My New E-Course : Wild Courage : Registration Now Open!


 


Hooray! Registration for the very first session of my new online course Wild Courage is now open! We will begin on September 9th, 2013, and I'd love for you to take part!

Over the past several months, I've been writing, researching, and collecting the best new materials and freshest interviews so I can share them with you now.

Come join me on this new adventure! Keep reading to learn more about what this new course has to offer...

Wild Courage is a brand new online course I created because I believe that fear is what most often gets in the way of developing our creative spirits - much more than any supposed lack of "talent," effort, money, luck, or desire. 

It's such a shame, because we all have so much to offer.



In Wild Courage, I'll share everything I know about overcoming fear, finding the courage to create, and expressing your work openly with the world.

To give you a giant boost of motivation and encouragement, I'm collecting 12 fresh, new, in-depth interviews from inspirational, talented women from around the world. 

You'll get my deepest personal stories along with practical information gathered from the very best resources to help you reach your creative goals.  



Wild Courage features exclusive guest interviews with:

  • Maira Kalman - celebrated illustrator, author, frequent contributor to The New Yorker magazine, illustrator of Michael Pollan's Food Rules
  • Khristian Howell - color, pattern, design and licensing expert, featured on HGTV, Real Simple, and Fresh Style 
  • more guests to be announced!


This amazing group of creative women will share their secrets with us about how they are now thriving as successful artists, authors, illustrators, and designers.



For my Wild Courage course, I've developed brand new exercises to identify and break through your personal barriers and fears that may be preventing you from reaching the next level in your work.


Our new topics include:
  • opening the doors to add more joy, freedom, and creativity to your life
  • using fear as your own personal creative compass
  • why "independence" at all costs can be overrated
  • learning to be your own creative muse and guardian angel
  • when to burn your bridges behind you, and when to cross over to the other side
  • avoiding digital burnout and promoting balance in your life
  • why there is no such thing as security in life, only opportunity
  • releasing your guilt (about everything!) and increasing productivity 
  • why having the courage to fail will help you to ultimately grow
  • how to ditch your expectations and make your biggest creative leaps ever
  • an expanded bibliography for more resources and future learning 
  • crafty fun creative activities, bonus videos, interviews - and much more!

To be quite honest, I see this course as a way to send private daily letters of encouragement to you my friends. 

I will tell you about my most intimate personal stories and struggles, and I hope that you will feel inspired to look deeper and discover your own dreams and creative spirit

I want to help you stretch your wings and feel stronger - and we'll work together to give you the confidence to create and release your work to the world.

You'll have the opportunity to connect and interact with like-minded women on our private Wild Courage website and in our private Wild Courage Facebook group. 

The supportive, community spirit found among course participants is always something special and it truly touches my heart!

During this brand new, first session of Wild Courage, I'd be honored to spend 6 weeks with you as we dig a bit deeper, release our creative blocks and fears, and celebrate your new found self-confidence and courage.




I'd love for you to join us at Wild Courage - my new unique online course experience - now open for registration.

You'll get six weeks of fun, inspiration, motivation, access to an international community of like-minded creative spirits, plus a giant boost of self-confidence for only $99.

Wild Courage FAQ

I've taken your Creative Courage course before, so will this course offer me anything new?

Everything in Wild Courage is completely new! A fresh website, brand new Monday videos, new personal stories from me, more fun crafty activities, and 12 sparkly fresh, new interviews with creative women from around the world.

I haven't taken your Creative Courage course yet - and I wonder if I will feel as though there is something I've missed? 

Wild Courage is created independently of the material in Creative Courage. There is no prerequisite of taking Creative Courage first, the courses simply compliment one another. It doesn't matter which course you take first.



There are so many creative e-courses out there now. What makes this course unique?

My Wild Courage e-course is very international, for women only, hands-on yet philosophical and inspirational, and it's full of colorful activities, resources, quotes, and 12 in-depth interviews with the most successful, amazing artists, writers, designers, coaches, and crafters who are thriving today.

Let's join together to share our ideas in a warm, supportive, private environment and give one another the generous gift of encouragement!

How does the Wild Courage e-course work?

The e-course runs for six weeks on a password protected private website. The course includes daily posts Monday through Friday with Monday videos, personal stories, inspiring interviews, and fun crafty activities.

The course website and the Facebook Wild Courage group are both private for course members and both give you opportunities to connect and share during the course.



Do I have to be an artist/writer/blogger to participate?

No, absolutely not. In fact, I happily welcome participants of all ages, professions, and stages of life! I love having a vibrant mix of "wild courage" seekers, dreamers, and doers.

We are all creative - but sometimes we all need a bit of extra help to break down our fears and encourage us to make the next leap forward.

Do I need to be in the class at a certain time? What if I'm going out of town?

The beauty of taking e-courses is that you decide when to participate in the class! You can integrate the class into your personal schedule and take the class in the comfort of your home.



But I live in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, South Africa, Asia, South America...

Wonderful! We will be happy to meet you regardless of where you live! In my past e-courses, I've welcomed participants from over 45 countries from around the world! One of the most marvelous things about the Internet is that we can all connect globally with another in an instant.

I am continually amazed at the ease of communication with other creative women from all corners of the globe - and online courses like this one are a perfect meeting place.

What will I need for the class?

All you need is access to a computer and an Internet connection.

A journal or a sketchbook would be nice, and perhaps a few crafty supplies for a couple of exercises, but these will be things that you will most likely have around the house, nothing extravagant.

I will be sending you colorful, illustrated PDFs as part of the course to download. If you would like to print these out, you will need access to a color printer.

But the main thing we need is you!



How much time will I need for the class each week?

This depends completely on you and how much time and energy you would like to devote to the class. I would allow for 15-20 minutes a day. If you prefer to do the course on the weekend, you should be able to complete the reading and exercises in an hour or two.

Is class size limited?

Yes, I limit the class size to give you more individual attention. Spaces tend to fill up quickly, so please sign up early to avoid disappointment.

How are you qualified to lead this e-course?

What a good question! For the past 17 years, I have been working as a professional artist, illustrator, and workshop leader. I know that it takes energy and courage to realize your creative dreams, but I also know that it is possible.

I'm an American who has been living in Germany for more than a decade. Life as an expat has forced me to train my "wild courage" muscles quite often through the years.

I had to learn to promote my work in a new language and thrive in a foreign culture. With much support and hard work, I was able to complete a Master's degree in Art at the University of the Arts in Berlin - in German.

I am giving you my personal pickings from the cream of the crop. I hope you will enjoy the materials I've gathered as much as I do!



What will I get from this course?

When you sign up for Wild Courage, you will receive:

  • inspirational, visually inspiring daily posts (Monday - Friday) on a private website to encourage, support, and help you start turning your creative dreams into reality
  • weekly video featuring my personal tips for each week's topic
  • colorful PDF worksheets to download, use, and keep forever
  • fun, helpful activities to help clarify your thoughts and strengthen your self-confidence

  • exclusive, in-depth interviews with an amazing group of 12 of today's top creative experts
  • private access to a community of international, like-minded, supportive creative explorers who share your wish of living a richer, fuller, more colorful and joyful life

What do former course participants have to say about my past online courses?

"It has been such a wonderful course. I have grown so much in this past seven weeks. I honestly cannot believe the changes I feel inside myself as a direct result of your words, exercises and interviews! I have made many wonderful connections and developed friendships with other creative soul sisters, which I am so grateful for! 

It has been the best money I have ever spent. I thank you, Stephanie, from the bottom of my courageous heart!" Kristen, USA

"I whole-heartedly recommend this course to any artist, or creative soul, whether they are creating work or not. It is a truly motivating course and I have enjoyed every moment. Stephanie's course has been an extremely informative, fun and soul searching experience. 

It has given me the opportunity to be part of a wonderfully supportive community of like-minded people. I have met so many interesting artists from all over the globe, all of whom have happily extended the hand of friendship to support and encourage each other in their artistic endeavours. Thank you Stephanie for this opportunity, it has been life-changing!" Denise, UK



"I'm only halfway through the course and I already feel like I've turned a corner in my courage to believe that the creative life I dream of can become reality.  Digging into Stephanie's collection of inspiring quotes on creativity and her in-depth artist interviews would, on it's own, already make this course worth the investment.  But on top of her careful research, Stephanie shares her own wealth of experience and provides practical exercises that are inspired by a deep insight into the emotional struggles many artists face.  

With her approachable style of teaching, Stephanie has created an e-course that is like an intensely personal coaching experience and a celebration of community among creative people who support and cheer each other on.  I can't wait to see where my newly-strengthened creative courage takes me from here!"  Sadee, Germany

****

"Stephanie is a lovely approachable and supportive presence throughout, always ready to answer your questions and help you further your creative endeavors. The interviews with visiting (successful) artists are inspiring and encouraging (it's always fun to hear the 'behind the scenes' story).Whatever stage you are at on your creative path, I feel you will gain immensely from the Creative Courage Course."  Helen, New Zealand/USA

****

"Stephanie Levy's Creative Courage is truly about courage. It's about finding the courage to be yourself and follow the murmurings of your heart. 

Creative Courage is about connecting, finding balance, cleaning out and letting go. CC is about creating your life without fear. The exercises are fun and validating. The interviews are mesmerizing ... so many different stories and paths. 

Stephanie's words and Monday videos make you feel as if someone really cares about you and your dreams." Mary, USA
