Barbara is a huge proponent of the book The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. This 12-week adventure changed her life in large, definitive ways. As she's suggested it to people over the years, many have started it once, twice... Hell, ten times! But they didn’t finish or commit to it all. The reason for these false starts is because we’re doing very provocative work. We often need a little loving support and guidance.

That's why Barbara began an Artist's Way Guided Group Experience. Together, we can recover the freedom in our creativity. Be held accountable in pushing past our limiting beliefs, fears, self-sabotaging ways and onwards. If you're interested for a future session, email barbara@barbarahowlin.com. 

Groups are kept small.

Above the Clouds
Artist's Spirit Accountability

But what's after the 3-month Artist's Way journey? That inner artist kiddo needs some more help and community along the way.


The ASA group and messages are for Artist's Way veterans. Part mastermind group, part continued soul healing. As a guide here, I provide loving candor, challenge us all to ask deeper questions and assist in setting new goals for the ongoing path. We relish ongoing community and encouragement to help us stay in empowered forward motion.


Our path is spiral. Our artistic path does not end. May we commit to enjoying the process, the small steps and the celebration of it all - together.


Daily Spirit Pages – Start carrying that notebook with you! Commitment to 2 handwritten pages each day to get out of that ego-brain and check in with your spirit.


Nature Grounding – Unplug and go soak it up. Once a week, minimum, commitment to return to nature. Leave the phone at home and go for a walk. Watch a sunset on the beach.  Meditate in the grass. Ground your energy and observe the natural world.


At the top of each month, I share a theme and message to unite us all on the same page. Each week there are shared prompts to take to those spirit pages and ask yourself more specific questions, suggestions for creative play and ways to open even further.
