Creative Dreaming is about navigating that space in between where you are and where you know you can be.
This is a complex, multi-dimensional growth process that includes:
- connecting with your inner gifts and finding ways to bring them to life in the outer world
- bringing healing and transformation to your fears, self-doubt, limiting beliefs and un-helpful patterns
- holding inner space for the new you to emerge
- creating outer space for your dream in your life
Actually living from your magic is not for the faint of heart.
If you've got a dream that you're excited about but every time you try to figure out how to make it real you just end up falling flat on your face - you're in the right place.
As a creative person, you're a natural visionary. You can see your own potential!
But - this is where it starts to get tricky - your potential will always be bigger than you are, because the more you grow the more your potential grows.
And truly soul-powered growth rarely happens the way our logic-loving minds think it should.
So often those "falling flat on your face moments" are actually growth opportunities. But it's so hard to recognize that in the movement!
I always joke about how there is no simple 3 step system for this work, but if there was I'd be the first in line to buy it.
If you can hear your dream calling that means: shit is getting real.
We like to think of following a dream as traipsing through a field of daisies with your trusty unicorn at your side sprinkling magic everywhere... but the actual day-to-day work of making a dream real is far from idyllic.
It means facing your inner demons, sitting with your insecurities, making hard choices and dealing with your external challenges head on.
It's hard. It's annoying sometimes. It will push you to your limits.
It's also the greatest work you will ever do because if you can nail the inner work of growing towards your dream - then it becomes MUCH easier to make space for the Outer Work: like making your art and sharing your gifts with the world.
The Creative Dream Circle is here to help you navigate this path.
Some of our members are self-employed artists, coaches, teachers and healers. Some are happy working in day jobs. Some know exactly what their wildest dreams are and some are still figuring that out.
We've got members of all ages from all around the world.
If you resonate with what I'm talking about here, you'll fit right in.
It's pretty amazing to be in a community of such open-minded, big-hearted dreamers. Together, we hold space for exploring the BIG MAGIC of growing into your dream.
This is where we do the deep work of growing into our potential.
The reason why I don't offer most of my courses individually is because of how multi-faced the journey is, often what you think you need isn't what you really need.
Often people join the Circle to work on one particular obstacle which feels like this Big Impossible Thing That Will Always Hold Them Back. But after a short time in the Circle they find this obstacle is dissolving and they're moving on to other things.
No matter where your journey takes you - I've got you covered.
I created the Creative Dream Circle to put all of my courses, coaching and resources together in one place so that you'll find the support you need to matter what kinds of twists and turns your encounter on the path to your dream.

New for 2019: Coaching Groups!
In 2019 I'll be running regular coaching groups inside the Creative Dream Circle. These are opportunities to dive deeper into an issue with a group of like-minded kindred spirits.
You'll be able to sign up for each coaching group individually for $99 USD - which will give you full access to everything in the Creative Dream Circle for 30 days. Or, if you join the Circle for a year you'll get all of the groups included in your annual membership.
The Creative Dream Circle's mission is to help you grow into the brightest + dreamiest version of yourself, living your brightest + dreamiest life.
The Creative Dream Circle started in the summer of 2012 with a full curriculum of e-courses for growing your dreams, shrinking your fears and activating the magic within.
In the years since, it has grown into a deep and nourishing community with support and resources for diving deep into the work of aligning your outer life with your inner truth.
That's right! The Creative Dream Circle is six years old and getting better every year.
These are my favourite parts of the Circle:
- Daily Magic Sharing Circle (new posts from me, every day Monday-Friday) where I share how I'm using the practices in the Circle to work with my dreams, and everyone is invited to join in. Plus a private forum for connecting with other dreamers for brainstorming, feedback and support. Community. Encouragement.
- The "Ask Andrea" section of the forum where you can ask me anything plus regular group coaching calls where we can dive in deeper. Support. Guidance.
- The Un-Sticking Station, a practice that transforms fears into fuel for your path. You get several hours of coaching calls where you can hear me talk people through this practice, and I share my on-going stories on the site as I continue to work with the Un-Sticking Station. Healing. Transformation. Miracles.
The #1 complaint I used to get about the Circle is that there was just TOO MUCH stuff so people couldn't always find what they needed.
Especially if you're having an Inner Critic Attack or you're super stuck with something - you don't want to wade through stuff.
You want to find the thing that's going to help PRONTO.
So I created a map! This is what it looks like:
Each of these buttons has it's own section in the Circle.
On those pages I give you some insights + ideas about that particular situation, tips for how to approach it and then a list of all the different classes and tools in the Circle and how to use them specifically to help your situation.
It's like having a Creative Dream Coach On Demand, 24/7.
That last button, that says "My Question Is Not Listed Here" leads to the "Ask Andrea" section of the forum so you can ask me directly. If you're in a situation that other dreamers are likely to face - I'll make a new map section for you. If you're in a more unique situation, I'll just respond to you in directly in the forum. Either way I've got your back.
I spent a lot of years filling the Creative Dream Circle with classes and resources. Now I focus on helping the members in the Circle make the best use of those resources.The Creative Dream Circle is MY dream come true, I am very grateful for it and I work hard to keep supporting the Circle in being all it can be.
The Big Mother List of classes and resources that are included in the Creative Dream Circle:
This is an overwhelming list!
You definitely don't need to do all the classes to get your money's worth or to get what you need to move forward with your dream. Again - the map will help you narrow in on what will be most helpful to you.
In my free class, Your Dream Is Waiting For You To Come True, I explain how Creative Dream Alchemy works and at the end I talk about how I am building a library of Creative Dream Alchemy practices.
These are deeply transformative energy alchemy processes for making the magic happen - like exactly what you need, exactly when you need it.
The Library of Creative Dream Alchemy teaches you how to harness the full potential of your creative power - your power to create what you want in your world. I am not talking about making vision boards or positive thinking exercises, this is the deep work of inner transformation and growing into your True Self.
When you are plugged into the magic of your True Self, it gets easier to dream.
This is partly because it means you're plugged into your inner power source and partly because it aligns you with your actual purpose and authenticity.
So I am not promising you'll make 6 figures, loose 50 pounds or get 100,000 twitter followers. I'm promising you'll move towards a life that is actually true and authentic for you.
The Library of Creative Dream Alchemy gives you the tools for that journey.
You know how I talk about the inner work being a miracle generator? This is where we do that work - the library is like the workshop for actually DOING Creative Dream Alchemy.
I use these tools every day and I can't wait to share them with you.
And that special magic that comes from being a part of a group of creative kindred spirit dreamers.
I write every day (Monday-Friday) on our private site to share the behind-the-scenes stories of how I'm working with my dreams. I talk about which tools I'm using, how I'm using the and what I'm learning.
These are usually pretty short posts - some days everything kind of sucks, some days are pure magic. But when you read these little bits from my own Dream Story, day after day, they actually invite you deeper into your own unfolding process of working with your dream.
And, every day Circle members gather in the comments section of these posts to share what they're doing with their dreams. It's so amazing to be able to share our journeys in this way. We learn so much from each other, we inspire each other, we support each other.
All of this happens on our private website - I know no one wants to share this vulnerable stuff on Facebook. It's such a gift to be able to share our stories and get daily support from people who "get it".
We truly are stronger together.
Here's The Fine Print: 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 **
Membership in the Creative Dream Circle is $363 (US) per year.
There are two ways to join:
- You can join for one year for $363 and make no additional payments. Your membership ends 1 year from your start date.
- You can sign up for a recurring subscription. This means you would be making the payment every year, until you choose to cancel your membership. You get 2 reminder emails before your payment goes through, and there's a video where I show you exactly how to cancel your payment.
When you sign up for the subscription, you are "locked in" at the current price. So even when the price goes up (the Circle has been running since 2012, yes of course the price increases periodically) you'll keep your payments the same. If you sign up for one year only, you are always welcome back, but it would be at the most current fee.
Not ready to commit for a whole year?
There is a way to join for just a month! With Project Miracle.
Project Miracle is a 30 day creative ceremony and support system for going deep into the creative process of miracle-making. It comes with 35 days access to the Creative Dream Circle. It costs $99 US, and at the end of the 35 days if you want to stay - you can take that $99 and apply it towards an annual membership in the Circle.
"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."
"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."
"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."
