Omega Workshop in August

Beth & David WilcoxSummer is flying by! It’s almost time for another wonderful week of teaching at Omega alongside my brilliant friend David Wilcox! I never know where teaching about songwriting will lead me. I do know that every time, in the process of teaching, as I look for new ways to describe how to open the heart into creative flow, I become convinced again and again that creative expression, the birthright of every person, is our greatest tool for healing, and deepening the experience of life. Omega “Songwriting From The Heart” Workshop with Beth Nielsen Chapman & David Wilcox

Centering by M.C. RichardsOne of my favorite books of all time about creativity is a book called “Centering” written by M.C. Richards. She’s a potter and a poet. But her writings about creativity are so rich and brilliantly describe how the very essence of creative existence works from the center. Being centered defines the success of everything from throwing a pot on a wheel to having balance in our lives. How does that apply to songwriting?  Well…that’s a whole other chapter!
