mirror… like coming home. I know how much I depend on my own creative family to feel understood, accountable and inspired, so this is something I feel really passionate about sharing. I actually believe creative community is CRUCIAL.
<< This is where Bloom True TRIBE comes in! >>
TRIBE stands for: Tales + Reunions + Inspirations + Breakthroughs + Evolution.
TRIBE is a place for bloomers to share their stories, stay inspired and connect with each other. We imagine TRIBE will evolve and grow in exciting ways, but for now we simply welcome anyone who has ever taken a Bloom True class, either online or in person, to send your stories, inspirations and breakthroughs to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include TRIBE in the subject line of your email.
We will gather and chronicle your stories, and start to share them on the TRIBE page, as well as on social media and through our weekly emails. Please keep your shares between 1-3 paragraphs, and be sure to include images and links when possible.
If you need a bit of food for thought regarding what you might contribute to TRIBE, here are a few questions to ponder:
How has Bloom True has made a difference in your life — on or off the canvas? Has your approach to creativity changed? Has your approach to everyday life changed? Do you feel more brave? Are you more in touch with your intuition? Have you started showing your art…selling it? Have you had any creative breakthroughs? Have you connected with other bloomers from around the world? Have you found your tribe? How has the process inspired you the most? How has your art practice evolved since taking the course? What have been your biggest AHA moments?
We look forward to hearing from you and sharing your stories soon.
Spread the love!
