They are being joined by creativity and transformation leaders such as Flora Bowley, Amira Rahim, Amy Maricle, Dr. Eric Maisel, and others, and I'll be offering a workshop, as well. Each of the live video workshops is focused on experiential, interactive work and play so that those who attend will be drawn into actual learning and practice that they can use immediately in their lives.

MAB: Wow, that sounds like fun! And for people for whom traveling to Santa Fe might offer obstacles in terms of finances or time (like me!) it's a great opportunity to attend online, I am very excited! And I especially like the fact that attendees can access the videos afterwards, that makes it so much easier than rushing around in a conference, stressed about missing something!

JN: Yes, and we are offering two new features for this event: Popcorn Poetry and Show & Tell! These sessions invite people to jump in and share their own art with everyone present. This means that they get to show up on the virtual "big stage" and allow themselves to be seen and supported as they share what they have created.

MAB: What fun! How can people find out more information?

JN: Please visit our Gathering of the Creatives website - it's filling up very quickly with hundreds of people from around the world.

MAB: Conferences like these are important points of light in the pandemic adventure, thanks for sharing this info with us, and for visiting with OpEdNews. Do you have anything to share in closing?

JN: I just want to say "thank you for being here." I know for sure that every human has an inner creative self that wants to express itself -- and the world needs each of us to do this now more than ever before. That is the reason we started this annual event and I am so grateful to witness the grown of our Gathering. Even more than that, I'm grateful to witness the growth of those who join us for what has become such a transformative experience.

MAB: Thank you Jacob, and good luck with the conference!

Info on the Gathering of the Creatives conference, online Dec 4-6, 2020 is here.
