Community Highlights: Meet Patricia Chica of Chi Energy Coaching

Today we’d like to introduce you to Patricia Chica.

Hi Patricia, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today.
Since I was a teenager, I have been involved in almost every position in the film and TV industry: from Director to Casting Director; Writer to Producer; Videographer to Editor, and even as a Photographer and Publicist.

To be a great director and coach, I knew I needed to master every aspect of my profession to better understand the filmmaking process and therefore become a stronger leader for my team.

While my accumulated field experience supported my filmmaking journey and personal growth, it was my understanding of Chi Energy, a creative method I developed, that helped me to express authentic storytelling by tapping into my inner energy awareness, my intuition, and higher consciousness.

The techniques and methods that I have used for myself, I now share with my cast, crew, collaborators, and coaching clients. It has become a powerful mindset tool to influence their creative process by realizing the intentions of their work and performance, as well as aid in their day-to-day life.

Throughout my life, I have trained with masters that focus on mind and body integration practices ranging from Meditation, Kundalini yoga, Reiki, Shamanism, Business & Mindset Strategies, Body Expression, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Healing, Role-Play, and more. I have borrowed tools and techniques from each of these disciplines to create a coherent system that is customized to serve entertainment industry professionals – actors, directors, writers, producers, and crew members in particular.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It has been a very enlightening road filled with challenging experiences that contributed to my personal and professional growth.

The harder the setbacks, the more they have taught me and guided me to now understand what I teach at a deeper level. I have failed many times, and each failure has brought the wisdom I needed to learn and evolve so as to make different choices, in a more intentional way.

Not listening to my intuition or gut feeling has set me back more than once. For example, I have been too keen to get involved in professional relationships, too fast or too soon, out of desperation, even though my intuition sent me nudges that something was off about those people. Every time I let my ego or mind drive my actions, either my well-being or my projects have suffered. Those setbacks definitely served me as lessons to always listen to my inner wisdom and trust that it is there to guide me.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Patricia Chica – Chi Energy Coaching?
I produce, direct, coach, and run three businesses.

FLIRT FILMS ( is a production company that manages my I.P. and in-house projects in the film and television industry).

CHICART PRODUCTIONS ( is a consultancy company that helps filmmakers get outstanding media coverage so the conversation around their films and careers continues beyond the screening experience.

CHI ENERGY COACHING ( This is the business I’m the most excited to talk to you about in this interview because Chi Energy education is the unique proposition and original angle I bring to everything I do as a creative teacher.

ABOUT MY CHI ENERGY COACHING SERVICES. State-of-the-art coaching bridging chi and mindset strategies that help elevate performance and results at the highest level of consciousness, behind or in front of the camera.

This method makes it easy to understand metaphysical concepts with simple techniques everyone can use to elevate their creativity, mindset, communication skills, intuition, and most importantly RESULTS.

The purpose of my work in any of these companies is to tell stories that empower and inspire audiences worldwide and at the same time bring an energy awareness to every aspect of their creation. Our work has a strong socially-conscious message and an author-driven artistic sensitivity. We produce in a holistic manner, from inception to promotion; connecting storytelling with higher consciousness in order to expand the creative process and accelerate the results.

Chi Energy is a very unique creative process that I have developed, which connects one’s energy centers with intuition, mindset, language, and body expression in order to expand their creative potential, as a performer or storyteller, and to reach their desired outcome faster.

Also, Chi Energy allows you to change your reality through intentional strategies and behavior since how you are from within affects the people and environment around you. When creatives work on a project together, it is crucial to be aware of the energy we carry and how it can impact the entire group. My highest intention is for any creative person to learn these tactics, which derive from ancient knowledge and that serve modern applications to support our contemporary lives. It’s a new way of creating that will make our industry a much more conscious and evolved space.


I offer highly curated training, one, in particular, is the Rising Stars Program, which I’m very proud of. I only accept a handful of Rising Stars per year for this certified program.
In this 1-year program, I take a mentee under my wing. I design a rigorous program based on their 3 top career goals. Each month, I guide them through the customized exercises and action steps created for them specifically so they become an authority in their field, from where they are right now to even further than where they want to be. This program is perfect for Actors, Writers, Directors, Producers, and Creatives in any area of the film and television industry.

What the program includes is 2 private coaching sessions per month during that year, direct contact with me by text, phone, and email, and VIP access to the recorded programs and workshops I have under the Chi Energy umbrella.

By being one of my protégé(e)s, I give them access to insider industry information, educational opportunities, introductions, recommendations, and access to VIP events at Cannes, Sundance, TIFF, Hollywood Red Carpet Premieres, etc if they can attend in person.

I also create a powerful strategy to brand them, teach them how to speak in public, on social media, and in TV/radio interviews, and I use my PR skills to promote them.

Only selected participants are selected to take part in this program. I’m truly looking for the next Rising Star to create legacy work and significant global impact.

This program is about following a strategy to raise your career to the next level, receiving continual guidance, feedback, and accountability, and constantly learning, growing, and surpassing your goals.

I offer different services such as individual coaching, career coaching, acting coaching, group workshops, preparation for a role or an important audition, preparation for a pitch presentation, film or TV project accompanying, career mentorship, project feedback (scripts, pitch decks, self-tapes, and rough cuts) and much more.

Rates vary depending on the type of demand but I do not work under $300/hour.

I’m also one of the mentors on the educational platform and I am starting teaching at INIS – Institut National de l’Image et du Son (a prestigious film and TV school in Montréal).

What do you like and dislike about the city?
I love Los Angeles because there is a strong community of conscious artists, actors, and creatives who value their personal growth and impact the world in a positive way.

What I dislike about the city. I love L.A. for the most part but I avoid people and situations who are toxic, and who operate in a low vibration. Energy awareness allows one to not get trapped in those circles.


  • $300/hour of coaching
  • $5K/year for the Rising Star Program
  • $2K to $5K/day for group training on Hollywood productions.
