Rather than copy others (kryptonite), they will learn how to harness their unique creative gifts and build confidence, practice compassion, deal with bullies, and find the hero within. Customized for grades K – 4, 5 – 8, and high-school. Available as a keynote (45-75 minutes), half-day, full-day, or 8-week workshop.
10 Keys to Becoming a Creativity Rock Star
Do you long for a more creative, meaningful life? Do you wish your job filled you with passion? Do you crave a creative outlet after your workday ends? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you’re not alone. Although 87% of us believe that unleashing creativity is vital to our personal and professional lives, only 25% of us think of ourselves as creative. As children we instinctively know how to access inspiration; as adults, we can learn to do so again in wise and practical ways. This inspiring talk presents 10 keys to creativity — based on a unique blend of psychology, art, and histories of breakthrough products — to help you heighten your creative abilities and ignite innovation in your organization. Appropriate for individuals seeking personal and professional development, entrepreneurs, small businesses, large companies, and universities. Available as a keynote (45-75 minutes), half-day or full-day workshop.
Secrets to Boosting Health Through Creativity
Stress has become an epidemic in our fast-paced world and it’s adversely affecting our health. The good news is that just 20 minutes of creativity a day keeps the doctor away. Getting the creative juices flowing lowers anxiety and depression, boosts the immune system, and increases our lifespan. This empowering workshop/talk uses tools from cognitive psychology, art, and cutting-edge medical research to show you how to break through creative blocks and lead a healthier, happier, stress-free life. Appropriate for adults of all ages as well as teens (our most stressed-out demographic today). Available as a keynote (45-75 minutes), half-day or full-day workshop.
Let Your True Light Shine
In this workshop/talk you will learn how to accept yourself for who you are, warts and all, and truly shine. Whenever you try to be someone you’re not in order to get approval, you block yourself from your own light. What makes you different makes you special, even if it seems weird or wacky. By embracing what makes you distinct from others — including your “flaws” — you automatically excel at work and enrich your relationships, especially the one you have with yourself. Through exercises based on a unique blend of psychological research, motivational music, and passage meditation techniques, you will learn how to quiet your mind, bring hidden talents to the light, tame the inner critic, and thrive both personally and professionally. Appropriate for teens and adults of all ages, schools, universities, women’s groups, and spiritual and new thought communities. Available as a keynote (45-75 minutes), sermon, half-day or full-day workshop.
Reinvent Yourself: Create a Life of Purpose and Passion
This workshop/talk blends scientific, artistic, mythological, and cross-cultural perspectives, and the instructor’s personal experience with change, to show you how to leave the past behind and re-create yourself. You will learn how to confront and discard bad habits, negative thought patterns, addictions, and old belief systems that no longer serve you. You can also develop compassion and true forgiveness for those who have hurt you, allowing old wounds to heal. The workshop/talk will also share ways to manipulate the physical environment to catalyze your transformation. The workshop initiates a yearlong program of change and requires honesty, courage, and commitment. The rewards last a lifetime. Appropriate for individuals seeking personal and professional development, women’s groups, therapists, and retirement communities. Available as a keynote (45-75 minutes), half-day, full-day or two-day workshop.

Michelle’s is the best course I’ve ever taken anywhere! She is outstanding and made this a safe environment for all of us. My life has changed dramatically because of this course. It surpassed all of my expectations! Ever since her creativity class, I have been writing more songs than I ever dreamed of. I just found out that one of my songs got selected for a CD on “Women’s Stories.” I am absolutely thrilled about it because I know a lot of people submitted songs. Holly Near has a song on it! I have to thank Michelle for opening up this whole new world. I still think of her as that spark that got it all going!
I was going through some changes and looking for answers. Michelle was great. I would definitely take another course from her! I liked the combination of lecture, student participation, and exercises. There was nothing I didn’t like.
