an achingly beautiful, awe-inspiring, and moving experience in which we feel alive to our very core, despite our fears, doubts, and fumbles.

It has taken me a long time to fully appreciate this fact.

Even longer to articulate it in a way that feels alive with possibility. But here’s what I’ve learned:

Experience and Expression are two sides of the same coin. One lets you take in the world in a way that shapes you. The other lets you share who you are (or are becoming) in a way that helps shape the world around you.

In other words, you and the world need each other in ways that can only happen when you put yourself out there…to learn, to grow, to create, to discover and to express yourself (the one you’ve hidden away for far too long).

It can be scary and challenging and require that you trust your own instincts when all you want is a map that shows you the way. I get that. More than you could ever know.

And that is why I created Maoomba.

StormyI am Stormy Sweitzer, Maoomba-in-Chief

::Writer, everyday explorer, and your guide to a life that moves you

I am obsessed with the ways that we experience, learn from, and express ourselves in the world. Here at Maoomba, I help gentle souls, like you perhaps, discover how to do exactly this in your own way.

Whether through experiential, self-paced programs or in working directly with you, I help you uncover possibilities, articulate dreams, and build the confidence and unique roadmap you need to get you out of your head and into the world to experience them.

And I do so with a nod to practicality; my years as a consultant and project manager have made me as nimble with navigating real-world frameworks and constraints as I am with exploring creative imaginings, wondrous encounters, and deep unknowns.

What you take from this work all depends on you and what you want to experience—not just in this lifetime, but today, and how you want to express yourself—not just creatively, but in the way you are in the world.

Each element you encounter on Maoomba has been crafted with this in mind. Here you will find:

Bespoke Life Experiences for those who are searching for a feeling of aliveness or sense of self in this life (or are just plain tired of holding out on themselves) and are ready to become a full participant in their own lives. These experiences are custom-tailored to your dreams, goals and struggles and equip you with the learning, confidence, and skill to continue exploring life-expanding possibilities on your own.

Guided Explorations for closet creatives, quiet souls, and those who spend a lot of time in their head (and also struggle to share or express their gifts). These explorations help you bring your innate personality, vivid imagination, flights of fancy, beautiful ideas, and rich inner world to life in the world outside in a way that feels like coming home to yourself.

The Wonder Room is a virtual sanctuary of curiosity, exploration, and reflection. Use it to find inspiration, immerse yourself in something beautiful, or find prompts and questions for self-inquiry.

I have a particular love of people who are easily moved by life, yet find themselves holding back. If this is you, I want you to know that I see you. Really.
