    Council of Muses, November 2019 Creative Practice

    For the month of November 2019, Council of Muses explored the theme of “Patience” as it sustains us in pursuing our goals, including patience with self, with circumstances and with outcomes that might not come as quickly as we would like.

For more information about the Council of Muses creative mastermind program, including monthly support calls and quarterly online retreats, email me at tara@taraerin.com.
