The Creative Cauldron

A creator’s container to get to work and create The Thing.

Welcome to the place to dedicate your focus,

attention and joyful energy on life-giving creative projects!


Would you benefit from a reigniting or deepening of your creative energies?

Do you have something (or multi-somethings) you’re passionate about bringing out into the world, but the busyness of life and work keep sidelining your best intentions?

Do you create content for your business or professional practice and feel stress and pressure about getting it done? Does it feel like a chore you’re cramming in?

Do you KNOW that doing your creative work with greater consistency and devotion would make a radical difference in your life and life’s work?

If you feel a resounding yes, or even a hopeful whisper, the Creative Cauldron is bubbling, hot and waiting for you to dive in. 

This is where the art that’s brewing inside you gets tended into form. No more waiting. No more self flagellation. Come and do the thing. 

The Creative Cauldron is an ongoing work party. It’s a container and co-created field to prioritize the writing or creative works that have chosen YOU to make them. 

Your project wants to manifest.
It is begging to be born.
Even (maybe especially) if you don’t identify as an artist, you are a Creative Being. 

Just imagine what you could create week after week, month after month while being held in a space exclusively dedicated to your creative work.

How the Creative Cauldron started: 

This began as an experiment a year ago. I wanted to write more. I’d taken on a creative project (a solo show!) not related to my work or business and it wasn’t getting the attention it deserved. I was burnt out, dragging my meat suit from one to-do item to the next and needed a place to tend to my creative fire with spacious sweetness.

Over the years, I’d practiced getting into rooms with other writers to shut up and write. The results were incredible. I knew that if I hosted a space for other creatives to show up and create, together, we would get our butts in the chair and do the things that kept getting bumped.

This space has become far more than a co-working space. Magic is happening…

We’re feeding and are fed by a field of creative potency.

How it works:

We show up on zoom. We share what we’re working on. We set intentions. We call in the muse. We do the brave and risky work of heeding the creative spirit that wants to express itself through our gifts and talents.

We inspire each other. We cheer one another on. We work, side by side, solitarily on our projects, but never alone. 

We call these sessions Co-Creating Sessions. It’s where we shut down tabs, shut out the world, shut up the doubting inner critic and we create! In addition to Co-Creating Sessions, we meet monthly to gab, workshop, share and connect in our Monthly Meet-Ups. Also, a member favourite, every season there’s a two-day Virtual Creator’s Retreat which is a blend of working on our things, sharing our thing while helping ourselves and each other get out of our own way as it relates to creating our thing!

Join other dedicated creatives and make some sweet traction on your thing!
You’ll be delighted by the magic of collective support. Relax knowing you have the space and place to work and wrestle with your creative projects.

What’s Included:

  • Weekly Co-Creating Sessions! (Four every week!)
  • Monthly Virtual Meet-Ups!
  • Seasonal Virtual Retreats!
Weekly Co-Creating Sessions (Four of them!)

Monday through Thursday there are dedicated times, with space held to create. Join them all. Or commit to the days and times that work for your schedule, rhythm and the season you’re in. Many previous participants have come to just one per week and say it’s totally worth it.  

We’ll conjure the muse and get to work. We’ll write. We’ll make. We’ll bear down and birth the darn thing.

We’ll pay no mind to the perfectionist’s opinion of what’s coming through, we’ll simply make room and get it out. It may be brilliant and burst forth like a sparkling piece of genius. It may be a flaming pile of incoherent nonsense. No matter. We’re showing up. Together.

We will gather! We will make! 

Mondays and Wednesdays  are two hour sessions where we will check in at the beginning and check out at the end. You will be guided through a short meditation to land in your work and invite in the muse!

The rest of the time, you’ll be focused on your craft, distraction free!

Tuesdays and Thursdays  are 90 minute silent writing/creating sessions. You’ll be encouraged to share what you’re focusing on in the zoom chat and then move straight into your work. No talking. No time wasted. Dive in, devoted. Fed by the field of goodness. 

Monthly Virtual Meet-Ups

(Mondays, 90 minutes)

Part workshop. Part share & tell.  Part coaching session.
All inspiration and connection.  

Our meet-ups are an alive, interactive and generative space to clear creative cobwebs, burn blocks, cast away fears and those terrible little voices that will say anything to keep you from doing what you know you must.  We’ll smoke out the shyest of work hiding in the corners.  We’ll share what we’re working, and cheer each other on. There will be practices, prompts, Q+A and mini-coaching opportunities.

These meet-ups will be about connection and creativity. Connection with yourself and your work, connection with each other and connection with the muse.

Seasonal Virtual Retreats

Each season, we’ll gather for a two day virtual retreat. These retreats will include time to replenish, to connect with the soul of your work, and time to create!

You’ll receive pre-retreat guidance to truly create a retreat container from wherever you are and make the most of our time together. 

Over the two days, we will have creativity and embodiment sessions, co-creating sessions to work on our art, and sessions for sharing, deepening and strengthening our creative field and bodies of work. 

  • “I am SO grateful to have discovered you and feel so fortunate to have been a part of your Creative Caudron this fall. I'm inspired by the way you hold space, the reflections you offer, and the prompts you give. I've gotten so much out of each of the monthly meet-ups and found the retreat an incredible gift. And the other cauldron members! Everyone is so kind, supportive, and uplifting. I signed up for this group because I needed accountability support around showing up to write regularly, and that has been fantastic. What I was not expecting was how participating in this group field would connect me more deeply with my Creativity as a whole (and I do mean Creativity with a capital C; as in my ability to consciously create my life, as well as my creative projects).”

Are you called to the Creative Cauldron?

This program is for you if…


You know the power of having a place to show up and work on your thing. While utterly perplexing and somewhat embarrassing, you just don’t get your butt in the chair as consistently as you want to when left to your own devices. Having a set day and time when you know others are showing up for their art and work helps you to do the same. 

Your creative works feels like a big, slippery fish. You’ve been trying to catch and wrangle that beast but time keeps slipping it away. It’s going to start to stink. You want help to catch, filet, fry and feast. Or if that metaphor grosses you out, maybe you want to wrangle and free that fish!

You’re tired of writing or making alone. You realize that what you’re in is largely a solo mission, and yet you want to be in a field of other creatives, nourished and supported by a shared container and experience. Willpower is an exhaustible resource. Showing up for yourself, with and when others are showing up for themselves, is regenerative.

You have to do it anyway and wish it didn’t feel like a chore. You create some kind of content (or need to!) for your work or business and you just feel so crappy about it! You want it to feel joyful or pleasurable, but it feels like a productivity grind. You’d like to make the leap into content creation actually feeling creatively satisfying and a place to express your talents and values. 

You’re embarking on something that feels edgy or new and you’re hearing those totally unhelpful voices saying things like: “Who are you to do this?” “You’re too old, or too young, or too (insert diminishing self-identity).” “If you prioritize your creativity, you won’t be able to pay your bills or feed your family and everything will fall apart and it will be all your fault and everyone will leave you and you’ll be all alone forever. Also, your art sucks.” This is normal. And those voices suck, not us. Our impulse to create is divine.

You’re determined not to die with this living inside you. You do not want to walk toward the light when it’s your time and hear womp womp. You don’t want to put off what your Soul wants to create. Maybe it feels like big, legacy work, maybe it’s just a whisper of knowing. Whatever it is, you can feel anxiety rise at the thought of not giving this the devotion it deserves.

You want to get to work. You’re not looking for a course or content to take in. You don’t want to learn about or talk about doing the work. You want to do the work. Just like the hardest part of doing yoga is getting on the mat, the hardest part of doing your creative work is getting to it. Let’s get to it! Get into the Cauldron!

Summer Session begins in July!

Marvel at what a full season of dedicated making will do for your energy and self-regard.
