    The Center for Creative Emergence
    Public Workshops & Events

    We are excited to bring you a new workshop in December - co-created with Harrison Snow of Team Building Associates. Harrison and I are combining forces in our work with collective intelligence to bring you real-time experience in "Practicing the Power of Presence."

    I recently attended the Project Renaissance conference. In the middle of one of the guided sessions using Win Wenger's popular CPS technique called Beach Head (see, an all new set of creativity tools and techniques emerged into my consciousness. My mind was flooded with ideas and images that will become the ShapeMaster Creativity Series. I am in the process of developing it now and look forward to sharing it soon in a new workshop and workbook. If you have time to participate in any of Dr. Wenger's local Thinktanks, I highly recommend the experience.

    Enjoy warm and happy holidays!

    The Power of Being Present
    Tuesday, December 20, 9:30-5:00

    A Collaboration between Harrison Snow and Michelle James. A workshop for leaders, facilitators, team members and anyone else who seeks to be more relaxed and effective in a group setting. The more present we are, the more fully we bring ourselves to each moment, and the deeper we can engage with our group or audience. This workshop is about creating more of the power and transformation that comes from being present - being in a resourceful state, alive to the moment as it is. We will practice our innate skill of presencing. A group of fully present people also creates a field of immense creative potential. In the final part of the workshop, we'll explore ways to free the natural expression of this creative potential.
