IACCW Member Event: How to Craft Compelling Online Courses from Your Creative Content

May 1, 2018

Julia McCutchen interviews Mark Matousek

Most of us who write understand that earning an abundant living exclusively from writing books is the exception rather than the rule. The reality is that the bulk of our income as authors is likely to come from the related activities we create to share our ideas, insights and stories.

One of the most popular options today, particularly for appealing to an international audience, is to develop online courses – taught live and through audio or video – to share the material from any body of work we’ve created, including books. In this session, you’ll learn how to:

  • See your content with fresh eyes and understand what participants will need
  • Extract material from what you already have and add practical details to craft your course
  • Turn one book or body of work into several different online courses
  • Identify the best way to teach your course – live and/or through video and audio
  • Decide whether to offer your course exclusively to your own audience or partner with others for a broader reach

Mark Matousek is the award-winning author of five books, a featured blogger and contributor to numerous anthologies and publications. A popular lecturer and writing teacher, he is on the faculty of the New York Open Center, The Omega Institute and Esalen, amongst others. His latest book is Writing to Awaken.

What’s new this month?

April 9, 2018

Hi Conscious Writers!

Spring seems to have arrived at last here in the UK!

What a relief it is to see blue skies and bright sunshine after the overcast skies and seemingly endless snow and rain of recent weeks.

I’ve no doubt nature will respond immediately to the increased light and warmth.

I’m also feeling an upsurge of inspiration and looking forward to some exciting times over the next few months.

Conscious Writing USA

Firstly, I’m delighted to share that I’ll be leading a Conscious Writing Retreat from Sunday 9 to Friday 14 September at one of the most prestigious holistic learning centres in the world, the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies.

I’m honoured to have been invited to lead a 5 day retreat at their gorgeous Rhinebeck campus, New York and thrilled that my first live teaching in the US will be there.

I know from previous feedback that the original combination of conscious practices and creative exercises along with independent writing and group work is transformative to the point of “life-changing” for retreat participants.

So I hope you’ll be inspired to come and enjoy the retreat AND the beautiful space we’ll all be in! Read more here.

New Project – Phase One

I’ve mentioned a few times recently that I’m in the process of developing what feels like a significant new project which I’m working on it in a slightly different way; it’s being created in phases.

Today, I’m excited to say that I’m almost ready to share the details of phase one with you so keep an eye on your inbox in a couple of weeks time for all to be revealed.

I also encourage you to mark your calendars for Thursday 17 May as I very much hope this will be something you won’t want to miss!

Last Call for Mentoring

Finally, this is the last call for the last place on the new six month mentoring series which is starting this month.

Drop me a line to if you’d like to schedule a Free Discovery Session to discuss your individual situation with me.

In fact, feel free to contact me any time about any of the above; I’m here to guide and support you to turn your Conscious Writing and Creative Living dreams into reality.

Have a wonderfully conscious and creative month!

The Creative Power of Deadlines

April 5, 2018

Love them or hate them, deadlines are an integral part of living a creative life that includes sharing your creations with others.

Some people relish the pressure and feel they come alive and do their best work in the 11th hour.

Others experience such a strong degree of contraction from the stress that their inspiration shuts down and they end up driving themselves forcefully towards completion, often feeling depleted and dissatisfied with the end result.

A High Priority

My relationship with deadlines is somewhere between these two extremes.

During my publishing career, I worked to cut-off dates at every stage of the process from the author delivering the manuscript to the print date when no further changes could be made.

Meeting deadlines was a high priority and carried all the way through to making sure that finished copies were delivered to the right place at the right time when authors were engaged in promotional activities like book signings.

Honour the Commitment

Having crossed the threshold to become an author myself and forged my own path over the last 20 years creating courses, classes, products and retreats, I certainly have more say in the time frames I’m working to now.

However, there’s always a requirement to decide when something is going to happen and then follow through to make that a reality to honour the commitment – to myself and to others.

* Just 2 places remaining! *

My speciality is to bring deep intuitive insight

consciously, creatively, authentically and joyfully.

Mentoring provides a rhythm, structure and positive accountability for you to begin, develop or complete your current project(s) with regular guidance and feedback to ensure you’re always on track with your core purpose (including help to find what that is if you’re not sure!)

It doesn’t matter if you’re…

  • just starting out and looking to explore your ideas
  • need help to re-ignite your creativity and  access a deep, conscious flow
  • drawn to discover your true voice and take your writing to a whole new level and/or
  • reconnect with your sense of meaning and purpose if you’re feeling stuck in a groove.

Wherever you currently are, one of the three packages I’ve created to suit your individual requirements will provide you with the transformative and practical support you need.

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.

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