LET'S GET CREATIVE
Not a musician? Maybe you just like listening to music.
Not a "writer", persay, but you love to write?
Maybe you just like to paint for fun?
Struggling with taking yourself seriously as an amateur photographer?
Or maybe, you don't know what you like to do for fun... you just know that you need some.
You've come to the right place.
We all know that person who has been wanting to write a book for years now,
or that person who feels suffocated by work that isn't fulfilling,
or that person who has an artist brain and never honors it with play.
Maybe that’s you?
To say that these recent times have been trying and challenging to navigate for most of us would be an understatement. The slim silver lining is that many of us are starting to see what really "works" and what "doesn't work" in our lives. You may not yet know how to proceed, but you have definitely acknowledged that you can't continue as things are.
Good news! We have expanded our services to coach even "non-musicians" because joy and creativity are for everyone.
When someone brings up the idea of "creative coaching", you will most likely be met with your own inner resistance:
“What even is this?" "This is stupid.” "This is too 'crunchy' for me."
Maybe it sounds a bit abstract, but if this hit any nerve with you, I urge you to just try me.
You have been met with enough resistance in your life.
Don't let those thoughts be another block for you.
Those thoughts are to be expected because since we were children we have been conditioned to believe that any creative exploration is "fluff" on the outskirts of our 9-5 reality.
In our 1:1 series of weekly/biweekly exercises and explorations, you will:
- see that the above isn't true
- understand why we become blocked in the first place
- start telling others what you want
- begin to believe that you're an artist (yes, you!)
- perhaps discover a love for something that you hadn't tried before
- find what "you are here to do"
- finally start writing that damn novel !!!
And don't be surprised when these "fluffy" creative techniques start bleeding into the rest of your life. Most people even have a better understanding of anger and shame, and interpersonal skills, making it easier to navigate day by day in your day job.
"In case you needed someone to give you permission to be silly... Oh, and to enjoy opera.
This is my pre-practice ritual these days: BLAST some stuff that gets my mind and body going... after all, this aria says 'gioia' about 600 times.
