The first time I taught a Bloom True class, I noticed the instant community that sprung up between the students.
Whether it’s through an online course or an in-person workshop, the bonds that form between creative seekers is potent — 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 I’ve always considered the community aspect to be one of the most potent and important parts of the Bloom True experience.
I believe that a creative community is a crucial part to creative well-being, and this is why I’ve created this page.
On a daily basis, I hear stories about newly discovered creative freedom, as well as massive and subtle life shifts off the canvas.
There are amazing tales of first-time exhibitions, paintings sold and heartwarming trips around the world (or down the block) to meet fellow Bloomers.
It’s incredible to realize that an entire worldwide community has emerged — bloomed — around this approach to painting and living.
As you can imagine, this makes my heart very happy.
What warms my heart even more is nurturing more connections between like-hearted creatives — by sharing your wonderful stories, and fostering a real-life gathering.
I deeply believe that sharing your personal stories is one of the most powerful ways to inspire and connect to others, so please keep your stories coming, and I’ll keep sharing them.
