Whether you’re a writer or a painter, a chef or a trapeze artist, a mom or a model, these fun and practical exercise will set your brain on fire, melt creative blocks and become part of your creativity tool box for the rest of your life.

Beginner to advanced writers welcome.
Paradoxical statements are those that are somehow both contradictory and true at the same time, like “I always lie” or “If I know one thing, it’s that I know nothing.” When we contemplate these statements, we facilitate brand new ways of thinking. As our brains try to make sense of the seeming senselessness of apparent paradoxes, our synapses fire in ways they never have before, carving out brand new neural pathways that cause us to shift perspective, create new patterns of thought, and draw on unexpected bursts of creativity. In this workshop, attendees will learn how to use their own curiosity and fascination to dissolve their creative blocks, mental blocks, life blocks and even long-held emotional blocks, through paradox.
