An Intro to the Dao
It's easy to get lost in the uncertainty, scarcity, and stress of everyday life post-pandemic. But there is Another Way! Dao practitioner and artist development coach Emileena Pedigo has cultivated an innovative technique to navigating all this "lack." She believes that championing balance in every moment is a shortcut to finding the Dao. 🙏🏽
The Dao, "way" or "path," is a zone of unlimited possibility, holding space for all thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

You've found your Vision, now what? Well, it's time to tell your story! This Meetup will explore how to authentically package an artist's Vision to generate opportunities that will bring it to life.
An artist's Vision for their career is closely related to their purpose as a human. How much time have you spent figuring out what that is? That's what we're exploring at the Meetup.
A customized strategy can address all #artistproblems. It's the secret sauce to a sustainable career in the Arts - no matter what stage of development your career is at. This Meetup will explore how to incorporate strategy into the day-to-day practices of an artist, across all disciplines.

Stress is a part of the daily life of an artist, whether you're feeling stuck in the artistic process or struggling to meet your business goals and deadlines. It seems we are constantly promoting, selling, and strategizing. This cycle can block the creative flow and in fact stagnate business. Alison Kate teaches a highly effective set of quick and easy-to-learn tools for behavior change and emotional regulation that participants can practice on their own. Participants experience noticeable shifts immediately, better able to navigate life's fluctuations.
