Creating Space

calling all renegades

Are you ready to make a change, reinvent yourself, make time for self care and want the company of other like-minded women who are making space for self and creativity?

Are you on the cusp of seeing your potential to be a better version of yourself and you want to know how to do this?

You don’t need to be an artist or have fancy art equipment. All you need is a journal, some pens or pencils (or watercolour crayons), and a willingness to stretch yourself and think outside the box. That’s it.

This program is for you if...

  • You want to make time to create, a space to feel and think.
  • You want to use your art and creativity (journaling, sketching) to find a sense of purpose, to express your inner self, reach and connect with others.
  • You want to develop a practice for getting unblocked.
  • You know you are worth the effort.

But you struggle with taking the time for yourself or creating a consistent pattern or habit.

It’s time to create space for yourself and be part of a fun, supportive community devoted to doing exactly that!

I’m here to share my process for creating, for getting unblocked and to answer your questions and guide your process. Come spend time with me!

Hi, I'm Meryl Cook

artist, author, speaker and facilitator

In 2016 I launched my current business and have taught creativity workshops across Canada and the US (and online since 2020). I started with the fibre arts and journaling community and then added working with leaders and their teams, helping people to de-stress, connect and articulate a vision for their organization.

Regardless of which hat I’m wearing – team engagement, facilitation, speaking, writing, sharing my art – my why is to inspire others to connect with their joy and creativity. When our creativity is unblocked, we can embrace a renewed sense of purpose and experience increased energy and focus.

In my workshops, people tell me they need help with creating time to do their art, journal, and just take time to think. They want something beyond a one-hour or three-hour workshop. And they want to work more with me.

This is why I’ve formed Creating Space – because we are all worth it. Worth taking time for self-care and creativity.

Meryl Cook Engagement by Design

Here's how it works...

You'll receive journaling and design tips from me each week.

These tips will be designed to encourage you to take a few minutes each day to draw, sketch and write. Expect them every Thursday.

Plus I'll be hosting a 1-hour, monthly, live session on Zoom.

We will take time and space to connect with one another and to nourish our creative souls.

"I love our Creating Space live sessions. I always leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated."

Each live session will have a theme (such as how to create moments of joy and a sense of ease when life is busy), as well as time to ask what’s in your heart and share current projects and design ideas. In case you miss a session – or want to listen again – these monthly sessions will be recorded and can be accessed only by members. Monthly sessions will be held on the last Thursday each month at 1pm Atlantic Time.

As a bonus, you'll also receive a coupon code that allows you to save 10% in my shop as long as you're a member of Creating Space.

Here's what you've been telling me...

  • how to develop a wellness habit
  • time and space to delve deeper

"Oh Meryl, I love being a part of this community. I love the prompts to make us dig deep and search within. Looking forward to some down time to really look inside on this one ... Looking forward to our next live session."

"I felt heard and supported. It has had an impact that is rippling out into other areas of my life."

"I was excited to see your prompt today. I love adventure and it made me realize how much I have missed it this last few years. Lots of changes in my life and when I read your prompt it made me realize I need to get adventuring once again."

"Creating Space has been a very liberating process for me. I realize my creative process doesn't have to be perfect. And, I have access to amazing creatives that I would never have access to otherwise."

"Thank you for creating such a warm and friendly network and for all your personal support and encouragement this year."
