    Episode 1: Why Fight the Inner Critic?

    S1E1: Why Fight the Inner Critic?
    In today's episode, Jane shares her story with the Inner Critic - the voice in your head that criticizes all your creative freedom. As you listen to this and future Growing Creative episodes, you'll sense that the metaphor of growing plants is so accurate for creative growth because so much of the growth happens under the soil, down in the dirt. It can be messy. Roots have to grow deep down into deep places to enable the flourishing and blooming we all desire to see.

Choosing risky, defiant hope

I love Jane’s challenge for us to hold beauty and brokenness together to live a richer, more meaningful life. This podcast is a wonderful blend of creative inspiration, trauma healing, and an invitation to watch for beauty, even when it opens us to pain as well as joy.

Thoughts for the soul

I love Jane’s sensitivity to that which blocks our creativity, and the uniqueness of who we are each created to be that needs to come out. Thoughtful, gentle words and encouragement.
