After years of struggling and soul-searching as a working artist, I knew that the way I was approaching my life wasn't working.
Life was living me, not the other way around.
Through a lot of trial and error, and some challenging self-examination, I finally got my life going on the path I truly wanted. So many others noticed a change in me, and wanted to know what I had done to become happy, grounded, and producing some of my best work yet!
After years of compiling resources, narrowing down questions, and combing through my emotional tool-box (as I call it), I finally came up with the series of important thought areas and corresponding questions and tasks that helped to guide me through. I know it will do the same for you!
Overture is an online course delivered through a private membership website. Each week, students receive an intro to the new important thought area, and receive an explanation of how I discovered the idea and implemented it in my own work. Then, they drill down and go through a series of 5 tasks for the week. They write their work down in a journal space of their choice - to be reflected on and built upon.
I’m also including an opportunity for ongoing comments and feedback for the students. It's a safe place to share thoughts, victories, hurdles and also a chance to hear from others, and me in person!
Why I made Overture... for you!
Honestly, at first I didn’t even know I was creating something - I just had to do something to help myself. After friends and colleagues asked me what had changed in me, I realized it was really all this work I’d done for myself. They were curious about how to implement these ideas in their own life, and as I explained my process to them, I realized that this work is SO missing in everything from schools, to C suites, and I felt uniquely equipped to talk about it, in my own way. So, I created Overture. I believe that every single person wants to lead the life they are meant to live here, and being in awareness is absolutely essential to getting there.
What can Overture do for you?
Overture is going to change your life, if you let it. Overture is the essential “Life 101”. During any point of life change or struggle, you will know how to turn to the work outlined in Overture to help guide your choices and direct your life with meaning and intention.
Perfect if you're...
Please pass if you're...
