If creativity is a value of yours, you know that it can make every part of your existence better. When you don't get to it, you feel a kind of
spiritual constipation as well as free-floating crankiness. Growling is a side effect. There's no doubt getting into a creative flow can be elusive, frustrating, or seemingly impossible.
I've been there ... with the distractions, perfectionism, doubt, overwhelm, and resistance but I've also discovered ways to make it more of a priority in my life. It grounds me in my gifts and my relationship with myself couldn't be better. It helps to have a place to show up so the effort is made easier.
Last year, Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching Certification Training was
recognized by Life Coaching Magazine as the best creativity coaching training
available. In Talking Creativity, I'm sharing some of the most effective tools and
approaches you can use for yourself without paying to take the training .
If you’re like me, when you do get to your creative call, you wonder why you don’t do it more often. Even small creative gestures fortify our mental, physical and spiritual health.
Most of the people I work with know, that having the support of others and/or the structure of a class is one of the only ways to get to the process sometimes.

Applying of the unconventional creative tools that I have test-driven since 1997 with myself and the people I work with:
Using intuition, imagination, and instinct to effortless show up,
structure, guided experiences, and the magic of a group to
unleash intuition, instinct. And compassion as a conduit for the love that makes creativity a place of bliss and escape.
