What’s new this month?

March 10, 2018

Hi Conscious Writers!

I recently shared the story of a magical moment in a mentoring session with a woman who’s exploring Conscious Writing for the first time.

All of a sudden, the struggle to find the core message at the heart of her story and the voice to share what she feels passionate about sharing just dropped away.

Switching the Lights On

It was like someone had switched the lights on and she could see exactly what she needed to do and how to express herself on the page with words that could only come through her.

After many years of false starts and unfulfilled dreams, she felt completely aligned and knew she was on her way at last.

Inner Space of Clarity

I love facilitating that kind of experience for people who have a great deal to share yet can’t quite find their way in to the inner space of clarity required for writing in a truly authentic way.

I’m sharing this with you now as it directly relates to both of the Highlights for this month.

Individual Mentoring – New Six Month Series

Mentoring seems to be in my DNA and I absolutely love working as a mentor!

It’s one of those aptitudes I realized many years ago I was naturally at home with, and combined with my intuitive approach, I’ve witnessed time and again the transformative results it delivers.

In April, a new six month series begins and I’m opening up just 3 places. So if you’re curious to find out how this may benefit you, read more here.

Last Call for One Day Workshop

The breakthrough story above comes from a combination of mentoring and the fact that Conscious Writing genuinely works as an approach to writing authentically in deep flow.

If you’d like to experience the Process live, and meet me and other like-minded writers in person, this is the last call for the Discover Your True Voice through Conscious Writing workshop on Saturday 17 March. Read more here.


I’m delighted to share another success story in the form of celebrating the publication of IACCW Member Susan Nefzger’s first book “A Practical Guide to Awakening”.

Susan is a shining example of what a commitment to Conscious Writing leads to. Read more here. 

Have a wonderfully conscious and creative month!

5 Ways to Lean In to Creative Uncertainty

March 8, 2018

I’ve been developing my ideas for the new project I’ve recently started working on and have been called once more to face an array of unknowns.

I know this space of creative uncertainty with a familiarity that comes from my commitment to living consciously with creativity at the core of who I am and what I do.

The Depths of Discomfort

However that doesn’t mean I’m able to avoid the depths of discomfort relating to the “not knowing” that’s an integral part of the creative process.

I love the fact that my conscious approach leads me over the edge of what I “know” to discover fresh insights and ideas.

Yet it’s genuinely tough to translate the essence I so often realize intuitively into forms which retain the integrity of the message and can be readily communicated, shared and enjoyed by others.

Writing to Discover Your True Gifts – FREE Video Class on Wednesday 28 February

I’m delighted to share that my friend, colleague and bestselling author Mark Matousek is offering a free video class called “Writing to Discover Your True Gifts: 3 Essential Questions to Uncover Your Unique Genius” this coming WEDNESDAY 28 FEBRUARY.

* Embrace the centrality of courage, originality, and imagination as a path to claim your true gifts

* Explore the liberating force of desire as the essential energy for your life… and for accessing your gifts

Celebrating IACCW Member Susan Nefzger’s First Book

February 19, 2018

I’m delighted to share that IACCW member, Conscious Writer (and Conscious Writing Ambassador extraordinaire!) Susan Nefzger has recently published her first book called “A Practical Guide to Awareness”.

She came all the way from Florida to Glastonbury (Somerset, UK) to attend a Conscious Writing Retreat in 2015 where the seeds for this book were planted and the words just “poured” out of her!

She followed that trip up with another attendance at the 2016 retreat and has fully embraced Conscious Writing as a lifestyle choice as well as a way to write her book from the depths of her soul.

I’m filled with admiration for her courage and tenacity which has seen her through to published authorship. Now with a PR background, it’s time to spread the word about the book and I’m delighted to be part of that process so please do click here and check it out.

Huge congratulations to you Susan and I wish you every joy and success with your book and the next phase of your life as a published Conscious Writer!

What’s new this month?

February 12, 2018

Hi Conscious Writers!

One of the aspects I love about writing a regular blog is the opportunity for inspiration to arise from what’s current at the time.

It contributes to me feeling creatively alive when I draw from my life and work to share ideas and stories I feel in that moment may be enjoyable and helpful for you to read – win/win!

Here’s an example…

The Power of Ritual

On the 1st of February it was the festival of Imbolc, one of the cornerstones of the Celtic Calendar.

As I reflected on that, I realized that I love the reminder from such time-honoured festivals about the power of ritual and the immensely positive impact of conscious actions performed mindfully.

It prompted me to write a blog called “The Power of Ritual” which has specific relevance for writers so I’ve included it as this month’s feature article for you to read – see here.

The Ritual of Conscious Writing

Rituals are immensely powerful for making the internal shift from everyday mode into the conscious, present and aligned state of being that Conscious Writing is all about.

In fact, the Conscious Writing Process is a ritual of preparation for downloading your most original ideas and writing authentically from the deep space of truth within.

This is now a thoroughly tried and tested technique which I’ve repeatedly used myself and guided countless others through – so I know it works!

Experience it Live

A high percentage of the people I work with as a mentor use my guided version of this process from the audio CD called “Conscious Writing – The Process”(*) every time they write, and wouldn’t be without it.

Yet there’s nothing quite like experiencing it live along with other Conscious Writers.

The presence in the room is deeply inspiring and quantum shifts are always made relating to the clarity of ideas and depth of flow that comes when the words truly pour through you.

One Day Workshop

I don’t do many one day workshops but I’m delighted to share that I do have one coming up on Saturday 17 March in central London. Read more here.

At the moment it’s the only one scheduled for this year as I’m focusing on a big new project and a 5 day retreat I’m leading in the US from the 9th – 14th September alongside my regular mentoring commitments (more details on all of that soon!)

For now, I’d love to invite you to join me in March if it resonates with you at this time and I hope to have the chance to catch up with you there.

Have a wonderfully conscious and creative month!

* The “Conscious Writing – The Process” CD is available here.

The Power of Ritual

February 8, 2018

The 1 February was the festival of Imbolc, one of the cornerstones of the Celtic Calendar.

Traditionally, as the store of winter provisions started to run out, Imbolc was a time for performing rituals to harness divine energy and ensure the availability of food to see everyone through till the autumn harvest.

Fires would be lit to celebrate the steadily increasing strength of the sun as well as the powers of Brigid, the Goddess of fire, healing and fertility.

Conscious Actions Performed Mindfully

One of the aspects I love about such time-honoured festivals relates to the power of ritual and the immensely positive impact of conscious actions performed mindfully.

Rituals set things apart from the everyday and have the potential to transform your experience from the mundane to the sacred.

Shift Your State of Consciou sness

Whether they’re short and simple or lengthy and elaborate, rituals bring you into the present moment and trigger a shift in your state of consciousness.

Mindfully focusing your energy on a selected intention benefits you in a multitude of ways including boosts to your creativity, commitment and confidence.

IACCW Member Event: What Conscious Writers Need to Know About Writer’s Block

January 25, 2018

Julia McCutchen interviews Rosanne Bane

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 procrastinate, follow distractions, criticize ourselves, demand perfection and delay the writing that we’ve been given to share?

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 Rosanne specializes in helping creative people understand why it’s so hard (at times) to do the very thing they love to do.
