what is wanting to come through you?
to know, we must listen.
we must lean in.
we must allow the longing for what brings us alive
to be stronger than the fear of taking a risk.
and in that choice...
we let our Living Song through.
What would life feel like if you didn’t doubt your self, your creativity, your voice?
Who would you be, in your fullest expression?
What could you create if you knew that your inspiration was limitless? If you trusted the vision and sound coming through you? If you fully allowed your voice to be heard?
Everyone has doubt. Everyone has edges.
It’s not about overcoming our fears. It’s about getting really good at meeting them. And leaning IN.
In these changing times, we find ourselves at a crossroads. One path, leading toward the known, the comfortable, the safe, the past repeating itself. The other, a wild mystery, unknown, terrifying and beautiful and calling to our soul, the limitless possibility of creation wanting to speak, sing, shape itself through us.
In these times, with so much at stake for the planet and future generations, it has never been more crucial for us to listen to the call of our truth, our vision, our inner voice of guidance, connected to all life.
We are all creators. Every single one of us is brilliantly unique, and holds a prism of vision to the whole.
We do not heal as a collective until each of us leans in to our healing.
We do not co-create the radiant future of hope and possibility without each of us contributing our voice, our part.
What is wanting to come through you?
I am offering this now, at this time, because we need your VOICE, your SONG.
You hold a piece of the collective limitless possibilities to unfold, the potential for healing and harmony for the earth, humanity, and all creatures.
I am here to support your opening, your inner alchemy of transforming fears into healing, into beauty, into sound, into creative vision.
Through your own journey, you create a ripple that affects countless others.
Join me on this journey to lean in to the fears of being seen and heard, release self-judgment and limiting beliefs, and fully embody your most inspired and empowered expression, the utterly unique voice and creative power of YOU.
This is a container to meet with me monthly, live and in the moment, to dive deep into tools and practices for freeing and empowering your voice, opening wide the creative channels, and crafting songs and art with purpose and joy.
This is a support system to your journey, an ongoing pulse to support you in transforming fears into inspiration, a gentle accountability for you to continue feeding your creative soul and nurturing your unique and essential voice to come through, with the direct support and guidance of my years of experience and practice.
This is a resource, a space where you will have access to a growing library of tools, exercises, and practices to weave into your daily practice and powerfully support your journey of awakening your creative potential and liberating your voice and soul-work.
This is a community, a place to be received as you share your creative process, a welcoming family to hold you when you lean in to edges and fears, a forum to ask questions and receive feedback on works in progress, a place to connect with others on this journey.
This is a network of creative souls, warriors of the heart and weavers of song, leaders and visionaries opening up to their boundless potential, a space to connect and collaborate and weave creative visions with other like-minded souls, to co-create beauty in service to the earth and future generations. The possibilities are infinite, when we collaborate together.
This is a platform, a light to step into, a place to feel all the fright of being seen and heard, and lean in anyways. It is an opportunity to share your voice and creations with a community, a wide net of creative humans, with me, and occasionally (by consent) to be received across my platforms of over a hundred thousand beautiful souls.
And for those who take the full journey of the year with us… this is also an in-person singing and songwriting workshop retreat, a special one-time event next year, to sit in circle together and sing, to experience songcraft work with me live and in person, to hang out and dance and laugh and cry and play with inspired songweavers and leaders and visionary souls.
This is for you if you have always wanted to share your voice but have held it back in fear.
This is for you if your creative vision is pushing at you but doubt feels like a wall between you and your dreams.
This is for you if you feel a song inside, and the longing to let your voice be free is stronger than the fear of taking the risk.
