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.
