        For a while now, I've been participating in The Artist's Way with Manon and Lena. For me, the group is fantastic, and I would even say it's an almost indispensable addition to the book itself. I could certainly go through the book on my own (although I probably wouldn't manage to muster the discipline to do it entirely independently), so in that aspect alone, the group is important to me. 

        But what's even more crucial is to journey together with other creatives who are also grappling with how to bring more creativity into their lives. Having a kind of commitment with them, saying, "we're doing this, this is important to us," strengthens me in my solo creative adventure. Especially because I don't always have these people around me in my environment. The group thus provides a constant affirmation of: "I'm not crazy for wanting this ;)". That feeling. 

        Additionally, exchanging thoughts about the morning pages, the artist date, and the book itself continually brings new perspectives and ideas, tapping into new layers that I probably wouldn't have discovered on my own. We inspire and support each other, making The Artist's Way even more enjoyable and valuable to pursue.

        Manon's care and dedication and presence are so clear, and her ability to hold a safe, structured, focused yet fluid and open space for learning and reflection are truly impressive. Basically, I love it!"
