A guided online course in self / life / creative / hero transformation
The Creative Magic Workout is a 9-week online group course dedicated to awakening your creative power. Join a band of brave seekers as we make space and time for our creative expression, and feel the energy and capability and possibility spring forth from within.
What can happen in your life when you’re unblocked and unstuck? What can happen when you feel confident, curious and full of energy? All kinds of things: you can write the book you’ve been meaning to write. You can plan the wedding that’s been filling you with anxiety. You can make the show you’ve been dreaming about for years. You can take a vacation. You can stand up to your boss. You can become your own boss.
Together, we will craft rituals, seek grails, charm trolls, summon champions and bring our wild and precious visions to life. You’ve got the power. Let’s practice locating it, feeling it and using it.
- Week 1: CREATIVE ZONE // make space and time for magic to appear
- Week 2: RITUAL // make it easy to get into the zone
- Week 3: GRAIL // practice wanting what we want and drawing it near
- Week 4: TROLLS // make friends with the voices trying to shut us down
- Week 5: CHAMPIONS // summon the voices who urge us onward
- Week 6: THING POWER // evidence of our magic imagination in the material world
- Week 7: SPELLCASTING // cast our imaginations into the past and future
- Week 8: THE IMPOSSIBLE // relish mistakes, failure and doing what we cannot do
- Week 9: HERO STORY // lift up others as we celebrate ourselves

Are you ready? Let’s do this.
When you practice acting like you’re powerful, you start to feel powerful. When you practice questioning your thoughts, your thoughts change. When your thoughts change, the world around you changes. When the world around you changes, you realize how powerful you really are.
This is not the same as positive thinking (which I am not a fan of). This is not pretending that bad things don’t happen or that you can grit your teeth and ignore pain and it will go away.
This is using your innate human ability to IMAGINE as a vehicle for growth. This is using your creative brain to envision and embody change. When we practice changing, we invite it in.
Change is a creative act. It is a radical, transgressive act. It’s a kind of magic and we are going to WORK. IT. OUT.
Thank you for a phenomenal creative and energetic experience!
