Action Lab is a small curated group coaching program for women artists who are ready to commit to putting their work out into the world to realize their creative visions.

Action Lab begins January 28, 2022!

It’s time to move from doubt to purpose, from confusion to having a plan, and from procrastination to action on your creative goals in 2022!  

In 5 months you’ll go from being isolated and stuck to being completely supported, seen, heard and championed and having made concrete progress toward your goals doing what you love most - your art!


  • You’re mid-way through a project, but procrastination and flimsy boundaries on external requests for your time are keeping you moving at a snail’s pace.

  • You’ve completed a project and it’s sitting on a shelf, in a drawer, or on the studio wall because you are worried about what others will think or that no one will care about your work.

  • You are re-activating your creative vision after a time away but get overwhelmed with limiting thoughts that you are irrelevant, or suck at networking, or don’t have the resources, time, space that you need to get your work done.

  • You’re afraid to even start because you think you’ll lack the consistency needed to realize your vision, which on some level you doubt is realistic or feel worthy of realizing.

  • You’re exhausted by all of the demands on your time and can’t imagine having the motivation or energy or support that would make it possible for you to focus on your goals.

  • As each day passes, you can feel time slipping by and you feel more stuck, more defeated, more uncertain if you should even try, if you can even come close to the vision you have in your heart.  

The #1 most sabotaging thought that artists have is that what they are called to do isn’t as important or essential as any other professional or competing commitment.


Hi.  I’m Naomi Vladeck.  I support artists and creatives who want to make work that fulfills them and resonates with other people and the world.  Using a powerful combination of creative mindset coaching and mindfulness practice, I help women SHED patterns and thoughts that don’t SERVE them anymore, STEP INTO their potential in a big way and be ACCOUNTABLE to their agenda so that they can TAKE THE STEPS forward that open up possibilities they couldn’t have even imagined before the Action Lab.


I TOTALLY GET YOU. Since I was in my 20’s, I knew I was supposed to coach, teach and inspire other artists to put their gifts into the world.  But instead of coming out big with my gifts, I tiptoed. For 25 years I did A WHOLE HELLUVA LOT except coach artists. I got a Masters Degree in Performance Studies at NYU and completed two coaching certifications. I rose up as an executive level fundraiser and planner in non-profit dance, theater and museum institutions. 

I ran writing labs and retreats. I performed solo performance art. I even FOUNDED my own Non Profit presenting organization for mid-career women artists.  No one could say I wasn’t PASSIONATE about giving voice to artists --- but I didn’t really yet know THE POWER OF MY OWN VOICE.

That is, until my husband died six years ago. I had to let go of who I was and enter into a transition that engaged ALL OF MY SENSES so that I could learn to be available to who I was becoming and USE MY VOICE in a BIG WAY.

This is why I created Action Lab. To specifically address the unique challenges and opportunities of women artists in mid-life transitions and help them harness their years of experience and artistry into the work and life of their dreams. My Action Labs includes a mix of women artists who are writers, choreographers, painters, sculptors, theater artists, filmmakers and musicians and other creatives who have a high level of commitment to their work.


In this webinar we will cover

January 28, 2022 to June 5, 2022 

You are driven to put your unique project, voice, expression into the world.  Right now, there is nothing else you’d rather do.


Action Lab is a 5 month experience of supportive group coaching that will get you moving toward your vision.  When you are working with me in the company of these other women you will immediately feel the vibration in your heart shift into high gear.  


The experience of being coached with other women who share their vision, goals, values and action plan is life changing.  Your presence will contribute to an exchange of motivation, ideas, resources and compassion that will teach you how to disarm the resistance that has kept you stuck for too long. 


  • Create a vision for your artistry to thrive

  • Identify your primary focus and an action and start making progress toward your goals

  • Complete what you set out to achieve  - from a book to a major installation!

  • Declare your commitment to your work using language you can use in the real world to generate new opportunities 

  • Use language that honors your commitments to yourself by setting healthy boundaries that help you make space for your work.

  • Learn how to cultivate and maintain a creative mindset even when the going gets tough!

  • Learn mindfulness skills that will make your intuition available to you in new ways

  • Know when old beliefs, thoughts and patterns are obstructing your view of your path

  • Gain a supportive community of like-minded women artists who GET YOU TOO!

“Naomi immediately understood what I needed and coached me to get to a place where I can talk with confidence about my work and push the edge of my comfort zone in a supported way. The group’s honest sharing provided the inspiration I needed to try new language to promote my work and take risks that helped me test my confidence in studio settings. “
