Create A Life You Love!

Are you a therapist feeling stifled in your practice, seeking new tools to reawaken your passion?

Are you an equine coach or equestrian specialist, looking for unique and creative activities to support your clients? 

Are you someone feeling ready for what’s next in their life and interested in a career that supports others, while also enlivening your life?

If your answer is yes to any or all of these questions, join me and a heART-centered herd of like-minded women, ready to blaze new trails and step out in the world as expressive arts coaches!

For our two intensive, in-person immersion retreats, we will gather under the sacred watch of beautiful Mount Sopris at Cedar Ridge Ranch, a working family farm and retreat center in Carbondale, Colorado.

In this stunning landscape, we’ll ReAwaken and ReWild our creative spirit, as expressive arts modalities, and our equine guides, support us in opening our hearts, deepening our intuitive knowing, acquiring new skills and making lifelong friends.

Three months of virtual gatherings and supervision will keep us connected and growing, as you take the tools you’ve learned, and apply them to your hometown tribe, your very own Creative Awakenings Pracitucm Group in your community.

WHAT MAKES THIS TRAINING UNIQUE?

Program Overview

The roots of the program are the process and practices of my book Creative Awakenings: Envisioning the Life of Your Dreams Through Art. This book has guided thousands of people to open to their creative truth and step into living BIG, BOLD, ADVENTUROUS lives, but the training is so much more than that!

The Creative Awakenings Equus-heART program, weaves the alchemy of creative process with the mystical wisdom of horses, offering you a dynamic life-changing experience. You will leave the program feeling uplifted in Spirit with a treasure chest of experiential tools to bring home to your clients and your life. This unique training will support you in BEcoming a creative leader in your field and in your life.

In the course of our four-month journey together, we will meet both in person and in the natural beauty of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, and online to learn, grow, laugh and transform.

WHO IS THIS TRAINING FOR?

Anyone interested in bringing expressive arts and experiential modalities into their life and work.

Our students come from diverse backgrounds and we love it that way!  They are leaders in their community, women seeking a new path for their life and work, professionals seeking new tools to awaken, excite, and support their clients, women ready to explore “what’s next,” women ready to deepen their relationship with themselves and others. True learning happens when there is a blend of life experience. Our students have joined us from as far away as the United Kingdom!

ABSOLUTELY NO PREVIOUS CREATIVE/ARTISTIC/EQUINE EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED OF REQUIRED! All we request is a willingness to show up with a beginners mind, an open heART, and a playful spirit.

ART RELATED FAQ

Do I need to be an artist to do this training?

Absolutely not! In fact, your willingness to dive in and ReConnect with your innate source of creativity will serve you in supporting others to do the same. Before I lead my classes, I share this Mantra “In this room, there is no judgment, all that is required is the space for curiosity, courage, and exploration…and the willingness to make a mess!” 

If I'm already an art teacher, an art therapist or teaching workshops and classes, is this training appropriate for me?

I believe that no matter how long you’ve been engaged with creative process, we can always learn something new. It’s why I consider myself a life-longer student. I love engaging with new ideas!

Cost of Supplies

Will the supplies I need at home and to lead my practicum group, be expensive? I try to be extremely moderate in my approach to the creative process. There will be a supply list provided with basic supplies and also recommendations if you want to continue to grow your creative treasure chest over time. I don’t believe we have to spend a ton of money to be support creative process. 

HORSE RELATED FAQ

Do I need to have experience with horses to commit to this training program?

Not at all, in fact, many of my clients and workshop participants have expressed prior negative experiences or fear of horses. With nurturing support and guidance, these same individuals have had powerful breakthroughs, through learning the language of Equus and how to relate to these sentient beings, as a true partner. The horses are my 4-legged partners and will support you as mentors and Spirit ally’s, in your journey to a confident, creative facilitator and leader.

Do I need my own herd or access to horses to become a facilitator?

No, you don’t need your own herd of horses to become a facilitator. The horses in the Creative Awakenings training program are my partners in supporting you to become a truly authentic, creative leader. A word of warning: Communing with a horse may be contagious!  If you are bitten by the Equus bug-and it’s likely you will be-I will share with you how you can partner with horse owners and facilities and weave this dynamic aspect into your own programming. 

Can I use my herd if I have one?

Of course!  If you are already a CERTIFIED Equine Coach or Psychotherapist, you’ll be given all the tools you need to weave the alchemy of creativity and the wisdom of the herd during your training.The only request is that you honor the tradition of the work and the training you have received. I request you acknowledge + credit the Creative Awakenings Facilitator Training.
