    Faith, Love, and Developing Trust in Ourselves in the Creative Process with Esther Maloney

    Faith, Love, and Developing Trust in Ourselves in the Creative Process with Esther Maloney

    This week on Creativity School, I’m talking to Esther Maloney, a multidisciplinary artist, educator and mama. She’s the creator of award winning films, an author, a visual artist, and the founding director of Illumine Media as well as a founding member of the Creative Sovereignty Lab. Esther also facilitates The Vitality Collective and Making Sessions, two 10-week, online workshops offered for those ready to make powerful shifts in their creative work.

    Esther’s work is rooted in the belief that our creative life is inseparable from our spiritual life, and she shares how to begin the process of developing trust in ourselves, our creative process, and the forces larger than us. We also discuss the inner voice beckoning creative people to listen, and how we can make space to hear it even when it can seem so hard to do this. Esther also speaks on the connection between nature and our creative practice and how our menstrual cycles and our creativity are deeply intertwined.

    Visibility and Impact Through Authentically Being Yourself with Saeng Douangdara

    Visibility and Impact Through Authentically Being Yourself with Saeng Douangdara

    How can you grow your visibility and impact through authentically being you and embracing all parts of yourself and the work you create?
    This week on Creativity School, I have an inspiring conversation with Saeng Douangdara, a popular content creator and personal chef who specializes in Lao cuisine.

    Saeng shares his journey of how he was born in a refugee camp in Southeast Asia after his parents fled Laos, to eventually working as a college counselor, to now creating storytelling videos that advocate, uplift, and center Lao cuisine. With over 700K followers and millions of views on social media, his work has been featured in numerous publications such as Delish, Buzzfeed, and the New York Times.
    We talk about the resistance Saeng faced as his visibility and platform grew, how to be authentic as you create meaningful work, and how he protects his mental health as he creates and shares online. Saeng also lets us in on what his creative process looks like, and his best tips on how to get started on TikTok.

    I believe there is a very strong relationship between creativity and spirituality and I’m excited to share this BONUS episode with you this week! It’s a conversation I had with my dear friend Sylvia Beatriz, an intuition coach and psychic medium.
    This week we chat all about how to know if you’re psychic (psst - we all are!), how to start learning this language of sensing, feeling and knowing beyond our 5 physical senses, and how our intuitive abilities can lead us to our most expansive and aligned life.

    Transform Your Triggers

    Transform Your Triggers

    This week on Creativity School, we’re talking about triggers! While triggers are extremely uncomfortable and can leave us feeling deflated and paralyzed, they’re ACTUALLY here to pinpoint where you have stuck energy and where you have the capacity to expand into your highest self. Learn how to use the things that trigger you as a way to know exactly where your limiting beliefs are, and bring these subconscious thoughts to the surface so you can expand and grow into your fullest and most authentic, creative being.

    Cultivating Creativity: Finding Your Own Unique Voice and Style

    Cultivating Creativity: Finding Your Own Unique Voice and Style

    Over the last 15 years of my career as a professional photographer, one of the compliments I’ve loved the most is when someone tells me they just *know* when a photo is mine.  It shows me that my work is recognizable and that I’ve been able to find my own unique voice as a creative.
    This week in our Cultivating Creativity Series, I’ll be sharing how to develop your own unique voice and style as a creator. Tune in for a deep dive on deconstructing the process of taking all your influences and inspirations, and turning them into something that is uniquely you (and WITHOUT copying others!)
