Hi Conscious Writers!

As we head towards 2018, the theme that’s emerging in my working life relates to live events – both online and in person.

I love the fact that the FREE live video classes I’ve been teaching this year has made it possible for you to participate wherever you are in the world and watch the replay if you can’t make the date.

Yet I also know that in-person experience through workshops and retreats is powerful to the point of “life-changing” as previous participants have reported.

So creating both will continue to be an integral part of my portfolio of offerings through next year and beyond.

New Year: New Creative You!

This FREE live video class was so well-received in January that I’ve decided to teach it again with a few updates for 2018.

It was described as “yoga for the creative mind” which is a wonderful way to sum up the process we go through for developing a blueprint to create what you’re here to create in 2018. Read more here.

One Day Workshop

I’m delighted to share that the first one day workshop I’ve led in a long time is coming up on 17 March and it’s called Discover Your True Voice through Conscious Writing.

If you’ve not yet had the chance to experience this powerful teaching in person, do please join us in London to experience the Conscious Writing Process and more!

You’ll emerge positively transformed and in alignment with your authentic purpose – as a writer and in life. Read more here.

Who You Become

Finally, this month’s featured article was inspired by a recent mentoring session.

It’s about one of the core principles of my conscious and creative approach to living and writing – who you become is just as important as what you create, write, say and do in the world.

With the holidays just around the corner, hopefully the message it contains will support you to enjoy each and every moment from an inner space of authenticity and alignment. Read the full article here.

Have a fabulous festive season, and I’ll look forward to catching up with you in 2018!

Hi Conscious Writers!

What a glorious autumn day it is here in the wilds of Wiltshire.

The sunshine is lighting up the rich hues of red and gold in the garden outside my window and inspiring me to share the joy of conscious and creative living and writing with you!

How to Find and Forge Your Authentic Path

I’m delighted to say that the new content on How to Find and Forge Your Authentic Path from the recent FREE Video Class worked really well.

Participants described their experience as “very powerful, enhancing, inspiring, motivating, wonderful and highly valuable; a succinct set of very strong steps.”

So that feels like a positive start and I have no doubt that it will continue to develop from here. If you’d like to watch the replay, you can do so by clicking here.

Individual Retreats

I’m now offering Conscious and Creative Living as a focus alongside Conscious Writing for all of the coaching and mentoring work I do.

This includes the two and three day individually guided retreats that I’m making available over the next few months and there are just 2 places left!

If you’d like to request an Information Pack here.

2018

Looking ahead, I’m in the process of scheduling a one day Conscious Writing workshop next spring here in the UK and a five day retreat next September in the USA which I’m really looking forward to.

If you’ve not yet had the chance to experience this powerful teaching in person, watch this space for further details.

Have a wonderfully conscious & creative 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!

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.

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.

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?

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 🙂

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!
