"Is This All there Is?"- Podcast with Katherine Hart
Enjoy Helen’s ability to awaken us all back to our wild and creative selves as she opens us to the artist within each and every one of us - even when we have forgotten that we are talented and creative souls always yearning to express ourselves through our art….whatever that may be and mean for each one of us!
Join me as we journey through both the inner and outer transformations that art can bring forward. Helen shares with us the stories of how many of her clients have (re)gained creative confidence and discovered their ability to connect to “who they really are” which Helen states is part of her overall mission. Many of her students have gone on to alter and change their professions, write books and bravely become professional artists.
How can we explore the healing power of creativity? Is it true that we are all creative in our unique, different ways? In this episode of The Frequency of Creativity, host Melinda Harr Curley is joined by guest Helen Bradley. Helen is a transformational creativity coach, an artist, and the owner of an art studio. She believes that creativity is not about genes. Instead, it is instilled within us, and we must delve deeper into different areas of our life to find it. She amplifies how each of us must embrace creativity by going with the flow of curiosity and exploration. Join Melinda and Helen to discuss art, energy, and listening into a deeper voice to unleash creativity.

Meet Helen Bradley: Professional Artist, Creativity Life Coach and Expressive Art Facilitator
One of my students, Lori Cash Richards, shared about her experience taking my workshop "The Artist's Way with an Expressive Art Flair" in her new book "Letting the Upside In." She shares:
"I participated in a workshop recently based on the book “The Artist’s Way”. It was written by another one of my heroes, Julia Cameron. I have not done any art in many years aside from my collages. Yet when Helen Bradley, my inspiring instructor, put materials in front of me, I created something. I set aside any fear that came up and focused instead on what she placed before me. My curiosity about what might get created carried me right on through to the other side.
Helen taught me how to create what wanted to come into form by asking questions of my art like, “What do you need from me?” “How can I serve You?” Then once what ever wanted to be created came into form, Helen taught me to ask it, “Who are You?” and “What message do you have to share with me?” The possibility had never occurred to me before—to ask my art what it needed from me, how I could serve it. I wonder if that’s what the universe does."
