Create Your Bold Vision — From Idea To Completion

Create! is an immersive, intimate mastermind designed to support you in bringing one vivid, heartfelt creative project to life — with focused attention, skilled support, ease, joy, and sovereignty.

Inside this 6-month mastermind, you’ll experience the powerful results that come when you:

  • Receive expert guidance from a skillful, experienced mentor in the practical, “get it done” aspects of your project.
  • Learn how to apply the tools of soul alchemy to deepen and enrich your creation, and complete it with ease and grace.
  • Become part of a supportive community of creators who are on a similar path of artistry (whether in business or another medium).

For more than 35 years, I’ve worked with people like you, who are in the business of transformation — coaches, visionary entrepreneurs, conscious CEOs, artists, teachers, wisdom-keepers, writers, community organizers, mystics, and healers, among others.

Some of my clients are world-renowned experts. Others are bestselling authors. Some of you serve your communities with skill and heart and business artistry.

All of my clients and students share one thing in common: You are committed to a great-hearted, bold vision.

You want to create a more loving, just and harmonious world, to transform lives and communities, to serve generously — and to create wealth and prosperity so that your own life and business remain vibrant and regenerative.

If you find yourself nodding, Yes, to this, you’re likely brimming with ideas that you want to bring into the world.

Create!

So Why Hasn’t Your Latest Creative Project Become A Reality (Yet)?

Along with the excitement of new ideas, you’re likely also facing the challenges that come with translating your big vision into concrete work — products, programs, communities or works of art (and heart) that are good for your life, good for your business, good for your world, and serve your own and your customers’ deepest desires and needs.

Depending upon where you are in life right now, these challenges can show up in a variety of ways. Perhaps:

  • You have so many ideas, you can’t seem to settle on any single one and get started on bringing it to life. You’re afraid that choosing one will mean deferring or killing the rest of your dreams. But, while you avoid making a choice, your project remains stalled and so do you.
  • You have a specific creative project in mind that you keep putting off because it feels BIG — and you think you’re not ready yet. But it’s urging you to bring it into being now, to make it a central, essential element of your life and work.
  • You ride a roller coaster of feelings when you consider your creative project — excitement as you catch glimpses of new possibilities, the scattered wobbliness of indecision, a profound desire to go to sleep, or run a marathon, or KonMari your closets and scrub your floors to an immaculate state of gleaming perfection, or . . . whatever your avoidance-tactic-du-jour happens to be. You have a sneaking suspicion that, behind it all, fear is running the show.
  • You have already begun working on your project, but can’t quite see how to get it from where you are to where you want to be. You know that with the right support and guidance you could launch it successfully, but you’re not ready to invest in private coaching right now, and meanwhile, your project is languishing.
Create!

Here’s What I Know

There is a path through the confusion, uncertainty, resistance, and the gauntlet of gremlins that rise up to beset you when you say Yes to your true desires.

Create! offers you a compass to guide you to your soul’s wisdom, clarity, power and courage.

And, Create! is the best kind of studio playground — intimate, light, airy, grounded, spacious, filled with the freedom, tools and support you need to work your magic and bring your project to completion.

With skilled guidance, and the support of a community of creative folks who are also working on their craft, you’ll birth something that you can be proud of, that will bring greater prosperity, joy and freedom to your life.

In Create! we will work together for 6 months to map out your project, and either finish a major aspect of it, or bring it all the way to completion and launch it into the world. What you’ll accomplish will depend on your project’s complexity, its stage of development, and your capacity to get the work done in the time available.

What’s Possible For You, And Your Creative Project, When You Join Create!

Here are just a few of the creative challenges you can meet gracefully, with my support and that of our circle.

Creative Challenge #1:

“I Can’t Get Started Until…”

You’re feeling frustrated by the demands of your life or circumstances. You know you want to bring this creative idea to fruition, but it seems that life never offers you the spaciousness to get started. Your partner isn’t supportive enough, or Mercury is retrograde, or an illness has struck, or… it’s always something. You wonder when, or if, the time will come when you can pursue your heart’s desire.

Here’s What’s Possible: First, the truth: there will always be a reason not to get started. You may have already noticed that as soon as one situation resolves, another crops up to take its place. Inside Create!, using the tools and practices of energy alchemy, you’ll transform your relationship with your life and your circumstances. You’ll also call upon the assistance of the Devas and other multidimensional beings. Your project is no longer something you’ll struggle and strive to create, while feeling alone and isolated. Instead, it will flow in alignment with your soul’s desires, and in harmony with your world.

Creative Challenge #2:

“It’s Too Big.”

An idea has alighted on your shoulder. A BIG, beautiful, glorious idea. You dream of creating an engaged community of activists who share your vision and values. Or a movement that benefits a cause you love and are rooting for. You want to birth a complex and potentially brilliant new aspect of your business. You envision speaking at the United Nations General Assembly, presenting a keynote at the World Economic Forum in Davos, performing Lucia Di Lammermoor at La Scala, or holding an exhibition of your sculpture at MOMA. The sheer scale of your desire and vision, while exhilarating to daydream about, feels impossible to achieve. Are you really up to the challenge of creating something of this magnitude? You’re not Oprah, after all.

Here’s What’s Possible: First, it’s important to understand that you don’t have to wait until you’re skilled enough, rich enough, talented enough or smart enough to create the project you envision. Even Oprah started out as a newscaster — one who wasn’t slender and shiny blonde, like so many of her peers! When you act to bring your creation into being, it will grow you into the person whose life includes it. When you take the first steps in devotion and faith, you set in motion a process that will transform you from the person you are today, to the person who has made a new world, who has built something beautiful and useful. Inside Create! you’ll receive both the practical guidance and expertise, and the soulful wisdom, to navigate this process of creative transformation with joy and ease.

Creative Challenge #3:

“I’m Scared That…”

You feel fairly clear about what you want to create, but you ride the waves of indecision, driven by fear. What if this idea is stupid and no-one wants it? What if it fails? What if it succeeds beyond your wildest dreams and that stirs up jealousy, envy, or other problems with people you care about? What if you become the target of online trolls? As long as these questions continue to swirl around in your head, you remain stuck and afraid to proceed.

Here’s What’s Possible: Often, our younger, more vulnerable selves (the You that you were at age 5, or 17, for example) go into a tailspin when we’re ready to make what seems to them a bold and risky move. (“Remember how everyone laughed at you in Grade 3 when you brought your stuffed bunny to show-and-tell and its ear fell off!” “Remember how he said “Nah!” when you asked him to sit with you at lunch, and then he whispered and giggled with his friends until you ran out of the cafeteria?”) When you develop a compassionate, yet sovereign, relationship with your inner selves, and you remind them of what’s really true, as opposed to the stories they’ve been holding onto for years, you can create your soul’s deepest desires with playfulness, enthusiasm and focus. This is exactly what we’ll do (and more!) inside the Create! Mastermind.

Creative Challenge #4:

“I Have No Idea Why I Am Procrastinating.”

You’ve researched your idea, scoured the internet for resources, taken programs, read books, made lists. You’ve been doing this for longer than you care to admit. You’re too tired, too busy, too uninspired, too overwhelmed to get started. At the end of a day, you wonder what you really got done and berate yourself for not focusing on the things that truly matter to you. You tell yourself you’ll start tomorrow … and the cycle begins all over again.

Here’s What’s Possible: Contrary to popular opinion, passion and drive don’t make your dreams come true. Passion and drive are good fire starters. They just aren’t great fuel for the long haul. Creation takes courage, devotion, strength, curiosity, and the willingness to dance with uncertainty. Just as having a child transforms you into a parent, each act of creation incarnates new aspects of yourself. Each creation expands your experience of who you are. The flip side of this is that every creation has the potential to upend your life and destroy cherished beliefs and outworn identities. This can feel scary, or overwhelming, or both. Your beliefs about who you are — no matter how ill-informed or outdated they may be — remain integral to your sense of being safe in a familiar, comfortable world. When you threaten those beliefs and identities by entering into relationship with a new creation that’s going to expand your sense of yourself as an artist, as a human being, your inner world erupts in turmoil. Self-doubt, fear, and all the other gremlins that beset you raise their voices, clamouring for you to get back to where you once belonged. To navigate this terrain without turning back, you need clear-eyed mentoring, skilled support, and practices to transform confusion and strife into wholeness and alignment. The Create! Mastermind will provide you with both the practical tools and the soul wisdom to grow and evolve with grace.

“My business has more than quadrupled in size since working with Hiro. It feels wonderful and true — in alignment with my soul and heart and life.

After years of doing my business on my own, I now have solid support in my corner. I’ve done so much work with other coaches before, but Hiro is the most powerful healer and mentor I’ve ever experienced. She is deeply worth the investment.”

Leonie Dawson, Bestselling Author, Creator of Shining Biz & Life Academy

Jen Louden

“Hiro is a Soul Sherpa. She knows where to find the crevasses and how to get you to your summits.

After…working my psyche with Hiro’s techniques, I was not only tuned up, but leaving with the tools to, as she puts it, “become my own business adviser.” I thought I always was my own business adviser, but sometimes it’s outmoded thought forms and tired ol’ karma calling the shots. But not after Boga time.

This is the sacred work that needs to be done before you forge into the world with your ambitions and plans.”

Danielle LaPorte, Bestselling author and speaker, Creator of The Desire Map

Jen Louden

“Through Hiro’s mentorship and the support of my fellow Create! sisters:

  • I am staying on track, not getting lost in distractions and denials.
  • I am taking a fresh look at my ways of being a creative person in the world.
  • I’m making friends with structure and consistency for the first time!

At the core of Hiro’s uniquely awesome teaching/mentoring approach is the energetic and alchemical support. The container in which we are all held is vast and multidimensional. I simply wouldn’t be interested in any program without it at this point.

Melissa Matson, owner and inspired entrepreneur of ‘Embodied Living’

Jen Louden

“I have consulted with Hiro at a variety of transition stages in my business when I required a deep level of insight and guidance. Her deeply powerful sessions always left me both clear on the right business direction and super-charged with excitement and purpose.

Few people understand the human and spiritual side of business like Hiro does. She is a powerful mentor, and an ally of self-empowerment, sovereignty and the grace that lives within all of us.”

Pam Slim, Bestselling Author and Creator of K’e: A Place to Grow Small Business

“The wealth of knowledge offered in Create! is unlike any other. It is a wish come true! While there are programs that offer energetic components, I have yet to find one that draws on such vast knowledge and understanding and directly applies its praxis in so many areas.

Hiro advises on systems and structures as well as relationships with allies and devas. This breadth of wisdom results in accomplishing my goals with ease and moving all the pieces into coherence. I will never work any other way and I am deeply grateful for all the transformation it brings to my life.”

“Working with soul alchemy has become an essential part of my project because of how rapidly it has allowed me to remove years of emotional debris that have held me back. I’ve learned to narrow my focus and use intuitive skills to talk with my project, giving me more confidence to trust my inner direction.

For me, the Create program is ultimately about creative mastery. This is a process that can only be learned through action and following inner wisdom. I am applying the skills I’ve learned in Create to all kinds of creative endeavors. If you have a creative project in the pipeline and want apply alchemy skills to grow yourself and your work, I highly recommend Create.”

Here’s A Map Of The Entire 6-Month Create! Journey

WHAT: Create! is a studio program — an action-based, intimate mastermind designed to take your project from idea to completion within 6 months.

WHY: At this stage of my life, my main desire is to see you shine. I want to support you and your genius so you can grow in creative mastery, leadership, prosperity and radiance, and serve your world in generative, practical ways. My intention for this collaborative, intimate circle is that you will enrich each other with your shared wisdom, make lifelong friends and allies, and support each other to create projects that serve you and your community, and bring you prosperity and joy.

WHEN: April 15, 2018 — October 14, 2018. You’ll enjoy a full 6 months of skilled support, expert guidance, and shared community — enough time and spaciousness to bring your idea from conception all the way to completion, yet not so much time that you’ll feel your creative energies flagging.

WHO: An intimate circle of 18 inspired, dynamic creators.

WHERE: Twice a month we’ll meet for a live, 90-minute call, which I will facilitate. I’ll offer teachings and practices based on the work you’re doing, there’ll be time for Q&A and mentoring, as well as check-ins and next steps.

Twice a month, you’ll participate in studio hours, where you’ll have the opportunity to work, in smaller groups of three or four, on your projects. You’ll be able to practice with your peers, ask for and receive feedback, and offer your own when it’s requested.

In-between calls, we’ll meet virtually in a private group forum, where you can post your intentions, actions steps, requests for support and celebration, and more.

Why Work With Me?

For over 35 years, I’ve been an entrepreneur and a pioneer in the field of transformation, soul alchemy, and soul-inspired creativity. I’ve been privileged to mentor thousands of people like you — creative, passionate, soulful, devoted artists — to build lives and businesses that serve you, your community and our world in meaningful ways.

I hold a BSc in Psychology, and both BA and MFA degrees in Creative Writing. I’ve published several books, and taught Creative Writing in university MFA programs, professional writing workshops, and conferences. I’ve edited over 150 books in a variety of genres — literary fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry — and have mentored a number of award-winning authors in both the functional aspects of the creative process and the energetic alchemical principles that bring any creation to life.

As a master teacher, I’ve created dozens of successful programs, authored several digital products and ebooks, and spent four decades practicing and teaching the energetics of building, growing and running successful businesses that flourish over a lifetime.

Inside Create! you’ll receive the practical wisdom, tools, and guidance to complete your project. Along the way, you’ll cleanse and transform patterns that have truncated or obstructed your creativity, sometimes for decades. You’ll discover a new relationship with your creativity, and will end our six months together feeling energized, supported, trustworthy, and enthusiastic about your art.

Is Create! Right For You?

You may be wondering whether this is the right program for you, at this stage of your creative journey. Here is how you’ll know.

Create! is right for you if…

  • You’re clear about what you want to create next, and have begun working on your project, but find yourself held back by fear, distraction, lack of confidence or clarity about the next steps to take. Or, perhaps you don’t yet know what’s holding you back, but you know you need to make an inner shift to get the outer work done.
  • You know what you need to do, but you lack the support, systems, structures, and practices that will help you move forward.
  • You don’t need hand-holding, but you’d love the wisdom and expertise of an experienced mentor who’s already traveled the path upon which you are embarking — someone to clear the brambles off the trail, offer insight and mentoring, and help you tap into your own wisdom to determine which side of the fork in the road to take in order to reach your ultimate destination.
  • You’re able and willing not only to invest in the program, but to hire any support you may need to complete those aspects of your project that lie outside your zone of genius.
  • You love to create art, products or services that makes the world a better place, and that increase your joy, prosperity and fulfillment — but you know you could be doing more (and with more ease) with the right guidance and support.
  • You love the idea of applying soul alchemy and energetic skills to your creative project, so you can avoid “pushing” yourself to exhaustion and burnout — and instead move forward with ease, spaciousness, and sovereignty.
  • You love working collaboratively, in the intimacy of a circle of your peers.

Create! is not right for you right now if…

  • You want a productivity formula or “time management” system for bringing your project to completion. There are indeed steps you can take that are effective, but a big part of creative sovereignty is discerning which strategies and tactics are in alignment with your vision and values, which ones support your own unique creative process, and then applying those in your own way.
  • You’re financially strapped and investing in this program would be a burden for you.
  • You’re looking for someone to do the work for you. This is not a done-for-you program.
  • What you really want is one-on-one support and mentoring (I offer that, separately, on my Mentoring page).

Your Next Step

If what you’ve read here resonates with you, then you’re here for a reason.

Create! offers you a home and an artist’s studio in which to craft your dreams and make them real. In six months, you could experience the joy of launching your new creation into the world and watching it touch the lives and hearts of the folks it’s meant to serve.

If your creative project is entrepreneurial in nature, you could be enjoying the expanded prosperity that comes from adding a beautiful new offering to your business, while having the spaciousness in your life to nurture yourself, connect more deeply with your beloveds — and dream up your next project!

When you join Create! you’ll benefit from my skilled guidance, experience and devotion to you and your craft — and you’ll become part of a community that honors your heart’s path and your soul’s wisdom.

The entire Create! experience includes:

An Alchemical Container For Brewing Success

From the moment you register, you enter an energetically heightened, activated space that holds you, your journey, your project and your success in alignment with your soul’s purposes and those of the soul of your business. Miracles happen, in this space. Serendipity rules.

Twice-Monthly Group Calls

I’ll lead these calls personally. Each 90-minute call will include mentoring and teachings that arise from the work you’re doing, time for Q&A, and time for you to share with me and the group the next steps you’ll take towards the completion of your project.

Twice-Monthly Studio Hours Calls

We’ll match you up with two or three other group members, with whom you’ll meet virtually twice a month for a morning or afternoon studio session. You’ll co-work together in your virtual studio, and create with the support of each others’ wisdom, heart, experience and brilliance.

Private Community Forum

You’ll have access to a private, members-only community, where you can share your intentions, ideas, challenges, progress reports and questions with your peers. I’ll visit the group regularly, and post suggestions and practices for you to consider, when those seem appropriate. I may also offer reflections or brief teachings that are relevant to the group’s energy and synergy as you move through the program together.

Completion Ceremony

We’ll end with a live call to celebrate what you’ve created, and to energetically activate your next steps. You will take with you the tools and wisdom you’ve gathered, the friendships you’ve forged, and a renewed relationship with your creative muse that’s anchored in mutual trust, love, clarity, sovereignty, devotion and enthusiasm.

FAQs

I love the idea of your program. I want to finish my book / create my new art piece / write and launch my new offering, but . . . I have a lot going on in my life right now. I’m feeling depleted and exhausted. I find it hard to work on my creative ideas. Should I give myself a break, or am I simply procrastinating?

You know yourself better than anyone, so you are the best judge of what’s right for you. And, when you’re caught in the thickets of busyness, overwhelm, or exhaustion, it’s hard to make clear, sovereign choices that move you towards your heart’s desire.

Your creations transform you. In creating them, you are creating the You whose life includes your new creation. That thing that’s knocking on the door of your heart. . . Saying Yes to it will transform you and your life forever. You won’t be the same person, after you’ve created it.

And there’s the rub. There’s the reason so many of us find oh-so-many reasons not to act.

You don’t know who you’ll be, when you’ve completed your creation and birthed it into the world. You won’t recognize the You that is powerful, radiant, at home in the world, supremely generative. The You that stands tall, with your feet firmly planted in the ground of sovereignty, prosperity and freedom.

So. You avoid it. You find ways to sidestep it.

It takes courage to say Yes to your soul’s desire, to do the patient, masterful work of bringing it to life.

It takes more than courage. It takes skill and determination. It takes the kind of support that can hold you and your creation from beginning to completion. It takes an intelligent, encouraging and devoted community to make the journey with you. It takes a structure, a scaffolding, that holds you up while you do the work of building your thing, in your own way.

You may find that your younger, more vulnerable inner selves are at the forefront right now, doing their best to keep you (and themselves) safe. They don’t have the experience to know that creativity is life itself — that your creations heal and rejuvenate you. So they try to stop you in your tracks by any means they can find. Busyness. Overwhelm. Exhaustion. Brain fog. For them, any change is scary, because they don’t have the power or capacity to handle it. And they’re convinced you don’t, either.

Meet your inner selves with love, with compassion, with clear discernment and sovereignty. Remind them that you’ve got this — they don’t have to participate in your creation, unless they want to. Give them the love, reassurance and safety they need, and bring them back into your heart, where they belong.

Then ask yourself these questions, and sense or feel into your responses to them rather than thinking your way through them:

  • Who will I be at the end of six months, if I say Yes to my project, and commit to completing it in that time? Is this who I want to be? If so, am I willing to act to embrace my becoming?
  • How will my creation benefit and bless my world? Is this contribution congruent with my desires? Am I willing to invest myself — my resources of time, energy, creativity, money and more — to make this particular contribution to my world? If not, is there some other project or creation that feels more in alignment with my soul’s purposes at this time?
I have taken your programs, Rule Your World, Dreaming In The Dark, and Become Your Own Business Adviser. I continue to use everything I’ve learned from them, every day. Doing this has changed my life phenomenally. Will Create! teach me new skills and different ways to approach my work?

Create! is a studio program rather than a teaching program. It’s focused on getting work done — on completing a specific creative project in six months. You’ll apply all the skills you’ve learned in my other programs, to your creative project. You’ll have mentoring and guidance from me throughout our time together. I will also offer teachings that arise from your work, in our private group forum, and during our live calls. So, yes, you’ll learn new approaches and new, more refined ways of applying the skills you learned in my other programs — but you’ll learn most of all by doing, by honing your craft.

Think of this process as being an artist apprenticed to your art, rather than being a student.

Depending on the nature of your project, you may learn more about curriculum design, or how to become a more skillful, true and compelling writer, or how to craft an effective and successful sales funnel that embodies your soul and your values. You may learn new energy alchemy skills during our live calls, or discover new ways to apply your existing energy alchemy skills to bring your project to successful completion.

While the programs you’ve taken with me have given you energy alchemy skills that are life-changing, those teachings are just a small portion of the vast landscape of energy alchemy.

There comes a time in your creative process where the work itself becomes your greatest teacher. You will, I trust, continue to learn and grow throughout your life, but mastery emerges from doing your work and letting it guide you.

As always, I offer all of my skill, experience, knowledge and wisdom in service to you and your project. And, you will have access to the support, skills and knowledge of everyone else in our small community.

I’m based in ________ (Australia / New Zealand / Europe / Asia / Africa). Will the live calls be at a time when I can attend? I know these are important components of the program, and want to make sure I’m able to commit to them. Same with the studio hours.

This is a small group mastermind, so I want to make sure everyone who wants to attend the live calls has a chance to do so. Folks in my programs live all over the world, in wildly different time zones. We’ll do our very best to offer the live calls at a time that works for most people in the program.

At the moment, our live calls will take place on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. Once our group forms, we’ll determine the timing of these calls to make sure that most, if not all, of you will be able to attend. I want people to get the most out of this program, so we’ll tailor it to meet the needs of the majority in our circle.

As for the studio hours — they will be held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month. You’ll meet each other in small groups of three or four people. You will be calling each other directly, via Zoom or Google Hangouts, so each small group will arrange a time to meet that works best for you.

In selecting small group partners, we’ll do our best to ensure you’re in overlapping or similar time zones, to make it easy for you to connect.

I am interested in Create! but I am working on a new collection of paintings, not a business. These paintings are different than anything I’ve created before. Is this program just for business owners, or is it a good fit for an artist like me, who’s exploring a new dimension of my work?

My intention with this program is to provide a container of impeccable support for artists (business or otherwise) engaged in a significant creative project — whether that’s a new book, a new collection of paintings, a new methodology, program or app, a new iteration of business, a play or screenplay, or something else entirely.

As the world becomes more sharply divided, more entrenched in rigidly conformist ways of being and relating, art is the tip of the green shoot that pushes through the stubborn clay of habit and fear. And art-making, which has always been a hazardous activity, becomes more essential to the well-being of the whole. It also grows more fraught with the terrors that beset us when we seek to transform ourselves and the world around us, through our art, into sources of beauty and blessing.

Our times call us to join together in communities that offer both sovereignty and freedom. To co-create spaces within which our collective power amplifies those qualities of courage, strength, resourcefulness, and creativity with which we make our art. And to bring forth that which is yearning to be born, which cannot come to life without the work of our hearts and hands. Create! is such a community. As an artist working on a creative project, you are welcome here.

I'm nervous about investing this much in a Mastermind. I've never done it before (although, if I’m honest, I've also never made as much progress as I would like, on my own). How much can I REALLY gain from this experience? Will it turn out to be an investment in my future, or an expense that will leave me feeling financially tapped out?

First, give yourself a soft hug for voicing your fears and asking this question. It’s astonishing how much anxiety and uncertainty come up when we get close to the thing we most desire.

The short answer to your question is, I don’t know. Signing up for Create! may turn out to be the best thing you’ve ever done for yourself. Or, it may not be right for you — or right for you right now.

You know yourself better than anyone else. Which means that you can trust yourself — your discernment, your wisdom — to guide you to what’s best for you. You may be afraid to acknowledge the truth of what you know, but there’s always a place within you, beyond your dreams, beyond your fears, where you know what’s true for you.

Tune into the desire in your heart. Feel its pulse, its pull, its resonance. Feel the you that wants — more than anything else — to make your dreams fly. Feel the you that wants this creation more than the you that’s afraid of having it. Feel the you that wants the creative adventure more than comfort or safety or guarantees.

You don’t know who you’ll be, when you’ve completed your creation and launched it into the world. You don’t know how it will change the trajectory of your life. You don’t know what it will bring in its wake. Curiosity is a more reliable ally, in making this decision, than the desire for certainty. Curiosity leads to discovery, and is the impetus for making art. The desire for certainty leads to…more of what you already know.

So… I don’t know what’s right for you. Here’s what I do know: Fears about money are seldom about money. If you had enough money to do anything you wanted to, would you choose to step into this circle of generativity that is Create? Would you choose this as the container that holds you securely while you complete your creative project? Or would something else cause you to hesitate, or to say No?

Here are some other questions you can explore, to help you clarify what you truly want:

  • If I say Yes to my project, and to joining Create!, who will I be, at the end of six months?
  • If I say No to my project and to Create!, who will I be at the end of six months?
  • How will my life and/or my business change, as a result of creating this thing I’m longing to make?
  • If I trusted myself completely, what would I choose to do now?

Ultimately, be trustworthy to yourself. Trust your desire, trust the call of your soul, trust your inner sense of right timing and right relationship with your creation, and it will lead you to the future that’s yours to create. When you say Yes to that which belongs with you, everything in the universe conspires to support you.

It seems that, often, when I'm working with others in a group setting, I don't get that much done. Too much chatting, not enough working. Is there anything about the structure of the smaller groups within Create! that acts as a kind of check-and-balance... or is this maybe just my ego coming up with excuses (based on old stories) for not moving forward on something that would help me?

As a creative introvert, I share your concern, and address it right at the beginning of our program. The Create Guidebook (which you’ll receive once you sign up) offers a robust and simple structure for your small group studio hours. It’s designed to keep you, as a group, focused on doing your work together, in a virtual co-working space.

Should you decide that you want to spend time getting to know each other, strengthening the bonds between you, and exploring your creative projects together, you are free to arrange alternate times to do that. The folks in the current session of Create! have found that they want both — time to talk, connect, and brainstorm together, and time for co-working. So, they’ve added extra studio hours, to be able to do both.

As for “excuses”… in your heart, you always know when something’s right for you and when it’s not. Take a look at my response to Question #1, above, for suggestions on how to get clear about whether the Create! program is right for you at this time.

I’m already working on your self-study program, Rule Your World from the Inside Out. Will I have time to do that AND participate in this mastermind?

The purpose of the Create! Mastermind is to support you in getting your creative project done. It’s a studio program rather than a teaching program. You’ll find that the energy alchemy practices you’re learning in Rule Your World will be immensely helpful when — as inevitably happens with any substantive creative project — you find yourself mired in procrastination, overwhelm, stuckness or spinning your wheels.

Create! alumni have discovered that the unwavering personal support and community connection they’ve received in the Mastermind strengthens their ability to move swiftly through any creative obstacles that arise, as they implement the practices they’ve learned in Rule Your World. You may find that this is true for you, too.

“I needed a writing mentor, and a container in which to hold my writing project, so I could move further while gaining a solid understanding of the process of bringing my project to life. Since I had taken all of Hiro’s other programs, I was excited to learn how to apply energy alchemy to the creative process.

Create is the perfect container for creative projects, with a vast gentle space and tons of energy resources to explore your creativity. It’s given me a new identity as a writer and a creative, not only through the support of Hiro and fellow sisters but also by energetically holding me in a space where I can clear out blocks to that identity and move further into writing wholeheartedly.

Working with soul alchemy has become an essential part of my project because of how rapidly it has allowed me to remove years of emotional debris that have held me back. I’ve learned to narrow my focus and use intuitive skills to talk with my project, giving me more confidence to trust my inner direction.

Before Create, I had no idea what the creative process really meant. Discovering it has changed my world. I’ve come to realize that creative energies fluctuate depending on what else is going on in my life. I’ve also learned a lot about creative mastery – the process of creating something out of nothing — and to hold myself in the uncertain waters, eventually finding shores on which to land. I’m so relieved to have a group of sisters to share this process with and to see how the creative process manifests in each of our projects, our processes, and our lives.

For me, the Create program is ultimately about creative mastery. This is a process that can only be learned through action and following inner wisdom. I am applying the skills I’ve learned in Create to all kinds of creative endeavors. If you have a creative project in the pipeline and want apply alchemy skills to grow yourself and your work, I highly recommend Create.”

“Working with Hiro is one of the most powerful transformational experiences I have enjoyed in a long life of transformational experiences.

She is the real deal and that is something, as you know, that is rare in our hyper-inflated show-me-the-money times.

Her knowledge and wisdom is vast, her ability to help you shift extraordinary, and her heart shines so brightly.

I find myself grinning just writing this – she is that real and that good.”

“In the age of Internet marketing hype, Hiro is a rare luminary, a sage, a way shower and a visionary. Her warm, strong, empowering presence helps you to remember who you are and that it’s your birthright and your joy to let your light shine. Hiro is now a key member of my business advisory circle/support network and I look forward to tapping into her wisdom for years to come!”

“After working intensely with editors and in professional writing workshops, I had finished most of my first novel, and was deep in the revisions stage. I knew I needed more support to complete my manuscript, but couldn’t decide what that support would look like. Create! appeared at exactly the right moment.

True, deep mentorship, energetic knowledge and support, a community of intensely committed, courageous, and supportive fellow creators, and guidance in all areas of the creative process and of my artistic life. Create! has provided this and so much more. It is a wish come true!

Create! has given me a strong, reliable, practical and energetic container that holds me throughout the day and supports me in my creative process on many levels. I came in struggling with problems of structure and Hiro addressed those with detailed suggestions. She also offered specific advice on ways of revising the work to fulfill the vision I held for it.

Hiro emphasizes that a creative project challenges us to evolve, and that has been my experience with Create!. This has happened to me in profound and unexpected ways, on levels much deeper than I had expected.

I am learning how to harmonize outer and inner elements, both in myself and my writing, so that the world of my novel emerges organically from the collaboration between its essence and mine. Create! has served as a soulful atelier that continues to bring my life and my work into beautiful alignment.

The wealth of knowledge offered in Create! is unlike any other. While there are programs that offer energetic components, I have yet to find one that draws on such vast knowledge and understanding and directly applies its praxis in so many areas.

Hiro’s work is to the energetics of creation what the laws of physics are to our material world. I will never work any other way and I am deeply grateful for all the transformation it brings to my life.

This breadth of wisdom results in accomplishing one’s goals with ease and moving all the pieces into coherence. Create! is for anyone passionate about creating and evolving.”

“When I came to Hiro I was at a crossroads in my business. I knew the next chapter would require a leap of faith, but I was afraid to jump. Just hearing Hiro’s melodious voice calmed my agitated soul. She guided me through a visualization where she introduced me to the Deva of my business.

Turns out my business had a lot to say to me. It was very clear about where it wanted to go and that it was time for the next chapter. It reminded me that there’s nothing to fear, because my success resides within me. My energy shifted in that moment, it was as if I’d arrived back in my body, and my power. I felt this sense of rightness and momentum. I knew exactly what I wanted to do and how I was going to do it. I kid you not, as soon as the session was over, new opportunities came pouring in — I was literally being pulled into my next phase.

Then in two subsequent sessions, Hiro gave me sage, straight-up business advice.
If you’re looking for the perfect alchemy between practical and spiritual business advice, Hiro is simply the best.”

“Hiro has given me the tools to clearly see, manage and deliberately shift my emotional patterns and energetic system. I was slowly losing power and even will. Hiro helped me stop allowing my business to rule and run me. She taught me how to step within and realign my soul with my operations, marketing, sales and purpose.”

Create! Mastermind Testimonial | HiroBoga.com

“I’m over the moon thankful that I joined the Create Mastermind. I was so scared at first to step inside Create, but I loved our space, time and work together. I feel so much more ease and joy in my relationships — with myself, my soul, with my life, with my husband & children & family. I have also learned how to experience, express and serve my art through my business, step by step, as a naturally unfolding process.

Create offered me the container to write my first book. As I focused on writing, my work with my clients developed to the soul level. The biggest gift in the program was discovering my soul qualities, which freed me to dream, plan and create.

The listening, support, energy alchemy and love from Hiro is so powerful. Being on the other side of the world, and yet feeling so close to the women in the program, was magical. Create gave me access to my joy, power, tears, friends, enthusiasm, love and so much more. It has lead me to the new home of my heart.”

“Being mentored by Hiro over these last seven years has been life changing. Speaking from my deepest heart, I don’t know where I would be right now without her support, wisdom and guidance. My life has transformed from one that didn’t fit me at all, to one that does — spectacularly and beautifully. And my business is flowing at a rate bigger than I ever imagined.

My business has more than quadrupled in size since working with Hiro. It feels wonderful and true — in alignment with my soul and heart and life.

After years of doing my business on my own, I now have solid support in my corner. I’ve done so much work with other coaches before, but Hiro is the most powerful healer and mentor I’ve ever experienced. She is deeply worth the investment.”

“I’ve had so many breakthroughs since we started working together, I don’t even know where to begin!

It’s been a transformative business makeover, yes, but so much more than that.

With your help, not only did I create a course that was an immediate financial success, but one that is sharper, more profound, more wonderfully and radically creative, more me than I could have ever dreamed of when I started.

What we ended up doing together was shaping a whole new way of working and being. You helped me see all the ways I didn’t take care of myself, all the ways I held myself back and kept my business small, and you gave me the tools to grow and expand far beyond those limitations.

Exit striving, pushing and hiding, enter powerful creative flow and sweet success.

I feel like I’ve finally bridged the gap between the life I was living and the creative life of my dreams.

I could not have done this without you.”

“Several years ago, a very wise and spiritually awake friend suggested I take a look at Hiro Boga’s work. I did, and I am continually inspired and awestruck by the effortless flow through which Hiro weaves the concrete everyday actions of life with the unseen interconnectedness of All.

When Create! landed in my inbox I was delighted. But more than delighted, the content spoke to a part of my soul that has been yearning for support and mentorship in relation to my creative life and the expression of it. I knew instantly that this fine level of mentorship is exactly what’s needed to birth my life’s work. It’s that simple — I know through Hiro’s guidance (and a lot of conscious action on my part), my birthright is taking form.

Through Hiro’s mentorship and the support of my fellow Create! sisters:

  • I am staying on track, not getting lost in distractions and denials.
  • I am taking a fresh look at my ways of being a creative person in the world.
  • I am re-exploring and re-enchanting what turns me on, inspires and enlightens me.
  • I am resting in the support and trusting the creative expressive ebb and flow.
  • I am gratefully embracing the gentle nudges from Hiro’s expert guidance.
  • I’m making friends with structure and consistency for the first time!

At the core of Hiro’s uniquely awesome teaching/mentoring approach is the energetic and alchemical support. The container in which we are all held is vast and multidimensional. I simply wouldn’t be interested in any program without it at this point.

I am also surprised at how spontaneously intimate and deeply vulnerable we have all become in such a short period of time.

If you are interested in authentically, deeply and effectively embodying the creative you were born to be, dive into this extraordinary program.”

“The work Hiro and I have been doing together for the past 6 months has given my business solid roots and sustainable growth. I’ve learned so much from Hiro’s balanced approach to life and business. I’m lucky to call her my coach.

Here are some of the tangible things that have resulted from our sessions: I’ve hired a new business manager to liberate me from the day-to-day operations of my company. I launched and sold out a new offering that Hiro and I shaped together in less than 48 hours; worked through tough decisions; and fleshed out the next version of my live event.

In addition to the effects on my business, we have done personal work to heal family dynamics, and I have learned how to grow into my own business adviser role even more fully. Wow — it’s amazing how much we were able to create together! Thank you so much, Hiro.”
