“My aim as a teacher is to aid in the development of practical, dynamic, and confident people whose
work is a reflection of their creativity and willingness. I believe that people want to be challenged in order
to grow and expand. I also believe that in order to achieve the goals that creative people set for themselves,
they need to be mentored and encouraged. I feel that everyone is a creative being, whether you’re an actor,
painter, writer, singer, dancer, salesperson, computer programmer, proofreader, whatever. In everyone’s
heart is a connection to the desire to communicate something meaningful to the world.” -Van Brooks

The MASTERY has been a touchstone for people in all walks of life to move
forward in their creativity and their careers. In one weekend you’ll move
to the next level in your skills, passion, creativity, focus, and understanding
of what it takes to go out in the world and make things happen for yourself.
You’ll discover new ways to explore and express the uniqueness that makes
you special. More than just another weekend workshop, the MASTERY will give
you the tools you need for:

> A huge leap in confidence to take into your life, your relationships, and your art.
> Freeing yourself to be a more expressive person.
> Understanding how people see you the way they do.
> Becoming more creative, understanding how to create out of “nothing”.
> Stronger connection and better communication with others.
> Getting out of your head and dealing with the moment in ways you’ve never done.
> Understanding what’s unique about you that you don’t see.
> How to create your own inspiration.
> Constantly increasing your sense of joy about the whole process.
