Kaizen-Muse Creative Coaching
Become a Certified Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach.
The small step method of Kaizen meets up with the
powerful creative principles of the Modern Day Muses'
intuitive/playful practicality in this 17-week
coaching training designed to teach students
how to be experts in busting through the overwhelm,
perfectionism and self-sabotage blocks
to creativity in any area of life.
Also experience tools that train the mind to see the world
with imagination and cultivate ideas from unsuspecting
sources for ingenuity. Or simply understand how to make it
easier to experience the pleasure of creating.
We coach anyone who wants to live or work with more
creativity in any area of their life.
Based on the work of Jill Badonsky, M.Ed. who has
been in creative wellness since 1985, with Robert Maurer,
UCLA Psychologist, International Workshop Leader, and author
of One Small Step Can Change Your Life The Kaizen Way.

"Forgive me for fawning, but writing for the writing club has turned out to be one of the nicest treats I give myself. Deadlines are apparently The Key for me so I wish there was a "Play writing Club" where every week a new chapter, scene, etc would have to be forthcoming. With of course some muse inspired prompt!" ~Cheri
Just have to say, I LOVE the writing group. Never could have guessed just how much I love it. Thank you for existing and creating, so we can, too :) ~P.R. Anderson
"Your fun prompts have the same effect as shaking a bottle of champagne...
I get all fizzed up and the words just burst out." Thank you! ~K
"Your prompts release the writing like sap from a
maple tree in spring. So much sweetness." ~ Linda

Your appreciation, inspiration and laughter fortifies me, but money helps keep the technology going and what's cool is that as you tithe to what inspires you - it all comes back.
Perhaps imagination is only intelligence having fun.

I have taken a lot of the Amherst Writers [classes] and did not
find it as useful as your suggestions, exercises,
and the solid
concept, for me, of each muse. As I said, I use every one of them
for different ways to write and teach.
Thanks for your ingenuity
and thanks for initiating this group so we can nourish each other
