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.

Hi Conscious Writers!

What an exceptional retreat experience we all had this year!

It was an utterly amazing group of women, and I feel deeply honoured to have had the opportunity to guide and facilitate their process of creative awakening and authentic self-expression.

Witnessing the emergence of their clarity about who they truly are and their expansion of confidence to share what they’re here to share was like seeing beautiful flowers open from tightly closed buds and come into full bloom.

Comments and Quantum Leaps

Comments such as “my life is changed forever”, “truly transformational”, “beyond amazing”, “a gateway to the authentic me”, “quite honestly, I’m blown away by the results”… say it all (read more feedback here).

It’s confirmed for me beyond any shadow of doubt that experiencing my conscious and creative approach in person at a retreat is one of the most powerful ways for people to take massive quantum leaps!

So this may have been the last retreat at this particular venue, but I remain completely committed to leading retreats going forwards and I’ll be intrigued to see how everything takes shape in the coming months.

Online Retreat

In the meantime, a virtual retreat experience may not equate to what I’ve described above, but it does mean you can participate from wherever you are in the world.

So I’m delighted to share that you can join me and 25 visionaries from around the world for the Art of Spiritual Living Online Retreat which starts on Sunday 23 July.

I’m speaking about what spiritual living means to me and how conscious writing is both an approach to and an expression of what I call conscious living.

I also lead a guided practice with a live writing exercise so I do hope you’ll register for the event to enjoy my session as well as all the others which include intentional creativity, conscious movement and more – read the detail here.

Have a wonderfully conscious & creative month!

Hi Conscious Writers!

I love it when the universe delivers real and resonant opportunities seemingly out of the blue!

This has been my experience on numerous occasions over the years and every time it happens, I pause to acknowledge the ‘greater forces’ at work.

This month, both of the Highlights are examples of this phenomenon.

Highlight #1

The Conscious Writing Retreat for Women (last call for Early Bird tickets – deadline FRIDAY 9 JUNE!) grew out of a ‘chance’ conversation and an introduction to the amazing venue we’ve been using for the last 4 years. Read more here.

Highlight #2

And a couple of months ago, I received an invitation to speak at a FREE Interview Series called The Power of Writing which starts on MONDAY 26 JUNE.

In all honesty, I often find myself declining such invitations as it’s a high priority for me to feel a genuine sense of resonance with the energy and intentions behind the people and the purpose of events like this.

On this occasion, it’s been a real pleasure to connect with host Dawn Purcell’s enthusiasm for presenting a series of interviews that will genuinely guide writers to develop a powerful writing practice that is inspired, consistent and fulfilling.

My interview will be available for 48 hours and will be aired again, at the end of the series, for an additional 72 hours. Read more here.

Perhaps one or both of these opportunities will resonate with you too?

If so, I urge you to pay attention to your intuitive nudge and follow through straight away. If not now, when?

Have a wonderfully conscious & creative month!

Hi Conscious Writers!

I’ve written before about endings and beginnings being an integral part of living a conscious and creative life.

The creative process itself is all about riding the wave of the alpha and omega cycle.

As well as being the nature of creation, this is also wonderful training for learning to trust the unseen forces at work in the universe even when you can’t see the what, the why or the how!

I’m sharing this with you because I’ve recently discovered that the venue we’ve used for our annual retreats over the last four years may not continue as a retreat centre beyond 2017 – an unexpected ending!

Last Time

So this is likely to be the last time that we offer the Conscious Writing Retreat for Women in its current form at Abbey House in the sacred landscape of Glastonbury.

Given that I’m entering a whole new phase of my work generally, I’m remaining open to new possibilities for retreats to take new forms and be held in new spaces for 2018 and beyond.

If you have any thoughts about the kind of retreat you’d love to experience and/or know of any amazing retreat centres that might welcome our conscious and creative approach, do please drop me a line at Julia@JuliaMcCutchen.com

This Year’s Retreat

For now, I’m gearing up for this year’s retreat and truly looking forward to what I’m sure will be the best event so far; especially in the light of this unforseen development.

So if you’d like to experience this deep and transformative retreat for women who are drawn to write consciously, creatively and authentically, and enjoy the sacred energy of this special venue, read more here.

FREE Video Chat

Before then you might also like to watch the next FREE Video Chat that I’m having with my friend and colleague Jackee Holder on The Transformative Power of Journaling.

We’re both life-long journal writers with our own distinct approach and have so much to share with you on a range of different journaling techniques you may not have come across before to boost your confidence, your creativity and more! Read more here.

I hope you’ll tune in to this as well as our next IACCW Member Event with bestselling author Carmine Gallo who’s speaking on 5 Storytelling Techniques to Craft Your Signature Talk. So much to look forward to 🙂

Have a wonderfully conscious & creative month!

Hi Conscious Writers!

Over the last few weeks I’ve poured a great deal of energy into the everyday admin that keeps all of my creative projects running smoothly.

Much as I love being immersed in the creative process, paying attention to the mundane matters that provide the foundation on which to build new possibilities is so important and definitely has its own reward.

In fact I’ve found that being organized at every level actually frees up the space and energy for a more dynamic creative flow to occur through a beautiful balance of the feminine and masculine energies.

Walking the Path

And it’s a real joy for me to share such discoveries with others!

In reality everything I teach comes from walking the path myself and passing on the benefit of my insights and experience from so many years of personal and professional practice.

This principle also applies to my latest creative offering which comes in the form of a brand new four week online course that I’ll be teaching live by video.

Unlock Your Creativity with Conscious Writing

As I wrote in a recent blog post, like so many of the people I work with, my growing up years lacked any kind of encouragement to develop my natural creativity.

In fact the opposite was true; I was taught that creativity was an optional extra to be reserved for hobbies and weekends.

It took a life-changing accident for me to re-organize my priorities and consciously re-build my life to live in alignment with the creative soul I truly am.

So I know the journey of unlocking your creativity only too well!

Call Forth the Real Creative You

This course is for you if you’re as ready as you’ll ever be to call forth the real creative you and claim your right to create and write what you’re here to create and write. Read more here.

I hope this will inspire you to take action on your creative impulse to write and live in alignment with your soul.

Have a wonderfully conscious & creative month!

Hi Conscious Writers!

This month’s newsletter is slightly later than usual because of unexpected technical challenges that were waiting for me following my lovely holiday in Costa Rica!

I’m getting everything back on track now and ironically feeling stronger as result of handling the crisis with a fair degree of equanimity and calm (most of the time!)

Spring is such a delightful season as nature wakes up from the long winter sleep and new life emerges everywhere. I can’t help but feel inspired by that so there are quite a few new creative projects on the horizon to share with you.

Individual Mentoring: Last Call, Last Place!

I’m delighted by the response to the new series of Individual Mentoring that’s starting this month and all the places have been booked up… apart from one! Read all about it here.

If you think you might benefit from working with me individually to start, develop or complete one of your creative, writing or business projects, dive right in to book a FREE 20 minute Discovery Session so we can discuss it. Just email Julia@JuliaMcCutchen.com to schedule a date and time.

Conscious Writing Retreat… For Women

Most of the people I work with individually are women and last year (without any planning) all of the participants were women.

It was an amazing experience for us all and I’ve been reflecting on the possibility of making this year’s retreat for women only. Now the decision has been made and it’s become the Conscious Writing Retreat for Women!

We still have a few Early Bird tickets left so if this shift appeals to you as a conscious and creative woman, read more and book your ticket here.

Highlights

The first highlight this month is a FREE Video Chat with my good friend and bestselling author Nick Williams on a new topic that I hope you’ll enjoy, Cultivating Creative Self-Leadership. Read more and register here.

Plus, I’m really looking forward to teaching a brand new four week online course taught LIVE by Video called Unlocking Your Creativity with Conscious Writing. Read more and register for advance information here.

Finally

After seven years of monthly IACCW interviews without missing a single one (!), I’ve decided it’s time to take a pause on booking new speakers and reflect on new possibilities for the future.

So you’re going to have to chance to listen to some of the highlights from our magnificent library starting with a topic that so many people are interested in these days – memoir writing.

Enjoy listening to it and have a wonderfully conscious & creative month!

Hi Conscious Writers!

What a delightful time we all had in the New Year: New Creative You! FREE live video class recently which one participant described as ‘yoga for the creative soul’ – lovely!

If you missed it and would like to experience this powerful new teaching medium, the next one will be at the end of March.

I’m also planning a brand new 4 week online course starting in April; all dates and details will be released early next month.

In the meantime, here’s the heads up on two consciously created Highlight offerings for you to review right now:

1. Early Bird tickets for the CONSCIOUS WRITING RETREAT(23-26 June) are now available!

This retreat truly is a highlight of the year for me, and from the feedback I receive, for those who attend as well.

I’ve honestly not come across anything quite like this transformative creative experience anywhere else so do please check it out to see if it resonates with you – read more here.

2. New Six Month MENTORING Series starts in March.

This is your invitation to explore the possibility of working with me individually.

Mentoring seems to be in my DNA! Looking back it’s clear that I’ve been a natural mentor almost all my adult life.

So if you feel like you might benefit from my intuitive insight and the clarity that seems to pour through me, read more here.

Loving the Blog!

I’m also inspired to share with you just how much I’m loving writing the Conscious Writing for Creative Living blog!

I’ve chosen one of the posts to include as this month’s feature article.

It tells the story of one of the key questions that came to me for all Conscious Writers to reflect on as it’s like a Zen Koan for the creative soul!

Comments Request

I hope you enjoy reading it and the other posts I’ve done recently. If so, I’d really appreciate it if you’d take just a few moments to leave a comment on the blog itself.

It’s wonderful to receive positive feedback from people by email but comments at the end of each post remain available for others to benefit from so are much better over the long term.

Signing Off till March

With that said, I’m signing off now for a major creative business review followed by some sunny time out in Costa Rica so I’ll look forward to catching up with you when I surface in early March.

Just so you know, while I’m away my PA is booking FREE Discovery Sessions to discuss the new Mentoring series so simply email Julia@JuliaMcCutchen.com and she’ll take care of you.

Have a wonderfully conscious & creative month!

JM_headshot(1)_Nov2016_500Hi Conscious Writers, Happy New Year!

I know that January is not considered to be the start of the New Year for everyone.

However, as I wrote in this month’s feature article, I love the energy of new beginnings and consciously choose to take every opportunity to immerse myself in the inspiring energy of the alpha source out of which everything arises.

So it becomes my reality; and I ride the wave of new possibilities and fresh perspectives.

New Year: New Creative You! FREE Live Video Class

With the launch of my new blog and website last month, there’s a lot of new energy around at the moment and I’ve harnessed some of it to create the first in a series of bi-monthly FREE Live Video Classes.

I’ve only recently started using this format of live teaching by video for the Conscious Writing Live Online Course which took place a few months ago (and will be repeated this September).

And I was delightfully surprised by just how much I loved teaching this way and how well it worked for all the participants!

The forthcoming New Year: New Creative You! class will call forth the real creative you and guide you to craft an achievable vision and set clear intentions for authentic creative expression in all areas of your life. Read more here.

Looking Ahead

However brilliantly the online format works, especially as a way to dissolve geographical boundaries and open up the teaching for wherever you are in the world, there’s nothing quite like a live, in-person experience.

One of the year’s highlights is the four day Conscious Writing Retreat which is taking place in the sacred landscape of Glastonbury from FRIDAY 23 – MONDAY 26 JUNE 2017.

The Early Bird booking will be opening soon and as places are limited you can register for advance notification by clicking here.

Finally, whatever feelings you have about this particular New Year, my wish for you is that 2017 becomes your most conscious, joyful and abundantly creative year yet!

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious Writers!

Endings and beginnings; my life is full of them! As one process, phase or project draws to a close, the next one opens and new life is breathed into different forms.

Often these overlap in a multi-layered spiral of conscious in-breaths and creative out-breaths that give shape to the essence I devote my life to.

With the first Conscious Writing LIVE Online Course successfully completed 10 days ago as ‘mission accomplished’ for us all, the first Conscious Writing Coaching Group is already formed and ready to begin next week.

Alpha and Omega Transitions

Many of these alpha and omega transitions are hugely significant and early next month I’m looking forward to sharing the details of one of the most momentous shifts in a very long time.

Naturally it includes exciting new developments and offerings that will be directly relevant to you as a conscious and creative writer, so watch this space and all will soon be revealed!

Conscious Writing in French

In the meantime, the fruits of existing projects continue to flourish and I’m delighted to say that I’ve recently received copies of the French edition of my book Conscious Writing.

It is thoroughly delightful to witness this body of work rippling out to the world and seeing my words in another language is amazing!

I’ve posted a few photos to my Facebook page if you’d like to see it and I can’t wait for the Chinese edition to arrive; yes, the rights have been sold to other languages too including Chinese!

Conscious Journaling

One of the core practices I use to remain present, aligned and crystal clear about what’s truly important in the midst of all the change and transformation is journal writing.

It has served me so well over the years, including the last few months, that I’ve been inspired to remind you of the immense value that Conscious Journaling has for your writing and your life. Read the article here.

Finally, we have an inspiring event coming up this Thursday 10 November when I’ll be interviewing internationally renowned transformative coach and best-selling author Michael Neill.

We’re honoured to have him speak for the IACCW audience so if you’ve been wondering whether to become a FREE or FULL Member, now is the perfect moment to so so and receive access to the live call and audio recording.

Wherever you are in the world, I wish you a wonderfully conscious & creative month!

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious Writers!

Earlier in the year I spent the day with a stylist in preparation for a photo shoot (more on that to come soon!) and discovered that I’m ‘autumn’ when it comes to colours.

I’ve always loved the rich hues of red and gold displayed so majestically in nature during autumn and at the moment we’re gathering baskets full of blackberries and apples from the garden which are truly delicious.

Autumn Fruits

The autumn fruits of my creative flowering this year have taken the form of the first Conscious Writing LIVE Online Course which is now in full flow with participants from six different countries.

I’m absolutely loving the process of creating and teaching it live by video, and the feedback so far is really positive so I anticipate I’ll be offering more of these online courses in the future.

In the meantime, our exploration of Diving In to Your Creative Flow in Week 2 included me sharing the story of my own creative recovery which I wrote about in my book (see p 200).

This has inspired me to share the piece with you too in the hope that it inspires you to reflect on how much time and space you devote to honouring your creative impulse. Read more here.

From Virtual to ‘Real’

However wonderful it is to connect with people from all around the world in virtual space, there’s still nothing quite like the profound impact of meeting in person.

This month, I’m doing two events where I’ll be teaching Conscious Writing live and in person:

  • SAT 15 OCT – an introductory talk and book signing at the Tree of Life Festival. Read more here.
  • SAT 29 OCT – a one day workshop organized by Tree of Life Inspiring Events. Read more here.

I don’t do many live events like this so do come along if you can. It’s always a massive highlight for me to meet people who read my newsletters so it would be wonderful if you’d also come up and say ‘hi’!

Whatever your current priorities this month, I heartily encourage you to make time and space for your creativity and your writing.

Till next month…
