This began as an experiment a year ago. I wanted to write more. I'd taken on a creative project (a solo show!) not related to my work or business and it wasn't getting the attention it deserved. I was burnt out, dragging my meat suit from one to-do item to the next and needed a place to tend to my creative fire with spacious sweetness.
Over the years, I'd practiced getting into rooms with other writers to shut up and write. The results were incredible. I knew that if I hosted a space for other creatives to show up and create, together, we would get our butts in the chair and do the things that kept getting bumped.
This space has become far more than a co-working space. Magic is happening...
“I am SO grateful to have discovered you and feel so fortunate to have been a part of your Creative Caudron this fall. I'm inspired by the way you hold space, the reflections you offer, and the prompts you give. I've gotten so much out of each of the monthly meet-ups and found the retreat an incredible gift. And the other cauldron members! Everyone is so kind, supportive, and uplifting. I signed up for this group because I needed accountability support around showing up to write regularly, and that has been fantastic. What I was not expecting was how participating in this group field would connect me more deeply with my Creativity as a whole (and I do mean Creativity with a capital C; as in my ability to consciously create my life, as well as my creative projects).”

We show up on zoom. We share what we're working on. We set intentions. We call in the muse. We do the brave and risky work of heeding the creative spirit that wants to express itself through our gifts and talents.
We inspire each other. We cheer one another on. We work, side by side, solitarily on our projects, but never alone.
We call these sessions Co-Creating Sessions. It's where we shut down tabs, shut out the world, shut up the doubting inner critic and we create! In addition to Co-Creating Sessions, we meet monthly to gab, workshop, share and connect in our Monthly Meet-Ups. Also, a member favourite, every season there's a two-day Virtual Creator's Retreat which is a blend of working on our things, sharing our thing while helping ourselves and each other get out of our own way as it relates to creating our thing!
Monday through Thursday there are dedicated times, with space held to create. Join them all. Or commit to the days and times that work for your schedule, rhythm and the season you're in. Many previous participants have come to just one per week and say it's totally worth it.
We'll conjure the muse and get to work. We'll write. We'll make. We'll bear down and birth the darn thing.
We'll pay no mind to the perfectionist’s opinion of what’s coming through, we'll simply make room and get it out. It may be brilliant and burst forth like a sparkling piece of genius. It may be a flaming pile of incoherent nonsense. No matter. We’re showing up. Together.
We will gather! We will make!
Mondays and Wednesdays are two hour sessions where we will check in at the beginning and check out at the end. You will be guided through a short meditation to land in your work and invite in the muse!
The rest of the time, you'll be focused on your craft, distraction free!
Tuesdays and Thursdays are 90 minute silent writing/creating sessions. You'll be encouraged to share what you're focusing on in the zoom chat and then move straight into your work. No talking. No time wasted. Dive in, devoted. Fed by the field of goodness.
(Mondays, 90 minutes)
Part workshop. Part share & tell. Part coaching session.
All inspiration and connection.
Our meet-ups are an alive, interactive and generative space to clear creative cobwebs, burn blocks, cast away fears and those terrible little voices that will say anything to keep you from doing what you know you must. We’ll smoke out the shyest of work hiding in the corners. We’ll share what we’re working, and cheer each other on. There will be practices, prompts, Q+A and mini-coaching opportunities.
These meet-ups will be about connection and creativity. Connection with yourself and your work, connection with each other and connection with the muse.
Each season, we'll gather for a two day virtual retreat. These retreats will include time to replenish, to connect with the soul of your work, and time to create!
You'll receive pre-retreat guidance to truly create a retreat container from wherever you are and make the most of our time together.
Over the two days, we will have creativity and embodiment sessions, co-creating sessions to work on our art, and sessions for sharing, deepening and strengthening our creative field and bodies of work.

Hi! I’m Chela. I’m an entrepreneur, Integral Master Coach™, Master Certified Coach, writer, speaker, mother & disciple of nature.

I’m offering this space for you and for me. For us to do the creative work we’re currently called to, together. Sometimes we simply need a place, a container, a field of support to do the thing. I certainly need this. If you want a supportive, playful and inspiring place to create, I hope you’ll join me!
