The Centre for Creative Living is a non religious project established by St. Paul's Anglican Church, Almonte, to benefit the whole community. The purpose of this project is to awaken and nurture the natural ability inherent in everyone to live and work more creatively. To do this the CFCL draws upon the talents of people from the local community engaged in the arts to mentor practice circles in a creative, contemplative and caring way and to offer other activities such as retreats, workshops, yoga and other programs to help deepen this ability.

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.
Unless we are creators we are not fully alive. What do I mean by creators? Not only artists, whose acts of creation are the obvious ones of working with paint or clay or words. Creativity is a way of living life, no matter our vocation or how we earn our living. Creativity is not limited to the arts, or having some kind of important career.”
