enroll in this class
Full moons are rich with light that fill up an otherwise dark night sky. There's a magic quality about them that sparks the light within us. A full moon phase gives us the courage to bring our true voice to the forefront. It gives us the ability to believe in the power of our own authenticity, allowing it to inspire our creative process and illuminate new ideas.
It's a great time to connect with your creative purpose on a deeper level, looking at ways that it can be expressed through your creative projects and endeavors.
For many centuries, the full moon has inspired thousands of beautiful stories, songs, dances, paintings, and poems. Through its fullness and light, it has served as a muse in a variety of ways.
What is it about the full moon that stirs our innermost thoughts and inspires our deepest creativity? How can the energy of the full moon inspire your creative vision? How does it illuminate your creative process?
Using the metaphor of a full moon, this four-week class will include journaling prompts, creative exercises, and guided visualizations designed to help you connect with the wisdom of a full moon phase as you tap into the energy of three summer full moons and explore the creative works of others who have been inspired by our lunar goddess. We'll be creating a beautiful and sacred space that will illuminate your creative process, allowing new ideas to bubble to the surface.

Praise for Tina's Classes
- Tina Games is a warm and generous instructor. I learned so much in her course, Using the Gifts of Winter as a Source for Creative Exploration, in particular how to create a vision board and use it. This course helped launch me on a new path, one I've been wanting to go down for quite some time, and Tina has been a great guide. She is always encouraging and supportive, and she offers excellent suggestions and ideas. If you're looking to set goals, intentions, create a vision board, and set out on a new journey, this class is for you. Highly recommended! —Cyndi L., Riverton UT
- Tina Games' teaching coupled with the Muse book gave me the tools I need to develop my imagination. I now I have many resouces for continuing to tap into my creativity. Tina is very perceptive. Her comments and techniques helped guide me deeper into creative thinking. She went above and beyond to help me reach my "creative project" goal. I am grateful for her genuine interest. —Sue S., Cedar Falls IA

- I actually wasn't quite sure what the course would really be like, but I really enjoyed having the chance to journal on the topics Tina Games had and I liked connecting my ideas with the phases of the moon. The synchronicities were just amazing! —Mary C., Pine CO
