We just had Clare join our team for a session. It was great! Her calm questioning alongside her warmth and enthusiasm gave us a solid foundation to work from. She helped us slow down, listen to each other, explore more deeply, and tease out shared ideas and vision for the project. I would recommend her light touch facilitation !! [dynamic coaching]
I have had the privilege of working with Clare Hedin since early 2019, and continue to be blown away by the power and beauty of her work. The unique way in which she brings together sound, music, and processes for healing and connecting deeply has helped me to embrace my own identity as a group process “artist.” I’m also grateful for her ongoing contributions to the Now What?! global gatherings, which have been extremely generative. She played a key role, for example, in the Sonic Spring offering that emerged as the highlight of the March-April 2020 gathering. Clare is truly a delight to work with and a blessing to all those who encounter her, especially those who work at the intersection of art and social change. [Ben, Now What?!

Clare has helped me access and nurture my leadership gifts and find my voice in a very different way. She creates such an intensely supportive and creative space that you cannot resist but deep dive with her and see what happens. It has been wonderful to see myself grow personally, spiritually, and ministerially. Interestingly, I came to Clare to become a better public speaker and minister, and I have received much, much more. Our appointments have helped me grow my ministry vision as well as give me practical ways to develop the ministry itself. Clare has a wonderfully organic way of working with you and being open to whatever comes up in the space as you journey together. So as the creativity abounds you never know what juicy treat you may leave with, and perhaps something you did not even think you needed.
The equation for a perfect presentation is simplicity plus a loveable presenter; a smile that can make people remember and a charm that links your ideas to theirs… certain people have this charm… it is like a talent; people such as Martin Luther King Jr, Barack Obama… have the ability to get up on a microphone and engulf people in what they are saying, no matter what. These people come around one in a generation, but they speak as if they are speaking through you. It is like watching Picasso paint or Mozart compose. The pure brilliance of the art form is beautiful; and that is what Steve Jobs did for Apple. And what you did for our class. Thank you.
As a teacher, Clare has an edge, an advantage, in that she has comprehensive experience in all aspects that this class covers: healing, energy awareness, communication and presentation skills, teaching and creative arts (she is an active artist), and founded two small businesses of her own. On the one hand she gives a lens, and an opportunity, to explore how to best move through the world of business, maintaining one’s edge of creativity & innovation and, on the other, she extends this training into the field of one’s life… I recommend her highly to anyone lucky enough to hire her or work with her. She offers a keen ability to spot opportune moments in a group or individual setting and to help people perceive the highest potential of what is possible and then actually get there.
