  • Creating from the Space Within

    Creating from the Space Within

    Guest Michael Neill
    Date Thursday 4th January

    There is a space within us where the screenwriter Sacha Gervasi tells us, "time stands still and creative ideas flow through like a river.” It’s the space of pure possibility - point zero for any creative endeavor.

    Join me alongside Michael Neill, author of The Space Within, for a fascinating exploration of how close at hand this deeper potential sits, and how to find it within yourself and spend more time in it in your work.

    We will explore:

    • Why self-esteem and self-confidence are largely irrelevant to your success as a writer
    • How to shift your relationship with a blank page
    • A different way of thinking about discipline
    • Spending more time in the river and less time sitting watching from the shore
    • How do you know when you're done?

    Michael Neill is an internationally renowned transformative coach and the best-selling author of The Inside-Out Revolution and The Space Within. He has spent over 25 years as a coach, adviser, friend, mentor, and creative spark plug to celebrities, CEOs, royalty, and people who want to get more out of themselves and their lives. His books have been translated into 17 languages, and his public talks, retreats, and seminars have touched and transformed lives at the United Nations and on six continents around the world. Michael’s weekly radio show, Living from the Inside Out, has been a listener favorite on Hay House Radio for over a decade; his TEDx talk, 'Why Aren't We Awesomer?', has been viewed by over 150,000 people around the world. You can follow him on Twitter and Facebook, and get access to the Caffeine for the Soul podcast and blog at www.michaelneill.org.

  • What Conscious Writers Need to Know About Writer's Block

    What Conscious Writers Need to Know About Writer's Block

    Guest Rosanne Bane
    Date Thursday 1st February

    Most writers wonder at times what the heck is going on inside their heads when they want to write, but can’t.

    Why do we make progress with our writing for while, then – for no reason we can discern – sabotage our own best efforts? Why do we procrastinate, follow distractions, criticize ourselves, demand perfection and delay the writing that we’ve been given to share?

    It’s so easy to slide into blaming ourselves and feeling embarrassed, guilty and confused. But we don’t experience resistance because we lack will power, discipline or talent. We move forward and we jump back from the thrill/anxiety of writing because that’s what our brains are wired to do. Resistance is just as normal and instinctual as the desire to create.

    When we understand what’s happening inside our brain, we can learn to overcome resistance in the moment and rewire our brain in the long term to develop productive, sustainable writing habits.

    In this session with self-professed brain geek Rosanne Bane, you will:

    • Learn about your brain in easy-to-understand, layperson’s terms
    • Understand why a limbic system takeover trumps your writing commitment and creativity
    • Discover what you can do to reverse those limbic system takeovers and put your creative cortex back in the driver’s seat
    • Recognize why habits are far more valuable and reliable than discipline or will power
    • Identify the three habits that support the writing life
    • Decide which habits you’re ready to adopt and design your commitment plan to build those habits
    • Gain appreciation for your own efforts so far, and be reassured that you can be the writer you want to be and the world needs you to be.

    Rosanne Bane, M.A. is a creativity coach, teaching artist, speaker and author of Around the Writer’s Block: Using Brain Science to Solve Writer’s Resistance and Dancing in the Dragon’s Den: Rekindling the Creative Fire in Your Shadow. A veteran teaching artist of more than 20 years at the Loft Literary Center, University of St. Thomas, University of Minnesota, StoryStudio Literary Center and elsewhere, Rosanne has helped thousands of writers, artists and creative people of all sorts achieve their professional goals and make their creative dreams reality.

    Rosanne specializes in helping creative people understand why it’s so hard (at times) to do the very thing they love to do. Her books, coaching and classes show writers how to break through resistance so they can stop feeling disappointed, frustrated and guilty and get back to doing what they do best and love most.

  • The Power of Self-Belief: Owning Your Worth as a Writer with a Message

    The Power of Self-Belief: Owning Your Worth as a Writer with a Message

    Guest Nancy Levin
    Date Thursday 5th April

    Have you ever asked yourself, “Who am I to write a book?” Are you longing to share your own experience in service of others, but question being good enough? Do you desire giving voice to your truth, yet also fear being fully seen?

    Your greatest gift, your most powerful power is giving voice to your truth. True connection and intimacy can only be found when our vulnerabilities meet in that sweet spot of resonance and recognition. We need your truth because when we read it or hear it, we also feel it—giving us permission to feel ourselves.

    During this interview, best-selling author, master coach and lifelong writer Nancy Levin will guide you to recognize, harness and actualize your strengths inside, as she sheds light on themes including:

    • Uncovering, revealing and expressing your truth
    • Listening the whispers you’ve been shooing away
    • Honoring your resistance
    • Shifting the limiting shadow beliefs that are blocking your power
    • Unconcealing the unconscious commitments that are sabotaging your success
    • Reclaiming your worth out from the hands of others so you’re no longer seeking external validation  

    Nancy Levin is the author of Worthy: Boost Your Self-Worth to Grow Your Net Worth, Jump … And Your Life Will Appear, Writing For My Life. She’s a Master Integrative Coach and the creator of the Jump Coaching and Worthy Coaching Programs, working with clients – privately and in groups – to live in alignment with their own truth and desires. She was the Event Director at Hay House for 12 years and hosts her own weekly call-in show Jump Start Your Life on Hay House Radio. Nancy received her Masters in Creative Writing and Poetics from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado and she continues to live in the Rocky Mountains.
