Creativity is a passageway to safety, to sanity, to joy.

Creative practice is a coming home to self. It feels both intensely individual and deeply communal.

It is a giving and a receiving. It provides a space to make meaning, free from the pressure of having to define what it means.

Let me help you find the secret spots, the sliding doors, and the stowaway ideas.

You’re in the right place if...

  • You’ve ever uttered the words, “I’m just not a creative person.”
  • Your relationship status with creativity is “complicated” or currently non-existent.
  • You value ‘experiences’ over ‘things.’
  • You are curious about how to infuse more creativity into your corporate career.
  • You are eager to learn more about spirituality, wellness, writing, and interesting ‘’goings-on.”
  • You want to feel inspired, valued, and filled with endless possibility.

Hey! I’m Kristina - with a K.

Writer. Creativity midwife. Connector of dots.

Think of me as a docent helping you find your way back to your natural creative state: I have a knack for introducing new people into a scene, and a talent for integrating ideas and actions to deepen relationships with self, others, and the world at large. Basically, I AM your rose-colored glasses.

I spent almost two decades of my career in higher education as a teacher, consultant, and chair of creative events. I’ve learned from the best – from people like New York Times Best Selling Author Clarissa Pinkola Estes, National Best Selling Author Jennifer Pastiloff, Senior Director of NPR Music Lauren Onkey, and former President of Cuyahoga Community College’s Eastern Campus Dr. J. Michael Thomson. I’ve also been published in a wide range of publications, including Elephant Journal, Rebelle Society, Parents Magazine, and Amazon.

When I’m not busy writing, or hanging with my little, you’ll catch me exploring small town coffee shops, visiting international hot spots, and immersing myself in mystery, magic, and merry-making.

How to Live (and Write) Creatively

A self-paced 5-module course on the joys of self-exploration and expression

Everyone who thinks they are an artist is right. Let me take you on a journey through the creative process from ideation to revision. Each of these five modules contains inspiration, instruction, and application tips, but it goes far beyond the practice of writing; in fact, the essence of the course lies in self-exploration, and revelling in the deep knowing that you are an inherently creative being - an artist in your own right. Once you invite creativity into your work, your home, and your way of moving through the world, strange, beautiful new paths will appear before you.

This is your invitation to see where they lead.

The Sanctity of Silence Workshop

A 90-minute workshop for 10 to 20 people

Some of us (hand raised) find it extremely difficult to just shut up! But when we do, we find that silence actually has a lot to say - it just usually doesn’t get a whole lot of airtime in which to say it. Finding comfort in silence and abundance in absence is a cornerstone of creativity, and that’s what this workshop is all about. In this session, you’ll come to a new understanding of the sanctity of silence as you experience a silent walking meditation in nature, followed by some gentle yoga and an exercise in what it means to “hold space.”

Explore Your Story: A Word and Movement Workshop

A 2-hour session for 10 to 15 people

Our identities are wrapped up in stories – the ones we tell, create, rewrite, and revise - and there is power in claiming and sharing them. In this workshop, we will explore how yoga and writing mirror one another, and the meaning-making that can result from the practice of both. Through a creative writing exercise, we will honor the past, revel in our current realities, and manifest our dreams for the future. We’ll then complete a yoga sequence that focuses on unlocking our creativity and overcoming mental blocks, and reflect on the process.
