Clare Elizabeth Dea is a dynamic influencer known internationally as a performance artist, transformational speaker, writer and creative business mentor.
Extremely passionate about authentic expression, storytelling and connection, audiences are captivated by her presence and ability to move them deeply.
She loves helping female creatives and entrepreneurs align their creative vision, build their personal brand and earn what they deserve doing what they love.
She is asked to speak regularly about a range of topics including transforming shame into success, the principles of money yoga and owning your authentic voice.
Working officially from the age of 16 in the Entertainment Industry, Clare started wearing a lot of masks on and off the stage. Hiding from the world that she was born with Poland's Syndrome, a rare congenital condition where her left hand side of her body is smaller than her right. Born without her left pec, her left breast never developed as a teenager. She was so ashamed of her body, she kept it a secret for many years.
After a lot of soul searching, psychotherapy and personal development, she courageously shared her story publicly in memoir 'The One Breast Goddess - Transforming Shame Into Beauty.' This led to many interviews and speaking opportunities about owning your authentic voice, including an invitation from Tedx.
Passionate about helping other creatives shine, Clare's entrepreneurial spirit led her to open various businesses including the 'Victorian Dance Studio,' acting school 'Meisner Melbourne' and branching into a personal brand with a range of merchandise, online courses and online TV shows. This leading her to be nominated for Telstra Business Woman Of The Year.
In May 2018, she launched her first transformational theatrical experience 'Dropping The Mask.' A One Woman show with live band. Directed by Richard Lawton and Musically Directed by Joe Oppenheimer. A sold out season and rave reviews, Clare was inspired to continue writing transcendental memoirs for the stage.
Mid 2018 in Los Angeles, Clare hit a rock bottom. Complete burnout and $109,000 of debt, she took 6 months off work to put her focus on recovery. She found herself regularly in a spiral of shame and had to face the reality of her financial situation. Here is where she came face to face with the principles and practices that have shaped 'Money Yoga.' She committed to a daily 'Money Yoga' practice and created a new reality for herself in life and business, where her money shadows weren't stealing the spotlight.
In September 2019, Clare made a come back to her career and launched a new show 'Devil Woman' at The Melbourne Fringe Festival. Delving into her story of having Poland's Syndrome in a comedy cabaret.
Media caught onto her story and she started receiving publicity all over Australia. Studio 10, The Guardian, Herald Sun, Channel 9 Honey, The News Daily, The Melbourne Explorer all featuring her story. Then American Company 'Hashtag Stories' saw her story and together they crafted a video about her show, which received over 1 million hits in the first 24 hours.
To complete a transformative 2019, a film that she starred in ‘Bodies’ played in Hollywood and New York at NYC Doc Fest.
Clare now works regularly as a MC, speaker and performer at a range of in person and online holistic events. Recently presenting at 'Freedom Festival,' 'Get Mic'd' 'Get Hacked, Get Hi,' 'Soul Star Festival' and 'Big Love Festival.'
She is also touring Australia with her new transformational comedy show 'The Spiritual Love Guru.' The tour began in Perth in February 2020 and was put on a pause due to COVID-19. Pivoting her show to an online spiritual dating show 'Love In Quarantine' proudly sponsored by Evohe Skincare. Her Australian tour will recommence in 2021.
With lockdown 2.0 in Melbourne, Clare delved deep into what she could create during this time to be of greatest service. That was when her partner Oz and her created the Money Yoga 'Personal Finance Tracker.' One of the tools that has helped them create peace, clarity and prosperity. You can find that in the merchandise section of the website.
Clare is currently working with hilarious creative queen Kirsty Carr in their 5 week transformational journey 'Your Message Matters.' Helping people to share their heart from the page to the stage.
Clare is also very excited to be launching her new 'Inspirational Women's Retreat.' A creative's business holiday meets sacred AF business mastermind. Applications are now being taken. Information can be found in the courses section of the website.
Clare would love to work with you. Feel free to contact her at email@example.com for any performing or speaking opportunities.
After having a taste of Clare’s magic, I invited her to speak at one of my events. Clare was able to craft an inspiring message for my audience and adapt to the energy in the room on the day. Her delivery was on point! She combined humour, examples, and vulnerable personal stories that connected her to the audience and made her point powerful and rememberable. She gave the audience immediately useful take-aways and her passion, honesty and presence have had her totally command the stage. My audience left feeling excited and motivated. So much so, I had her back to do it again! I highly recommend Clare as a dynamic, personable and transformational speaker.

A deeply entertaining experience that takes the audience on a journey into the exploration of our heart and ego, whilst providing us with a story line that is relatable, touching and authentically portrayed.
Clare has a wonderful voice and she shines as she shares her array of onstage talents. Her courage is palpable and her passion is infectious.
I highly recommend it. It is an experience, not just a musical."

A PERSONAL FINANCE TRACKER
I love how easy the personal finance tracker it is to use. The questions force me to look at my spending differently and OMG the time tracker, what a life saver. Thank you Clare & Oz for creating this.

My relationship with money has been revolutionised. I am so grateful for Clare’s gentle and respectful approach to helping me face some hard truths about money.
I am now 'dating money' on a daily basis and taking actions that are building financial security week on week. Thanks, Clare!

'What an eye-opening, heart-opening and body awakening experience. Through her playful curiosity, gentle acceptance and carefully selected, expansive exercises, Clare welcomes us back to our most generative, generous selves.
I've done a full University Degree in Creative Writing and never felt such a sense of authenticity between my mind, body, spirit and the sheet of paper in front of me.
If you want to tap into the wisdom of not only your mind, but your body, your soul and something that only the synergy of collaboration can create, I couldn't recommend Clare's works more.'

My Instagram Feed
It is impossible to put into words how much I have learnt with Clare Dea. She really has helped me to make amazing changes to my life inside and outside of my career. Before beginning the training, I was doing work as a creative, but a large portion of the time felt like I was not reaching full potential or freedom in my work and often felt blocked. After beginning the training it wasn’t long before I started to feel big changes in my work, almost like gates opened inside me and allowed me to freely and joyfully tap into my creativity on many different levels. I am now working professionally as a songwriter and performance artist.
