Are you yearning to make the kind of beautifully expressive, deeply original art you admire but can’t seem to make that magic happen?

Everyone says art-making is all about showing up and going through the motions, but deep down you wonder if there is more  you can do to create your dream work.


Want to join me to find out what it is?



A Hidden Path to Inspiration



Imagine feeling so alive that your creative cup is overflowing for the first time in a very long while. You’re excited to be in the studio, fingers flying to catch up with your ideas, creating passionately and consistently.


Instead of feeling shy about your art every time you’re on Instagram or Pinterest, you’re confident and excited about your own ideas and unique way of creating.

And if you ever find yourself stuck it’s less about overcoming weariness, fear or resistance and more about this:


You see, showing up everyday and going through the motions isn’t enough to create great work. We can’t dream up inspiration out of thin air.

So pause and consider what it could mean if your life made your art wonderfully inevitable.


And then close your eyes and imagine this:

What if you found a secret door to a magical creative life that allows the art to find you?

What if exploring it reveals exactly what you need to do to get in creative flow, no matter what dimmed the fire?

How would it feel if you knew, without a doubt, that you could visit it anytime you feel blocked or out of love with your art, over and over again, for the rest of your life??

How would this change your creative process and the way you work towards your artistic dreams?

Imagine, you’d no longer be shackled to creative happenstance! You can work from a place of inspiration whenever you want, wherever you want, on your own terms. And you never have to lose this place, for as long as you live and create.

Even if you get stuck or when life interferes, you feel safe walking away knowing that all the inspiration and excitement would be waiting when you return.




wtl-quote-open Amy and Walk the Labyrinth has captured my concerns and needs as an artist better than we could have done ourselves. And what does anyone want more than being seen and understood?

The individual attention and mentorship was so personal and insightful! I know it will help me tremendously, in more ways than creating art and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for creating this! Most online courses/workshops, however good, don’t offer this closeness. This is such a beautiful offering. The content is magical, and so is the detailed art in our materials. Wow! Please, feel the difference of intention and energy when I say these simple words: Thank you! wtl-quote-close

-Valerie Marsh, Life & Creativity Coach, ‘Walk The Labyrinth’ alumnae.


Amy’s Story



I became convinced I wasn’t really an artist because I had nothing important or interesting to say. I didn’t realize that the artist life is consciously cultivated, that in order to take a stand with my art, I had to first live that life.

It took me years to realize that what I seek out and surround myself with, shaped the lens I viewed the world through, the very lens I make art with.

I created the Labyrinth of Enchantment because I was bursting inside to make richer, more evocative work. And to do that I knew I had to deepen not only what I know of myself, but how I was nourishing my artist’s soul on a daily basis.

Discovering how to Walk the Labyrinth cracked open my world and forever changed my relationship with my creativity ; it answered questions I’ve been pondering forever and I want that for you :



What makes you come alive?


wtl-quote-open When I signed up, I was hoping mainly to get out of my creative rut and be inspired. I can honestly say that I am blown away by what your course has done for me!

Gosh, I don’t even know where to begin in terms of my gratitude for the lovely soul who is Amy Won! I’ve taken a number of online courses, but none compare to Walk the Labyrinth. I have rediscovered my favorite materials to play with, dug more deeply into what my heart really wants to create right now, found a group of kindred spirits, and have felt like a kid at Christmas waiting for the next gorgeous, thought-provoking, and enchanted videos and workbooks to arrive! You are a natural teacher, and your passion for us to discover, learn, create AND have a wonderful template to use for the rest of our lives = priceless. wtl-quote-close

The Benefits



By ‘Walking the Labyrinth’ in a deeper way during the Expedition, you’ll be actively unearthing wonderful ways to work on your art every single day, even when you’re not in the studio, especially when you’re not in the studio.

You’ll practice trusting your own creative rhythm, how to create even when you’re stuck, and what you can do to maintain focus on a project without getting bored.

It’s not an e-course to take and forget, ‘Walking the Labyrinth’ is about the real work that goes on behind art-making-a lifelong practice of finding yourself over and over.

Each time you Walk the Labyrinth you’ll emerge with a stronger sense of self, radiant with conviction and confidence in your own ideas and processes. You’ll never be tempted again to make art that’s not true to you.



 

Through guided activities and Adventure emails, you’ll craft your own unique way of keeping your artist’s soul sacred, to guard what to let in and what to keep out.

And if your world is feeling a little narrow, ‘Walk the Labyrinth : The Expedition’ opens you up to the intertwining strolls of your fellow Explorers through Gatherings and Adventure Shares, giving you the excitement and courage needed to leave the safety of your studio (and screens) and explore the real world, where true inspiration lies.

But most importantly, you’ll create beautiful, lasting practices that allow you to go deep with the ideas you already have, so that they bloom into transcendent, inspiring work that can only come from you.

“We can’t find inspiration in a void. We must be actively looking, receiving, studying, copying, trying, putting on other coats. Keep making. It’s not that we only find ourselves once and never do it again. We do it over and over.”

-Rebecca Guay, Fine Artist & Magic The Gathering Illustrator

FAQ


๑ WTL is not just an e-course that you buy and don’t complete. It’s an immersive, magical, exploratory journey of creative self-discovery that is more guided life adventure than online course. It feels like an extension of everyday living and if you allow yourself to actively explore, you will change.

๑ WTL is not a workshop about emulating an artist’s technique, instead you’ll learn critical thinking skills and build practices that improve your creativity and originality-how to think, see, feel, explore, and how to access and shape your own creative truth so that you can design a practice that balances mind and heart, intuition with idea, structure with spontaneity.

๑It’s not a follow-me program, instead you’ll learn to be intentional and contemplative in your own creating-the catalyst to original thought.

๑ WTL is part mastermind and mentorship with plenty of personal attention. You won’t feel like you’re cast adrift without assistance, I’m very accessible.

๑ The main vehicle of teaching creativity in WTL is through story and enchantment, exploring and deep inquiry. So expect beautiful short films, evocative imagery and inspiring activity books to dive in and contemplate on-I’ve been told they’re like unwrapping Christmas gifts to your artist’s soul!

๑ The WTL Expedition not only provides the structure but also adventure guidance and fellowship for your creative explorations, giving you the courage and support you need to step outside your comfort zones and take your craft to the next level. I’ve been told it makes a huge difference to on-going action-taking!

๑ And something you won’t get anywhere else: it’s a unique chance to be a part of the real-life creative process of a working artist (me!) and witness my latest Big Audacious Creative Project unfold through my own adventures along with you. Ask me any questions about my process and learn from my epiphanies and mistakes in real time!

๑ There is no goal to meet at the end except enthrallment so it’s not another burden to add to your daily responsibilities. Instead it’s pure soul nourishment, a chance in your creative day to just have fun and indulge your artist’s soul. Your very own secret Permission To Explore. If you have time for self-care, you have time for this.

๑ The activities and lessons are designed in a way that feels like entertainment and encourages continued engagement. I’ve been told by quite a few students that this is the first intensive program they’ve stayed excited and worked on all the way to the end!

If you see yourself in these, WTL might just be exactly what you need right now:
๑You tend to work yourself to the ground without making time for recharge/replenishing.
๑You’re spending a lot of time comparing yourself to other artists and coming up short.
๑You’re feeling a little boxed in with how you’re getting inspiration-usually online, and you’re tired of all the Pinterest recycling going on.
๑You’re feeling depleted, in a creative rut or transitioning between creative careers and you’re looking to expand your world and get some of your excitement and playfulness back.
๑You feel scattered around your art-making and would like some structure and focus that’s based on your own truths.
๑You feel like everything you’re creating is for others and you’d like to be able to create just for you.

However, WTL is not for everyone. It’s probably not for you if
๑…you’re not open to contemplating deeply about your art and your creative process.
๑…you aren’t able to or ready to commit your time to your art and to nourishing your creative spirit for at least 3 months.
๑…you don’t believe that your creativity is something that you can work on.
๑…you don’t like exploring or trying new things.
๑…you’re not willing to step outside your comfort zone.
๑…you’re not willing to be vulnerable and share your creative journey with other artists.

Most importantly, what is your heart whispering?

๑ If you consider that most e-courses last between 4-6 weeks, the cost of WTL is very affordable as it’s a 4 month program with a monthly payment option over the duration of the Expedition.

๑ The work you do in WTL could improve the quality of your life beyond just the studio and I’ve been told that’s worth much more than the initial price.

๑ Infusing more excitement and focus into your creative life through WTL could very well help you finish blocked projects, discover a new Heart (personal) Project and improve your current paid work-always a good thing for bettering your livelihood!

๑ The tools and creative skills for unstucking and getting re-inspired can have a lifelong value to your creative productivity. Additionally, you’ll always have access to the materials to go over at your own pace as long as I’m still running it. (Anything you’ve downloaded are yours to keep, of course.)

๑ 12 weeks of intimate video gatherings with me and your fellow explorers as well as the weekly FB sessions means there will be lots of personal attention and guidance from me-the combined hours will be many times more expensive if we were collaborating 1-1 (which isn’t always available).

Even if you’re not a traditional or working artist (see more on this here) something in WTL is calling out to you- after all, you’ve made it this far in the Invite! I strongly believe that deep down inside, your creative spirit is looking for a way to express itself. If this feels true, WTL will be a wonderful way to awaken more creativity in your everyday life, and who better to learn this from than working artists who depend on it?

Through the activities, gatherings and adventure prompts you’ll have many opportunities to explore what inspires you that you can weave into your everyday creativity. You might even discover that you’re more of an artist than you thought!

WTL is a personal journey of creative self-discovery and while there may be others who are further ahead in their creative voyage, I’ve worked hard to put together an experience that helps you polish and bring to light your true creative gifts. If anything, you’ll likely find much encouragement and cheer-leading from your fellow Explorers for being uniquely you, making it more exciting to dive deeper into your natural strengths.

Also, unlike technique-style programs, WTL is all about crafting your own path to making inspired art so heart is all you really need to get started.

WTL is a methodology for going deeper into your creative process and finding flow. So if you’re stuck in translating ideas to tangible expressions, the Labyrinth (and our Expedition) will help you identify where the disconnect is and explore ways to fill in the blanks.

With weekly video gatherings and Q & A sessions , there’s lots of opportunities for me (and your fellow explorers) to help you brainstorm creative solutions and perhaps even discover a delightful path you hadn’t thought of before.
