Join the community at Playhaus for a group experience walking week by week through Julia Cameron’s legendary The Artist’s Way. This thirteen-week group creates a community around creative practice, inviting you into a process of discovering, healing, and transforming your relationship to your creativity and the weird, brilliant artist you know you are deep down. The group will start off with a kickoff meeting and then the following week we’ll dive into the twelve-week workbook! This is an anti-perfectionist group, so please feel free to join us even if–especially if–you’re scared you won’t be able to “do the whole book perfectly.” Register now!

Carter Umhau, MA, LMHC (she/her)—a psychotherapist, creative mentor, artist, and writer—will be hosting and leading this group. She has been leading creative workshops and creative therapy groups since 2009 and loves working one-on-one as a creative mentor with folks who are recovering their own creative freedom and life force, or who want to use their creativity as a source of their own medicine. You’ll be in charge of acquiring your own copy of the Artist’s Way and, by joining the group, you are committing to doing the work on your own! There’s no need to do it perfectly, but we do ask that you engage the process your way. Groups will meet weekly and be a space to share experiences, discoveries, and reflections from the week and to engage in guided conversation about creative blocks, resistance, and artistic identity.

The price includes:
– 19.5 hours of group over 13 weeks at Playhaus in DC’s Union Market…so that’s less than $40 a group!
– An invitation to join a group chat where you can touch base with folks outside of group time—share the process in real-time, encouraging your accountability and engagement with your own creative practice.
– Discounted access to one-on-one sessions with group facilitator Carter Umhau, a practiced creative coach, psychotherapist, artist, and writer, to go deeper around your process doing the Artist’s WayPaying in full up-front provides a $50 discount. Please note that paying for the first six weeks of the course is our way of providing a payment plan. We will reach out to you after five weeks the invite you to complete your second installment of $275. There are a limited number of pay-what-you-can spots in this group. We want you to join us, so please reach out to Carter at carterfleetu@gmail.com with any questions!
