addresses - but not exclusively - addresses women's issues.

1) WRITERS' COACHING PROGRAM : Writing from your true Self
the stories we tell are of the utmost importance. they
not only express our world view -- they create it. when you
have many people believing the same story, you have a
religion, a culture, a body politic, a tribe. story is both the glue
that humans together -- it can also be the knife that that tears
tears us apart.
as a coaching client of mimi's you will explore questions such as:
what story are you currently telling yourself about
life and how it works?
about yourself -- as a person and as a writer?
why do you write?
what are your values?
what is your intention for your writing?
who are you writing for?
what do you hope to achieve?
mimi helps you explore your connection to your core SELF
this is the non-egoic Self" - a part of your consciousness
where your small identities dissolve and your creative
expression flows unimpeded by fear.
this is the INSPIRATION state where you enter a river of
imagination and intuition -- your dance with your life force!
after that, mimi helps you face the PERSPIRATION part of
your creative process, the craft of re-writing and
self-editing, applying your intellect and knowledge
to your work to ensure it is clear, engaging and credible
these two different processes lead you to a polished work
you can be proud to share with your readers

Introductory client testimonials from writers:
Mimi's years as a stellar artist and artists' coach have served to foster a deep empathy with other human beings. That combined with her superior intelligence and keen intuition make her an exceptionally gifted coach. It is rare to find all of her qualities in one person. ~ Katherine Woodward Thomas
NY Times bestselling author of Calling In The One and Conscious Uncoupling.
"Mimi is a gifted artist, mystic and visionary who is dedicated to service to others. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work with her. She is a source of constant inspiration. The perfect muse! With her sensitive, intuitive and skillful facilitation I have been able to bring my book from the ethereal to the tangible. The writer's block I have been experiencing for the past three years has dissolved. The words are now pouring from me! Thank you, Mimi!"
~TIM CHITTENDEN, author of THE 4 R's -- UNLOCKING
YOUR DIVINE POTENTIAL
Mimi has helped me edit and rework three novels. Her impeccable sense of timing, language and musicality give her the ability to detect and correct a false note, but also to celebrate well-written prose with heartfelt encouragement and joy. I highly recommend her editing skills for beginning writers as well as seasoned pros. She will give you the precise and insightful artistic eye that you need. Due to her many years of experience in the literary/musical/theatrical world, she is an excellent midwife for any project— she can help you bring your seed of an idea to joyful fruition.
~ CYNTHIA MOORE MILLER, Author of Spencer's Pond, This is Enough, etc.
When I handed Mimi Seton my memoir, it was a "finished manuscript". I'd had a lot of professional eyes read through my book and was working on the cover. But Mimi is so intuitive and so skilled at text analysis that she provided me with two precious gifts: enthusiasm for what I had accomplished and a detailed list of text errors that the other readers had not caught! I dubbed her, The Grammar Goddess!
Above all, I value the manner in which Mimi entered my book, looking at it from my point of view, eager to support my personal mission, before then looking at it as an outsider, with clear, objective scrutiny formed by decades of artistic output. She is an amazing midwife for your artistic 'baby'!
~ KAREN INGENTHRON LEWIS, Author and actress
introductory client testimonials from professionals in Theatre and Music:
J’ai étudié avec Mimi Seton pendant trois ans et de tous les professeur(e)s que j’ai pu rencontrer sur mon parcours, c’est la seule qui a su lier au professionnalisme de son enseignement une profonde humanité, un humour inégalable, la distance nécessaire, l’inspiration, un respect sans faille ainsi qu’une ouverture d’esprit sans pareille. Peu d’entre nous savent transmettre avec autant de ferveur et de bienveillance.»
Comédienne, metteure en scène, Paris
Watching Mimi's singing students lay it on the line is better than AMERICAN IDOL! This is the Real Thing.
~ Bill Ratner
