The Power of Opening Creatively, Igniting Your Inner Flame
Sedona AZ (March 6, 2013) – Our Voices Are Alive continues the Workshops for Women series with “The Power of Opening Creatively, Igniting Your Inner Flame” at Studio Live on Sunday March 17th at 2pm.
Building on a successful 6-woman concert at Studio Live in December, Our Voices Are Alive is expanding into a grassroots movement. In partnership with the Verde Valley Sanctuary and the Sedona Performing Arts Alliance, Our Voices Are Alive is providing workshops and events for the creative self-expression of women in Northern Arizona.
All workshop proceeds will benefit the Verde Valley Sanctuary, a multi-service agency that responds to the presence of family violence and sexual assault in our community.
The power of Opening Creatively: Igniting your Inner Flame – Mindy Mendelsohn
Each of us has limitless potential to be creative, often hidden as a light within, waiting to be sparked. This amazing inner flame, our own creative nature, connects us to our inner essence and feeds our life force. Our creativity opens powerful choices and opportunities, it acts as a nurturing guide and points to guideposts along our path. When our flames are low we are vulnerable and often feel filled with worry and self doubt. When we become creatively blocked, when our flames have not been cared for and fed, we hunger for things outside ourselves to make us feel better.
This two hour workshop will guide your through a series of exercises designed to ignite or reignite your light and give you tools to continue to nurture your creative essence.

Founding members and facilitators of Our Voices Are Alive intend that in the workshops all women be given the strength and inspiration to embrace the following: “I am a gift to this world. I embody strength, love, and compassion. I fully accept, respect, and celebrate all that I am. My authenticity is needed. I am the catalyst for my own empowerment. I am enough. The time has come to express myself courageously! I join with my sisters around the world to serve as a point of love and compassion that uplifts and nurtures the whole planet, bringing comfort, relief, humor, and understanding wherever I am.”
Subsequent workshops for women will be held one Sunday a month from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Studio Live in West Sedona.
