How to Follow the Lead of Creative Unfolding

February 3, 2016

ball-443852_250I love the magic and mystery of the creative process; how the invisible realms give rise to a multitude of visible forms – words, pictures, sounds and more.

These often arrive as delightful surprises which surpass all notions of original plans yet frequently reflect a facet of the essential energy we’re drawn to explore through our chosen means of self-expression.

A conscious approach to creativity leads to a rich spring of inspiration that wells up inside us and flows through the twists and turns of our inner landscape to take shape in the outer world.

Yet clues and pointers relating to our creative journey also come from external triggers which reflect back to our conscious awareness different ways of seeing what may be right in front of us, waiting to be noticed.

January 29, 2016

Julia McCutchen interviews Carmine Gallo CarmineGallo_250
on Thursday 4th February

Authors are natural storytellers, but can you turn your ideas into compelling talks and presentations in front of live audiences?

Carmine Gallo has spent 25 years studying the art and science of communication and works directly with leaders who run some of the world’s largest, most admired brands. His approach to communication has been influenced by authors such as Dr. Wayne Dyer and inspirational business leaders such as Steve Jobs, Sheryl Sandberg, Richard Branson and others. Gallo believes that your story is your competitive advantage in the marketplace of ideas. Learn to share it effectively.

In this conversation Carmine will tap into the research he’s used to write his books to demonstrate how authors can speak with power and confidence.

In this interview you’ll learn how:

  • To build a visual message map that provides an easy to follow template for your next presentation.
  • Stories inform, illuminate, and inspire
  • To adapt the building blocks of narrative to deliver a presentation your audiences will always remember
  • Your internal narrative is the key to your ultimate ability to inspire your audiences.
  • To create a ‘wow’ moment in your very next presentation that will leave your audience craving more.

Carmine Gallo is a best-selling author, popular keynote speaker and the communication coach for the world’s most admired brands. Among his eight books are two Wall Street Journal bestsellers, The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs and Talk like TED. In his new book, The Storyteller’s Secret, Gallo features 50 leaders to explain why some ideas catch on and others don’t. Gallo is recognized as one of the most influential voices in business and communication and has been featured in The Wall Street JournalThe New York Times, and ABC’s 20/20.

What’s new this month?

January 8, 2016

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

I hope that you had a fabulous festive season and are looking forward to all that 2016 has in store for you.

Not everyone resonates with the fresh energy of the New Year on 1 January.

And I fully respect that there are many options for celebrating the turn of the year such as 1 November which is Samhain in the Celtic calendar.

My choice is to pay attention and celebrate them all in some way as the end of one phase and the start of the next.

Living a conscious and creative life involves multiple completions and commencements which provide us with excellent opportunities for releasing the old and welcoming the new. This is the energy which has inspired my latest article.

The Next Chapter of Your Life

I’d love to encourage you to make the time and space to make conscious choices about what you want to include in the next chapter of your life.

Hopefully you’ll be inspired to dive ever more deeply into your growth and development as a Conscious Writer, and as ever, we have a couple of offerings to support you to create the reality you envision for yourself:

1. Conscious Writing Retreat: FRI 10 to MON 13 JUNE

I’m delighted to share that booking is now OPEN for this year’s retreat!

There are just a few Early Bird tickets left (people on the ‘Advance Notification’ list snapped up the first few!) so if you think you might like to go for our fabulous retreat experience this year, read more and book your place here.

2. Conscious Writing Scholarship

Applications for our 4th annual scholarship which offers FREE and discounted places for the six month Mentoring Series will open during February. More details in next month’s IACCW Journal.

To your conscious & creative success!

A Conscious Approach to Developing Your Creative Vision for 2016

January 6, 2016

eye-491625_640Life is a series of endings and beginnings. In fact, each moment is a new beginning; and each day, week, month and year we have the chance to engage consciously with the energy of new possibilities and make a fresh start.

I love the sense of potential the New Year brings and always feel recharged by the process of clearing out the old to make way for the new. Having experienced so many major and minor completions and initiations in my life, I appreciate fully the benefits of crafting an inspiring creative vision to act as an energetic blueprint for the next phase.

So here are my suggestions for how to develop your creative vision for 2016:

1. Review the Recent Past

Cast your mind back over 2015 and write in your journal about what you’ve learned, realized and accomplished – as a writer and in all areas of your life.

You may have discovered a new technique to write more freely, fully realized once and for all the importance of making time to nurture your creative soul, and finally taken action to make progress with a project you feel passionate about, however small or large that progress may be. It all counts! (more…)

IACCW Member Event: Finding Genius for Conscious Writing and Creative Authorship

December 31, 2015

MichaelMeade_250Julia McCutchen interviews Michael Meade
on Thursday 7th January

The word ‘genius’ is generally used to describe people with exceptional intellectual or creative ability such as Charles Dickens, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Albert Einstein. Yet the original idea of genius refers to the natural spirit and inner qualities of a person; including god-given talents and the way they are aimed at life.

The inner genius is what our ‘calling’ calls forth; and our job as Conscious Writers is to answer the call and risk our unique destiny. In this interview, we will focus on how to:

  •     Appreciate the qualities of genius and the territories in which genius can be found
  •     Awaken our natural, indigenous genius to discover our greatest creative talents
  •     Follow the unfolding story that has been seeded inside us since before birth
  •     Find stability, direction, and our deepest purpose as Conscious Writers
  •     Discover the true contribution our genius is here to make through our writing and authorship

Michael Meade, D.H.L., is a renowned storyteller, author, and scholar of mythology, anthropology, and psychology. He combines hypnotic storytelling, street-savvy perceptiveness, and spellbinding interpretations of ancient myths with a deep knowledge of cross-cultural rituals. He has an unusual ability to distill and synthesize these disciplines, tapping into ancestral sources of wisdom and connecting them to the stories we are living today. Meade is the founder of Mosaic Multicultural Foundation, a non-profit network of artist, activists, and community builders that encourages greater understanding between diverse peoples. See

    Success With Ease: The Simple Steps to a Fulfilling Career as a Conscious and Creative Writer

    Marc Allen

    Success With Ease: The Simple Steps to a Fulfilling Career as a Conscious and Creative WriterWe all have our own definitions of what it means to succeed – as a writer and in life. Yet most of us have been taught that success requires a great deal of hard work, which is a belief almost all of us have accepted as we’ve grown up in this culture. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We can experience creative success — as we choose to define it — through an approach that has ease at its core.

    Visibility and Vulnerability for Conscious Writers

    Beth Buelow

    Visibility and Vulnerability for Conscious Writers"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." - Ernest Hemingway Doesn’t this perfectly sum up the writing process? We spill our souls in private, and we alternate between feeling exhilarated and terrified (and every feeling in between!). But the writing is relatively easy compared to what’s next: putting it out there. What was private becomes public, and whether that happens in stages or overnight, it can be vulnerable and exhausting. It’s an experience you can’t quite prepare yourself for… or can you?
