Jan 27-April 14, 2017; Fridays 3-5pm EST

In this amazing 12-week course, creativity coach Ruth Schowalter guides you through an “artist's way" type of experience based around the popular InterPlay book Move: What the Body Wants by Cynthia Winton-Henry with Phil Porter.

In weekly, live, two-hour online coaching sessions Ruth supports visual art making, writing, and how to live creatively through your movement, stories, and voice. You get the book and a one-hour one-on-one session with Ruth. Only have 8 weeks? That's an option! By the end of the course you will know better how to:

• Expand the presence of creativity in your life
• Embody creativity in multiple ways
• Create either alone or in community
• Practice body wisdom as a daily imaginative act
• Release expectations of outcomes
• Experience more ease and joy in your creative process


Ruth Schowalter, visionary folk artist, communications educator and creativity coach, started The Daily Creative Practice to insure that her own art, dreams, and creative ideas get priority. Within InterPlay, an improvisational system that unlocks the wisdom of the body, she found all the tools she needed to put grace and an ethic of play at the center of life.

On the journey participants will play with:

The ABC’s of creative self
Creating the Physicality of Grace
Our Body is Big: Tapping into Your Kinesthetic Imagination
Abandoning Perfection, Embracing Creative Play
Releasing Fear, Leaping Roadblocks, and Being Seen
Experiencing Intelligence as a Joyous, Creative, Energetic, Physical Act
What do you know now about “Creating Daily What the Body Wants”?
Being a Word in Action and a Wild Voice
Dreaming and Creating in Your Communities
Accessing Wholeness and Healing through Creativity
Developing Profound, Creative Relationships to any Circumstance
Sharing Present and Future Creative Choices

To support the journey, whether you take the class or not, covenant to make creativity your home way.
(A covenant with yourself and the “Creating Daily What the Body Wants” community)

I, _______________________________, pledge to playfully engage my creativity using movement, storytelling, voice, and stillness during the next 12 weeks of this course, “Creating Daily What the Body Wants.”

I will be open to discovery as I embody my imagination. I will listen to what my body wants and play around with multiples ways (new and familiar) to express those wants.

I acknowledge that I may not always know what it is I want or what my next action will be. I know that I may, at moments, feel awkward, uncomfortable, and stretched in all kinds of ways. I promise to use “easy focus” (an InterPlay term) to release any expectations I might have about the outcomes of my creative play.

Finally, I commit to the daily creative practice of embracing the mystery that comes from embodied play. To the best of my ability, I will embody some aspect of my creative self each day in a measurable act (i.e., 60 seconds to 15 minutes in a dance, a short telling, a drawn or painted image, a meditation, a prepared food, a song, etc.).

Then, because documenting creative acts is a way of my honoring ME and WHAT MY BODY WANTS, I will report my imaginative acts and “noticings” in a journal using 3 words, a phrase, a sentence or more. There will be a private Facebook group created for this purpose.
