Award winning creativity coach Angela Elster’s work has positively transformed more than 1 million lives by gently leading individuals to discover, and move through, their creative process. Angela says “If I was able to succeed in survived the deepest losses of my life, the darkest places that seemed impossible to cope with, then you can too. I truly hit rock bottom and then realised it didn’t kill me. It made me.” What I have learned from that time in my life is the vital importance of getting creative with your whole life! I want to share these tools with you! Tap into your creative spirit, take risks, imagine, open yourself to new pleasures, be prosperous, embrace life, turn your losses into your personal advantages. Use rock bottom as the foundation on which to build joy, love, abundance, and ecstasy. The arts are simply a small part of being creative. They help you access your creativity. What you need to do is live each moment ‘awake’ and ‘alive’ and make your life a work of creative art.

Let me help you move toward that wonderfully fulfilling place.

Other women who have used the power of creativity to transform their lives:

Elizabeth Gilbert:

“For me, a lifetime devoted to creativity is nothing but a scavenger hunt — where each successive clue is another tiny little hit of curiosity. Pick each one up, unfold it, see where it leads you next. Small steps. Keep doing that, and I promise you: The curiosity will eventually lead you to the passion. And that’ll be the end of boredom.”


J.K Rowling:

“I had failed on an epic scale. An exceptionally short lived marriage had imploded, and I was jobless, a lone parent, and as poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain without being homeless. The fears that my parents had had for me and that I had had for myself, had both come to pass, and by every usual standard I was the biggest failure I know…….and so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life. I have learned to value imagination in a much broader sense. Imagination is not only the the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation; in its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity it is the power that enables us to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared.”


Maya Angelou:

“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.”

    I've helped to facilitate writing workshops in a lot of beautiful places conducive to creativity, but none more beautiful or more conducive than Angela Elster's [Centre for Creative Learning].

    I was honoured to take part in the [Centre for Creative Learning’s] first poetry workshop weekend. The natural beauty, generosity and care behind this unique and exciting creative learning centre made my experience nothing but outstanding.

    The Westport Centre for Creative Learning is a wonderful, immersive experience, both a sanctuary and a creative hub. Whether you want to reflect while wandering the gorgeous grounds and gardens or engage in conversations around the fire, the Centre is an absolute gem - a welcoming oasis for the creative spirit in us all.

    It was a wonderful literary weekend writers’ workshop program at the Centre for Creative Learning that left everyone milling about the parked cars not wanting to leave CCL, not wanting to say their goodbyes, nor end the powerful magic of a perfect time devoted to craft and meaning.

    [Westport Centre for Creative Learning] is not merely a portal by which to get away from all the forces that drain the spirit, but a means to arrive at something essential, something real in one’s own creative process.  CCL nourishes body and soul—like its pond stirred up by a gentle waterfall, time spent there is both tranquil and moving.
