Living an Authentic Aligned Creative Life
Eventually.... you have to breathe.
Introducing...the collaboration of Chef Willi Nordby and Cindy Goldfield, Goldfield Creative Events
Who is Cindy Goldfield?
I am a multi-passionate artist and businesswoman who has spent my life in pursuit of authentic expression in many ways.
A professional award-winning actor and director, I have over 25 years experience in Event Concept Design, Production and Management. In alignment with my work with actors and singers, I offer Performance Coaching services for performers, entrepreneurs and media presenters.
I lead Empowered Sexuality for Teens workshops and retreats, offering unbiased, nonjudgmental sexuality information to the young people I work with, as well as offering Empowered Sexuality retreats, personal and group coaching for women of pre- and post-menopause age. I also offer one-on-one and group Authenticity Coaching for those who are searching to get closer to living an authentic, aligned, creative life.
I am a mother of two teen-age boys, an occasional caterer/baker and a lover of walking barefoot on the beach in all weathers. I believe that anything is possible and in the power of a really great kiss.

For Social Media Presenters, Entrepreneurs and Public Speakers
Often times it takes a glass of wine for adults to “wax loquacious” when what we’re after is the ease in communication that a little kid has when he’s pretending to be a pirate. The commitment to telling the story so deeply that all sense of self-confidence flows naturally.
Many analysts rank public speaking as one of the highest human fear yet, in our current world we need to do it over and over and over again. Our businesses depend upon it. Without comfort in public speaking, we come off stilted, awkward and ultimately untrustworthy. Let's break through that veneer of awkwardness and find natural ease and confidence through games and exercises designed to bring us back to child-like ease, with a sense of open-minded curiosity and vulnerability.
Empowered Sexuality for Teens
Empowered Information for Teenagers of all Genders
Today's teens must navigate a difficult world of sexual politics, marked by complicated and contradictory expectations from society, their families. their school and neighborhood cultures, and even from themselves. Hook-up culture, social media, early (and easy) exposure to pornography and violence in media all contribute to an environment which supposes that kids know a lot more than they do and the expectation that they comport themselves with confidence, caution and self-protection. Add to this the assumption that feminism and equality should mean that relationships and sexual expression should be balanced and satisfying, despite the prevailing societal taboo against female desire. Kids today are far more likely to experience cyber-bullying, sexual assault, sexting and shame, than to feel safe, confident and able to express their sexuality in an intentional, safe way.
In my workshops and retreats, we approach anatomy/physiology, consent, power dynamics, feminism (what it is and what it isn’t), gender exploration, resources, decision-making, cultivating self-worth and self-care practices. All workshops are intended to include all genders, and expressions. Sessions are held in safe, inclusive spaces where participants are encouraged to ask questions, listen and offer their own views.
Also offered: Empowered Sexuality for Teens- The Parent side- a Three Hour Workshop for Parents of Teens
Letting go, offering love and acceptance, resources, power struggles, gender exploration, decision-making, consent practice.

Empowered Information for those who may not have an safe outlet for discussion
Women "of a certain age" often have grown up without complete knowledge of their own physiology and how aging effects our sexuality. Many women do not have a place where they feel safe and held to discuss their questions, concerns, desires and challenges. Small group sessions, retreats, Full Moon circles and Sexuality Information Lunches allow a space to share and get your questions answered, concerns aired and feel the support of women who are also searching for answers and support. My goal is to create inclusive, non-judgement spaces where women can bloom and thrive and feel entitled to claim their sexuality. Pleasure is our birthright and aging should allow us to delve even deeper into our desires and sensuality... whatever that means to the individual.
Cultivating an Authentic, Aligned, Creative Life
What does Authentic Aligned Creative Life look like to you? To me, it's creating a life that is true to my values, the culture and environment that I want to create, my aspirations of work and creative expression, and creating a life that is good for the planet, my body, heart and soul.
Authenticity Coaching is tailored to each individual client. For some of this may mean cultivating rituals and practices around coming home to yourself. Personal Values Exploration, Ritual Cultivation, Sacred Bathing Practices and self-care definition and expression, Moon circles, guided journaling, guided meditations, and other personalized coaching techniques.
