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 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 and it can be accomplished in a gentle and enjoyable way.
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 don't 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.
This model is not just about working with creative people, it is also about creatively working with anyone who wants to move toward being more alive in a way that is who they are.
