Creatrix: She Who Makes
I’m so excited to announce that my new book is ready to pre-order.
Creatrix – She Who Makes will launch on November 30th 2019.
And my, is she beautiful…and big. She’s a bigger format than any of our previous books, at 235 x 190mm (think the size of The Artist’s Way and The Heroines Club) 364 pages…and almost 110,000 words…plus illustrations!
We’ve managed to keep every single one of our books under 500 grams…but not this one! Sadly this means shipping is more than usual…so please, please, if you want a signed copy, get it as a pre-order, as we can keep shipping rates lower because we are doing a bulk mailing…otherwise you’ll be better off getting it from Amazon in early December (we are not sure it will be available on Book Depository before Xmas, and it will not be on Kindle until the New Year.)
Watch my launch video here and get a peek inside…
About the Book
Creatrix is more than just a fancy name for a female artist. She is artist plus…artist plus priestess, artist plus healer, artist plus activist: her work has both sacred and worldly dimensions. She is an energy worker first and foremost, weaving energy into form, colour, words and sound, in order to transform herself and those her creations touch.
What does it mean to live a life in service to your creativity, and in direct connection to the creative source?
In this, her ninth book, Lucy H. Pearce, award-winning author of Burning Woman, Medicine Woman and The Rainbow Way shares…
- Powerful practical insight into all parts of The Creative Way.
- The unique challenges for women artists and writers.
- How to align with your authentic voice and The Work that calls you.
- Techniques for harnessing your powerful creative energy and dealing with fear, anxiety, creative blocks.
- How to earn your living creatively: building a social media platform, working sustainably, creating multiple income streams, networking when socially anxious…
- How our creativity can be our most potent transformational medicine.
With Creative Inquiries and Practices, this interactive book is written for all those that must create in order to live: for the Highly Creative, the Highly Sensitive, the multi-passionate, for those that shake when they share…
Soulful, serious-minded, irreverent and authentic, let Creatrix take you on a journey to the heart of your creative soul.
To be a creatrix is to dedicate oneself to the cycle of creativity – to embodying soul, through impregnation, gestation, birth, nurturing and death in a way that is not really understood in our culture. It is to consciously engage directly with the forces of the Universe on a daily basis. The creatrix gestates her own content and births it out: her art is an expression of her inner world and a reflection of what she has sensed in the outer world. Through this sacred birthing she is transformed, as are those who witness the process or its products. In this sense the act of creative expression is a sacred act of communion for the community.
A creatrix is not simply a performer or entertainer – though these are elements of what she does – she is a dedicated shaper of consciousness and energy, a culture weaver, a dreamer and midwife of new worlds. She is an asker of uncomfortable questions and a liver of taboos in a world that expects conformity. She is answerable to her own intuition and sense of authenticity, and The Work itself. She follows the call of her soul above the demands of the world. She knows herself more deeply and sees herself more clearly through The Work.
To make buying direct from as sweet as I can, everyone who pre-orders receives:
