As one of our featured artists at Leadership MetaFormation events, Rebekah weaves a rich musical tapestry drawing from Australia, Africa and America to transport listeners into worship. Combining her training as a classical violinist with contemporary worship, its an album that will appeal to those that like to soak in the presence of God.

Creativity in Heaven
When you begin a creative project, there is always an image in your mind of what you want to create. However, when the work is done it never quite seems to capture that first picture. The artist’s vision of the work has a perfection that never comes out the same when you actually make it. You picture the beauty of a dance but your limbs can’t quite do it; you hear the piece of music in your head but when you finally perform it it seems flat. If you are highly skilled, the sculpture captures the form your mind saw, but something about it is still as dead as the inanimate stone it was carved from. Art contains an elusive element, just beyond your grasp, that your creative impulse can touch but never quite fully bring down to earth.
This creative ideal or artistic vision is a memory of heaven—a fleeting touch of true reality—that earth is only a shadow copy of. That first vision of the work is seen in your mind in the colors of heaven, and sung with the voices of angels. With the eyes of heaven you see the sculpture in living stone instead of dead marble, and you visualize yourself dancing with the power of a resurrection body. Creativity sees glimpses of heaven on earth, and attempts to translate it to others....

Read an In-Depth Review
Coaching the Artist Within is the first book to explain the techniques that creativity coaches use to help their clients survive and thrive in the arts. The book’s twelve lessons and numerous exercises explain how to coach artists beyond the obstacles that block creativity. Author Eric Maisel shares anecdotes about his creativity coaching clients, including painters, actors, screenwriters, novelists, dancers, and poets. Coaching the Artist Within will teach you to self-coach or coach creativity issues, and the results will transform your relationship with the creative process.
The Calling Journey fills a vital need for coaches by mapping out the progression of stages and transitions God moves us through on the road to our call. This path includes predictable mountains to scale and painful, disorienting valleys all leaders must navigate to fulfill their destiny. Each stage has a unique growth agenda and is beautifully displayed on this poster.
The Calling Journey Poster Is a presenters tool that will provide a powerful visual aid in a classroom or workshop setting. It is an exact replica of the picture found in The Calling Journey.
