ONE-TO-ONE & MENTORSHIP
A few months ago I was invited to be a mentor of a young filmmaker. The invitation came from a portuguese feminist association who initiated a program called 'From woman to woman', matching young women with professionals in their area of choice, for guidance in their creative project as well as in life, with a component on ethics, activism and creativity. As we live in different countries, we meet on zoom. The sessions follow what comes up through the making of her film, the personal blocks, the breakthroughs, with a good dose of inspiration and empathy. It has been a real pleasure and an inspiring journey for both. After teaching groups for many years, and recently starting The wisdom tree School, this individual mentorship inspired me to offer also one-to-one sessions via zoom.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"I have been having individual mentorship sessions with Claudia to devellop my film project. It has been an intense and magical journey. Claudia is a very sensitive, empathic and patient mentor, with wonderful tools to unblock creativity. She always has an exercise, film or book to recommend that is always related with what is coming up."

OTHER INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS
Create your Website
Many times I tried to help friends to build their own website, I noticed that the first obstacle was not even the technical part, which can be difficult for some people. I noticed that most people, either artists, musicians, therapists or yoga teachers, struggled to write about themselves or have the clarity about what they wanted to do or offer.
In these individual sessions I can offer mentorship and guidance in the areas that might be holding you back from putting yourself out there, and I can offer guidance and technical tools for you to create and design your own website - from planning your pages, create an account, work with templates, customize your design, write your texts, prepare your images, hosting videos, music, or audio, and embedding on the website, creating a domain, and how to update your website in the future. I work on wix, which is a very friendly and easy to use platform.
We meet on Zoom and use the Share screen feature for tutorials and to see your work.

Create your Book
Anyone can publish a book. Either you want to create a book for yourself, or as a present, or want to create a portfolio, photo book or you want to write your own memoir or novel and sell it online, Self-published books on demand are an option. I have made a few. The first in 2006.
Although the process is easy enough and most people possibly can figure it out on their own, by following the instructions and using templates, there are some tricky things and tips that can make the process a lot smoother, specially if you are working with a long format text book or designing text along with photos for example. A session or two might be enough to guide you through the initial stages of starting the project, the choice of format, issues with fonts, and how design the book, how to work with chapters when bringing a text from a word document, tips for revising, how to close a project, make it ready to create a paperback book (print) and an ebook, and finally how to make it available to sell online.
