How It Works & A Note From Emily Ann:

Welcome to The Artist's Way! It is THE most life-altering book I've ever read. It's not really a book though. It's a full-tilt workbook with soul-healing deep dives aimed at recovering the creativity we've long forgotten.

This experience is not for the faint-of-heart. You'll need to commit a significant amount of time to the process. There is homework. There will be moments of discomfort & elation. It is all so worth it!

The School of Bravery is VERY similar. It's a learning lab for creative visionaries to apply new skills to their life, career, and creativity. We meet regularly for masterclasses, office hours, guest expert trainings, and much more. By participating in this offering of The Courageous Artist's Way, you'll get access to everything in the DIY enrollment level!

Pairing the two experiences together just makes sense. The kind of sense that will make you say, "DUH!" 

If you're already a student, you're automagically enrolled! Simply log in to your student portal! Yay!

If you're not a student, then you can choose to *only* do The Courageous Artist's Way or participate in everything else in The School of Bravery also. Up to you! Whatever experience fits your current season of bravery is just fine! After enrolling, you'll receive your welcome emails, login credentials, and all your next steps.

Beyond that, there will be LOADS of support available from myself and your fellow creatives who are right there with you! 

The effort is SO worth it! Tapping into your creativity doesn't have to feel like a slog. This could be the most abundant, beneficial, life-changing decision you've made, perhaps in your whole life. (I don't say that lightly, believe me.)

Your life will never be the same.

See you in class! xoxo!
