CIJ is a proven, state-of-the-art methodology based on the Stanford University Master’s Degree Course “Creativity in Business,” which has revolutionized the art of success.

CIJ teaches you how to:

  • Get clear about how you want to design the next exciting chapter in your life
  • Discover how to silence your inner critic and get out of your own way
  • Increase your self-confidence and cultivate your intuition so you can trust yourself more
  • Create a new relationship with time…one that eliminates stress
  • Develop powerful listening and communication skills so that you become more charming and relatable
  • Bring new found peace and balance into your life, rid of fear and anxiety
  • Take action in your life instead of just talking about making changes and never doing anything about it

The Program

The CIJourney is a process for tapping into your full creative potential to create breakthrough results on a personal or professional challenge or goal. This creativity and mindfulness program was developed by Michael Ray and based on proven methods from his work at Stanford University, where the thought leader Jim Collins called the program “the most transformational course ever to be taught at Stanford.”

This program is designed to get you from where you are to where you want to be. The program will cover one topic per week for a period of 8 weeks. You will learn and apply the 8 lessons of the Stanford Creativity course by working with me, you will be guided on the journey of developing a vision and plan around your goals and challenges, and then applying the powerful Creative Insight tools to make your vision a reality.

Most of the learning in this program does not require dedicated time, but rather attention and practice to integrate new ideas into your day-to-day activities. This is not something separate from your personal and professional day-to-day, but rather a much more powerful way to go about your day-to-day.

Program Structure and Themes

The first 4 weeks are spent on building a foundation in essential tools for creativity:

  • Week 1: Faith in Your Own Creativity
  • Week 2: Absence of Judgment
  • Week 3: Mindfulness
  • Week 4: Powerful Questions

The next 4 weeks are spent on going more deeply into the tools as you apply them to four general work/life challenges:

  • Week 5: Purpose and Vision
  • Week 6: Time and Stress
  • Week 7: Relationships
  • Week 8: Prosperity and Bringing Your Creativity into your world

In addition to the specific weekly topics, the program is organized around two themes:

  1. Discovering yourself, your creative resources and your highest potential
  2. Applying the creativity and mindfulness lessons to make significant progress on a challenge or goal

Finally, the program culminates with a powerful last class that has you tap into your greatest creative resources.

How much time do I need for this class?
You will need to set aside the time for the class meeting, (90 minutes-2 hours, once weekly) and about an hour per week for work outside of class. This program is intended to be immediately integrated into your daily life, so don’t worry too much about “homework.” What is required is a commitment to open-mindedness and self-discovery.


“A few weeks after CIJ, I found myself SO grounded and centered and present. I truly felt, ‘Wow, I’m in a good place. I’m in a positive place and things are moving in the right direction for me.’ This realization of being aware and centered has actually helped me get out of my own way. It’s been such a relief. I think it’s important to really look within and spend 8 weeks focusing on yourself. I’m so glad I did it.”
