What’s new this month?

March 13, 2015

JuliaMcCutchen_darkpurple150Hi Conscious & Creative Writers!

As the days lengthen and the light increases with the onset of spring here in the northern hemisphere, I’m delighted to share that my new book is now finished!

I am somewhat in awe of the of the intensely challenging and richly rewarding process of having written this book from the deepest inside out space it has been possible for me to inhabit at this time.

Yet, stepping back and reviewing the manuscript with a fresh eye after a short break, it feels very much like ‘mission accomplished’!

I’ll look forward to hearing your reaction when it is published in September. In the meantime, there are two opportunities for you to experience the contents directly to guide and support your conscious and creative projects this year.

Scholarship 2015 – Applications Invited

Applications for our 3rd annual scholarship which offers FREE and discounted places for the six month Mentoring Series are now invited.

This opportunity to receive intuitive professional guidance to make tangible progress with your writing ideas has been described as a deep and transformative experience… by the end of the Scholarship, I had completed the first draft of my book.”

The application deadline is the Spring Equinox, Saturday 21 March. To read more, click here.

Conscious Writing Retreat – Two Pay Option

The Early Bird tickets for our retreat which is taking place from Friday 22 to Monday 25 May are now sold out but we have introduced a two pay option so that you can spread the investment over two months.

Why not join us and give yourself the gift of time and space away from the regular routines of everyday life to focus on moving your writing ideas and project(s) forwards this year?

The immersion in three days of conscious living and deep creative exploration will be a memorable and rewarding experience. But don’t just take my word for it – watch some video testimonials and read the words of previous participants by clicking here.

Finally, it seems appropriate to share an edited extract from my book with you this month. It is a reminder of the importance of nurturing your creative soul at every phase of the creative cycle. Read the article by clicking here.

Nurturing Our Creative Soul as Conscious Writers

March 11, 2015

I am delighted to share this edited extract from my new book, ‘Conscious Writing: How to Write from Your Heart with the Voice of Your Soul’ (Hay House, September 2015). Enjoy :-)

creative_wellNurturing our creative soul as Conscious Writers involves frequently filling our inner creative well so that it never runs dry and always allows our creativity to flow freely.

Conscious Creativity teaches us to do this by connecting with the whole creative cycle, and honouring each and every phase.

Yet such an approach is rarely accepted as a valid use of our precious time. Instead we are drawn by the demands of contemporary life in the western world to busy ourselves with endless ‘doing’, and direct our energy exclusively outwards to support family and friends, earn our living, and maintain our personal space.

Whilst we all need to honour our commitments respectfully, let’s remember this process begins with honouring our commitments to ourselves.

In the fast lane of doing all that seems essential, we often forget to replenish our inner resources beyond basic recharging which sees us through to the next stint on the treadmill of activity.

As a result, our output frequently far outweighs the input so we end up feeling exhausted, empty, and eventually, resentful and unwell. No wonder creative dreams are so often unfulfilled!


Full Member Profile – Shelley Hawkins

March 10, 2015

ShelleyHawkins_NEW1501. When did you realize you wanted to write and how long was it before you took action to turn your dream into reality?  

On my 13th birthday, my oldest sister gave me a journal. It was called an empty book at the time. “You write your thoughts in it,” she said. So I did. My adolescent frustrations and observations found their way to those pages with spotty regularity.

Years later, during the ten year transformative experience of environmental illness my writing began in earnest and entered my mind as something to “do.”

An ongoing email conversation with a dear friend, Doug, during those years of relative isolation help me develop my thought processes on virtual paper and the flame was lit.

2. What kind of writing do you do or want to do? 

So far, I have focused on non-fiction and a bit of poetry. I have focused on inspiring others in becoming themselves, living the intentional, creative, and inspired life, and the ability to live deliberately with greater understanding of living from a quantum perspective.

IACCW Member Event: How to Maximise Your PR and Media Success as a Conscious Writer

March 5, 2015

Julia McCutchen interviews Janey Lee GraceJaney-lee-grace_250
on Thursday 12th March

There are three areas of PR that every successful author, expert and teacher should have some knowledge and experience of. As of today, how would you rate yourself from 1 – 10 as a:

  • Public Speaker?
  • Great interviewee?
  • Go-to expert for print media, radio and TV?

When a journalist calls from a mainstream publication you need to know how to handle that call. When a producer wants to book you for a TV show, you need to feel quietly confident. And when you are asked to do a TED talk, you need to know how best to prepare yourself to shine.

In this interview you will learn:

  • What the media (journalists / producers) are looking for and importantly what they aren’t!
  • What it means for us as authors to “be the brand”.
  • How to establish our USP as authors.
  • How to present ourselves credibly to attract opportunities and then maximize them.
  • How to develop a solid PR and Media Strategy.
  • How to prepare for an event like a TED talk so you can speak with clarity and confidence.

Janey Lee Grace is the author of five books including an Amazon No 1. She is a freelance journalist and a Media Relations expert specializing in helping individuals and experts get clarity on their USP and find the right PR strategy get their message out to a wider audience.  Janey has worked in the media for over 25 years, and is currently a presenter on the UK’s most listened to Radio Station BBC Radio 2. She has also worked as a TV presenter and in production.  Janey incorporates her own experience in getting her own book to become an Amazon number one best seller. For more information see

Conscious Writing Scholarship – Applications Invited!

February 20, 2015

CW_Scholarship_2014_LORES._150jpg“Do your little bit of good where you are.
It’s those little bits of good put together
that overwhelm the world.”
Desmond Tutu

To learn how you can receive individual guidance and support
to do your “little bit of good” as a Conscious Writer in 2015
click here

Desmond Tutu’s words have become associated with the annual Conscious Writing Scholarship and Mentoring Series, and I am delighted to announce that Applications for 2015 are now open!

They aren’t the exact words I would use to express my passionate belief that as artists of life we are all living a Hero’s Journey. When we do so consciously and creatively, we make the greatest possible contribution and receive the greatest possible reward. Yet the essence of Desmond Tutu’s message is pointing in the same direction.

It is the direction of wholeness and alignment, where head and heart team up with words and actions, and connect with something greater than our individual selves to inspire our ideas, insights and stories.

Doing a little bit of good at the IACCW with our 3rd Conscious Writing Scholarship offering

The resounding success of the experience for all participants of the Scholarship so far has strengthened our commitment to offering it again this year.

Choosing Happiness

February 11, 2015

CH-Cover-200x278Hi Conscious & Creative Writers!

I’m delighted to support Inspired Living Publisher Linda Joy with the launch of her new book today called Inspiration for a Woman’s Soul: Choosing Happiness.

The book features the soul-inspiring stories of 27 amazing women who share their intimate stories of transformation. It also includes Reflection Questions after each story which will empower you to integrate the vital lessons of each woman’s journey into your own life.

I love the collaborative nature of the creation and publication of this book. It’s inspiring to see what possibilities are available to us all as authors today. The content is certainly a key component of all that we teach related to Conscious Writing, which in itself is a powerful journey of transformation that leads to authentic happiness and creative fulfilment.

There are over 40 transformational gifts on offer (for a limited time) if you decide to dive in and purchase your own copy of Choosing Happiness, so here’s where you can read more and see the courageous writers who have decided to step up and share their story

Enjoy :-)

On Being a Writer: A Path of Enquiry

Robert Holden

On Being a Writer: A Path of EnquiryTrue creativity has been described as a living enquiry and the creative act of writing is replete with uncertainty. This can deter all but the most committed creative souls from facing the blank page with courage and fortitude. Yet, when we approach writing as a path of enquiry, we learn to ‘live the questions’ as Rainer Maria Rilke famously advised in his seminal work Letters to a Young Poet. In doing so, the answers gradually present themselves.
