Welcome to The Creative Living Academy

Class Registration is Open

Awakening your creative capacity is something you do in the everyday. It’s not one bold action, completed and left behind. It’s the constant powerful unfurling of your spirit into the world. It’s the strength and flexibility that comes from being grounded in creative practice, having your heart and mind tuned in to the inner compass of your creative heart so that you are ready to fully embrace the adventure of living a creative life.

A Season of Creative Practice

This season we are focusing on offerings that will support you in developing and making the most of a creative practice.

What would be different if you started your week with time for you?  What if, in a space of quiet and calm, you could hear your heart and build your plans with its wisdom?

With Mindful Mondays, you will embark on a weekly practice of meditation, imagination and journaling that connects you to your inner compass and allows you to develop and focus your plans based on insight and self-trust.

The practice is simple. The impact is palpable.

Join us starting May 26th and let the magic begin.

Imagine having a journal that supports your creative process and practice a journal that not only holds the space for your inspirations and celebrations but that also becomes a beautiful keepsake of your journey as an artist.

The Studio Yearbook brings together creative practices that have been in use at Jamie Ridler Studios for years!

Imagine one place to celebrate the seasons and make a dreamboard under the full moon, one place to gather your gratitude and acknowledge yourself with gold stars, one place to be inspired, to learn, to experiment, to grow – a special place to bring your creativity to life!

During the week before the season begins, you will receive four instructional videos to guide you into the seasonal, monthly, weekly and daily creative practices that are central to your Studio Yearbook. It’s a wonderful way to start an adventure!

“I can’t believe one book fits that much joy in it.” Sundeep Grewal.
