In Chinese and Japanese legend the lowly carp spends its life trying to swim up the Yellow River. At the source of the river is a great roaring waterfall. If the koi were able to swim up that waterfall, it would be rewarded and transformed into a dragon. Thus, the koi is a symbol of personal advancement, perseverance, determination in the face of impossible obstacles, and inner strength.
Here at Dragon’s Gate Creative Journeys, we want to help you be the koi who transforms into a dragon of creativity! And we want it to be wholeheartedly fun for you.
We also love to assist the people who show up to dip a toe in the water. If you don’t feel ready for a writing workshop or creative expedition, please feel welcome to contact us with your thoughts and questions. This includes any fears that are currently hindering you from living the creative life that’s trapped inside of you.
