Personalized Focus and Guidance for Your Creative Visions and Projects
If you’re a writer, or a woman carrying a creative dream within you and you’re feeling uninspired or stuck regarding how to move forward to make it tangibly real…
I’ve something to share with you, I’ve been where you are. I’ve felt lost, confused, and totally stressed out about where to turn to bring my inner creative ideas and longings to life. My angst and all the struggles I’ve gone through as a woman who writes and creates have taught me valuable lessons.
It’s now my heartfelt desire to share what I’ve learned with women who are traveling a winding path I’ve come to know very well. I share all this because I want to offer you hope, tools, and guidance to focus your intention, nourish your creative spirit, and inspire the fulfillment of your vision so you can begin to live it, touch it, and deliver its radiant fullness to fruition.
What is your creative calling?
Perhaps you’re an artist or craftswoman with visions and dreams of creating beauty to share with others. You may have all the materials, creativity, and ideas, yet, you’re longing for the spark to breathe life into your creation.
Perhaps you’re a woman who writes. You may have the seed of a book idea you’ve been carrying in your heart for a long time or you may be a journaler seeking new methods and practices for your writing process. Or are you a woman with wisdom you yearn to offer through workshops or retreats?
How do I begin to pull it all together?
Is this one of the many questions stopping you from stepping forward into the call for your life’s purpose?
Wherever you are on your creative path you may find yourself at a place where a creative companion’s supportive voice and listening heart could illuminate your journey with inspiration and direction.
Understanding and honoring the terrain of the creative spirit…
I’ve experienced all of the above as the frustrated writer, uninspired journaler, artist in need of direction, and craftswoman with too many ideas and not enough expertise to know how to begin.
My journey, like yours, is constantly evolving. Through all the twists and turns, the constant that has kept me moving forward (even after periods of inertia) has been my passion for beauty, authenticity, and service to others. I’ve been blessed time and again by countless teachers and mentors along the way. My passion has inspired me to offer a new depth of sharing of what I have learned through years of starts and stops, doubts and fears, successes and reboots.
Here’s what I’m offering to you…
I would like to pass along to you, all that I’ve grown to understand in the past twenty-five years pertaining to the emotional, spiritual, practical, technical, and even financial facets of being a creative woman. I would like to offer you the opportunity for mentored companionship as you begin or continue your creative journey.
It’s important to mention here that many times creative women feel shame regarding not completing what they’ve begun, or perhaps not even beginning a project due to fear, self-doubt, or paralyzing inertia. Please know that the foundation of our work together will always be shame free and rooted in the belief that all feelings along the way are valid as teaching tools. There’s no way to make a mistake or wrong turn. If things don’t work when one avenue is explored, it simply indicates the invitation is being presented to turn in another direction to seek a solution for the issue at hand.
The emphasis of creative mentoring and companionship is centered on the fulfillment of your desires for your creative journey whether your focus is writing, journaling and art-making. However, this form of creative mentoring is wholistic. Body, mind, and spirit all play specific roles in the process. Together we will find ways to enrich the totality of your creative journey while these benefits also spill wholeness and inspiration into your daily life.
What you receive through creative mentoring and companionship:
You are on your very own personal creative journey. You have all you need to bring your visions and projects to life and fruition. My role as your creative mentor and companion is to walk alongside you on the path. I carry a toolbox full of creative, spiritual, and practical tools. My role is to offer a suggested tool, resource, or inspiration according to your specific questions and needs. Here’s how it works…
- One hour phone or Skype sessions, one to one. Sessions may occur weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly according to your needs. This hour together is where you will have the opportunity to express your frustrations, ask questions, share your breakthroughs, receive guidance for the next step, learn spiritual and sacred practices to help you remain centered, celebrate your peak moments, and so much more.
- Free Access to the Book of Wonderment Course ($35 value).
- A relay of resources. Suggestions will be offered for books, creative programs, video tutorials, and creative materials to enrich your journey.
- Suggested sacred and spiritual practices including: journaling, rituals, prayers, and more to center your spirit for illumination of your sacred imagination.
- Detailed creative guidance and also practical guidance from establishing your workspace to self-publishing a book, how to plan a workshop or retreat, or how to take the first steps to create a website or blog.
- Dreamwork. You will be provided with journaling tools to increase your dream life and harvest guidance from your dreams.
- A preview of your creative projects via Skype or e-mail. If you desire, I will preview your work through a mirroring process to reflect to you what I notice. This is achieved constructively rather than critically or judgmentally. Mirroring is a gentle and supportive process that provides the opportunity and invitation for you to expand and explore your project from a new vantage point.
