In Creative Living Beyond Fear, Elizabeth Gilbert powerfully reminds us that we are all creative beings.

In her inspiring Calm Masterclass she asks, “Do you have the courage to seek and bring forth the treasures that are hidden inside of you?”
In addition to asking questions to start a revolution in your heart, she offers insight, wisdom and practical exercises to support you on the life-affirming path of creative living.
Give yourself permission to create the life you desire. As Elizabeth so passionately states, “It’s okay to want, and long for, and need that which we want, and long for, and need.”
Whether you dream of expressing yourself more fully, sharing your story, building something beautiful, connecting with like-minded hearts, or sprinkling more magic in your day-to-day life, this Calm Masterclass is the perfect place to begin your creative process.
"Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.” — Elizabeth Gilbert
