creative regeneration activation
(one-to-one reboots, intensive coaching, individual sessions)
your natural state
is a joyful state
that generates energy
you can know what to do
and do it without impediment
'it is quite remarkable to have someone dedicate six full months of her time, attention, and expertise to your growth and well being. Not to mention the wealth of resources Sarah provides. It feels incredibly lush. And nourishing at a deep, primordial level' (kim noriega)
this activation is for you if you'd like an intensive, full-on personal experience curated just for you, with plenty of one to one support
you'll be equipped with the tools to:
* step out of mental sludge and overwhelming emotional states fast
* move swiftly aside when internal judgements arise, prevent any mental chatter from impeding you, drop your identity and all stories - and experience just being and doing, directly
* access the implicit wisdom of everything there is, within your own body
* enable what's relevant to come forward, hence know what you really want, what your purpose is, and what the next step is
* move into a state of synchronisation, in which you feel that your body mind and soul are all one
* unleash your freedom and raw, juicy energy, without getting bogged down in identity, analysis or any kind of story
and if you fully engage in the process, the chances are that by the end of it you will be
* blissed out as a default state and pretty much unstoppable!
'ideas for creative projects are flowing like an undammed river. my anxiety—which like my insomnia was chronic—has completely resolved. painting on paper feels too small now so i've started painting a mural on my studio walls. a few nights ago i was dancing and painting and singing and i realized what i was feeling—BLISS'. (kim noriega)
'sarah i'd describe as one of today's rare authentic shamans - shaman used in the broadest sense here, not as in someone pretending to be a native american, but someone who accompanies people down into the depths, to emerge into the fluidity that engenders a joyful life'

why might i need the creative regeneration process?
you might be tired, burnt out, stressed, confused, somehow unable to know what it is that you really want/need to do, or simply unable to do it. you might be bewildered or ground down by the changes in the world and how they have affected your own life and the life of your wider community
you may want to unblock natural, spontaneous action, clear mental sludge, move past habitual thinking that trips you up and emotional patterns that keep you stuck
this process removes the need to obey, rebel, or go into denial about the internal censors, critics and the whole crowd inside who tell you that you can't do it or are not good enough.
Within a week of beginning the Intensive, I felt more grounded and calm than I had in years. With Sarah’s ongoing support, I began untangling the knots of behavior and belief that had landed me in my current state of depletion in the first place. The “AHA” moments came quickly and continuously. With Sarah’s insight and guidance, they’ve become the basis for fundamental change—change I can build on. (kim noriega)
creative regeneration is about release
back into the natural order of things
once released from your own compulsion to judge yourself, with an uncluttered mind and ability to act, you're able to live freely and to hear what the next step really is in your life. again, in small everyday senses, and also in the big picture. the world certainly needs more people who know what they are doing and are capable of doing it, without burning out.
the four element process covers every level, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.
first of all you need to drop three major drains on your energy - maintaining stories and judgements, trying to change, hide, or delete your feelings, then managing the anxiety created by those activities. this meditation is the gentle, softening, opening kind, that shifts your relationship to your whole being and also enables you to feel the natural flow of energy stir - and use it. taoist and buddhist influenced, the meditation leads to a sense that you are all of one piece, all here, and this in itself is a very great, even miraculous, pleasure
then you have a space in which to sense what simply couldn't be heard before in the commotion of thoughts and feelings. moving into focusing, you find, through paying attention to your body in a gentle, specific way, that all the information you need, more than could ever be consciously available to you, is in your felt sense of situations, and extremely precise, personal and undeniable insights and ways forward just come to you. the felt sense responds, and you can get real shifts in your situations - not just in your head!
then it's time to start creating. freewriting is total freedom of the mind experienced live, and you get to experience a state of pure production and go direct - skilfully bypassing the urges to edit, judge, criticise or control.
lastly the sensual process of intuitive painting really gets the energy moving. it creates a responsive object, made of your bodily felt senses and intuitions, and gives you an experience of the creative process that is transferable to the rest of your life. it's a dance of intuition and action, inner and outer. it heals.
you step into a sensual dance of creating and living, trusting the painting to tell you the next step. it does not have to look good, be good, or look like anything else. neither do you!
I will admit that initially the six-month commitment felt a bit daunting. But, I trust Sarah and knew she’d have chosen the timeframe intentionally. Now, a week into my third month, I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed! And, while I’m not surprised by the results—Sarah is hands-down the best coach I’ve ever worked with—I am frankly gobsmacked by the rapidity of their arrival! When I started this work only 2 ½ short months ago I was completely burned out. I had no resilience and little tolerance for life’s vicissitudes. My nerves were shot. I had no desire to create—anything. Life felt Sisyphean rather than joyful. Not exactly what I’d envisioned for this new chapter of my life.
During our first Skype session, Sarah and I mapped out an initial plan of action. She prepared a guide for me based on our Skype talk and then showered me with resources including a meditation she created just for me. The phrase “an embarassment of riches” comes to mind.
Within a week of beginning the Intensive, I felt more grounded and calm than I had in years. With Sarah’s ongoing support, I began untangling the knots of behavior and belief that had landed me in my current state of depletion in the first place. The “AHA” moments came quickly and continuously. With Sarah’s insight and guidance, they’ve become the basis for fundamental change—change I can build on.
Within two weeks, my chronic insomnia began to abate. Within three, I started to notice that I was singing and dancing—while doing the dishes. I found delight in cooking dinner. (If you knew me, you’d understand how profound this is.)
As an aside, I’d like to take a moment here to point out that this is all happening in the midst of a global pandemic!
I found myself naturally taking better care of myself, connecting with my body for the first time in an eternity, noticing that I actually didn’t want coffee but rather a cup of tea this morning, that my body wanted to be out in the sunshine more often. I began noticing that after a too-long Zoom meeting I was out of balance (too much mental work) and needed a walk or some kind of movement. These things sound so basic, but having neglected self-care for so long, they’d become elusive to me.
At two months in, I started feeling INSPIRED. Sarah showered me with a whole new batch of gifts and at that point—I guess I hadn’t read her description very well—I realized that she was going to do this EVERY month. (I’d been saving up my Reiki session, not realizing she’d planned one each month!)
it is quite remarkable to have someone dedicate six full months of her time, attention, and expertise to your growth and well being. Not to mention the wealth of resources Sarah provides. It feels incredibly lush. And nourishing at a deep, primordial level.
I’m now nearly at the half-way mark. Ideas for creative projects are flowing like an undammed river. My anxiety—which like my insomina was chronic—has completely resolved. Painting on paper feels too small now so I’ve started painting a mural on my studio walls. A few nights ago I was dancing and painting and singing and I realized what I was feeling—BLISS.
Sarah is a genius. Full stop.
Creative Regeneration isn’t magic. It is the culmination of decades of work brought to fruition into a process that works like magic. The Creative Regeneration Intensive isn’t magic either. It is Sarah’s expertise and attention lavished on you, focused on you—just you—like the beam of a beautiful laser for a luxurious amount of time. I do concede that it feels like magic. I can only imagine how it will feel after six whole months! I’ll let you know.

who will be guiding me?
you'll be guided by me, sarah luczaj (MBACP, Phd). i combine two decades of running a thriving therapy practice, the skills of a reiki master, doctoral research on the intersections of therapy, buddhist philosophy and focusing, decades of practice and training in buddhist and taoist traditions, the creative juices of a writer, poet, intuitive artist and musical collaborator, and the fire and focus needed to co-found the terrealuma healing refuge.
I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.
all this is at your service.
so you can relax in the knowledge that, although this activation is not aimed at digging into pain, or analysis, i'm well equipped to deal with anything uncomfortable that may be stirred up for you.
the buddhist and taoist practices and perspectives i live and teach are central to getting your 'self' out of the way and getting energy moving.
the reiki i offer is deeply grounded in the buddhist and energy-cultivation roots of the originator, usui's, practice, rather than the more new age variations which have since developed. i use chanting and sound. the sessions will recharge you in a way which makes the physical and the non-physical feel like the same thing.
writing's been my passion since i first formed letters, i am a poet and writer but that doesn't mean i'm here to judge your writing - it just helps that the process is natural to me. if you are a writer and you're blocking yourself in any way - i can help.
all my life i've meditated (as a child not having a clue what it was), understood my life through feelings in my body, written to release the thoughts in my mind and painted when i needed to just feel good. these are the ways i have instinctively plugged in to the source when in all kinds of distress, and now i have also acquired knowledge, skill and depth of life experience - i'm highly motivated to share them and their radical effects.
[the] process of using painting, writing and meditation to nourish the inner voice of invention was a powerful gift. under her guidance, i was able to reconnect with some long quieted parts of my creative soul. sarah's rare blend of knowledge, spirituality, generosity, artistry and humour foster a uniquely gentle space for regeneration'

what does the activation consist of?
i offer three different journeys, six months, 3 months, or a set of individual sessions, in which you'll be self-directed like never before, but not alone. we work together to find the most precise expression of your individual needs, and do nothing which does not directly address them.
this is the salient difference between this journey and the group workshops i offer.
* a 90 minute starting session in which we confer in order to set up an individual plan, which will involve a workbook/playbook, a reading list, a playlist, an audio meditation, and a suggested structure/ unstructure for you as required, taking you through the process in a way tailored to your needs.
*every month i will provide another workbook and set of resources for you
* a bi-weekly 60 minute call by zoom. these may be of a check-in and consulting nature, or i can facilitate live meditation, focusing, writing or painting sessions for you.
* a 40 minute monthly reiki session, distance healing, we may be connected for this on zoom if you choose
* unlimited access and contact on voxer, mon-fri in working hours, we can send voice messages to each other or written messages, which allows for a great deal of spontaneity and flow, you can share tough spots or aha moments as they happen and i will respond. i can also provide regular reminders and support, if you like
* a monthly personal audio meditation specially crafted for you
* the creative regeneration e-book or hard copy
if you want to talk about this or have any questions at all, please email me at , and we can arrange a time to have a chat.
this journey-style relies on personal resonance, chemistry and trust, so the initial chat is a vital step, we both need to be sure it will work.

payment plan: 6 monthly payments of £540
3 month journey: £1,900
payment plan: 3 monthly payments of £320
