What you know matters & the world needs the unique story only you can tell.


“Cigdem’s writing groups provide a huge opening to explore and navigate my own thoughts and then create from them. Her stories never fail to start a little tornado, a good tornado, of muses and reflections, forming the words that eventually get put down. I love it, and that it happens in community rather than solitary space makes it all the richer an experience.”

DAWN SULLY PILE, Author, Speaker, Co-Active Coach & Seminal Leader

“This class is a great way of gathering content for a memoir. I am going to miss this group. What a wonderful experience and a fantastic collection of writers and writing! This feels like the most sacred writing space.”

JACKEE HOLDER, Executive & Leadership Coach, Coach Trainer & Author

“I would have never been able to do on my own all the deep digging that Cigdem guided me through. My business is now booming in all directions. Great new clients, speaking gigs, teaching, art. I am so happy. I also get a lot of good feedback about my website. It’s now attracting the avatar Cigdem and I worked with—three new clients who are exactly that!”

CYNTHIA MORRIS, Author, Artist & Creativity Coach

“I’m in the strategist’s chair every day in my own business, and what I really needed was someone who could give me what I give to my clients: wise, supportive strategy. Working with Cigdem has been one of the smartest investments I’ve made this year.”

JAC McNEIL, Co-Active Coach & Thought Partner

“Writing. Stamina. I love this experience. Our writing is becoming a string of stories that paint a much larger picture. The words are flowing and they just won’t stop. Maybe I ‘will’ write that book some day.”

Connecting people through stories in life, business & art is the heart of my work.
