COUNT ME IN!

Let me guess...

 

You get the feeling there is more depth to your expression but you have no idea how to access it.

You can be critical of yourself and your process. This takes the joy out of your expression and slows your development. You hyperfocus on how 'bad' your art is.

You're a late-comer to creativity or are self-taught and get a sense that there are some aspects of creativity that you have missing. Kind of like imposter-syndrome.

You are absolutely interested in understanding yourself more deeply and want to build your self-awareness in life, and in your art. 


You are a creative and find yourself stuck along the same spots in your process. It feels like no matter what you do, you're not moving the needle (ahem, and in life).

You want a nourishing and interesting experience, that isn't about hustle and productivity.

You want to create, whether that's writing, painting, knitting (whatever!) but you just don't start, because you don't know what to do. Either a drought of inspiration, or an overwhelm of ideas.

 

Resonate with some of these? Then read on.

 

THAT'S ME, I'M READY!

THAT'S ME, I'M READY!

This self-paced version of the course takes you through 6 specific stages that are 'must know' in your creative process, gifting you permission and understanding of what is happening when things get hard.

There is a rhyme and reason for it all.

 

The Life Cycle of a Creative Spark is a 5 week journey rich in universal principles found in creativity, psychotherapy and nature to free your creative spark.

 

You admire artists who can just pick up and pencil or paint brush and just. START.

The idea of being able to experiment, practice and develop your art HAPPILY is exciting to you.

Some artists seem to take their 'crappy art' in their stride. They might make a 'mistake' but move onto to the next thing lightly. You have no idea how they do it, but you want that too!

It almost looks effortless. 

 

spark embarks on a journey multiple times a day.
Sometimes it completes the journey, other times it gets stuck at different points in your inner world.
Sometimes, it gets stuck in the same place, every day, for years. 

When our inner spark or impulse gets stuck, we get stuck. 

We get frustrated, depressed, angry, numb, feel lost, unable to find a way out, or in.

Sometimes we even abandon our craft all together; and give up on believing life could be different. 

 

This course is a journey into the terrain of your soul,
and the Life Cycle of the Creative Spark is your map.

This journey is about remembering our own innate wisdom, natural intelligence and capacity for creating a life full of wonder.

and you might be wondering about me, and how this course came to be?

My name is Natalia, born to Polish parents and creative from birth (just like you). I'm now a well-seasoned gestalt therapist and Psychologist, and retreat and workshop facilitator.

My current obsession is the commonality found in creativity, therapy and nature; the core premise of this very course!
​ I had my own 'aha' moment when I realized what I was practicing in Gestalt psychotherapy was the same thing that was happening in nature, and was the same thing happening on my canvas. It was huge!

Writing about myself is a little weird, but I am quirky and humor loving, whilst also deeply thoughtful with an 'existential-crisis' just a step ahead of me, I love to gently cajole you into your free expression; it even has a name, a 'Nou nudge'.

The creative adventures I have been on are vast; solo exhibitions, t-shirt collaborations, CD cover art, print series, workshops and art retreats in Margaret River and India to name a few.

And now I get to fuse the transformational power of my two loves, therapy and art, in this course.

My greatest wish is that people open the door to their creative spark, and enjoy what it is to be a wonderfully creative human.

Are you starting to wonder what a 'Nou nudge' feels like? Good hehe.

Right. Let's get back to it!

I'M ALREADY SOLD - SIGN ME UP!

This is the self-facilitated version of the Life Cycle of a Creative Spark course. There are a few benefits of you driving your own participation. Most obviously, you have access to the same content for a more affordable investment. Secondly, you might also prefer to do it solo and at your own pace without the group calls.

The psychologist in me knows that you are more likely to do it if I drip feed it to you! So that's what I have done, and outside of that you can take it as slow as you like. The content will always be there for you.

You have the option of joining the exclusive Facebook group for creative folk who have participated in the Life Cycle of a Creative Spark, or attended my Art Camp Retreats. It's a sweet, casual space where we check in, share art, asks questions, and tell everyone when there is an art materials sale on in the area!

From the day of purchase you will receive an email each week sharing with you newly released content for that week.

Most people have a sensory preference, so I have offered an audio recording of the content (there are some lovely stories and meditations in there too) so you can snuggle up with a cuppa and be read to.

For the visual people who love colour and beauty, I have created a stunning book, full of original art work by moi.

It really is gorgeous and worth printing so you have a beautiful talisman for your creative journey.

 

Each weeks module contains a:

🎨 A welcome video

🎨 An audio recording of the weeks content

🎨 The relevant chapter from the gorgeous e-book

🎨 A simple painting class to get inspired

 

Each week I introduce you to a different part of the life cycle (essentially a little light theory) plus a whole bunch of invitations, exercises and reflections to make it personal to you; so you can deeply understand the life cycle in your own practice (and life).

Halfway through the course I felt like I was given a permission slip, then by the end I felt so empowered that I realised I never actually needed the permission, the creative spark was in me all along!

This course has opened me up to so many more parts within myself, I feel so much more expressive and free in what I allow as an artist.

You are a creative (or are arriving in your creative era for the very first time, tentatively calling yourself an artist) and you know there is something funky happening with your creativity, and you want to unfunk yourself.

You want to feel free to explore and adventure with your craft; you feel like there's more fun to be had, and you crave sinking into that juicy creative flow.

This course will teach you the foundations of the creative process (that no one told me at art class) that you need to know to trust in your own creativity.
P.S This course is for creatives, not just painters. This process is applicable to all creation and innovation. It would in fact be suitable for entrepreneurs too.
