This is for you if…
… you have one or more creative projects sitting on the back burner
… you long for more creative expression in your day to day life
… you have a big impossible dream you want to bring to life but have no idea how
… you are burned out and don’t know how to say no
… you get things done for other people but never make time for yourself
… you want to reconnect to your intuition and learn what YOU really want to do
… you don’t make time for creative work and it’s calling to you
What you get
You’ll meet with me six times between June 3 – Aug 27, 2019 for a for six customized, guided creative workout sessions. We’ll also do three group calls, two “work shares” to get constructive and gentle feedback on our work and an end of the summer showing of our work. By the end of the summer you will have…
… a thriving, nurturing creative practice that meets you where you are
… a healthy relationship with your trolls so they can’t shut you down
… creative momentum, a regular routine and a connection to your purpose
… support and celebration and encouragement of your failure — because you can’t make progress without failing, and that is hard to do
… a body of work – maybe a book, or a sketchbook full of drawings, or a 20 minute dance piece, or three new songs, or a powerpoint presentation

“What has stuck with me the most about working with Faith is that I am not alone. That there are other brave creatives also undertaking creative and magical journeys.”
“The practice of metaphorizing critical thoughts was creative, powerful and transformative. The Creative Magic Workout kept me going at a steady pace, like having a jogging partner, while my creative practice grew and I strengthened my connection to my inner voice. Faith infuses this work with her contagious creative enthusiasm, spontaneity and curiosity about the mysteries of life. She guides with non-judgment, humor and gentle support.”
“Thank you for a phenomenal creative and energetic experience!”
“I keep returning to the work I did with Faith in 2015 around failure. Every time I get stuck I always recall our work together. Faith’s creative exercises got me through it. In fact, I was working on my new show today, and I got stuck. I said to my collaborator, let’s create a shitty first draft, then throw it away. Of course, it’s the draft we stuck with! There’s so much power in that.”
“Helma, in her light electric blue sateen jumpsuit, makes solemn transitions from curious, to lost, quixotic, despairing, raging, tender, intellectual; all framed by the important idea that the quest, no matter how small or unknown, is at the heart of the living experience.” – Christa Morletti McIntyre, Oregon Arts Watch
“Think Samuel Beckett meets Mr. Rogers meets Dear Sugar.” – Megan Burbank, Portland Mercury
Who is leading this?
My name is Faith Helma, and I’m a creative guide, coach, performance artist and teacher. I have 20 years experience leading groups, teaching creative exercises and training artists to work through fear and inhabit their bodies with confidence.
I did this first with the theatre company I co-founded, Hand2Mouth, and in the multimedia genre-bending audience-immersive shows we created. In the last five years — having gone through my own radical transformation in the form of motherhood — I’ve transitioned to working creatively with people in a different way, using creative exercises to help them access their own creative power.
I am passionate about helping visionaries, artists and powerhouses (especially the ones who don’t realize how powerful they are) get out out of their own way so they can make the work they really want to make.
