Creative Shadow Workshops


I offer imaginative workshops to get to know and honor the shadow selves we all possess, while loosening their protective influence on you. Take a journey of inner exploration and self discovery through a variety of experiences - in nature, meditation, artistically, with writing, etc. Discover your inner landscape of selves while playfully experiencing hands on activities. I will provide a safe container to connect you with your creative “genius”. Along the way you will  learn about the shadow voices that hold you back and no longer serve you.

You can create your life, the one you were born to live, instead of living the one dictated to you.





The Dark Heart Creative Workshop

What is the Dark Heart?

Within each of us is a shadowy place that feels scary or emotionally dark. Where dwell the parts of self that you have a tenuous relationship, or parts that take control and steer you towards sabotaging patterns in life. I call this place the Dark Heart. But within the shadows of the Dark Heart are also light and creative energy waiting to be released. 

When you explore your Dark Heart, you increase your awareness of all the voices you carry within so you can gain a deeper understanding of how they influence you. You begin to hear their messages with objectivity so you can practice balanced decision making. The treasures of the Dark Heart are not only dark, they can also enliven you with insights, imagination, and dreams. Life feels more playful, lighter, and fulfilling.

The Dark Heart says… Live your life, even the shadows!

“We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, that one thing against another creates… Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty.” Junichiro Tanizaki



Living from Your Well of Creativity

Our creative juices can get lost, layered over with distractions of technology, responsibilities, and the stresses of modern life. But the most stifling is hearing inner voices of self-judgement and self-criticism. How can you navigate these blockages? By playing and allowing yourself to explore your own, unique creative expression! Adults forget how to be playful, so in the Living from Your Well of Creativity workshop you'll get a chance, through exploration and play, to reconnect to your well of creativity by:

  • Savoring your senses

  • Playing with your Dark Heart

  • Dancing to the Rhythm of your Soul

  • Tapping into the messages of your muses to live from your well of creativity.

Hi. I'm Lisa

My work (and this site) is devoted to helping people live with more joy, ease, and freedom through workshops, private coaching, and writing to guide you toward creating a life you love.

Our society thrives on finding tangible answers which feeds the mind, but there is also value in paying attention to the wildness of nature - that of the world around us as well as our inner nature. “...what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
