Sharing da love

  • I can’t tell you how excited I am about painting, my life, my creativity, my world, etc….  This has really gotten my energy flowing.  When I’m painting I’m working out all my problems of the day…but the beauty is that I’m not thinking and analyzing…I just paint and end up at a better place.   I’m really amazed at how energized and excited I feel about everything …. who knew just using that other side of my brain could make such a difference.

  • I am a professional nutritional consultant and have been trying for years to find a way to experience more calm and less stress in my life. In the first week of the Artist Within program I experienced the peace for which I had been searching. The simple creativity exercises showed me instantly how the key to the calmness was in accessing my right brain. I am enjoying my little daughter more, am less stressed with my husband gone so much AND feel this new, incredible BALANCE in my life. I have done yoga and meditation, but nothing that compares to the results I have experienced from your Creatively Fit Program! Thank you!

  • I want to thank you for everything you have taught me and for the push you have given me to paint. I am painting and creating on a regular basis now, and I feel so good about that. I just did the paper mask face in your book, it turned out pretty cool.  Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

  • Whitney’s high-energy, focused, and creative workshop kept us rapt and interested. She was engaging, informative, and fun while introducing new ideas and alternative ways of thinking to create different methods for me, personally, to approach my business plan and writing. I used several of her ideas immediately, which resulted in a beneficial behavioral and attitude change in my son, and bought her book after her workshop. I read and/or work an exercise from it before I even open my email Inbox every business day, and my son and I use her suggestions for arts and crafts exercises to “get creatively fit” and spend time together. I highly recommend Whitney for whatever capacity any business or organization desires of her.  August 20, 2009

  • ALOHA WHITNEY! It has taken me this long to finally try the paint kits… But OMG… I LOVE THEM!!! I can’t stop painting… I have found that I enjoy using my finger(s) instead of the brushes. Now I am trying different mediums as well. I don’t think about WHAT I am trying to paint, I just paint! And have done (what I believe) are the most beautiful paintings ever that I have created!!! Both my Mom and sister are artists, but me… I can’t even draw stick people very well. I know that I am a creative person, but in different ways. I guess all I needed was a little MOTIVATION to send me on my way! MAHALO Whitney for your WONDERFUL paint kits, and book as well! Many abundant blessings.

  • Physically, this book is a riot of various media and concepts for working with clay, jewelry sculpture, paper, paint, creating mandalas and stretching your imagination. The book oozes energy with its unconventional and splashy graphic design. (Click to read full review)

I am having sooooo much fun (in the Creatively Fit Marathon)…..I totally LOVE this experience and I’m looking at my life in lots of new ways!
Thank you sooo much entering my life!  ~Jary

Doing the Creativity Fit Coaching training has brought me so many gifts… Whitney’s unique vision of the 8 principles of design has deepened my understanding on how much art and life are connected.  I feel this program, with its various fun and easy exercises, has given me the necessary tools to help people bridge the connection between their right and left brain hemispheres, so that each of us creates a life that truly expresses our deepest desires.  Whitney’s support and enthusiasm throughout the training and beyond, as well as, her vision, are truly inspiring! http://heartinspiredlife.blogspot.ca/

The Creatively Fit Coaching Training felt like it brought together parts of me that have been wanting to find one another for a long time. The sense of community was palpable and stays with me even as I try to go out on my own. The structure of the training was beyond my expectation. I have been fortunate to spend much of the last decade attending workshops, conferences and trainings of all kinds, andhonestly I have never felt as prepared to do what it is that I want to do as I do after completing my training to become a Creatively Fit Coach. The possibilities seem endless and that excites me. My work and other interests have all benefited from my becoming skilled in helping others become Creatively Fit. The joy in doing so is amazing and the sense of meaning is priceless. Thanks Whitney. You are as real as can
be. ~Kendall, Nashville, TN

The Creatively Fit Marathon is one of the best things I’ve done for myself as an adult.  It is nurturing, balancing and fills my need to express vibrantly.  I love working with the colors and something unexpected always happens!  It stokes the fire in my soul and sends out flames of self-expression leaving me satiated and grinning like a Cheshire cat!  It’s outrageously fun and I look forward to doing this when I’m 80 and cackling the whole time.  Who knew how much fun it would be??  Thank you for your creative spirit and leadership through this wondrous process. ~Betty

Before the program I used to look for all the reasons that “it” wouldn’t work. I had little self-confidence.  NOW, after completing all the steps of the Creatively Fit Program, I go into every situation expecting my success! I am now pursuing my passion and excited about my future.” ~Vivian, Nigeria

People who have experienced Jouneys

It has been 30 years since I’ve experienced an event as life changing as The Journey.  Everything in my life, and the lives of those of us who were there, has shifted because of it. It felt to me as if Whitney Ferre and Bill Olsen simply invited everyone they honored, respected, and loved in the world to be there, and guess what….many of them came. Together we shared, laughed, cried, painted, danced, explored — inwardly and outwardly, and in the end, we fell in love….not only with ourselves and each other, but with the journey itself.

How can it get any better than this? For me it’s by signing up for Journey II……… ~Shelley

How do I put into words the incredible experience of The Journey? Let me try:  Magical. Empowering. Juicy. Transformative. Creative. Joyful. Inspiring. I’ve experienced breakthroughs attending intensives over the years, but nothing like what happened there with people – literally from all over the world – who came together in the name of creativity and spirituality.  Breakthroughs and epiphanies were setting off like fireworks all over the place, and that was only the first few days! A big difference at The Journey I noted compared to those other experiences: the level of commitment by all present to being conscious, kind and supportive… people willing to meet you ‘where you are,’ however you showed up, and the combined effort to inspire + celebrate one another was nothing short of beautiful. And plain ol’ FUN! I pulled out my inner artist and set her free (she’d been hiding a long time), I belly-laughed like a little kid, I danced like I haven’t in years!

If you want to experience and share with a growing community of like-minded, passionate souls, dedicated to supporting the very best we each have to share — and what we can create in this world, together, when we combine our Highest Potentials — where you can explore and listen and learn and dare and dream and hope and cry and cut loose the amazing You that waits within… please, come and join this celebration of consciousness! Whitney and Bill, I can’t thank you enough — my gratitude is endless. And I can’t wait to do it again… See you at Journey ~ Kimberely

We brought Whitney up to our Corporate Headquarters in New York City to lead a creative corporate team building. The program she put on for us was so much fun. It really helped our team to bond with each other and stir up lots of creative energy. Our artwork, as well as pictures of the event, have been on display outside our VP’s office. We get daily comments on what a unique team building event it was! -Ritu Clementi, Sr. Manager, American Express

Whitney and the Creatively Fit team expertly enticed the YMCA of Middle Tennessee’s Leadership Team toward being more balanced and whole leaders by engaging our creative and innovative right-brains. Whitney led our group of 75 top leaders through a hands-on, learn-by-doing experience that produced challenge, fun, pride and success for everyone. Many thanks to Creatively Fit for a great day of learning and fun. –YMCA of Middle TN, Executive Director

Whitney did a great job launching our national kickoff meeting! As a result, we referenced right-brain usage for the duration of the seminar. Being the lead speaker is a tough time slot, but Ferré delivered. Her talk was high-energy and highly interactive, on a subject that many of us need more of–using our right brain.”- Lee McCroskey – Director of Sales Development, The Southwestern Co.
