The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity


The book that changes lives

Are there dreams and creative projects that you’d like to pursue or revisit? Are you in a career or life transition, asking, “What’s next?” or “What do I really want?” and seeking to live more fully expressed? If so, join me in the spring and fall for transformational workshops based on Julia Cameron’s bestseller, The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity.

The Artist’s Way is for anyone who wants to live more authentically and “in color,” whether or not you call yourself an artist. I found the course in 1997 and it profoundly changed my life. Since 2001, I’ve coached and supported hundreds of people on this journey of creative recovery and self-discovery. The exercises in the book, the daily and weekly practices, the group support and my experienced facilitation will guide you to reclaim your passions and authentic expression as you learn to overcome procrastination, perfectionism and self-sabotage. The work takes you deeper into your life story and “issues” than the title may suggest and requires a commitment of time and energy, but the results are powerful and life-changing if you stick with the process and challenge your resistance. Intrigued? Read on…

My next 11-week intensives begin in mid-March 2016 in Arlington, MA, and take place on Wednesday evenings from 7-9pm or Thursdays from 11am-1pm, with a maximum of six students per group. The investment is $465 and payment plans are available. I’m also presenting an Intro to The Artist’s Way in February 2016 at The Arlington Center. To join us or receive individualized coaching in this powerful work, contact me. Meanwhile, you can peruse the book to see if it resonates with you, and enjoy these testimonials…


Margot, at Machu Picchu

“The Artists Way opened up new roads and inspired me to start living now! I took a sabbatical from my job to focus on my dreams of art and travel. This course helps you to actualize your dreams.”
–Margot Brown Slowick, artist

Kim’s Artist Way group was extremely helpful in bringing my short story to fruition. There’s something almost magical about the warm, compassionate, supportive and healing ambiance that Kim cultivates in groups.” –Jan Jacobson, Ph.D., writer and psychologist

“I took Kim’s workshop on The Artist Way last year to help me to return to writing poetry regularly. Kim masterfully moved the group through the course, and I later hired her to coach me individually. I find her a perceptive listener. Kim challenges me through my resistance and I find her notes at the end of our sessions helpful. I am now writing poetry on a regular basis.” – Walter Bacigalupo

Thanks to the time I spent with Kim and The Artist’s Way, I am definitely jumping on welding now and I love it. Here’s my latest creation.” –Caty Vaganay, artist

Because of Kim’s course, I took a long-awaited, much needed trip to Europe and started to play the guitar. Eventually, I started singing and writing songs, and I just released my second CD!” —Rory Michelle

Kim’s a great listener,  with an eye for seeing creative seeds long dormant. If you have any inkling that this workshop may be for you, I suggest you go for it!” –Bruce from LNM (Lawyer No More) Gardens

When I started Kim’s Artist’s Way workshop, I was overwhelmed, caring for my mom and managing the details of a busy life. By the end of the course, I had so much help caring for my mom that I had to figure out when I wanted to visit her! I’d also changed my work hours, moved closer to my dream of having a summer off, and reconnected with my entrepreneurial self.”
–P. Dery, Vendor of Fun and Happy Things

Not only did Kim’s leadership spur growth in me, but her guidance led to the birth of a powerful collective that continued to meet and support each other along the paths of possibility that Kim opened up to us.” -–Robert Rogers, writer

I had ‘worked’ The Artist’s Way by myself and even taken a workshop with Julia Cameron, but the small group work with Kim cracked, popped and blew me open. I launched a small consulting business after years of stalling, I was finally able to respect my writing and ‘put it out there,’ and I began drawing and writing about food and eating. Today I hardly recognize the alive, creative and happy person that I am.
–Catherine Johnson, Assembling a Cooking Life

Ever wanted to be a princess in glass slippers or live in a castle? Well, I did. And cinderellathanks to The Artist’s Way, I got to be Cinderella for the children at StoryLand! During Kim‘s course, I learned how to give myself the creative things I’d always wanted. Now the world is full of opportunities and ideas again!” –Beth Cahoon, researcher, educator and artist

Before The Artist’s Way, I pictured artists as magical beings. The course demystified what it means to be an artist. I now understand that, like love, hate, sadness, and joy, ‘being creative’ is a choice on the mood spectrum.” –Ana Morales, writer

“The Artist’s Way steered me back to an artistic path I’d ignored for 20 years. In this intimate group setting I met peers who also struggled with lack of self-confidence, long-discouraged dreams and emotional scars from old creative wounds. Kim guides her students through recovery with encouragement, inquiry, and personal stories. You might not toss your livelihood to the scrap heap and chase a life of artistic whimsy, but you’ll discover how you can weave creativity into your life as it exists right now.”
–Bob Marra, Lawyer and resurrected photographer

“THANK YOU for doing what you do. The class you offered on The Artist’s Way was the most important thing in my life this year. It prepared me for my move in ways that I didn’t realize, and I’m walking around my new city being carried by an expanded sense of Self. The Artist’s Way really is my new sacred text.” – Todd M., musician

At the beginning of the course I was a blocked filmmaker. By the end of the workshop I had won a short film competition. I highly recommend Kim’s workshop to anyone who wants to overcome creative blocks, renew their passion for life, and live out their dreams!”
–Victoria Merriman, web designer and filmmaker

Note: This workshop is not an art class, but it will make your life more colorful.
