From Resistance to Creative Flow With The War of Art

Reading The War of Art by Steven Pressfield in preparation for the next Creative Oasis Book Club tele-class series has been an enlightening experience. With each page I feel a powerful connection to Pressfield and his desire to help us break through our own resistance. I admire his unabashed honesty. He holds nothing back as he calls spade after spade regarding our communal love affair with resistance to pursuing our creative dreams. Pressfield fully understands our propensity to procrastinate...our reliance on resistance...our preference for putting off our hearts' desires. His book serves up an in-your-face wake-up call that this must end if we're to live the creatively fulfilling lives we're meant to live. I love this book!

I hope you'll join me for the next Creative Oasis Book Club series as we explore The War of Art May 2nd through 19th. Much more than a typical book club, this unique three week teleclass series provides an in-depth exploration of the book plus creative prompts to encourage us to put the lessons Pressfeld shares into immediate practice in our own lives.

In addition to helping you to dive deeper into the experience of reading The War of Art these thought-provoking and fun creative exercises foster interesting and meaningful discussion during our telelclass calls. (This is very low-pressure - not homework - simply prompts to use and enjoy in whichever way feels best to you.)


* Three 1-hour interactive teleclass calls
* Three sets of creative prompts and activities created specifically for each call
* Three links to the recorded calls 
(if you're unable to attend the calls lives or just want to revisit the sessions on your own time)

Three consecutive Thursdays 
May 2, 9 and 16, 2013

Here's what members of last month's Creative Oasis Book Club 
have to say about their experience:

"The Creative Oasis Book Club was a wonderful chance to encourage myself to take time to read a book I have been wanting to read but just haven't made the time to do so. The group members' insights and perspectives expanded my thinking. The prompts for thought and exploration Jill provided for each chapter added new ideas and dimensions to my reading. What a enriching experience. I can't wait to join in the fun for her next book club!" 
– Twyla Smith

 "I really enjoyed participating in the Creative Oasis Book Club!
My favorite part of the experience is hearing others perspectives of how Austin Kleon spoke to them and encouraged them. I liked your thought provoking prompts and I love that there was no real homework.  We could do the prompts on any level that we wanted and pick and choose what might organically work."

– Debbie Stinson

I look forward to navigating new creative territory with you as we explore the many ways 
The War of Art may help us moved passed resistance and dive into the freedom of creative flow.

All the best from my Creative Oasis to yours,
