WHO IS MIMI SETON?
Mimi is a multi-award-winning writer-editor, composer, singer, art photographer and working psychic who is dedicated to helping fellow artists bring forth "soulful" work. This means diving deeper than our personas --the images we think we SHOULD project to others, our cultural biases and hypnosis--into the wellspring of the unconscious, where we can receive what Life wants to express through us. This is a parth for people who want to balance intuition with intellect, feeling with sensation.
Mimi encourages writers and artists to drop the false self and serve Soul rather than ego; this is why her coaching is sometimes referred to as, "a spiritual process". She has no One Size Fits All method, but calls upon 50 years in the Arts and as a spiritual seeker to respond to each individual in a unique way. She is dedicated to personal evolution, and believes that artists -- as champions of the imagination -- have an important role to play in the advancement of the human species, particularly in 2021 and beyond, when Humanity needs to change in order to survive and thrive. Mimi considers it a privilege to hold you in a field of non-judgement, loving kindness and enthusiasm as you transform into a more awakened human being and thus a more soulful artist and writer.
A born mystic whose psychic abilities were studied by Harvard University researchers in 1967, Mimi's first point of curiosity is the nature and power of human intuition, which she believes arises naturally when we connect to the non-local, trans-personal Self. At age 50, she went back to graduate school in Psychology (Pacifica Graduate Institute) and was licensed in NLP, the brainchild of cognitive therapy. Since then, she has worked as an NLP practitioner, a hypnotist, a past life regressionist, and a psychic medium, in addition to keeping active in the Arts and arts teaching.

The stories we tell not only express our unique world view,
they create it. When many people believe the same story,
you have a mythology, a legend, a religion, a body politic,
a tribe, a gang, a family...Story is both the connective tissue
that unites humans in loving action, and the weapon that
can tear us apart...
What story are you currently telling yourself about Life and how it works?
Why do you write?
What most takes your curiosity in life?
What are your three non-negotiable values in your work?
Who are you writing for?
What do you hope the effect of reading your work will be?
How badly do you need to do it?
What is your biggest fear about writing - and being read by others?
Mimi will help you explore these and other questions and will give you permission NOT to know
all the answers, so you can investigate who you are and the world your mind is creating, with
curiosity, courageous vulnerability and true openness.
Work on your novel, stories, plays, essays, memoirs, etc. All genres are welcome.
Individual sessions are 60 to 90 minutes.

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!"
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 of I Married A Munster
introductory client testimonials from professionals in Theatre & 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
Mimi Seton's work is eloquent, trenchant, insightful, and always maintains a daring sense of immediacy.
~ Edwin Gerard

Watching Mimi's singing students lay it on the line is better than AMERICAN IDOL! This is the Real Thing.
Mimi has a keen perception for each performer's needs, and a vast range of knowledge and techniques to address them; her coaching is gentle, supportive and very much in the creative spirit.

Mimi Seton is more than a master teacher. She is a sensei.
