Your Creative Genius, an eight-week class designed to help students overcome the most common mental blocks and expand creativity on all levels, will take place from 7:15 to 9:15 p.m. Wednesdays starting May 29 in the Peace Cottage at Unity Church of Clearwater, 2645 Nursery Road. Based on the teachings of Ernest Holmes, the class will be facilitated by the Rev. Marla Sanderson of the New Thought Center for Creative Living, who said, "Exploring our creativity is one of the most fun things we can do. Until we learn to do that, our lives can be a lot like everyone else's. Once we make that connection, the sky's the limit." Textbooks for the class are The Creative Mind and Success by Holmes and A Whack On the Side of the Head by Roger von Oech. There is no set fee; an offering for value received will be accepted.
