Success stories and testimonials from my creative wings mastermind circle and mindfulness coaching services for creative women.

    “Dari helped me to be more aware and to be more accepting and with that change could happen for me”

    So glad I joined the creative mastermind earlier this year. I can feel that the habit goal of turning up for art practice regularly better yet daily has begun to solidify. Could not have done it without the emotional support.

    The Mastermind helped me to articulate thoughts and feelings that I did not quite know what to do with them or make out of them. With Dari’s approach of gentleness, kindness and generous spirit, I was able to acknowledge, accept and ‘be with’ my negative emotions, particularly my anxieties. With that acceptance I was able to even make my anxiety into a catalyst for my creativity.

    The mastermind has been a supportive space for me to develop a structure around growing healthy creative habits that I believe will serve me as an artist in the long term. I received support not only in terms of structure, but also in terms of perspective especially with negative emotions that have blocked building creative habits in the past. Dari helped me to be more aware and to be more accepting and with that change could happen for me.

    Thank you so much Dari for your kind, gentle and holistic support in my personal journey to create healthy creative habits in my life. I enjoyed your non- judgemental and empathetic approach to support me as well as the others in the accountability group.

    Thank you for this community space that allow us to learn from each other. Hearing your feedback on the community and reading their reports also made me feel less alone in trying to get my creative space together.

    “Dari's guidance is priceless”

    I’m so touched by Dariana’s attention to detail. I received 10x the value of being in this Mastermind just with this audio alone. In the past, I would have stayed in this confusing mindset for months. And, now I can keep swimming even when obstacles come my way. Dari, you are definitely a beautiful soul and a natural coach!

    One of my favorite aspects of being in the Mastermind is having fellow creative women be my sounding board. Being able to share ideas and ask for feedback from other women like myself was extremely useful. I also like the way my goal was so easily organized and how simple it is to share my progress and get feedback. Dari’s guidance is priceless. She made the group extremely valuable.

    After participating in the Mastermind, I have gained the confidence to set more definite monthly goals with clear steps to achieve them. I also have learned a lot of practical steps to organize my business and personal life. I feel more satisfied with the progress I’m making with both my life and creative work.

    “You are a gift. Thank you for the guidance”

    I have seen tremendous growth in my relationship with my husband. We are talking more, spending more time together intimately and connecting. She helped me shift my perspective from what I thought I needed to focus on to what I really needed to focus on.

    I liked having accountability. It was also great to have Dari help dig in deeper. She really listened and showed up. She heard me and my needs and she took it a step deeper. She really helped me accomplish my goals and I feel forever grateful to her!

    Dariana is a gift to this universe and having her help guide me was something I will always remember and use as an anchor when I lose my way. She is a lovely person and an inspiration and I am so lucky to have her in my life. Thank you thank you thank you for inviting me to participate in this. I really enjoyed my time and will definitely sign up for this in the future.

    Dariana, you are a gift. Thank you for the guidance and for taking the time to lead!

    “I really liked the whole experience, the support and ideas based on your plan and your progress”

    I really liked the whole experience, the support and ideas based on your plan and your progress was very helpful, sharing with other people what you want to accomplish is very powerful, it gives you the practice to organize your ideas and communicate them, that is a very strong skills I want to develop more and make it part of my life.

    I think that the path of success is not only sharing your accomplishments but to create routines, discipline, and take action every day, this group helps you to do that.

    The best results I saw was my commitment to take action, I was able to create a schedule and follow it, I saw some improvements on my daily routine, like sleeping schedule, consistent in meditation, time organization and time for rest. I also kept enough excitement to keep going further next month.

    Thank you Dari for the opportunity to be here I was able to create time for habits, and to keep a routine based on my goals, that is very powerful. It was a pleasure to be here.

    “I appreciate her honesty that she brings to her coaching clients, her artwork and her processes”

    My favorite part of Dari’s mastermind was Dari. Since I met Dari last year, I have loved all that she has shared with an open and honest heart. Her passion for life and the energy that she putting into anything that she puts her mind to comes thru in all that she does. I appreciate her honesty that she brings to her coaching clients, her artwork and her processes. I appreciated learning about Dari’s processes for staying organized and I have really enjoyed using the tools that I learned in the Mastermind in various areas of my life.

    When taking the mastermind course, I enjoyed the support throughout each week from Dari and the other girls in the group. Dari noticed patterns where I get stuck and coached me along to keep me on track to meeting my goal for the month. I have looked back to that coaching and I’m now able to recognize those patterns and be nicer to myself when it happens and keep going! Since participating in the mastermind, I have gotten more organized and I have been sending out my work more regularly to potential clients.

    I’m looking forward to taking another mastermind in the future and I would highly recommend it to others looking for accountability.

    Thanks Dari!! You have opened my eyes to the new world of organizing digitally [batching] and I am loving it! I am seeing so much time already being saved 😉

    “Dari’s support and encouragement throughout the program is invaluable”

    I am very happy with my results as I needed a jumpstart. Dari helped me focus on the “now” and concentrate on one goal at a time.

    For me these 2 months were valuable in learning more about my style but also which direction I’d like to take my art in. I’ve created more art in these 2 months then ever before. To have friends and family see the difference in what I’m doing is very satisfying and encouraging. Dari’s support and encouragement throughout the program is invaluable.

    I would highly recommend Dari’s program to anyone who needs the motivation or the push to be accountable in completing a goal/ task.

    “She pushed me when I needed by sharing just the right insight when I thought that I had lost my way”

    Dari took me as I am. Messy, unorganized but full of wanting to get my goal accomplished. She pushed me when I needed by sharing just the right insight when I thought that I had lost my way.

    If she hadn’t been there for me at that low point last month, I would have stayed put and not moved forward. I would have allowed my fears to consume me. She gently guided. She inspired. She walks the walk and gets in the trenches. I can’t thank her and her team enough and am so grateful to have had this opportunity!

    As a Momma who is working so hard to get things up and running having this advice in a video that I can play while I am doing artwork is priceless and worth the cost of the mastermind in and of itself.

    I am so sorry that I am quiet and it’s not what I want but I am really getting a lot out of this group the past two months and the silent accountability that it has given me has pushed me harder than anything yet. This has been a really good thing. Thanks, Dari!

    The way that Dari organizes and shares information is so eye-opening and teaching. She uses a trello board, which I had always wanted to try but really didn’t understand. She made spectacular videos to accomplish an ease of keeping things straight.

    Dari shares invaluable behind the scenes look into her personal life i.e. health, fitness and friendships, how integral these things are to be part of a balance. She shares in-depth looks into her business and shows you that a lot of what you are dealing with right then, so is she. She takes the road and helps guide.

    “Enjoyed meeting other creatives and reading about their goals”

    One of the things I liked best about the mastermind is being able to meet other creatives and read about their goals. It kept me inspired.

    Since finishing the mastermind, I do actually push myself to finish projects, even while I was traveling, and I learned great techniques about productivity and organizing tasks.

    “I have a much better idea of how to accomplish vague goals”

    As someone who hates to let others down, this Mastermind really helped me stay on task. Normally when I’m working on a personal project that involves fear or resistance, it’s all too easy to let it drop and cut myself a break. However, knowing that I’d have to report to the group every week — and that I’d invested in the Mastermind for the month – kept me from dropping the ball! I was overjoyed when I completed my project (I redid my website). What a great feeling! I’ll definitely participate again when I have a sticky project that I need support to stick with!

    Participating in this Mastermind forced me to take steps that I never take: assign certain tasks to each week, estimate how much time I will spend each week, report my progress (no matter if it is positive or negative), etc. The truth is, these steps—and my investment in getting this task completed this month—were what was necessary to complete the job. I can clearly see why I fail to accomplish my vague goals, and I have a much better idea of how to accomplish them, either on my own or with group support.

    This Mastermind has been critical to getting this done this month: I really needed a sense of urgency, a deadline, and a feeling of public accountability and (gentle) public scrutiny. It worked!

    “Dari has a real gift for guidance in helping women find their true potential”

    I liked the community setting, it felt like we were all efforting towards something in common although all goals were distinct we were still working towards achieving new heights in May.

    Dari, was able to coach me into a space that was completely unexpected. I have gone down the rabbit hole and I am currently submerged in a coaching school pertaining finances, I would have never done this had it not been for the experience that Dari provided.

    Aside for being extremely grateful in the participation of last months mastermind, I would like to add that Dari has a real gift for guidance in helping women find their true potential.

    “I always feel your love transmitted in every message you deliver”

    Dariana, thank you so much for your very insightful and loving feedback. I always feel your love transmitted in every message you deliver.

    “This mastermind give us an encouraging and loving place to explore our journeys together”

    The mastermind is such a supportive and caring community. I look forward each week to reading through the member reports. Even though we all have different occupations and backgrounds, there is so much we have in common and so many of our experiences are shared. This mastermind give us an encouraging and loving place to explore our journeys together.

    Dari wonderfully shares behind-the-scenes tips for running a creative business. She shows such support, care, and compassion for creatives and she graciously shares in ways that uplifts each of us – it’s such a breath of fresh air!

    “My realization: life itself will manifest into what you've always dreamed of”

    I can wholeheartedly say that joining Dari’s Creative Wings Mastermind 8 months ago has changed my life in the most magical way. Not only because we receive the exact feedback and guidance we need in the precise moment we need it, but because of the wonderful women I have become close with. Thanks to them I’ve realized that I am not the only one—that the most important thing in life is to be yourself, and that from there, life itself will manifest into what you’ve always dreamed of.

    The past months (since I joined the Creative Wings mastermind) I’ve been on a journey of creating a business. A business I’ve been wanting to establish for so long. And while I took many courses to guide me in the right direction, something deep inside me knew I needed to live some more before figuring it out.

    These wonderful ladies of the Mastermind inspired me to share my truth. To share my curiosities, my thoughts, my lessons … what made me, Me. And although that was my intention all this time, along the way the ego budged in and put the brakes on the steps I wanted to take.

    If there’s something I’ve learned in the time I’ve been part of @dariluna_ MM Circle is the importance of connecting w/ like-minded (and souled) individuals. To have people that surround you and the journey you are on; that understand the steps you’re taking and know exactly what to offer for your growth.

    Dari, Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for the energy you transmit and the time you take to record these audios for us.

    “I love the Mastermind and will recommend it always, because it truly changed my life on the best possible moment”

    I’ve learned that I can create anything I want, just need to choose the correct tools for each goal I decide to focus on, and work on it, respecting my own cycles. I’ve known my own manifesting power!

    I feel the Mastermind as a big group of women teaching each other. It’s not only about Dari, there also are creative and powerful women putting their efforts on creating meaningful lives and opening their hearts to each other, without fears or masks. True people sharing from their hearts and opened to receive advices, guide, and any tool which can help them to create. I love the Mastermind and will recommend it always, because it truly changed my life on the best possible moment.

    I’m very satisfied with the mastermind. I feel it helped me a lot while I needed it, to put goals and focus on them. I would definitely recommend it to others. I wouldn’t change anything about it, it’s perfect the way it is and I’ve learned a lot. Love it!

    “Thank you for creating such an amazing mastermind where we get to grow and lift each other up”

    My favorite part of the Mastermind is Dari’s weekly feedback audio. I love hearing her insights and perspective on my week. It’s a beautiful personalized feedback report for my soul as I journey with my goal!

    It’s amazing how much I’ve grown in just one month. I imagined I would be checking off a list of tasks when I first started. I had no idea I would be healing and unblocking my limited beliefs around money. I have seen myself truly embrace the journey around my goal and all it’s brought to the surface.

    I’m extremely happy and grateful to be part of this beautiful community! Thank you for creating such an amazing mastermind where we get to grow and lift each other up 🙂

    Dari, I’m so grateful for you and all the wisdom and love you give to me and this amazing circle. Thank you for bringing us all together to grow, learn, and hold space for each other. Happy and grateful to continue to grow and create alongside you beautiful souls! My heart is bursting gratitude!

    Thank you Dari for all the feedback last week. Everything resonated as always. I am often in that state of always pursuing happiness and I really needed the reminder that it’s not realistic to always be there and that it’s ok to embrace my feelings.

    “The mastermind has been a great way to stay focused”

    So happy to have joined @dariluna_ The Creative Wings Mastermind group, it has been such a great way to stay focused on me and my goals and more importantly get them done.

    “Thank you for your reminder and support”

    Thank you so much for your very helpful feedback. This is exactly what I needed to hear, which is why I knew I had to share exactly where I am at. I know I have been acting from a place of fear, my intellect knew that, but I was having a hard time getting myself out of that place.It is interesting that you use the phrase “Inspired Action”…that was my word for 2018 and I feel it served me well, but it seems I have been straying from that practice a bit. Thank you for your reminder and support.

    “Lo más hermoso fue encontrar si haces las cosas con el corazón todo estará bien”

    Dari es una persona con una luz enorme y cada palabra que dice lo es.

    Hace mucho siento ese algo dentro de mi llamado intuición que me dice que siga con mis sueños y todo estará bien, lo más hermoso fue encontrar a personas que también la escuchan y escucharlas, saber que en efecto si haces las cosas con el corazón todo estará bien.
