I think you already know that the magic you seek lives in side you. The question is: how do you get at it? Like, how do you effectively and consistently cultivate the magic within and use it to create change in your life?
That's why I started the Creative Dream Circle in the summer of 2012... to explore this with a small group of my most devoted students.
These are BIG questions and I wanted to make space to explore the deep answers. And so, over the last 6 years I have shifted my business towards doing fewer one-off class and less one-on-one coaching in favour of putting more energy and resources into the Circle to create an ongoing container in which to learn, explore and grow.
I am currently (spring 2018) re-shaping the Creative Dream Circle once again, to make space for my new (and best!) ideas about how to really live from your magic. I'm calling it Creative Dream Alchemy: it's a set of principles and a growing library of practices that make it easier to stay in the process of doing the deep work of transformation.
I'm doing a free class to introduce the magic of Creative Dream Alchemy on May 1, 2018.
I invite you to read more and sign up for that right here.
After the free class on May 1 I'll be introducing the first in a series of Creative Dream Alchemy programs, which will all be housed in the Creative Dream Circle.
As I add these new programs to the Circle, I will be updating this page to better reflect the new energy, magic and possibility of the new Creative Dream Circle. AND, as I add these valuable new resources I will be changing the pricing structure.
Which means: if you join now, you can lock your membership in at the current rate ($199 US/year) and get all of the new programs that come out over the next year. Plus instant access to everything already in the Circle,
Everything below this line is a description of the "old" Creative Dream Circle. All of these classes and resources will still be accessible in the "new" Creative Dream Circle. I am just adding Creative Dream Alchemy to it, not taking anything away from it.
You want to make your dream real.
This might mean getting your book onto the NYT bestseller list or a simple creative life in a tiny house in the woods.
It could be about traveling around the world or enjoying the freedom of working from home in your PJs.
The external details don't matter.
What matters is that you want your life to feel expansive and free and most of all - true.
It's about finding + living the right dream for you - not shying away from the bigness of it but also not trying to make it be bigger than it is.
Being brave, taking that risk, and making it happen - creating your most authentic life, the one where you're not playing by other people's rules.
You want to live your dream because that's the most authentic way to be.
And that's why I made the Creative Dream Circle.
The Creative Dream Circle is a complete, expansive support system for growing your dreams, your self and your life - from the inside out.
Inside the Creative Dream Circle you get helpful tools, inspiring resources, in-depth classes and regular group coaching calls to keep you filled up on the path to building and living your authentic, sparkling life.
It’s not that you NEED the Creative Dream Circle - or anything else, for that matter.
You already have everything you need inside of you - your own infinite creative potential.
This isn't a simple three step process and I'm not going to promise that if you join then you'll wake up tomorrow 30 pounds thinner, 100k richer and with a smile permanently etched onto your face.
But I can promise that your dream is your dream for a reason.
Your dream is your soul calling you home- towards your real life. And I know that you're ready to answer that call.
The classes, resources and community inside the Creative Dream Circle are designed to hold you in the process of healing, transformation and soul growth - so you can dive deeper into your own inner pool of possibilities than you can do on your own.
Because we are stronger together. Creative communities nurture creative dreams.
You’ll discover inner resources and strengths you didn’t even know you had. Obstacles will shrink as your confidence grows.
Time and time again, when people join the Creative Dream Circle and start working with this unique approach to journaling and personal growth, they experience deep healing, dramatic shifts and the kinds of amazing personal insights that change everything.
It works like this because these things already live inside of you. The tools I share inside the Circle are just really good at drawing them out.
"I listened to you when you said that joining the circle would change things, would shift energy and would change me. But I don’t think I believed you.
I believe you now. Your classes have changed things, shifted energy and changed me: profoundly."
"I’ve actually accomplished and received more clarity in the 4 weeks I’ve been in the Creative Dream Circle than I have in the past 4 years going it alone."
Full curriculum of e-courses that connect you more deeply to your inner magic and draw it out into your outer life - videos, audios and workbooks that are ready to play, 24 hours a day.
Unique creative alchemy energy tools that help you shift your fear, re-align your energy, and connect you with your creative genius - your most expanded and powerful creative self.
A whole library packed with advanced creative dreaming resources like super in-depth videos, mini-classes and meditations that will leave you feeling ridiculously inspired and ideas that help you live more masterfully with your dreams.
Masterminds and online sharing circles - tons of support for you and your dreams. Plus group coaching calls where I’ll help you transform obstacles on the spot to get you through the rough spots on the path to your dreams.
*** If there is ever a topic you want to explore that is not already covered in the Circle - you just let me know! There's a whole section on our site just for asking me about anything you want to ask about. And if there is enough interest on a specific topic then we'll do a group call on that topic.***
"I’m one of those people who used to think that I didn’t have enough time or money to participate in the Creative Dream Circle.
I realize now that thinking I didn’t have enough time or money was just an excuse. It was kind of tied into not believing in my own self worth, like I shouldn’t spend the money or take time away from my kids to do this because it was silly and it wasn’t going to cause a change in my life so what’s the point.
That was just my inner critic talking, I realize now, and boy was my inner critic wrong!
These resources and the daily practice of connecting with my creativity has changed my life!
It has impacted my relationships and my outlook in such a positive profound way in such a short period of time that there is no way I would ever stop playing in the Creative Dream Circle."
Are you a racehorse galloping to dreamy victory or are moving at more of a snail's pace?
You can’t be a racehorse all the time and if you push yourself to move faster than is right for you that can get dangerous.
But you do need to maintain momentum if you want to make it to the end of the path.
I mean dreaming means stepping out of your comfort zone sometimes so if you’re always playing it safe then you’re actually holding back with your dreams.
Having trouble maintaining momentum is a common problem and the classes in the Circle can help you get moving swiftly towards your dream - not rushing, but moving purposefully and steadily and not letting obstacles get you down because you've got the support you need to keep going.
Are you stressed out and tired most of the time or are you a full-on Pollyanna tap dancing your way to your dream come true?
Deep joy is your birthright and your dreams will lead you towards it.
Of course feeling pressured to feel good is gross and doesn’t work anyway.
But dissolving the obstacles to dreaming also dissolves the obstacles to joy. The tools and classes in the Circle will help re-wire your energy patterns to let more of your natural inner delight shine out to light up your days.
Successful creative dreaming means you find that sweet spot where you’re not holding yourself back and you’re also not pressuring yourself to move faster or do anything that doesn’t feel right. It starts with being really honest with yourself about where you are now, and where you’d like to be.
You don't have to feel ready. Waiting to "feel ready" is just a procrastination technique anyway.
What if you just got started today?
It looks like magic. But it's not really magic, it's what happens naturally when you align with the power of your purpose and the sparkle of your soul.
That internal alignment builds a solid foundation for your dreams to come true in your outer world.
In other words: the magic already lives inside of you. What we do in the Creative Dream Circle helps to scruff off that crap that gets in the way.
"Andrea has helped me in so many ways. Her programs have been great tools for connecting to my inner voice of wisdom and insight, good shifts of perspective, and creative problem solving.
Not only that, but her special meditations have helped me envision my dreams in my life, visualize my self in a way that can support those dreams and see the bigger picture.
With that, I have seen doors open in my self that have in turn opened doors in reality and I have seen my dreams become real."
"Andrea is the magicks! She has helped me in so many ways that I’m not actually sure how to even begin to talk about it. She’s opened me up to worlds of creativity within me that I didn’t even think were still there. She’s shown me options that I didn’t know I had.
And she’s done all this in ways that always felt safe, welcoming, and do-able for me… even when I was afraid. What I love most about her work is that it’s just so accessible, to anyone, at any time."
If you don't know me yet I would suggest starting with my free class right here - that will tell you whether or not my work is a good fit for you and your dreams.
I’m in a pretty happy place with my dreams now - I mean I get to journal and draw and grow dreams for a living, which is exactly as awesome as it sounds.
But my path to get here has been long and winding and full of obstacles and speed bumps. And along the way I learned a lot! In the process of exploring my own potential so I could make my dreams real, I became an accredited spiritual teacher and counsellor, an energy healer and an intuitive life coach.
In 2005 (after dreaming of doing this for 10 years ) I turned the main floor of my home into a workshop space and I finally started leading creativity workshops.
In the years since, my work has grown and evolved and now all the magic of everything I have learned along the way lives online in The Creative Dream Circle.
The Creative Dream Circle is kind of overflowing with helpful and magical tools and resources.
You'll get instant access to everything listed here, plus a super-welcoming orientation package that helps you narrow in on exactly which tools are going to be the most helpful for you right now:
So you have a dream. Now what? The Creative Dream Incubator e-Course takes you by the hand and leads you through every step of the process.
(Contents: 6 playbooks, 21 videos, 6 guided meditations. Designed as a 6 week course but some people have taken more than 2 years to work through it super-thoroughly while changing their lives completely)
If you want to make your dream real you’re going to be have to brave in the face of the obstacles. Easier said than done, am I right?
The Un-Sticking Station actually literally leads you through the process of un-sticking the things that get stuck. (I use this almost every day and it saves my life every time)
(Contents: 2 Videos and 2 Playsheets that lead you through the Un-Sticking process, 1 60 minute audio class where I explain how it works in more detail, 3 60 minute recordings of coaching calls where you can listen to me coach people through the process)
Imagine never having to wonder what to do next, to bring your dream to life!
That’s the gift of the Creative Genius Planning Kit as it shows you how to plan from your deep intuitive genius (a much more magical version of a to-do list).
(Contents: Creative Genius Planning Process video with worksheets, recording of a 2 hour long coaching call I did on creative planning)
You would be free to pursue your dreams if only you had more money, right?
Actually, no. Waiting to have the money to pursue your dreams is a procrastination technique. The Creative With Money Kit shows you how to create a whole new relationship with money - so money can be your friend and ally in creating your dreamy new life.
(Contents: audio class, five playbooks, nine bonus videos)
A creative/spiritual retreat, a healing/transformation session and a magical playdate with your dream - all rolled into one four hour creative adventure.
If you feel disconnected from your dream this will re-connect you. Or if you have a big decision to make this will help you make the decision that best serves both you and your dream.
I use this whenever I am planning something new - it helps me plan from that deep connection where magic and miracles are possible.
(Contents: Audio class and playbook)
You’ve probably already tried making a vision board - take that a step further now by mapping out your dream vision in relation to where you are now.
This way you can explore the terrain you’ll need to travel in order to get to your dream! I use this process all the freaking time. It’s what helped me build my creative business and quit my day job, buy my dream loft, travel around the world, meet and marry my soulmate and live a happy and fulfilling life. It’s simple. It works. And it’s fun.
(Contents: audio class, two playbooks)
Discover the deep magic of creative journaling using transformative energy alchemy processes.
Learn how this unique approach to journaling can help you transcend obstacles, transform fears and leap tall buildings in a single bound.
You’ll get three of these classes:

Plus you’ll learn how to decode the message behind your mandala so you can soak up the insights, ideas and inspiration they’re sending your way.
(Contents: twenty-one mandala videos, each with one simple lesson, bonus video on intuitive art-making)
Soulful creative types make the worst business people. But don’t let that stop you.
We can actually do really well in business when we learn how to bring our creative essence to how we run the business. This is NOT some ridiculous "easy three steps to a million dollars" system, this is me sharing, at great length, how I grew my own business with journaling prompts, ideas and resources to help you on your path.
(Contents: 11 hours of in-depth videos with journaling prompts for exploring your business super-powers, my favourite resources + stories of how I built my business - which has been paying all of my bills since January 1, 2011.)
You will be lead on inner creative journeys where you’ll explore yourself, your intentions and deep magic of true inspiration.
Then you’ll gather up what you learn there and pour all that magic onto your deck of cards.
(Contents: 10 creative journey videos, 1 card-making video)
The aim of this class is to literally grow your depth and nurture your brilliance.
This is as advanced class where you take everything you learn in the other classes and use it to develop your own unique creative/spiritual practice to take the work deeper – and to support you in shining brighter.
(Contents: One year of short weekly lessons)
You could get lost in the hours and hours and hours of videos, interviews, mini-classes and group coaching calls on, literally, every topic there is related to creative dreaming.
Actually there is so much in the library that people did used to get lost - so I created map that leads you through the whole thing. You’ll enjoy exploring.
(Contents: Way too many to list all their names here - as of March 2017 there are 63 items in the library - many of them are hour+ long videos and audios)
It feels amazing to be a part of a worldwide community of brilliant creative people who are making the magic happen in their lives.
Whether you’re an introvert or an extravert we’ll offer our support and cheer you on. Every week you get an invitation to join the sharing circles - practice of reflecting on last week and looking ahead to next week. This is where you can read the “behind the scenes” of what’s happening for me as I keep growing and living with my dreams.
Peer Masterminds are when a group of people come together to support each other in their dreams and goals – it’s a way of playing together towards our dreams. Inside the Mastermind forum people are meeting daily to share their struggles and successes, cheer each other on and offer support.
People love these classes! This is what my students have to say:
"Hey, Andrea, I just wanted to write and let you know how amazing this program is being for me.
Crazy-awesome changes keep happening, and obstacles that I thought were surely blocks are just melting away like butter."
Jenny Ryan AKA Cranky Fibro Girl,
"Thank you Andrea for shining a beautiful sparkly light into the world! It glitters gurl!
I just started with the first playdate (tele-class) and I am shining bright from the inside and soaking in this vibrant dream that has been waiting for this dance for way too long.
Sparks flew from my art journal yesterday! Blessings to you love!"
I just wanted to write and say thank you thank you thank you for the Creative Dream Incubator e-Course.
It changed my life.
I was stuck in fear and resistance and getting buried under an ever expanding pile of self-loathing because of it. During the course everything shifted. I realized that my fear didn’t mean that my dream was “the wrong one” or that I wasn’t “good enough” or “brave enough” to go for it. I realized that my fear was just…fear.
And if I moved through it everything would get better. So I did. And it did!
And taking that first step shifted EVERYTHING else. I feel so different now than I did at the start of the CDI.
I see more magic everywhere. I’m handling setbacks with more calm and determination. I have more faith in my dream. Even my parents have noticed a difference!"
"This program is one of the best experiences of my journey yet and I know I will refer to the materials often. It was exactly what was needed!
The truth is that I return often to the resources from the healing circle to move forward during times of stuckness and waning faith in myself. It is awesome medicine for the psyche that is often at the mercy of the crummy ways of the world.
You have shared priceless tools to stay on track no matter what."
"Andrea’s courses are amazing, she is a beacon of light (super creative light) in this world.
I have no hesitation recommending her to anyone to wants to be more creative or make their dreams real."
But it's not just about the classes.
Each class can teach you new dream-growing skills, yes.
But the reason why I put the classes all together, and then added the Resource Library and Creative Community is because this kind of living, creative support system puts you into an atmosphere which truly nourishes you and your dreams.
But before we get to the nitty gritty here I want to make this super clear: You need to read through the Creative Dream Circle Policies + Guidelines before you join.
Your registration in the Circle signifies your agreement with the Policies + Guidelines, which are absolutely non-negotiable. ** Every member honouring the guidelines is how we create the lovely supportive atmosphere in the Circle **

Not ready for a full membership?
Starting in spring 2018 I'll be adding new options to join the Circle just for specific new programs. Details TBA.
Special bonus for 2018: The Year of Dreams. A year-long journaling kit for people with big dreams.
Cut + paste journaling prompts will come at you every week in 2018, specially to help you to:
- find clarity in those times when you’re not sure what to do next with your dreams
- connect more deeply with the places inside of you where magic, miracles and manifestation come from
- stay on track with your dreams all year
- enjoy the creative process of planning and building your dream path
Plus a Vision Kit, a Dream Plan Kit and ongoing support to stay in the process of moving towards your dream - all year long.
You know how some years you have this beautiful vision on Jan. 1 but end up totally off track by the middle of the year? That's the opposite of this.
Find out all about the Year of Dreams right here.
Plus You Also Get: Focus Pocus Creative Support Group
This is a live program we did in February 2018 - you get the materials so you can work through it in your own time. Includes:
- Four group coaching call recordings where we explore FOCUS
- Space to do your check-ins for 21 days as you work through the Focus Pocus process
- simple tools for maintaining focus (they'll be creative and playful of course)
- a process for getting back on track when you get off track (because pretending you're not going to get off track and not having a plan to get back on track is how most people fail)
I do not offer a money back guarantee for the Creative Dream Circle.
But I did create my free e-course Your Dream Is Waiting For You To Come True - so you can test the waters before deciding whether or not you're going to dive in deeper.
See, I want everyone in the group to really want to be there. So I want you to check in with your intuition about whether or not this feels right for you.
And if your intuition says yes, and you do join - then I want you to trust that.
Remember that your dream wants you to grow into your biggest and brightest self. That process is going to include facing some uncomfortable stuff along the way.
I don't want you to hit a rough spot and then give up. I want you to trust your intuitive yes that this is right for you.
I want you to keep going when it gets hard because that's where you're going to find the magic.
So I don't offer a money back guarantee because I don't want you to give up on your dreams. What I offer instead is my support.
The Circle website has a map that shows you how to find exactly what you need.
And there's a section in the Library called "For When Things Are Hard" with links to a whole bunch of helpful things for the hard situations you'll find on the path to your dream.
There's also a section called "Ask Andrea" where you can ask me anything!
I've put so much into the Circle to help you through the (unfortunately) inevitable rough spots on the path to your dream.
And you can always email me if you get stuck with something and I’ll send you a link to the class or tool that will help or offer some ideas for different ways to work with the tools.
When you join the Creative Dream Circle you’ll have me in your corner.
The success of all Circle members matters to me. Helping you make your dream real is my job and I take it seriously.
I promise that you can create significant and lasting change in your life.
You can't necessarily do it overnight - but you'll be amazed by how things can change when you do the work consistently, over time.
"This has been so amazing, soul nourishing and creatively life saving for me. I don’t say that lightly or just to be cute :) and not to be too dramatic about it ;)"
"Andrea has helped me to get clear on my big ‘why’ when it comes to my creative business.
She’s also helped me to understand how to tap into this magical flow that is available to me from the Universe ~ a flow that allows me to achieve my dreams with ease!"
"I want to tell you that Andrea’s work, if you commit to it, is magic.
Honestly Andrea’s understanding of the Alchemy of bringing magic into the world defies description but I go on at every opportunity about how awesome she is and I am big on telling the truth!"
I am an active participant in the Creative Dream Circle - that's where I share the "behind the scenes" of what's going on with me and my dreams.
I can't promise to respond to every single post, but I am reading the forums, cheering for you and popping in with advice/encouragement now and then.
Plus you can always ask me any questions you've got during our live coaching calls and classes.
After a decade of doing this work, one thing I know for sure is that we are stronger together. When dreamers unite - magic happens.
Can't wait to explore this with you,
PS: If you're wondering if you're ready for this, I want to assure you that you are ready. Once you join you will be supported in figuring out what you really want, opening up new possibilities for yourself and deciding how you want to get there - it's up to you if you want to take baby steps or giant leaps (I prefer baby steps myself)
Interested, but have a question first?
Send me an email, I'm happy to help answer any questions:
"I didn’t hesitate at all when it came to signing up for Andrea’s group. I knew from past experience with Andrea that this would be a wonderful investment for my time, money, and energy.
Andrea is great at helping me gain focus, reframe my thoughts, see things from a different perspective, and help me achieve my goals and dreams.
To be a part of her group, with others reaching for their creative and business dreams just as I’m doing, made perfect sense for me right from the start.
It’s hard for me to put into words the benefits I’ve already received from being part of the group.There’s support. Accountability.
A place to share with other wonderful souls what’s going on with my creativity, my business, my fears, my goals… and know I’ll be listened to and not judged, that I’ll receive advice if I ask for it, support if I ask for it, or simply to be heard and witnessed if that’s what I want and need.
Being part of this group is helping me to stay focused and on track… with the added bonus of laughter and sharings and support and idea-bouncing and creativity-sparking all along the way.
It’s a great community and I love being a part of it."
Ginger Mae White,
"This group is amazing and I am so grateful. It has changed my world.
I no longer feel isolated. It supports me in a way that challenges me to my greatness, and in a way that nothing else in my (extensive and great) network of friends and colleagues could. Just like you said in our first video (I re-listened to it from my iPhone when I was doing my cardio at the gym yesterday).
The videos are awesome! Inspiring and practical. You challenge me to deepen my spiritual trust and growth, and you provide practical tools and ideas to implement that help me ground my business in a creative and spiritual foundation.
You respond specifically to the needs of the group.
I listen to each video multiple times, and I get something really valuable and new from each time I listen. Thank YOU!!!!!
Andrea, you are an Alchemy Facilitator of Dreams."
