Creating Transformational Workshops


The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves. — Carl Jung



Will others benefit from your insights?

I will help you turn your dissertation or book into an inspiring, interactive workshop that transforms and empowers participants, no matter what the subject matter is. 

For the past sixteen years, I have given over 3500 workshops and classes in creative writing, screenwriting and healing to hundreds of people from around the world.  With my background in theater, film and TV, spirituality and human rights I will guide you step by step in the creation of a unique workshop.

We can work in person, or via Skype.

Fee: US$ 1000 to read your dissertation and have two – 1.5 hour sessions.

“I worked privately with Elana on Skype, and it was a very productive and creative experience.  Elana identified the mythic images within my dissertation and helped me develop workshops around those ideas.  She was a very positive and accepting person to work with.  The participants in the workshop Elana helped me create engaged with the material in a way that was meaningful to all of us.”   Susan Clements Negley, Jungian Analyst
