EXPERIENCE

Writing

with Spirit

workshops and courses to empower your creative self

White Paper

Writing can be scary and it is so easy to find a million reasons not to pursue the very vulnerable and magical act. EMPOWER THE WRITER WITHIN is a two-day 8-hour workshop that helps give you the tools to release the blocks and follow that inner call. 

This Weekend Intensive uses a combination of REIKI, DISCUSSION, and WRITING EXERCISES we will move through each Energy Center to remove the fears and blocks that get in the way of expressing this truth.

During our time together in WRITING WITH SPIRIT: EMPOWER THE WRITER WITHIN we will move through each energy center from Root to Crown removing blocks and resistance in order to open up to our creative, empowered selves. 

We will use a combination of DISCUSSION, WRITING EXERCISES, and REIKI HEALING in this Weekend Intensive workshop to connect with your divine creative impulses and shine light on the ways resistance reveals itself in your creative life.

This Workshop is for you if:​

  • You love to write but don't know where to begin

  • You've been writing so long you may have forgotten that magical feeling of inspired creation

  • You tip-toe around the idea of calling yourself a Writer

  • You talk yourself out of following your true creative impulses

  • You don't remember what your artistic voice is because of all the outside influences

  • You haven't felt creative because of These Times and are ready to invest the time and energy to reconnect

  • You love the nexus of woo woo and creativity​

This Workshop is:

  • A space to explore your Self and your Voice 

  • A space to shed and transmute and reveal

  • A space for experimentation with Voice and writing: break form! try on a persona! Let's play!

This Workshop is NOT:

  • A place to learn about the fundamental rules of writing and formatting -- our goal is to let those go for a couple days to connect with what we want to say when we're not held to outside standards and pressure.

  • A place to produce pages -- our goal is to write in whatever form  may show up over the weekend, even if it's a break from our traditional genre. All writing is writing.
