“Many of us wish we were more creative. Many of us sense we are more creative, but are unable to effectively tap that creativity.” – Julia Cameron
The Creative Women Artist Circle is a place that will support you to get out of your own way and experience transformational growth in your divine creative expressions
Getting out of your own way means willingness to investigate:
♥ Resistance – the number one saboteur

I loved the Artist Way course with Aesha so much! I’ve done the course before and doing it again gave me a deeper access to my creativity and great connection and accountability in the group online. This work is magnificent and helped me stay grounded during a challenging time of relocating home. Thank you so much Aesha for holding the space and sharing this amazing journey. I’m going to do the course with Aesha again. I loved it.
The Artist’s Way has truly been a life changer for me. Julia Cameron is spot on in her interpretation of the creative mind. The book has become my go-to for emotional and creative guidance. With each chapter I feel as though Cameron delves into my psyche and allows me to uncover a deeper and deeper connection with my true artist self. This is a book to not only read, but to experience. It is not only relevant to practicing artists, but also extremely useful for anyone who identifies as creative.
Working through the book within a supportive circle of women under Aesha’s gentle guidance has been so beneficial for me. Aesha has a calm and sensitive approach that creates a feeling of safety, nurture and understanding. There is no judgement, there is no scrutiny, only support and sisterhood.
The journey of self discovery that The Artist’s Way uncovers is phenomenal.
I loved joining Aesha’s group for The Artist’s Way. I think it makes it much easier to do the process in a supportive group. Having the collective energy and Aesha guiding provides support and guidance to the 12 week process. My journey was a bit stop and start but I have made some wonderful connections from joining the group, and my Artist’s Way journey has definitely freed up some well hidden creativity. I highly recommend this process to anyone, and I feel inspired to create a local collective so I can undertake the journey again. There is so much richness within the Artist’s Way that it could be done again, and again, and again. It is a wonderful process and one I encourage everyone to explore.
Thank you dear Aesha for holding this space. I rediscovered a love of writing and reading for the pure joy of it, rather than reading books that I “should” read. I’ve also embraced my love of colouring in and let go that it’s not “art”. I’ve started adding to my vision books again just because I love sitting on the floor, cutting up magazines and making collages! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me create space for these joyful activities. Sometimes we need permission and you gave me that – to just do what I could in my own way! I’m now giving myself that permission. Thank you
Connection and Creativity
Live online circle gatherings three times a month via Zoom. Private Facebook group to connect and share as little or as much as you want plus I’ll be doing weekly FB live streams on the monthly topics and suggested explorations. Mini-Classes with guest experts.
After ignoring her own shadow artist, Aesha finally had to face her own blocks and admit that she was terrified of walking the wilderness of creativity. Instead, what felt safe was living according to others expectations, demands, and making constant excuses to not nourish her creative spirit. Of course this was unsustainable. We are creative beings and that creative expression is pushing through us like a seed sprout coming up through the ground to be in the light and grow.
There were so many excuses (read..fears) to not enter the wilderness of creativity that included, no time, no dedicated space for making things, it’s not a necessary thing to be doing, I have to focus on making money.
Aesha’s long time practice of yoga, mindfulness and meditations helped her to understand her true nature as not only a spiritual being, but a creative one as well. We are all creative beings wired for co-creation and bringing form from the formless into the world.
Aesha Kennedy has 30 years experience as a mindfulness yoga and meditation teacher, and a practicing artist for 20 years. She facilitates annual womens BlossOM retreats in Bali providing 8 days of nourishing your spirit through practices of mindful yoga practices, creativity and connection to spirit.
Aesha loves being in nature, and the teachings of non-duality. She has studied yoga in India, taught classes in the USA and Australia and studied Visual Arts in 1997 at TAFE Lismore, NSW campus. Aesha is a certified Life Coach through the Institute of Life Coaching Australia. You can join her fortnightly on her podcast, Brilliant Misfits, where she explores all things creative, mindful, and artful and talks with guests about being true to you and finding your brilliance.
I believe in divine timing. You know if this is the right time for you, even if there are butterflies about doing this. Listen deeply to your hearts wisdom. Trust in the YES. The mind will bring up fear and doubts but your heart will know.
7 months to transform your connection to your creative expression and artistry.
This is a transformative life enhancing experience that will spill over into all areas of your life.
