CCA Coach Profiles

Starla J. King

Focus: Writing, Time & Energy Management for Creatives, Empowerment through finding and expressing your voice
Business Name: OutWrite Living, LLC
Location: Philadelphia, PA. United States
E-mail: sjking@outwriteliving.com
Phone: 703-626-1459
Web Site: http://OutWriteLiving.com
Philosophy:

My writing coaching, creativity coaching, and life approach are all based on the following 5 Beliefs:

  1. We are all creative beings.
  2. We all have an internal source of higher energy, inspiration, and wisdom — known as creativity.
  3. Our best work happens when we engage our heart, soul, and mind, and listen to our bodies.
  4. Inspiration loves and needs practicality.
  5. The most direct route to opening up creative expression is a peaceful path.

I work from an appreciative and self-compassionate perspective, and will encourage you to do the same.

I believe that your beauty, your shadows, your talents, your perceived shortcomings, your needs – everything and anything that you are is part of your creative power and perfection.

I believe that the secret to accessing our creative energy is not in the adding of pressure and demand for performance and production; it is instead in the taking away of things that block our creative energy’s path.  My work, then, focuses on strengthening the gentle, nimble, and practical parts of ourselves to enhance our creative flow.
