What’s new this month?

September 7, 2016

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

Here in the UK, I often experience what feels like a dramatic shift between the months of August and September with a few mixed feelings.

As the temperature drops and the nights draw in, there’s a requirement to let go of summer and embrace the onset of autumn.

The natural world always beautifully echoes the conscious and creative journey. We endlessly move on from all that has been and prepare ourselves for the next phase of our inspiration to take new forms of authentic expression.

Conscious Writing LIVE Online Course

The next new form of my authentic expression has taken shape as a 6 week course to discover and express your true voice.

For the first time, you can experience Conscious Writing taught LIVE in an experiential and interactive teleclass format so you can participate from wherever you are in the world without the need to travel!

If you have a creative writing project for your blog, book or business that you’d like to start, develop or complete, this practical course will provide the structure, support and positive accountability you need. Read more here.

1st Anniversary

Amazingly, September is also the one year anniversary of the publication of my book Conscious Writing!

To celebrate, we’re offering 25% off the list price for a signed copy of the book together with the Conscious Writing -The Process audio CD as a discounted and personalized package.

This will be available for a limited time only. So if you haven’t yet experienced what Conscious Writing has to offer you or if you know someone who dreams of writing but is struggling to make that a reality, now is a perfect moment to dive in. Read more and purchase using the links in the box at the top of this page.

Heal Yourself with Conscious Writing

September 5, 2016

mandala-1302804_640I’ve worked with many writers over the years who feel that writing is an absolute lifeline they can’t do without. Zen Buddhist, teacher and author Gail Sher says that it saved her life. Others feel that it restores their sanity in a crazy and chaotic world.

The therapeutic benefits of writing are well documented and include easing the feelings of emotional trauma, reducing stress, solving problems more effectively and even speeding up physical healing.

Conscious Writing incorporates all of these and guides us into the deepest realms of true healing; healing that restores our innate sense of wholeness.

Whether we realize it or not, we all have what we could call an ‘original wound’ which is the convincing illusion of separation from oneness with all that is.

Healing this primal wound happens naturally when we dissolve everything that gets in the way of us realizing our true nature as an expression of wholeness and transform our lives to become authentic reflections of our soul.

So how does Conscious Writing contribute to this core process of healing and transformation?

IACCW Member Event: How to Connect with Your Creative Wise Woman as a Conscious Writer

September 1, 2016

Julia McCutchen interviews Rebecca CampbellRebeccaCampbell_250
 on 8th September

This era we are living in has been prophesied by the mystics and the sages of all of the ages. The Mayan’s called it the New Dawn, Yogi Bhajan called it The Aquarian Age, some call it the end of Patriarchy, Rebecca Campbell calls it the Age of Light or the Age of the Lightworker.

We are all being called to light up the world with our presence and for so many of us, our creations and writing are the vehicles through which we will do this.

In this inspiring call we will discuss:

  • How to hear the call of your soul and answer it
  • What creations are rising in you right now
  • How to tap into your inner wisdom and hear the whispers of your soul and creative muse
  • Why so many people are scared to share their voice and how to overcome it
  • The power of the female cycle when it comes to creativity
  • The seasons of creativity
  • Tapping into your innate ancient wisdom
  • Inviting Mother Earth to create through you
  • How to find your authentic voice and tribe
  • How to work with and call in your creative muse

Rebecca Campbell is a bestselling author, spiritual teacher, grounded spiritual mentor and soulful guide. Rebecca has guided thousands of women to listen to the callings of their soul and create a life that is completely aligned to them. Her first book Light Is The New Black will be followed by her second Rise Sister Rise in October 2016. Rebecca has received multiple awards including the ‘Promising New Talent’ by the Mind Body Spirit Festival in London, the ‘Emerging Voice’ award by Kindred Spirit Magazine and the ‘100 Women of Spirit’ award by the Brahama Kumaris for feminine leadership and spiritual service. Drawing on her unique experience as an award winning advertising creative director, Rebecca loves helping people tap into their creativity and lead from a place that is authentic and light up the world in a way that only they can.

6 Weeks to Discover and Express Your True Voice

August 27, 2016

Consious_Writing_Image_No_Text_500“Don’t die with the music still in you!” bestselling author Wayne Dyer implored.

I couldn’t agree more.

Yet I also know from almost 30 years of personal and professional experience it’s tough to find your way in to your creative core where you discover the “music”, the unique sound of your true voice.

Fortunately, there is a practical way forwards in the form of a tried and tested approach to writing with depth, authenticity and impact; it’s called Conscious Writing.

Now, for the first time, it’s available for you to experience with my direct teaching, guidance and support from wherever you are in the world without the need to travel!

The Conscious Writing LIVE Online Course
is an experiential and interactive 6 week process
that leads you to discover your most original ideas,
and express your authentic voice on the page and in the world.

It starts on THURSDAY 22 SEPTEMBER – the autumn equinox which is a perfect time to harvest the fruits of the creative seeds you’ve already planted at some level within you.

Intuitively it will feel right if you’re a writer, coach, consultant, therapist, trainer or business owner looking to communicate your creative ideas authentically through a blog, book or business communication, this practical course will show you how.

writingscene2You’ll learn how to:
  • Write from the level of your true self, the eternal part of you that’s free from everyday anxieties and fears.
  • Align your head with your heart, body and soul to open up a deep space within you where you’ll find the true source of your writer’s voice and your most original ideas.
  • Release your limiting beliefs and clarify your purpose to develop your core message, what you’re most passionate about sharing with others.

What’s new this month?

August 4, 2016

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

With summer well and truly underway here in the UK, we’ve had our usual mix of warm sunshine and wet days.

This reminds me of the ups and downs of the creative process and the reality of authorship. As conscious writers, we all need to develop resilience in order to stay the course to completion and beyond!

We also need to carve out proper time and space to dive in to developing our ideas and doing our writing over and above the short regular stints we usually do, and the summer is a wonderful time to do just that.

Without this kind of creative immersion, our projects often take far longer than we’d ideally like and sometimes run out of steam altogether, ending up gathering dust at the back of the cupboard.

Individually Guided Conscious Writing Retreats

This month I’m offering you the opportunity to immerse yourself in your creative ideas and writing on a one, two or three day retreat working with me in person and on a one-to-one basis.

Wherever you are on your creative journey and no matter how little or how much experience you have, the retreat is tailored to suit your exact needs.

Perhaps you’re not yet clear about what ideas to focus on and haven’t written a word? Or maybe you’re already a blogger, author or coach ready to explore your next creative and business steps?

These individually guided retreats will take place on dates to be agreed between us during the months of August, September, October and November. Read more here.

Conscious Writing Online Course

If you’re not able to travel to attend an in-person retreat, you might be interested in the new online course that I’m in the process of creating.

It’s going to be a wonderful new way for you to experience conscious writing and I’m looking forward to sharing more information about it with you soon.

In the meantime, if you’d like to sign up to receive advance notification about it, simply send me an email here or use

Finally, I’m delighted to share the details of a Super Natural Healing Summit which starts on Monday 15 August. The focus is How to Create Emotional, Physical and Spiritual Health and Lead Your Thriving Joyful Life and you can listen to my interview on the healing aspects of conscious writing for free on Friday 26 August. Read more here.

Till next month…

Create Space for Conscious Creativity

August 3, 2016

zen-970477_640From the earliest times, sages and mystics have shared an abundance of secrets for waking up to our true nature and becoming fully conscious.

Even the simple yet timeless technique of paying attention to the flow of the breath in and out of our body is a powerful way to still the chatter of our everyday mind and open the way for deeper levels of awareness to arise.

As we increasingly open to there being more to life than meets the eye, we discover a naturally occurring creative impulse that seeks expression in the world.

Making space for a conscious approach to expressing this creative impulse leads us to discover our true calling and make the contribution we’re here to make. Ultimately we reap the full rewards of conscious and creative living as our lives become an authentic reflection of our soul.

What is conscious creativity?

Conscious creativity is a combination of self-realization (conscious) and self-expression (creativity). It’s a holistic way to align ourselves with the creative flow of life and validate the inclination we all have for authentic self-discovery and expression.


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

July 28, 2016

Julia McCutchen interviews Nancy LevinNancyLevin_cropped_213
on 4th August

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. You can visit her online at 


What’s new this month?

July 6, 2016

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

What an amazing experience we all had at the sold out Conscious Writing Retreat a few weeks ago!

Powerful from the start, the transformative energy rippled through each and every one of us. Immersion in the tools and techniques of conscious writing and creative living led to comments such as this:

‘A pristine space to give birth to new creations; an inspiring space to envision; a safe space to reflect; a loving space to connect.’
Kelley Osborne, writer, teacher and healer.

If you’d like to see some retreat photos, check out this blog post here.

Centre Stage

Following a short break to recharge after the retreat, the creative impulse continues to flow through me and has led to a strong inclination for a new creation to take centre stage now.

Originally I intended to offer the Mentoring Scholarship again this year. However, it seems like the ‘universe’ has other plans for me as my intuition is definitely nudging me towards creating a Conscious Writing Online Class.

Given the international nature of the IACCW membership and geographical restrictions that are a fact of life for many people, I’m inspired to share this holistic approach to discovering and expressing your true voice through a series of online classes.

Watch this space for more information coming soon and register for advance information here. You might also like to check out this month’s FREE and FULL Member Event on the same topic here.

Transitions and Transformation

In the meantime, you may remember that last month I shared a recent ‘aha’ moment of realization that all the people I work with are either on the brink or in the middle of some kind of transition. These relate to their process of self-discovery, creative unfolding, writing aspirations, and more.

As usual, I’ve dived straight in to explore that topic and written an article for the current issue of Aspire magazine called Conscious & Creative Self-Care for Women in Transition. It’s already triggered a positive response which is very rewarding – for more on that, see here.

If you enjoy reading it, do please post a comment at the end. It makes all the difference in the world to know your reaction to my creative offerings, and thank you in advance for your understanding and action!

Till next month…

    Creating from the Space WithinThere 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.
