Cultivate energy, inspiration, and balance in your life

Two-part VIRTUAL workshop:

Part 1: Wednesday, September 28th*
Part 2: Wednesday, October 12th*

6:30-8:30 pm ET both days.

*Note that dates have shifted (originally scheduled for Sept 18th and Oct 9th).

Sliding scale: $40-$60 [includes both parts]. Please Venmo @Emma-Schurink or send a check. If money is the obstacle, please reach out.

Meetings will happen virtually via Zoom.

Are you running on empty? Feeling uninspired? Do you struggle to make time to care for yourself or have a hard time saying no to others?

We are like fire: without tending to our personal needs, we burn out or sometimes, unintentionally, cause harm to ourselves and/or others.

In a culture that promotes overworking and pleasing others, it’s hard to allow permission to tend to ourselves. When we give beyond our capacity, we easily feel stressed, exhausted, and spiritually drained. But when we tend to our inner fire and find balance, we feel energized and inspired. We are even able to nourish healthier relationships with others and the world.

In the first part of this two-part workshop, through prompts, exercises, and dialogue you will:

  1. Tune into your intuition for clarity around your needs
  2. Clarify your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs
  3. Identify what beliefs are limiting you from tending to your needs
  4. Brainstorm self-care practices that feel nourishing to you
  5. Create healthy boundaries to protect your well-being

In the second part of the two-part workshop, we will check-in about the steps you’ve taken so far, any blocks that continue to limit you, and how else you can support your self-care practice.

I will offer guidance throughout and encourage you to dig deep, get concrete, and help you find your own answers. You will also receive a couple emails between the two sessions to further support you on your journey.

Create A Life You’re Excited to Wake Up To

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”
~ Mary Oliver

It’s not often we’re asked questions like, what are you longing to experience in your life? What could you do to inspire purpose, belonging, and joy in your life?

In the first part of this two-part workshop, we’ll explore questions like these. Through guided visualizations, exercises, writing prompts, and dialogue, you will tune into your intuitive voice and explore how you want to spend your time and energy in this next phase of your “one wild and precious life.” You’ll articulate self-identified steps and goals to begin making your vision a reality.

During the second session of the workshop, we will check in about any milestones you’ve reached—big or small—and what continues to block you. I will offer my guidance throughout the two-part workshop and encourage you to dig deep, get concrete, and help you find your own answers.

When you’re living a life you’re excited to wake up to, you have more energy, patience, and love to give. Tending to yourself is a gift to you as well as your community and the world.


Dreaming, Realizing, & Tending A Creative Life

Drawing by Emma Schurink


Emma Schurink

Emma Schurink (she/her) is an empowerment coach, visual artist, and passionate organizer of projects and events that foster personal growth and thoughtful community. She has a curious approach to life and inspires others to honor their inner truths. She is drawn to the wild and creative energy in each of us and is a strong believer that empowerment starts within and echoes out into our relationships, communities, and beyond.

Madeline Fendrick

Madeline Fendrick (she/her) is a multimedia storyteller who believes listening and creating are two of the most powerful ways to love. She is a mom, partner, writer, poet, musician (Fendrick & Peck), performer, and visual artist who lives in a small town ribboned through by the Spirit River in Minnesota…a fitting metaphor, as she believes spirit meanders through everything.

Join Madeline and Emma in one of the most radical forms of love: the courageous embodiment of the creative life. With wisdom gleaned from the story of the Star Gazer, “unblocking experts,” and our creative journeys, we will inspire deep understanding of your own stories around creativity, guide you to move through limiting beliefs, and support you in tending to a creative project that you’ve been longing to show up for.

We will follow the trail of the Star Gazer as he solves the mystery of twelve pairs of worn out slippers and in doing so, becomes more than anyone believed possible. The story of the Star Gazer carries the following themes, as well as more insights, for our creative selves:

    • The False Stories We are Told – breaking the enchantments cast by others
    • The Lady in the Dream – receiving what you already have within you
    • Courting Creativity – learning the steps to the dance
    • Surrendering to Trust – keeping steady as you travel the uncertain path

Let’s change the narrative by dreaming our way back into our collective and personal stories. Too often, we are told to stop giving our attention to the stars and come back to reality, but the stars are shimmering whether we acknowledge them or not. That wonder filled gaze may not be as naive as it seems. We might have more resources than we think we do, both around us and within us.

Our world is calling on us to dream big, dream from our hearts, and create from within. For two months, we will give ourselves and each other the space to dream and the affirmation needed so that we don’t stop at the dream state but create from that place of deep knowing. Common threads and new insights emerge when creatives and stories gather. Will you come with us?
