Write Your Story with the Power of The Universe: A 7-Week Intensive
Learn how to write powerful stories with spiritual wisdom and the Hero's Journey framework.
Welcome, fellow seeker and storyteller! 🌟
Are you ready to embark on a transformative writing adventure? In this 7-week course, we’ll fuse ancient wisdom with practical screenwriting craft. But more than that—it's a dual Hero's Journey:
The Writer's Journey. We'll dive into the insights of Joseph Campbell and Christopher Vogler, focusing on the nitty-gritty of craft. But here's the twist: we'll filter it through your unique creative expression. Your story isn't a template; it's a living, breathing universe waiting to be born.
Your Personal Journey. Beyond the page, we'll explore our rich inner worlds. Spiritual teachings and energy work will guide us toward alignment—the most authentic versions of ourselves. This isn't just about writing; it's about alchemizing wisdom from deep self-self reflection.
And what's our compass through this mystical terrain?
Energy Exploration. We'll journey through each energy center—from Root to Crown. Discover how these subtle forces influence not only our characters, but also our own emotional arcs. It's like discovering secret passages within ourselves.
Spiritual Insights. Our writing won't be mere words; it'll be infused with cosmic whispers. Intuition, creativity, and authenticity— they'll flow from unseen realms, guiding our pens.
Practical Tools. But theory alone won't cut it. We'll roll up our sleeves and craft a Treatment for your play, pilot, or screenplay. It’s hands-on, actionable magic—the kind that shapes worlds.
Join our supportive community of like-minded spirit-led writers. Spaces are limited, so secure your spot today. Let’s create stories that resonate far beyond the page.

Why Create a Treatment?
As a writer, I’ve embarked on countless creative journeys—some exhilarating, others daunting. But one tool has consistently guided me through the labyrinth of storytelling: the Treatment. Let me share why it’s become my compass, my North Star.
Blueprint for Your Story
A Treatment isn’t just a summary; it’s the architectural blueprint for your narrative. Imagine constructing a building without a plan—the chaos, the uncertainty. Similarly, a story needs structure. By creating a Treatment, you lay out the major beats, character arcs, and pivotal moments. It’s the roadmap that ensures you don’t get lost in the wilderness of my imagination.
Clarity and Focus
Writing a screenplay, pilot, or play can be overwhelming. Ideas swirl, characters chatter, and plotlines tangle. The Treatment forces you to distill your vision into concise paragraphs. What’s the core theme? Who embarks on this journey? What conflicts ignite the narrative? Clarity emerges, preventing aimless wandering during the writing process.
Ever written 100 pages only to realize your plot lacks tension or your climax falls flat? A Treatment saves you from heartache. It’s like diagnosing a health issue in its early stages—easier to address and less painful than waiting until it becomes a crisis. The Treatment will help you spot potential issues before diving into the full script. Plus, you'll get valuable feedback through the Treatment stages to address any holes weekly.
A Treatment isn’t etched in stone; it’s a living, breathing companion. As you write, you can adjust, tweak, and pivot. It’s your creative safety net, allowing you to explore without fear of losing direction. Just as a ship adjusts its sails to catch the changing winds, your Treatment adapts to your evolving narrative.
Pitching and Collaboration
Whether pitching to agents, producers, or publishers, the Treatment is your sales pitch. It succinctly conveys the heart of your story. But it’s not just for industry gatekeepers. Collaborators—directors, actors, editors—rely on Treatments to understand your vision. It bridges the gap between your mind and theirs.
Picture yourself in a writing slump—the words feel heavy, the ideas elusive. Revisit your Treatment. It’s your North Star, your guiding light. It reminds you of the core essence of your story—the heartbeat beneath the words. Like a lighthouse cutting through fog, it guides you through stormy seas toward clarity and inspiration.
So, fellow storyteller, let your Treatment be your compass, your muse, and your unwavering companion. Your Treatment is more than just a summary of your story; it’s an invaluable tool that will help you work through and apply the concepts of the Hero’s Journey Through the Chakras course.
By the end of this course, you’ll have a clear and compelling Treatment that will serve as a roadmap for your writing journey. You’ll also have a deeper understanding of how to craft stories that resonate with your audience and yourself.
