You're a creative: art is central to your life.
Yet unlocking your creative flow feels elusive.
You can free the creative within, starting now!
The Bright Way, a proven system to:
break the fear-judgment-block cycle and free your creative flow
Harpists Enter Here
Anytime we put fingers on strings, we create. We dream of songs in our hearts and minds, tap our fingers while we walk along, and thrill when we meet kindred spirits. That’s why I want to share The Bright Way with harpists from aspiring to pro; I want to help you express the vast well of creativity inside you via our beloved instrument. Together we can build a musical practice - a musical lifestyle - that inspires and keeps you motivated, builds your creative community, improves your technique so that you play with flow, and so much more.
All Artistic Creatives Enter Here
We all have an innate creative flow just waiting to be accessed. Whether we're artists, writers, gardeners, parents, or simply really excellent daydreamers, every one of us shows creativity when we put our whole selves into the acts that pull at our heart-strings. The Bright Way is my pathway to that well of creative energy, and today I want to share it with you. Together, I believe we can surmount creative blocks, and move away from any negative headspace surrounding our creative flow—whatever our passions and dreams. Creative flow is our natural state as humans - let's regain it!
Why I wrote The Bright Way
I walk onstage to play. The sounds, lights, even the air all begin to rise and come close. Then, suddenly, it seems I can hear a pin drop. All senses align and channel into my playing.
For many of us, tapping into our creativity looks like this. We feel aligned, whole, and connected. We lose track of what may have been weighing us down. We feel fulfilled. In these moments, I know we are all born to be creative and in fact, it is our destiny to be creative.
Yet, there was a time when I would do anything to avoid the stage - and my creative life - out of fear, anxiety, and creative block. Like me, you may have faced (or are facing) a period in your life where you feel divorced from your internal, creative flow.
Can we overcome these fears? Yes! This is why I wrote The Bright Way: Five Steps to Freeing the Creative Within. I share my journey from creative paralysis to creative flow, teaching you a pathway that has helped me and countless others reclaim our creativity, reignite our passion, and discover our true purpose in life.
Truly, I believe the more we are our true selves, the more the world benefits, and I hope to benefit you with what I’ve learned along the bright way!

Work with me to free your creativity
When we separate ourselves from our creativity drive, we stall. Often, we don’t know how to get out of this rut—we simply know there’s a problem in need of attention.
If this sounds familiar, I want to work with you.
I am a student of The Bright Way as well as its creator, so I know how scary it feels like to lose our connection with the world around us. That’s why I’ve built a creativity ecosystem that nurtures your creativity in five key ways: through Inspiration, Artistry, Technique, Learning, and Community. When pursued as a whole (without 1000 rules to follow) these aspects of our creativity blend to erase fears and doubts, and ultimately ease the path to realizing our true Purpose.
When I work with passionate creatives like yourself, I provide almost limitless opportunities for creative engagement. From summits, to group sessions, to mini-retreats and assigned reading materials, you’ll find support on all sides as you work through potential negative headspaces surrounding your own creative mindset. You’ll also discover your own path to acting on your unique genius, wherever it crops up. I truly can’t wait to see what we discover about each other along the way, and look forward to meeting you soon.
About Diana Rowan
I was not always a full-time creative. Although I started playing music from a young age and performed around the world, there was a terrible fear within that made me quit music - the very heart of my creativity. I had many musical tools in my workshhop - from a Ph.D. in Music Theory to a Master’s of Music - and yet I couldn’t surmount crippling performance anxiety.
I now know this is a common yet secret story for artistic creatives. I couldn’t see it at the time, but my fears stemmed from being out of touch with my inspiration. I was scared to face the truth - practically petrified - yet I knew I had no other choice: either reclaim music for myself, or risk living an unfulfilled life forever.
Today, I am happy to tell you that along an epic journey filled with many turns, I’ve reclaimed my creative voice, and can now share that voice with confidence. I'm honored to teach The Bright Way System as a full-time creative today, and hope you’ll join me as we both ignite our passions, and live our Purpose every day.
