Call to Artists
What is arising in your work, and who are your champions?
- Are you looking to cultivate a devoted following and to find powerful representation?
- Do you know how to build the perceived value of your work effectively?
- Would you like to manage your time in a way that supports your creativity?
- How well developed is your capacity for the discipline that is required to manifest anything
- How well do you respond to the call of the work itself?
- Would you like to opening more fully and consistently to “the muse”?
- What would happen if were guided by inspiration and grounded in practical action?
Working the creative process—getting to know it better and to use that knowledge effectively to develop discipline is at the heart of the coaching I do with artists and creative entrepreneurs. Then there is finding and forging new ways to place your work in the marketplace and promote it successfully—taking the work to the next level of recognition. These are essential aspects of the challenges that artists generally bring to me. At the outset, I ask that you begin to see your Self as an instrument of creativity and we set out to hone that instrument. Everything we take up —from the practical, to the sublime, to the seemingly ridiculous—flows from that.

Michele Ratte, Artist / Inventor
I began working with Lyedie at a point when I was finding it harder and harder to connect with my creative spirit, causing a downward spiral that was radiating out into my life. Her complete attention and fascination with my concerns, paired with her knowledge of the human psyche and belief in the realm of possibility has spurred me to rediscover and embrace even the smallest sparks within – honoring the obstacles and . . . now I’m stepping beyond them.
SO, Artist, Brattleboro VT
I have been working with Lyedie Geer for about 11 months. Her coaching style and skills have been highly compatible within my heart and out in the world as an artist. Lyedie works from the inside out, then back again. Tears, laughter, spirit work, and rebellion are all part of the mix. I'm seeing my painting grow and more important, feeling myself emerge with more confidence and love.
BF, Artist, Putney VT
I would love a follow up workshop. Lyedie was so calming and provided a wealth of information and helpful ideas, very applicable for all of us with such hectic lives, and stressed out selves. Those who took this class were really needing to find meaningful ways to create more order and calm in their lives to support their creativity and they found that here. She surpassed our expectations, we loved it!
Excellent presentation of cutting edge theory—then brought straight into how it is relevant and applicable in my life. A brilliantly designed day of learning; I leave here refueled and ready to approach my studio in a much more creative, productive and fulfilling way.
