Hello and welcome!
I'm Sara Saltee and I help people understand who they are as creators so they can stop agonizing over what they are meant to do and start making the contributions they are uniquely designed to make to the healing and evolution of our world.
My clients work with me to claim their creative identity, orchestrate a life that honors and supports the kind of creator they are, and practice navigating the emotional, spiritual, and practical challenges of the creating process.
Using my original Creative Constellation framework and tools, we explore the juicy intersection of creativity and life purpose, map the coordinates of your genius (however complex your genius might be), and start trusting the inner navigation system that is already trying to steer you toward a life big enough for who you really are.
I also offer Creative Constellation training and consultation to coaches and other practitioners seeking beautiful new tools to enrich their work with clients and groups.
The creative practice I personally turn to for unadulterated joy and spiritual wellness is making assemblages (a fancy word for chunky collages) mostly in the form of shrines and shadowboxes. I share that journey here, too.
Thanks for visiting, I'm glad you're here!

Happy New Year everyone! It's time to talk about everyone's favorite topic, "The Void!" No, I don't mean that place in your refrigerator where the fudge used to be, I mean that passage between past and future when you are no longer here, but not exactly there yet either. Find out what The Void has to do with creativity, and learn what the ancient Romans knew that we've forgotten.
As creators, we are always facing a headwind of fear and, to keep going, we have to find our way back to love again and again and again. However practiced we are at this, let's admit that 2017 brought all of us particularly powerful temptations to succumb to fear. This is my love letter to all of you who chose love.
How do you lighten up in the darkest month of the year and make art out of December's mayhem? I have some thoughts involving Bill Murray, some toddlers, a Post Office haiku, and a whole lot of naps.
Feel like your creative project is taking For-Fucking-Ever? Need some inspiration to shore up your eroding patience and keep your creeping discouragement at bay? Lin-Manuel Miranda has you covered. (With a bonus creative confidence-booster from the most wonderful little warty toad you've ever seen.)
How a fixation on "creativity" is leading us down the wrong paths...and some related words I'd MUCH rather talk about instead.
In honor of the publication of my first FREE ebook, "How Are You Creative?" here's an excerpt, a teaser, an amuse bouche if you will, in which I describe five different ways that NOT having a way to talk about the diversity and complexity of our creativities can really bite us in the ass.
Seven months after the launch of the Creative Constellation Card Deck, here's what I've heard, what I've learned, and what I've decided to do about it. (Also, find out how processing feedback while house-hunting is like eating gumbo on a roller-coaster.)
