Tina has participated in Cassie’s Co-creating sessions, where writing and art making became one streamlined experience. Here is a quote from Tina about those sessions
“My creative sessions with Cassie always left me feeling open and receptive to possibilities. As a mother of two children who maintains a studio art practice it was very important to pick a writing instructor that understood the challenges and gifts of motherhood. My muse is my experience with the energy that surrounds me and to have someone like Cassie validate and encourage my voice as an intellectually engaged woman AND a mother has been empowering. She validated my sneaky suspicion that women are charting new territory in contemporary culture by our methods to collaborate, speak from our experiences, observe subtlety, empathize deeply with others, and maintain a strong head/heart/hand connection.
Not only that, but to enjoy the ride of creativity! To lighten up, take walks, swing on the playground swings, teach yourself to bake bread, and yes, write your first novel/poem along the way”
This is a description on the BlogTalk Radio website.
Co-Creating is about connecting in creative ways to the self, others, and the natural world to bring about balance, healing and empowerment.
