THE IMPORTANT “WHY”
This program will facilitate the process of getting around your brain so that you may access your deeper truth, free from story and conditioning. It is through creative play that we can tiptoe around the mind’s limitations and find the more expansive, beautiful truth within ourselves. This process will facilitate both creative action as well as meaningful inquiry into the vital role of the creative force in our lives.

MARIELLE AS FACILITATOR
With equal ease and satisfaction, I have given workshops to special-needs pre-schoolers and top level people at NASA. Creativity on tap, developing programs and guiding participants through an experience are core magics in my bag of tricks. And, I care, a lot. And that matters.
WHAT’S ASKED OF YOU?
Commit to following the creative prompts, no matter what, everyday for 45 days and share it in our supportive, respectful Facebook group.
WHAT’S WITH THE “NO MATTER WHAT?”
The no matter what is probably the most important part. When I did 100 Days of Vidi-Ditties, I created a video everyday, edited and posted, no matter what. Even when I had migraines, even when it was inconvenient, even when I was busy and thought I couldn’t fit it in, even when I was very cranky and said, “ I don’t want to make a f#cking vidi-ditty today”, I showed up for myself, my creativity. And the day I said that I didn’t want to, I made my favorite ditty. When I crossed the literal line, in this case a doorway, from not wanting to, to showing up, magic happened. The reality of life is that there will be times when we don’t feel well, things are inconvenient, or we just don’t want to do the very thing that is best for us. This 45 days gives us the opportunity to show up for what matters and kick the excuses right in the kanickies (Austin Powers reference).
And, if you miss a day, give yourself a hug, and keep moving.
WHAT DO YOU NEED?
A smartphone. Or some way of taking photos and easily uploading them to our FB group ( a FB account, even a temporary one for the group) A journal.
DO I HAVE TO SHARE?
Yes, you really do. :)
The intention of this program is all about play and the willingness to engage with imperfect action. If there is one thing that will kill creativity, it’s perfectionism. If the idea of sharing something that isn’t polished to perfection makes you squirm, I feel you. I really do. And, this is a deeply important practice to be able to engage with creative play and not judge it.
FOR WHOM IS THIS PROGRAM MEANT?
Whether your creativity is buried under a boulder or free flowing this exploration has something for you.
IT’S ESPECIALLY USEFUL FOR PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY’RE NOT CREATIVE OR TOO BUSY TO BE CREATIVE.
WILL WE BE MAKING ART?
You are free to call it whatever you want, however this program is more process-oriented than product-oriented. It is more about opening or deepening new channels of creativity. It is definitely not about technique and technique will not be taught. The prompts will be things that anyone can do.
Some prompts are actions while others are creative inquiries and self-investigations.
HOW MUCH TIME AM I EXPECTED TO SPEND EACH DAY?
Most prompts can be done in 20 - 30 minutes. Some are designed to be done easily within a busy day. The ones that may be longer will be posted on the weekends. It’s better to do it quickly and imperfectly than not do it at all. Quickness breeds creativity and is a great workaround from procrastination and the idea that we need a lot of time to be creative.
WHEN DOES IT START?

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
