Conscious & Creative Individual Retreats

October 13, 2017

* Just 5 places available! *
NOVEMBER and JANUARY

Claim your right to time and space away from your regular commitments
to take a quantum leap on your journey to write, create and explore your deepest calling with my intuitive guidance and support.

Whether you feel called to write a blog or a book, launch or develop your business and/or access your inner wisdom to navigate change consciously and creatively, it’s tough to make real progress when you’re already feeling stretched.

That’s why I’ve created the opportunity for you to step out of everyday life and focus on developing your ideas and making tangible progress with your chosen priority working one to one with my intuitive guidance and support.

The Conscious & Creative Individual Retreats are tailored to suit your personal project(s), requirements and availability.

They take place in Somerset, south west England and include a mix of guided sessions and time for you to reflect, create, write and apply your insights and realizations.

We start wherever you currently are, and by the end you’ll be absolutely clear about your priorities and the best way to take your next steps.

What’s new this month?

October 7, 2017

Hi Conscious Writers!

Last month I shared the first sparks of a new idea that came to me following my silent retreat – the inspiration to include Conscious Living as a topic alongside Conscious Writing in all areas of my work.

I wasn’t entirely clear what form(s) the essence would initially take; yet here we are four weeks later and I’m ready to reveal what has surfaced!

It didn’t take much reflection for me to realize that creativity is such an integral part of the process for me that it needs to be in the title so Conscious Living has become Conscious & Creative Living.

FREE Live Video Class

The first form the essence will take is a 60 minute FREE live video class on Thursday 19 October.

I’ve spent the last 20+ years exploring my deepest calling to live consciously and creatively in alignment with my soul, and now I feel I have some experience to share.

This interactive class will introduce the Conscious & Creative Living Triad of (i) Foundation (ii) Vision and (iii) Action, and guide you to shift from conditioned to clear vision to transform your experience of life. Read more here.

Conscious & Creative Individual Retreats

I’m also offering up to 5 places for individual retreats again this year and have expanded the focus to include Conscious & Creative Living alongside Conscious Writing.

These individual retreats have been described as “life changing”!

So if you’re feeling called to take a quantum leap on your journey to write, create and explore your deepest calling to live your life purpose consciously and creatively, request an Information Pack here.

Have a wonderfully conscious & creative month!

“No” as a Conscious and Creative Choice

October 5, 2017

Returning to regular life after summer holidays and silent retreats can feel like a real shock to the system.

The spacious freedom gives way to a range of commitments that usually require an immediate shift from being to doing and it doesn’t take long for personal priorities to slide into oblivion.

It’s a transition I’ve learnt to navigate by drawing on the conscious and creative choice to say “no”!

Conscious Choices

This means that the vast majority of the commitments in my schedule now are ones that I’ve consciously chosen and am really happy to follow through on.

I ease into picking up the full load over the first few days and soon find myself in a new rhythm which increasingly includes the spacious energy I’ve enjoyed from my time out as the integration of being and doing.

But it hasn’t always been this way and I know the feeli ng of overwhelm from having too much going on all too well.

And it’s an on-going practice for me to remain vigilant about not initiating too many new projects simultaneously.

Clear Boundaries

Learning to say “no” consciously is not something I’ve ever been taught to do (wouldn’t it be wonderful if the education system actually included a few core life skills!).

IACCW Member Event: Creating Time to Write

September 28, 2017

Julia McCutchen interviews Marney Makridakis

For many writers, time is one of the biggest obstacles to fulfilling their potential. But what if you could mould, craft, and create time to be anything you would like it to be based on the understanding that time is in your hands?

Marney K. Makridakis teaches a pioneering approach to time that goes way beyond time management, and shows how to create time through enlightening ideas, creative perspectives and self-revealing projects to reshape the ways you view, and use, time.

In a dynamic conversation tailored specifically for writers, Marney will introduce her approach to time and explain the practical tools you need to create time for your writing and for enriching the whole spectrum of meaning and purpose in your life.

By the end you will understand:

  • Why traditional time management techniques often don’t work for writers
  • An alternative approach to integrate into our writing – and our whole lives
  • The main challenges that writers have with time
  • Creative, innovative approaches to address these challenges
  • How a new relationship with time can dramatically impact your writing and your life

Marney K. Makridakis is the author of Creating Time: Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim Your Life. She founded the Artella online community for creators of all kinds and the print magazine Artella. A popular speaker and workshop leader, she created the ARTbundance approach of self-discovery through art. She lives in Dallas, Texas.

What’s new this month?

September 12, 2017

Hi Conscious Writers!

I’m just surfacing from my recent silent retreat and soulful immersion in a consciously chosen creative pause.

The silence and space have enabled me to be fully present and experience the deep clarity and sharpened intuitive perception that is an unmistakable quality of presence.

I feel recharged in a way that reaches well beyond simply taking a break; and now I’m truly ready to engage joyfully in the next phase of the unfolding dream.

Conscious Living

It’s become clear to me from this “time out” that alongside my continued commitment to Conscious Writing, I feel increasingly drawn to sharing all that I’ve discovered about Conscious Living as a focus for teaching, mentoring, retreats… and more!

After all, the principles of becoming conscious that I’ve taught in relation to writing over the last few years are one and the same for creative self-expression in all areas of life.

Essence into Form

I do have some new ideas already about a threefold approach to Conscious Living although the exact forms that the essence of this content will take are still in the process of emerging.

However, I am clear that the shift in focus that has naturally been occurring in my mentoring work will lead to Conscious Living becoming an option for the Individually Guided Retreats I’ll be offering from November to January 2018. More details on all of that to come.

For now, as Mercury goes direct and the new energy of September starts to pour through, I’ll leave you with what I hope will be the inspiration to claim some degree of silence and space in your life, and ideally to spend that time in nature. Read more about that here.

New Email Address

Finally, please remember we have a new email address for all IACCW communications from now on. It is iaccw@juliamccutchen.com

Please update your “allowed” email list to include it so we don’t end up in your Junk folder (or retrieve us from there if we do!)

Have a wonderfully conscious & creative month.

Conscious Writing Core Practice # 2: Spend Time in Nature

September 9, 2017

One of the most significant aspects of my recent silent retreat was spending time in nature and immersing myself in the mystery and magic of the natural world.

It is part of my everyday life; yet having an extended period of time to enjoy all that nature has to offer always feels like such a gift.

I’ve had many awe-inspiring experiences in nature over the years and still discover new levels of awareness, alignment and connection as a result.

Tropical Shock

Many years ago, my first visit to a tropical jungle was initially quite a shock to my system.

We’d travelled for what felt like forever on Venezuelan roads riddled with gaping holes and ended up on an undulating dirt track cut right through the forest.

Finally we came to the point where the track simply ran out – the proverbial end of the road!

As we walked the final stretch to the remote retreat centre, all of my senses were on supreme alert.

IACCW Member Event: The Inside Story of Independent Publishing

August 31, 2017

Julia McCutchen interviews Michelle Pilley

Independent publishers have always been a strong creative force in the publishing world. Those who are thriving in the market today have developed a different, sustainable way of publishing which has enabled their businesses and their authors to thrive.

Hay House is a shining example of the new face of independent publishing. As a curator of content, they lead the way with a strong commitment to finding creative solutions for one of the key questions facing us all: how to put great books in front of the people who are interested in reading them?

Join us to hear what Hay House UK managing director and publisher Michelle Pilley has to say on:

  • How the book industry has changed in the last five years
  • Where traditional publishers still triumph over self-publishing
  • What makes an author attractive to an independent publisher
  • How to develop a strong author profile and platform
  • The challenges in the market right now
  • Future opportunities for authors

Michelle Pilley is the managing director and publisher of Hay House UK. She started work as an assistant to a Publisher of a vintage car and bike company and did her editorial training at a business consultancy. After a couple of years travelling, Michelle returned to the UK to work for Waterstone’s where she was able to explore her passion for spirituality and Mind Body Spirit topics. Since then she has worked at HarperCollins where she became the Senior Commissioning Editor for MBS, then Features Editor for Kindred Spirit magazine, she helped set up Anita Roddick’s publishing house, and finally joined Hay House Inc in 2002 to form Hay House UK.  For more information visit www.hayhouse.co.uk

What’s new this month?

August 18, 2017

Hi Conscious Writers!

The month of August is usually associated with summer holidays, and here in the UK it’s no big surprise for it to be distinctly on the cool side and pouring with rain outside!

It’s a far cry from the hot sunny days I remember from childhood.

Nevertheless, it’s still a good moment to take a break of some kind and step off the merry-go-round of endless activity relating to business and personal projects.

The Value of Space

I’ve had my fair share of perpetual busyness over the years and experienced the pendulum swing of extremes from sublime stillness to ridiculous levels of ripping through my perceived priorities at lightning speed.

I learnt the hard way just how damaging that habitual pattern can be and have come to value internal and external space extremely highly.

It’s not just good for my health and well-being; I’ve also discovered from both personal and professional experience just how much difference space makes to the clarity and quality of my creative flow.

A Creative Pause

So right now I’m consciously choosing to take a creative pause and felt inspired to write a blog post about the value of space in the creative cycle – see here.

Wherever you are in relation to the significance of space, I hope this will encourage you to appreciate space and include more of it in your life to honour your creative cycle and your joie de vivre.

Have a wonderfully conscious & creative month.
