A membership community built around healing our creative hearts and souls, shifting in to a place of accepting ourselves step by step, day by day.
If you're an artist, its for you.
If you're a creative, its for you.
If you feel fear around approaching something you used to love, its for you.
You have to have that tiny desire to pull yourself out of the melancholy blues stagnation, and we will help provide the map and the momentum. With a private community holding your hand and supporting you the whole time we know you’re in the right place.
I went to school for painting and art history, so I had been taught many skills to approach 'art' with. But, I hadn't been taught how to listen to my heart, how to create from a place of honesty, how to hear what I was attempting to say. This lack of understanding led me to feel 'incorrect', as though I was a fraud, or an impostor. I couldn't intellectually understand where everyone's beautiful ideas were coming from and it overwhelmed me.
During that time, I was going through some medical chaos and very painful things in the home, which led me to feel profoundly alone. I started to doubt my own brain, my soul. It became a special kind of hell, being on medicine I didn't need for diagnoses that weren't correct while enduring psychological trauma, it was an intense time. I didn't make work for years.
As a person with PTSD, I was often afraid and paralyzed. The fears consumed me in multiple ways but the most physical reactions? Those happened when I was confronted with a blank canvas. My most core fight or flight response was triggered when I would face my inability to create work.
So, I focused all my heart-wounds on creating, and silenced myself entirely. All of this to say,
I fully, bodily, physically, emotionally, mentally understand your fears around starting new things, creating new work, sharing your work, being seen or being assessed, working on your self or working alongside others, I understand.
I am inviting you to be a member inside The Intentionally Creative Collective, my signature program devoted to healing our creative hearts from our anxieties.
I want you to work alongside other beautiful souls that are shifting their fear to the backseat, and driving forward with a smile on their face. Inside, you’ll work through the blueprint I’ve built that encompasses the steps I took and continue to take in my creative healing journey. You’ll be able to work at your own pace to breathe life back in to your sails, while the resources inside keep multiplying.
Everyone’s journey will be completely unique but this is an overview of the framework we work through together. The best part is that it all inter-relates in an incredible cycle of self-discovery, and when you finish working through one it opens up so many amazing possibilities.
Unit One - Pain Points - the things that stop you from creating, the beginning of the soul searching and shifting away from creative paralysis.
Unit Two - Learning Yourself - learn to see the bravery you have inside you, rewire your brain so that you are constantly impressed at yourself. Its important.
Unit Three - Permission not Perfectionism - the empowering mindset shift to liberate your heart and soul from the things holding you back. Hint, its almost always perfectionism.
Unit Four - Inspiration not Comparison - the important and HUGE difference between the two, and why its necessary to learn your limits.
