IACCW Member Event: Conscious Writing: Discover Your True Voice Through Mindfulness and More

August 27, 2015

Janey Lee Grace interviews Julia McCutchenJulia McCutchen
on Thursday 3rd September

Conscious Writing is an original approach to creative awakening which leads you to discover your true self and express your true voice – on the page and in the world.

In this interview, Julia McCutchen will explain this deeply holistic and practical journey in to the essence of who you are, and how to express your truth through the stories you tell and the insights you share including:

  • Why ‘going the extra mile’ enables you to discover your core message and naturally stand out from the crowd
  • How to overcome any and all challenges that keep you from fulfilling your creative potential
  • Where to start on your journey to become a fully fledged Conscious Writer
  • How to access the source of your true voice and bring it to each stage of the writing process
  • The steps for creating your own Conscious Writing practice as a reality in your life.

Julia McCutchen is an author, intuitive mentor and the founder and creative director of the International Association of Conscious & Creative Writers (IACCW). Following a successful career as a publisher of spiritual, personal development and lifestyle books (Element and Random House) she experienced a life-changing accident in 1999 which triggered a series of major quantum leaps in her spiritual awakening. Today Julia guides people to discover their true self and express their true voice – on the page and in the world. She is the author of The Writer’s Journey: From Inspiration to Publication and Conscious Writing: Discover Your True Self Through Mindfulness and More (Hay House, September 2015).

3 Ways to Benefit from Going the Extra Mile as a Conscious Writer

August 11, 2015

05. Intothelight351791SmallI am delighted to introduce this edited extract from the Introduction to my new book ‘Conscious Writing: Discover Your True Voice Through Mindfulness and More’ due out on 8 September (Hay House). Enjoy!

Conscious Writing involves a great deal more than simply following the impulse to write and capturing brilliant ideas in a well-crafted collection of words.

Yet writers around the globe have been doing just that for a very long time, and many have achieved impressive success in the eyes of the world.

So let’s remind ourselves why it is worth going the extra mile and opening consciously to deep inner truth as part of our creative writing practice.

IACCW Member Event: Step Out of Your Story: Writing Exercises to Reframe and Transform Your Life

July 30, 2015

Julia McCutchen interviews Kim SchneidermanKimSchneiderman1_c_250
on Thursday 6th August

Every life is an unfolding story, a dynamic, unique, purposeful, and potentially heroic story with bright spots, turning points, and abounding opportunities for personal growth and transformation.

Sometimes the story of our lives read like a comedy; other times, like a tragedy. But if we read the text through the proper lens, we can always read our stories as an adventure of personal growth and our current challenges as a character-development workout.

In this inspiring interview, Kim Schneiderman will introduce a series of structured writing exercises designed to help writers and readers re-imagine themselves as the heroes of their unfolding story with the power to reclaim their personal narrative through choice and voice.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Apply classic storytelling elements to your own life, using the third-person narrative to elevate your perspective
  • View your personal story, and your writing life, through gentler, more compassionate eyes
  • Weave together seemingly fragmented chapters of your life into a meaningful narrative
  • Appreciate how antagonists can help us grow
  • Flesh out your memoir by creating a character sketch of yourself in the third-person narrative
  • Create a “My Life Story” chart to help you organize your memoir.

Kim Schneiderman, LCSW, MSW, is the author of Step Out of Your Story. She counsels in private practice and teaches as a professor and guest lecturer at venues including New York University. She also writes a biweekly advice column for Metro Newspapers and blogs for Psychology Today.

Ms. Schneiderman has been writing professionally for the past 20 years, authoring stories on such topics as addiction, grief, autism, career issues, and spiritual counseling. Visit her online at http://www.stepoutofyourstory.com.

What’s new this month?

July 8, 2015

JuliaMcCutchen_darkpurple150Hi Conscious & Creative Writers!

What a rollercoaster ride the path to publication is! And with just two months to go before my new book is published, it’s the main focus of my creative flow right now.

The intensity of this pre-launch phase involves: finalizing design features, checking proofs and illustrations, creating the content for the journal and audio CD which go with the book, preparing video content, writing copy for new web pages and more, including all my regular work of course – phew!

My yoga / spiritual practice supports me to maintain stillness and space at my core whilst engaging in all of this creative activity; yet there are moments when I just need to walk away from it all and immerse myself in nature.

This is the reality of being an author today!

It’s so different from the writing phase; yet when we pour our heart and soul onto the page, naturally we’re committed to ensuring our work is beautifully presented and reaches the widest possible audience.

Next month we have some pre-launch goodies to share with you, and thank you in advance for understanding that you’ll be hearing from me more often than usual throughout August as we gear up for the 7 September publication date!

In the meantime, I’m honouring my commitment to offer Individually Guided Retreats again this year during October and November although my schedule only allows for 3 places. These will be individually arranged but we need to book them in now to reserve the space! Read more here.

Finally, I’m sharing another extract from my book this month. It comes from Part 2 which is all about Diving in to Creative Flow. I hope you enjoy it and please take a moment to share your reaction to reading it. Thank you.

I’m looking forward to being in touch again next month when we’ll be in full pre-launch mode – exciting!

To your conscious & creative success!

5 Ways to Live the Questions of Creative Enquiry

July 6, 2015

question-479660_350I am delighted to introduce this extract from my new book ‘Conscious Writing: Discover Your True Voice through Mindfulness and More’ published by Hay House on 7 September. Enjoy!

Connecting to our creative core is an essential component of Conscious Writing and requires us to cross the invisible threshold that separates the comfort of what we know from the uncertainty of all we don’t.

When we have the courage to let go of certainties and face the mystery fearlessly we are led directly into the unchartered waters of infinite creative potential.

Yet embracing ‘not knowing’ at the level of the everyday mind provides many of us with a real challenge. We have largely been taught that ‘knowing’ and knowledge are highly prized whereas ‘not knowing’ and ignorance are to be avoided by applying ourselves diligently to learning.

So how do we release the feeling that we should know in order for a deeper level of Knowing to arise? How do we engage consciously with the mystery and become a co-creator with it?

A Genuine Expression of My Creative Core

June 2, 2015

sun-581299_350I am delighted to introduce this extract from my new book ‘Conscious Writing: Discover Your True Voice Through Mindfulness and More’ to be published by Hay House on 7 SEPTEMBER. This will give you a flavour of the ‘Personal Reflections’ section at the end of the book. I wrote these pieces to share my own experiences of the contents of each chapter and to include the challenges I’ve faced and their ultimate resolution. Enjoy!

I am like the seed cracked open by the cold, dark winter whose harsh bite cuts through the closed form that contains the full potential and creates the gap through which life pours.

The literal crack on the crown of my head from a falling stage spotlight dismantles my everyday shell in an instant, yet my journey through the ensuing darkness seems to last an eternity.

The initial glimpse of grace becomes lost in the uncertainty as my body, mind and emotions struggle to surface from the void. I am completely undone. All I can do is breathe.
