IACCW Member Event: Writing to Awaken: Self-Realization for Conscious Writers

January 1, 2015

Julia McCutchen interviews Mark MatousekMarkMatousek150
on Thursday 8 January

In this talk, we’ll investigate the mysterious connection between the person we believe ourselves to be and the internal witness who sees beyond the conscious mind into the secrets of our hearts.

By putting our feelings down on paper, and learning to shape life’s raw materials into art, we discover that our challenges are also our greatest sources of wisdom, and that even our darkest (or most unexpected) interludes carry within them the seeds of redemption.

You will learn how to: 

  • tell “the untold story”, and use beginner’s mind as a point of departure in storytelling
  • recognize the interplay of fear and desire in the writing life
  • use self-inquiry — the question Who Am I? — as a doorway to awareness, creativity, and personal power
  • use epiphany, wonder, and awe as brightening agents in our work
  • use writing as a spiritual practice that awakens us from our life myths

Mark Matousek is the author of two award-winning memoirs and three other successful non-fiction books. He is a featured blogger for Psychology Today, Huffington Post, and has contributed to numerous publications including The New Yorker, O: The Oprah Magazine (contributing editor), The New York Times Magazine, and many others. A popular lecturer and writing teacher, he is on the faculty of the New York Open Center, The Omega Institute, Esalen and more. His latest book is Ethical Wisdom for Friends.
