JESSICA R. SCHULLER
My connection to creativity
Jessica’s had a connection to creativity since childhood. This still remains true, however she’s since developed an even deeper understanding of what it means to be creative. This awareness started to take shape during a very specific time in her life.
For several years Jessica dealt with debilitating chronic pain. It left her feeling isolated and distant from the world. She kept much of this to herself, as she struggled to articulate what she was experiencing. It was during this time that art started to take on a new meaning. What was once an outlet for design only, became sacred ground for healing. Creativity gave Jessica a sense of purpose, when much of it had been lost. It provided her the ability to express herself without concern for words. It was a refuge from the pain, a place of peace and calm. Ultimately creativity helped to shift her health, leaving a deep and lasting impression. It made her aware that this same potential was available to each of us.
Jessica has since devoted herself to the practice of creativity through coaching. She’s passionate about restoring its value within society, and believes it’s one of our greatest allies in the pursuit of a more balanced, joyous, and fulfilled life.

"I enjoyed every exercise, with each week I explored them thoughtfully. But the best part was the hour with you that gave clarity, simplicity, & often a helpful perspective. I loved being introduced to new avenues of self exploration. I was thankful for your knowledgeable, calm, & attentive ability to let me "wander" now & then, and still bring our conversations to new insight."
