Getting Unstuck: Creativity, Play, and Self-Compassion

Join coach Laura Packer for a transformative four-session class to break through blocks, build confidence, and help you connect or reconnect to your art and yourself. All are welcome including storytellers, writers, artists, actors, and other creative people, which means everyone. Registration includes all four sessions and a workbook.

Event Details

This class is held on Zoom and runs from 8pmET / 7pmCT / 6pmMT / 5pmPT for four consecutive Thursdays (January 11, 18, 25, and February 1 2024). It will offer a safe space where you can unlock your creative potential (through play with words, images, spaces, physicality, and more) and further develop your self-compassion. Over these four sessions we will explore many different ways to reconnect to our own creative genius and will share what we've learned in a supportive environment. 

Coach and storyteller Laura Packer has been exploring creativity, play, and self-compassion for over 30 years in her work as a performing artist, teacher, and coach. She is committed to helping others find their own path with joy and curiosity. Find out more about Laura at

What can you expect?

  • Four engaging sessions that will fuel your imagination and creativity, and replenish your confidence.
  • The opportunity to learn from and connect with other creative people, as we co-create a community of learners and do-ers.
  • An online group where you can connect with your fellow explorers outside of class time, so you're never without support.
  • Hands-on exercises to help you overcome blocks and other common hurdles. We will focus on one or two tools for creativity and confidence in each session, trying the exercises and then working with them over the following week.
  • A deeper understanding of the power of self-compassion in the creative process.

Whether you're an accomplished writer, a novice storyteller, or engaging with some other creative work, this class is designed to help you break free from the constraints that are holding you back. Join us. It will be fun, useful, and the impact will last long after our time together. 

We look forward to seeing you at Getting Unstuck: Creativity, Play, and Self-Compassion.
