I'm Tara Brennan, the creator of Empassioned Living Now, a personal development coaching program, and Art from the Heart, process painting and creativity workshops.
I received my Certified Co-Active Coach credential through the Coaches Training Institute in 2007 and am a ICF certified ACC. I am also a certified yoga teacher, therapeutic horseback riding instructor, a StrengthsFinders “Activator” and lover of big dogs and small cats.
I created Empassioned Living Now and Art from the Heart over 15 years ago while in the middle of a major career/life transition. When I tapped into my passion for supporting people in realizing their superpowers, I was discovering my own, being a coach. I have been, and continue to be, on the journey of creating the life I want to lead which is both exciting and terrifying and it takes courage and support which is why I am here. To be supported and to support those who are on a similar journey.
I believe in Creativity. As a student and facilitator of process painting for over 30 years, I have experienced the power of opening up to creativity. Art from the Heart process painting workshops are tools in my coaching toolbox (or paints on my coaching pallet) that allow color and form to help uncover one's dreams. Painting, or any creative expression, is a way to unpack the stories that are keeping us “safe” or “playing small.” It allows the space to get quiet and curious about what dreams are hidden deep inside and will come out to play with color. By allowing the creative process to peel back the layers of stories, we get to discover the freedom of our dreams and see what is possible. It is a powerful way to get connected with your true self and create a new path to skip down.
