I help Gifted and Creative Adults unblock pathways to creating their most meaningful lives.

This is a treasure chest for the gifted and creative, particularly ones who are realizing a new relationship with their spirituality. In my humble opinion, this is the amazing and awe-inspiring stuff that aligns with the gifted, creative path.
The creative personality can be dichotomous, sometimes an even split between introvert and extrovert, and balancing those aspects is conducive to a general state of well-being. But more common is the person whose personality is better defined as either introvert or extrovert.
To an extrovert, expression seems to fly out of every pore seamlessly, and the absence of an audience is a less effective work space. We all know them. The life of the party, the one first to jump up in front of a group, the one who stands out. They are magnetic, intoxicating, and, in the best of scenarios, walking their walk. To an introvert, merely observing and coexisting with an extrovert is either energizing or draining, depending on the introvert’s relationship with himself.
To an introvert, the creative process occurs in solitude. Because of this, in the best of circumstances, the space is nurturing, safe, and free from static. In it, the magic happens. In it, all is possible. It is that space of no one and nothing, the unfettered relationship between human and creation. This is the somewhat-elusive ideal.
