Say Yes to Sequins, Say No to Self-Doubt!

If you saw Laura and Lexi at a conference, thanks for popping over to our home on the web.

We are honored to share Recalibrating the Creative Brain with you. It’s always a treat to spend time together.

Remember, awareness is the first step to mastery. Now that you have some awareness of your blocks, and tools to access your unique voice and talents, you are well on your way to being #UnstuckAF.

The Workshops

Get Unstuck: Recalibrating the Creative Brain

The creative brain is a miracle of well-oiled cerebral machinery. But what happens when it gets stuck? What happens when you get stuck and instead of hearing the voices of your characters, you hear only the endless chatter of your inner critic? Yes, but and she’s so much better than you are and ugh, you messed up again. Sound familiar?

What if we told you it’s possible to retrain those voices to work for, not against, your creativity? That it’s possible to discover what’s blocking you in reaching your highest potential in both your personal and professional life?

In this workshop, authors Alexandra Haughton and Laura von Holt will offer sound scientific evidence (and a few woo-woo insights) about this creative life. Using powerful techniques and practical tools from Laura’s training in the The CIJourney and from Alexandra’s study of mindfulness and self-compassion for creative types, you will leave with new and profound insights as to how to get out of your own way as well as a few simple exercises you can do anytime/anywhere—yes, even in the middle of your favorite café. You’ll have a better understanding of how to respond when the voices get you down and (best of all) a brain that’s primed for limitless creativity.

Since this is a super experiential workshop and will vary depending on participants and space, we want to make sure you have access to all the goods. Resources (including links to exercises, guided meditation recordings, bonus materials, and how to get #UNSTUCKAF with the Sparkle Squad) can be found at http://unstuck-af.com

Get Unstuck-er: A Seasoned Creative’s Guide to Getting Unstuck AF

This workshop is the perfect tuneup for those who attended the glitter- and-lovefest that is the Get Unstuck Workshop—or for the super confident yet still sometimes flailing creative being who thinks they have it all together…most of the time.

Using powerful techniques and practical tools from Laura’s training in the CIJourney, from Alexandra’s study of mindfulness and self-compassion for creative types, and from the years Laura and Lexi both spent rolling around on the floor pretending to be other people in drama school, you’ll leave this workshop ready to tackle any creative roadblock in your way.

This workshop will be highly interactive, but we promise not to make you roll around on the floor and pretend to be other people…unless you want to.
