What will happen to you as a result?img_3047

I can’t guarantee you a specific outcome, like you will write a book or climb a mountain. I respect you and the creative process enough to know that it doesn’t work that way. It’s not a formula or a paint by numbers kit. It’s much more exciting and unpredictable and powerful than that. And that can be frightening, because who knows what will happen.

But I can tell you this: when you take your creative journey seriously and start doing it for real, something will happen. 

So if you don’t want to shake up your life and  experience the feelings that come with growth and change, don’t sign up. But if this is calling to you and it’s what you want deep down: let’s spark some creative magic.

“There’s no such thing as creative people and non-creative people. There are only people who use their creativity and people who don’t.”  
– Brené Brown (from: to live a creative life)

Who is leading this?

“Coach Helma has an amazing gift for balancing firm and gentle facilitation and creating workshops that are both wildly funny and sincere.” 

I am Faith Helma and I am a creative guide. Sometimes I call myself a coach. I’m a theater artist schooled in the art of empathy and world building, only I have decided to turn my powers towards awakening the creative urge in all (or at least some) human beings. I am the creator and facilitator of these creative magic workouts.

I have over 15 years of experience working with groups and leading creative expeditions. I know how to build trust amongst strangers, make space for vulnerability and strength, and plan for the unexpected.

For years, I created plays from scratch with my theatre ensemble, led physical and vocal training, and taught workshops for actors, singers and theater creators.  I taught them how to fully use their bodies and voices, tap into their creative impulses and enter into that elusive state some call stage presence (and I call magic).

You might think creative expression comes easily to me, but let me assure you: every single brave thing I’ve done has been accompanied by terror and second guessing and a whole lot of mistakes. I haven’t been to grad school — but I like to say I have a PhD in Failure. I’ve got 15 years of experience creating from scratch, trying things out on my feet and learning things the hard way. (I’ve even got a dancing Ode to Failure manifesto you can watch here: Failure Revolution)

That’s why I’m so passionate about this. I want to see all of us (myself included) living courageous, creative and connected lives.
