12-week online experience with a small community of women to help you know what you want, how to move towards it, and what gets in the way of living your freest, fullest, most fulfilling life. Reclaim joy and creativity in your life right now and allow yourself to dream and move towards what you love deeply.
12-week hybrid experience to support you in taking committed action towards something specific you'd love to create in your life. Build your confidence and capacity as you turn your heart's whispers and a big sense of possibility into reality, enjoying every step of the way. Experience begins with an in person retreat.
One of the most powerful transformative supports I've ever experienced! Imagine a guide walking alongside you, helping you listen deeply to yourself, and holding space for you to move through the obstacles. Grow quickly (with courage and support) instead of stumbling around in the uncertainty, confusion and overwhelm of what's new.
Twice a week. 90 minutes. Online. Work on anything creative you'd like to do consistently. Use the entire time to work. Or start with some embodied movement or a check-in with another. End with celebrations, identifying what's next, and a bit of time to get feedback from others (if desired). Join us as often as you can. Grow your creative commitment in community.

I've spent most of my life as an educator, professor, and leader helping others realize their full potential.
But at some point, I realized I wasn't thriving in life.
I felt unfulfilled in my work and life. Everywhere I went, I tried to make a difference but inside I just felt like an outsider. I'd tried almost everything to feel better: looking for new jobs, doing therapy, yoga and meditation, reading TONS of self-help books, doing endless online surveys to figure out who I really was, innovating and endlessly working to change what needed to be improved in higher education. Still, I couldn't consistently feel free or satisfied. Instead, I felt stuck with what I disliked. I had a sense something more was possible for my life. But I didn't know what that was or how to get there. At the same time, my life looked pretty amazing on the outside. It just didn't feel that way inside. There insecurity and dissatisfaction lurked. So, I pushed harder, excelling in everything I did to try and get others to value my work while feeling invisible and unfulfilled.
Still, I knew there must be a way to feel better.
But I didn't know how. So, I enrolled in a life coaching program for women and began connecting with what I wanted for my life. I'd always felt more comfortable trying to make a difference for others and continuously improving what wasn't working than allowing myself to dream. After gaining a sense of what I wanted, I could begin living my life--a life I loved from the inside instead of pouring my effort into being what the world needed me to be. I began choosing new, fulfilling ways to live and learned to stop repeating old, dissatisfying patterns. Now, my life feels very different. Joyful. Creative. Spacious. I can move through challenging emotions and life's bumps without overwhelm. Life no longer lives me. I live life.
Now, I support others in living lives they love--wildly beautiful lives.
As a life coach, I work with women who’ve spent a lot of their life trying--trying to make a difference or be the right thing for others. I know what it’s like to try to feel fulfilled, but to leave classes feeling stupid for struggling to make any real change. Often, I knew what I should do to feel better but I could never do it consistently. It just didn't work for me. This is why my work as a life coach is rooted in understanding neurodivergence, high sensitivity and creativity and honoring the assets of these ways of being in the world. It's also why my work is trauma informed and works with the body to create transformation that sticks (and inspires!).
My Background & Experience
Molly Ware, PhD
I live in beautiful Bellingham, WA. It's my home and I love it here. I spend as much time hiking, mountain biking, and exploring the natural world as possible. Most of the time my chocolate lab Remi, my best friend and mentor, joins me on these adventures. Otherwise, I spend my time gardening for hours on end, working on my memoir, which I'm hoping to finish this year, and creating a getaway with my sweetie Mike on our land on Lopez Island.
I'm also a tenured professor at Western Washington University and a former middle school teacher. In my 20+ years as an educator trying to make a difference that changed schools for the better, I created a lot of new and innovative programs, served as a university-wide leader, and coached and consulted with executives, teams, and students. My favorite part of my work these days is as a coach, helping women blow their minds about what's possible for their lives and how good life can feel and be. I've participated in a variety of coaching programs with Nicholas Janni, Coaches Rising, the Strozzi Institute, and trauma-sensitive mindfulness communities and am always learning ways to better support lasting and inspiring transformation.
