Wild Ember Sparking!

While I usually separate my just-for-pleasure blog, Beauty Along the Road, from my business blog Emerald Mountain Sanctuary, I felt nudged to introduce my readers to the business side of things.  There might just be a few people out there who are looking for exactly what I am offering.

If you are working on a long-term project, you know the challenges of remaining committed, of facing the inevitable questions of purpose and worth, the need for continuous inspiration and ability to consistently dip into your creative process, and accountability.

In the past, I have had the honor to support writers, artists, and entrepreneurs in their projects – working on a memoir, creating an artistic portfolio, establishing a thriving business, and consciously developing a new lifestyle after a major disruptive life event.

Three years ago, I created a creative project coaching workshop (called Creative Spark then) and participants met at my house in the remote mountains of Virginia.  During the second year, COVID hit and we had to move partially online, and partially to porch meetings.  COVID was my nudge to place the entire workshop series online so that location no longer presents an obstacle.


I am thrilled to announce the 2021 Creative Project Coaching workshop, Wild Ember Sparking. This monthly workshop series runs from March through October 2021 and assists you in getting your creative project off the ground, with clarity and purpose, and then supports your ongoing project. Learn the techniques you need to dive deeper into your creative process and get the work done by setting realistic, achievable goals and being held accountable by an experienced coach.

If you are curious, please check out the details:  https://emeraldmountainsanctuary.com/creative-project-coaching/

Even if you don’t take the workshop, there’s a free pdf download with nature-inspired creativity exercises when you sign up for the newsletter.  These exercises are also being published this month by Psychology Today.  Click here for the first of two essays.

Enjoy and let me hear your feedback.

  1. It looks like you live in a beautiful area Annette. Kudos on continuing to transform your offering. Do you have accommodations for visitors who just want to visit the area? Not necesarily for your workshops?


  2. Dear Annette, I am so glad that you shared your business blog, I had no clue about your Sanctuary, I just know you through your amazing photography, so I am very happy to get to know and discover the “other” side of your talent and your great mission. I just signed up as a follower, This place looks divine and I wish I would live closer. Danke liebe Annette.


  3. Just what I was looking for this morning! I am sharing your love and excitement for creativity!
