The tools that brought the most transformation in the years after my bereavement were grounded in my own innate CREATIVITY. Photography, journaling, blogging and practicing mindfulness all worked together to open the door to who I really am. After decades of living life with my eyes shut, I was finally — joyfully, gratefully, humbly — awake. I bloomed.
Being creative brings us satisfaction in the moment, but it goes so much deeper than that. It gives us a voice to express ourselves in more meaningful ways. It shines the light on our truest Selves, as we explore the layers of our lives and dreams. It helps us ask the right questions — and uncover the answers. It (re)connects us to the source of all the wisdom we’ll ever need: our own inner knowing.
If you’re hungry to uncover your own unique expressive voice, you’re absolutely in the right place.
I believe the more we explore our innate creativity the more meaning and connection we bring to our lives, and everything I do in my e-courses, in my book and here on this site is to help you do exactly that.
One of my superpowers is bringing people together online and sharing what I know. All of my courses help you to dive deep into your inner world, reawakening your creativity and nurturing self-expression through photography, journaling, mindfulness practices and blogging.
Plus alongside this delicious new connection to your creative Self, you’ll also meet a group of like-minded souls from around the world — we learn best as we support each other and share our stories.
Are you ready to begin? Let’s do this!
I currently have four online courses on offer, each taking you deeper into an aspect of your self and your creativity...
My newest course is The Sacred Alone, a gentle 14-day journey into the quiet knowing space in your heart that offers refuge, wisdom and calm. Each day you receive an email from me containing a short essay on the day’s theme, a downloadable MP3 audio (alternating meditations and visualisations) and a series of powerful journal prompts to work on. Each day builds on the last, so that by the end of our 14 days together you’ve created your own Sacred Alone practice you can build on going forward. This. Is. Magic.
There are as many ways to journal as there are people on the planet, so in Journal Your Life I share my own particular flavour: a mix of traditional pen-and-paper recording + visual mapping and list making. In this 6-week course I take you through the creation of your own Creative Dream Journal, the tool that’s helped me truly write my dreams in reality. Each week we focus on a specific area of our lives, excavating our own personal wisdom, getting honest with ourselves on the page and breathing life into the dreams we hold in our hearts. It's powerful stuff!
If you’ve ever wondered how you can infuse more of your soul into your photographs, Photo Meditations, is for you. The 5-week course includes in-depth lessons, assignments, narrated slideshows, interviews and all my photography secrets. It features digital, film and iPhone photography because all cameras are beautiful, so if you want to go deeper with your photography, and develop your own way of seeing the world, this is a great place to start...
And then there is Blogging from the Heart. This 6-week course teaches you how to share your life online as a way to express yourself creatively, mine the riches in your daily life and meet like-minded friends along the way. The course includes in-depth lessons, writing prompts, videos from me, interviews and everything I know about crafting a blog that truly reflects who you are. So if you want to go deeper with your writing, come join us as we explore our creativity via blogging.

"The Sacred Alone was one of the best things I've ever done for myself. I discovered that even though I have a gorgeous wife and 5 kids, lots of work and a busy home life, I can still find pockets of alone time and honour myself amongst my day. The meditations were very powerful and a great way to focus within. The journal exercises have rekindled my love for journalling my thoughts and emotions. Though most of all, this course enabled me to feel like I deserved and indeed was nourished by regular time being really 'alone' in a sacred way. Thank you Susannah - you're a marvel."
"I can’t believe how the time flew by with this course. I enjoyed it so much. I found it was the perfect place for me to spread my blogging wings, ask questions, get advice, share ideas and test new waters as someone trying to really honor my desire to blog. It is such a desire, you know? I just love doing it. And having your feedback, the Facebook community and meeting other established bloggers helped me further define my unique desire and how to best share it with the world."
