Trust Your Why:
Your Creative Comfort Zone Needs You

with Heather Doyle Fraser and Cindy Ingram

Wednesday, July 24,
6:00–7:00 pm EDT

You are a creative person.

This is a fact.

But sometimes you forget that your inherent creative nature needs to be nurtured and cared for rather than managed and run with to-do lists and efficiencies.

Does this sound like you?

We are going to let you in on a secret—this sounds like us and everyone we have ever worked with. That’s why we’re here.

Most people will tell you that in order to be the creative you were meant to be you need to stretch outside your comfort zone.

 Stretch way beyond it.

Stretch until you think you might break.

This is where the magic happens, right?


We have a different approach.

We want you to get comfortable being in your comfort zone. This comfort zone is your creation zone.

This is where the magic happens.

We create with clarity when we are able to embrace a comfort zone that is available to all of us. It won’t look the same for all of us, but it is there. This doesn’t mean that we don’t experience discomfort, but that we have cultivated enough internal safeness to give space for our creative nature.

We are creating a space for you—for all of us—to not only remember and trust our creative natures but also hold our creativity with compassion and safeness. When you feel safe enough, creativity blossoms—in your creative projects, yes, and also in how you approach life.

The question is, how do we find this feeling of internal safeness?

How do we feel safe enough to create and trust our ideas for writing, for making art, for being the artist within us?

Join us on July 24, 2024 at 6pm ET/3pm PT for an experiential workshop to help you explore your creative nature:

“I believe in the power of the VOICE. Your voice, my voice, and our collective voice.

I live and breathe what I do — coach, write, publish books, teach, sing, perform, create, nurture — I do all of these things with gusto because they are all a part of me.

I want to see your fullness and help you experience what it is like to be seen and heard; and then, I want you to share that VOICE with the world.”

Cindy Ingram

“Art helps me get out of my head and into my body, into the present environment. It allows me to expand and recognize myself in a place that may have seemed forbidden, irresponsible, or unattainable.”

— Cindy Ingram
