Anyone can be creative and intuitive The training methods of the great artist of the past didn’t just teach them the skill of the craft. They were taught in a way that required them to submit to the directions of a master and so engendered a humility. At the same time they would have a spiritual life that encouraged an openness to inspiration and a desire to follow it if given. In short, their training taught them to be open to God’s inspiration and to recognise it when it was given. This is the source of the great beauty and rich creativity of their work and here’s what’s so good about this. You don’t need to be an artist to benefit from their training methods. If any of us do what they did, we can be creative and intuitive in pursuing our own personal vocation. And if you don’t know what your personal vocation is yet, this will help you to find that too.
The weekend summer retreats hosted by the Way of Beauty Atelier at Thomas More College of Liberal Arts in Merrimack, New Hampshire, can teach you these traditional methods. It is a peaceful campus with a traditional New England feel and the perfect place to learn and grow. To find out more details, follow the link through to the college website, here.
