Discover Charming Your Muse

We each have a connection to the river of creativity that flows through the living world. However latent or distant it may seem, we all contain a spark of the same great fire that moves the stars. Our work as humans is to intentionally deepen that connection through devotion and play. Working with the creative force as a personal helper spirit can support us to bring our visions into form and tell our most authentic and soul-stirring stories. This course is an opportunity to learn the tools and rhythms that support your unique process and empower your creative voice. Come, let us practice together calling to the force that enlivens all, and give the Muse a perch within our homes and lives.

In this course, you will experience:

  • Discover a deeper alignment with your sense of contribution
  • Establish daily practice rhythms that support you
  • Learn what helps you get into flow state
  • Explore the balance between playfulness, ease, and discipline in sustainable art-making
  • Connect to your devotional blueprint
  • Learn about the Muse archetype across time
  • Work with the energies under creative blocks and self-doubt to access deeper revelations
  • Open to the ever-flowing wellspring of life that wants to be birthed through you into the world


“When I decided to start seeing Niema, my creative confidence was low and I knew my self-doubt and negative thoughts had the potential to shut me down and cause me to give up. Niema supported, affirmed and encouraged me and my creativity. She helped dispel some myths about creativity and her confidence and belief in me helped me love and believe in myself--my creative self. I wrote my first spontaneous song in a session with Niema.
Not only am I able to share a great story but I feel my ability to connect with other humans has also expanded. So much to learn and so many amazing stories to share, the world needs storytellers!”

Marta S.

“Let your creative and imaginative mind run freely; it will take you places you never dreamed of and provide breakthroughs that others once thought were impossible.”

Though fairy tales end after ten pages,
our lives do not.
We are multi-volume sets. In our lives,
even though one episode amounts to a crash and burn,
there is always another episode awaiting us and then another.
