Organizational Creative Capacity Workshops
The creative potential of an organization is in its people. Our workshops provide research-backed and tested methods to leverage the creativity of teams and build organizational culture that fosters innovation.
People are more creative when they work together, but groups rarely reach their creative potential. This workshop applies research on best practices for brainstorming, group flow, and cross-cultural dialogue to improve the productivity, motivation and rapport of teams.
The role of a creative leader is not to have all the ideas, but to foster an environment where everyone can have ideas. This workshop provides leadership training and customizable structures based on case studies for cultivating an organization-wide culture of innovation.
To create a better future we need to imagine alternatives to the present. Your organizational mission and vision is an articulation of what is possible and what is at stake. This workshop employs divergent thinking processes to envision your organization’s strongest impact.
Community Creative Capacity Workshops
The success of an idea is determined by the people. Our workshops provide training from the fields of conflict resolution and community-based design on creative ways to co-create generative solutions.
Change happens when people feel heard. In order to solve any problem, you must first understand its impact. This workshop provides training in empathetic listening — a proven tool for clarifying communication, fostering trust and resolving conflicts.
The success of an initiative depends on community buy-in; the key is developing ongoing relationships that integrate community engagement throughout the process. This workshop discusses the do’s and don’ts of designing effective community engagement plans.
Asset-Based Community Development
Sustainable change comes from within communities. This workshop guides participants through an asset-mapping process to identify existing strengths and resources in a community that can be leveraged to greater capacity.
Individual Creative Capacity Workshops
It takes creativity to respond to life’s challenges. Our workshops provide real-life application of research on eminent creative people and developmental psychology for crafting a life that works for you.

Creative Work Life
Intrinsic motivation is the basis of a creative work-life. That said, creativity is still hard work. Learn more about your inherent creative processes and develop practices that can boost your motivation, productivity and happiness at work.
To set career goals, you need to have a strong understanding of your values. This workshop guides you through determining your core values, provides resources on finding jobs that match your ambitions, and helps you develop a career visioning plan for assessing right fit.

Questioning Cultural Conditioning
Creating new realities requires awareness of what is. Questioning Cultural Conditioning is a community of meditation practitioners committed to mindfully engaging with how power systems affect us internally and interpersonally. Through guided meditation and community discussion, we build our awareness of how systemic structures such as race, class and gender manifest in our bodies, leading us to take action with more intention. Topics have included white supremacy culture, scarcity mindset, grieving the loss of black lives to police violence and navigating political divides.
Trust Studies Poetry Series
Creativity can be a guidepost, a way to tap into what’s real and respond to our moment-to-moment experience. The Trust Studies Poetry Series is a contemplative creative practice on listening to how the body experiences the world. It was born from a need to let go of doubt and cultivate intuition through trusting the body. Community workshops provide guidance and support on engaging in this practice and developing somatic awareness of our body’s wisdom.
