Creative Living: Creative Practice

Flow Practice: Creative Flow Facebook Group Closing

It’s with great regret that I have to announce the disbandment of the Creative Flow Facebook Group, for now, at least. As those who attend regularly know, I’ve had a change in personal circumstances which led me to move our live practice from first thing in the morning to lunchtime. However, it’s not working out. Turns out my work commitments are too fluid and varied to allow me to be free at the same time, every day, once the day gets going.
