The Flourishing Artist Seminars
For every kind of artist, building a creative career is a creative project in itself…and a creative career is part of a creative life. Artists have unique but common strengths and challenges that are not addressed by regular coaching and mentoring programs. The Flourishing Artist seminar series allows those with creative inclinations to explore making positive change among like-minded and inspiring peers.
Each seminar explores different themes surrounding the creative process of flourishing, or moving to and beyond wellness into fulfillment.
Upshift into greater personal and professional capability.
Join award-winning writer and multidisciplinary dancer, comic, and writer Kristen Caven in discovering the hows and whys of powerful creative action, drawing on psychological research as well as personal experience. Sharing the inspiring insights of other artists, writers, poets, painters filmmakers and philosophers, we will not only learn new ways of creating greater happiness in ourselves and others, but will leave this class with new relationships that will bring more learning over time. Artists, especially working together—and especially especially armed with positivity skills—can help transform our highly dysfunctional and dangerous world.
Thriving, together, on our path of creativity.

Themes and Topics
The study of Positive Psychology has identified six basic paths on which humans find happiness: Positivity, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, Achievement, and Vitality, which form the core of the seminar series. Participants will explore juicy questions like “What are my signature strengths,” “How can I cope with rejection” and “Where is my creative sweet spot?” Facilitated conversation provides the opportunity to teach research-based techniques to help work on mindset and optimism, meditation and visualization, core brain needs, spirituality and goal-setting more effectively.
