I do what I do for very self-centered reasons.
When I discover something that works for me, I have this strange but dire urge to share it with others. I believe we learn best with compassionate support, humor, a focus on strengths and permission to be imperfect so that's how I present these discoveries.
I do what I do because I don't see anyone else doing what I'm doing the way I'm doing it and to be able to share something that seems so effortless and passionate is like a drug that I don't ever, ever, ever, ever want to come down from.
I teach Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching™ because I believe there are a lot of well-meaning systems and good intentioned people out there who are blocking individuals in pursuit of creative dreams because they don't apply essential truths about who we are as humans and what the creative process is as a spiritual — not intellectual system. This annoys me and I can't even explain why I should care so much — but I do. I want you to experience the creative joy I experience.
I teach Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching because I see it bring people alive with love not only for the creative process but for themselves just as they are and just as they are not.
I am done working at a conventional job where my creativity is used for something I do not believe in, is disregarded, or is limited. I am a creative liberation fighter... Okay, that's a little dramatic. But I do believe that simple steps can bring uncommon results.
Unbridled intuition, permission to be imperfect and non-linear, small steps, small questions, gentle-gracefilled structure, playful imagination and passion — these things create miracles.
