Co-working Space for Cultural Creatives

We cannot live in a world that is not our own, in a world that is interpreted for us by others. An interpreted world is not a home. Part of the terror is to take back our own listening, to use our own voice, to see our own light.” ~Hildegard of Bingen

 

You can’t force creatives into a box. If you try, they’ll no longer be creative. And no one will want your box. ~Ryan Lilly

 

 
An On-line Co-working Space For Women

 

Attn: Cultural Creatives: This is not a “program.” it is a space for women who want to create and who have something to express. This may come in the form of writing books and blogs, speaking on Facebook Live, Youtube and Podcasts, creating art, music, photography, dance with leadership in your home, communities, business and the world.

Women need safe spaces to have deep conversations and practice with each other. We need support. The individual coaching calls are a way for you to check in with me every month. We can talk about the projects you are working on or what is emerging in your life physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually. In every project, something in you is dying while something new is being birthed. It is the journey from caterpillar to butterfly.

 Depending on the energy in the group there will be creativity labs to talk about our projects, community calls for checking in, sacred sanctuary writing space for us to write together silently. Resources and tools are shared, as needed by the group. Tune into what you need and ask me or the group.

 

 

The Co-working Space is a “Feminine” Process within a “Masculine” Container. We all have masculine and feminine energy, a balance of Doing and Being. In this space, there are Zoom labs, structure and accountability you can access and utilize.

I am inviting you into the power of staying with the feminine process.  Use this space to tune into the feminine process of feelings, intuition, and creativity. Go deeper with your writing and creative self-expression. Follow the sensation. Connect with your soul and inner wisdom. Allow room for new ideas and solutions to be birthed. Begin with the desire that is stirring inside of you.

 

If what you want is to set a task and complete a writing or art project, you can do that here. (With fourteen books self-published on Amazon in ten years and facilitating ten projects with groups of women, I know how to get stuff done! I also know how to stay in the mystery and let ideas bubble up.)

 

Here is the intention:  Imagine that you are spending 5 months in an on-line community of creative people. Every day, a prompt is offered for breakfast. You read it and let it open your senses, like an appetizer. If you have a writing project, let it stir something about your writing. You decide where to place your attention next. Connect with your desire. Use the resources that are offered. The community calls for connection. The Zoom labs can be used to explore or process ideas, develop “workshops,” explore the next step in a writing project, accountability for finishing a project. Using Facebook Live as an ongoing Open Mic Night to read your words out loud to the group, whenever you want to. All of the tools are optional. You choose what you want to use to support your writing projects and life process. Everyone receives a monthly coaching call with me, if you want it.

 

What is your desire?

Do you have a writing project or a creative art project?

Do you want to write a book, start a blog, increase email communication?

If you have a project, where are you in the process? Do you have a deadline for completion or are you organically following the inspiration of a project that is evolving?

Do you want to use writing as a tool to process and explore something in your life?

Whatever the desire, the process is the same. In this 5 month writing container, you explore your thoughts, feelings, ideas and inspirations. It is a space to write and connect with other people who are writing.

 

Using inspiration from quotes by spiritual and business leaders and writers such as: Amanda Gorman, Ijeoma Iluo, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Amanda Palmer, Michaela Boehm, Martin Luther King, Jr, Cicely Tyson, SARK, Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Marianne Williamson, Jean Houston, Deepak Chopra, Elizabeth Gilbert, and many more, the daily prompt is a reflection of ideas to stir the pot.

The list of words for the prompt during this series will be inspiration from The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron as well as writing and creativity sources. I will be sharing ideas about Cultural Creatives and the journey of women who are authors and artists. There is a word for a weekly focus. Use the prompts as a starting point. If they don’t resonate with you don’t use them.
Set up a structure for your writing and creative expression. Share in the group. Ask for support.
A structure can mean that you buy a journal and set up a space in your home for writing every day. It could mean gathering art supplies and a space to play with self-expression. It could mean purchasing Scrivener and setting up a document for a book. It could mean looking at blog sites and making a decision to write a blog every day.
Tune in to what you need.
An on-line retreat with a community Zoom call for checking in, an hour of silence for writing and creating, an hour for sharing our words and art creations.

A secret Facebook group for connection and witnessing and inspiration from each other. Come in and out, as you please.

Private Coaching with Andrea: Four sessions on Zoom. One per month. Expires at the end of every month.

Zoom Creativity Labs: Offered throughout the 4 months based on the desire in the group. Topic discussions around social media, writing, blogging, publishing, and life!

Independent writing and an opportunity to connect in community for sharing and accountability.

Set an intention for this 5 months.

Use Facebook LIVE in the group for an open mic night experience once a week to read your writing to women in the community.

With a focused word for each week’s prompts, the intention is to stimulate your senses. To create a space for exploring and expanding. Writing and art bring up things that are hidden or that have not been spoken before. Embracing the shadow as an ally and teacher who is guiding you to fulfill your desires. Unravel from the old path and see what is true for you now. All of this will support your writing projects.
