Meetup - Finding Inspiration in Opposing Places  - June 10th 2019

With inspiration, we can transcend barriers, overcome challenges and launch ourselves into the lives we desire. Whether seeking a new job, new inspiration in an existing role or a new purpose in life, inspiration doesn’t have to be a once in a lifetime event. With focus and practice inspiration can be a lifelong companion.


In this session, inspired by Juan Geuer’s Carbon + Light exhibit at the OAG, we will explore the science of inspiration and how you can find and keep your personal muse.
