Book-Based Learning Groups

This method is a means of supporting you in a process of DIY “Personal Change Management” by introducing supportive fellow travellers.

We offer various ways to help you begin your journey to becoming the best version of yourself.

Change is inevitable. You can either be blown over by it or lean in and hoist a sail. Why manage the sail single handedly? We’re here to share the journey in 6 & 12 week facilitated groups.

Additionally, Facilitated, Supported and Self Run Supported 12 week groups form quarterly covering many of Julia Cameron’s subsequent books.

You determine which vehicle suits you or your group:

Our guidelines for working in book groups are adapted from the “Creative Cluster’s Guide” Julia Cameron provides in the Artist’s Way. It is an excellent outline of necessary ground rules and boundaries with encouragement to be:

“… self-loving. If the facilitator feels somehow “wrong” to you, change clusters or start your own. Continually seek your own inner guidance rather than outer guidance. You are seeking to form an artist-to-artist relationship with the great creator. Keep gurus at bay. You have your own answers with in you.”

Additionally, all groups are conducted under the Chatham House Rule.

“The Chatham House Rule reads as follows:

When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.The world-famous Chatham House Rule may be invoked at meetings to encourage openness and the sharing of information.”

How many half-finished self-help books are on your shelves? Don’t beat yourself up – we’ve all been there.

You’re not the problem! Change is scary and fear is paralysing – so just don’t go it alone.

Dublin, Belfast and online groups form quarterly. Additional groups can be added along the M1/A1 corridor (Dundalk, Newry, Banbridge) as groups of 5 or more commit.

Fall 2019 groups are run from September through November; use the form at the right to get in touch for further information.
