I believe that the middle is where the Good Stuff Happens

I think deep down many of us know we have something unique that makes us different.  Maybe it's the way we see the world, maybe its in our listening ear, or maybe it's the talents that we humbly shrug off.

The challenge for us Curious Creatives is usually not a lack of ideas or passions, the challenge comes when we are trying to make sense of our many desires, talents, odd hobbies, and skill sets and desire some way to bring it all together.  #multipassionate

We hope that we can someday make sense of all our many passions.  We hope that our value will be seen and we can finally let our guard down and just be ourselves. 

Creative work requires us to be vulnerable and sometimes putting our work out into the world can feel scary and overwhelming.

This overwhelm can lead at worst to forgoing our creative talents all together, or continuing to create alone in the closet where no one can experience the joy of our work.  I want to help people feel safe enough to express and share their art and creative talents.  

The truth is most of us are in some sort of Messy Middle, the space between having it mostly figured out and not knowing where to begin.  

I believe this creative middle is where we make change not only in ourselves but in the world.  It is the space in which we learn and grow into the shoes we were meant to fill.

Hi I'm Maring

I help Multipassionate Creative growth seeking women and WOC awaken what their soul craves and take action in a fun and playful way. 

I've worked with hundreds of people exploring the middle space as an aerial bootcamp instructor, through my acupuncture practice, or as a Creative Coach. 

I've watched as they have embraced their light within the shadow and created big change in their life and in business.  

I believe that when we feel seen and find a safe space to share our work we feel free to express our most authentic selves. 


 

The middle is where I have lived most of my life.   Born to an ex catholic nun and an almost buddhist monk, my parents believed my sister and I could choose our own religion if we wanted one.  

This was maybe the start of finding that I fit in somewhere in between a mish mash of spiritual beliefs that belonged to nowhere.

Maybe this was a fore shadowing of how I would help others navigate the middle spaces of their lives.

In my younger years I lived in a middle class white neighborhood and my life looked very similar to my peers in many ways.  But at home my parents also taught us about our cultural roots (Japanese, Filipino, and Native American), traditions, foods and customs.  

I felt at an early age that I didn’t quite fit one particular mold, and had that feeling of being in the undefinable middle.

I struggled a lot as a kid of wondering where I belonged.  

For me I found a place of belonging in creativity, music, art and nature.  There I could get lost in time and I felt a true belonging.  

Creativity became the threadline I have traced back in my life as a staple of my day to day.  For me creativity is simply my way of living, it is the place I find the most ease.

As a deeply curious person I have dabbled in many arenas and tried many different hats on.  From being a piano teacher, to performing circus arts, or volunteering as a chaplin at a hospital.  This curiosity has led me on many adventures like living on an island for a summer, to backpacking around Europe, and starting a aerial bootcamp business. 

One of my superpowers is being flexible and adaptable to people and different situations and having the willingness to try.  I love learning about what motivates people, how they find their success, what gets them up in the morning, and what their heart most desires.  

What I’ve found is that only in pursuing the middle path do I find the richness of inspiration, creativity, enthusiasm, excitement, and peace.  

It is my intention and wish is to help other feel safe and seen in their creative journey so that they can answer the call of their heart with ease, joy, playfulness and enthusiasm.
