Conscious & Creative Mentoring – last place, last chance

March 23, 2016

On this beautifully sunny spring day, I’m reaching out to you with this quick courtesy reminder that the application deadline for the new Mentoring Series is coming up tomorrow, Thursday 24 March – and there’s just one place remaining!

This year, my new offering for the focus of our work together is creative awakening which uses creativity as the basis of deep self-discovery and healing into wholeness.

This holistic approach opens the way for you to express yourself creatively and authentically through both business and personal projects from the level of your true self, and set yourself free to create what you’re truly here to create.

CW_Mentoring_2016_LORES_150Read more here

If your primary focus is writing (of any kind) and authorship, my on-going commitment to conscious writing as my core teaching for discovering and expressing your true voice will be the best choice for you.

Having said that, there is a natural overlap between conscious writing and creative awakening and they both come into the mentoring process overall in one way or another.

Choosing between them boils down to how much emphasis you want to place on writing and this is something we can discuss together to find the perfect fit for you.

The mentoring work I do is always deep, transformative and often described as ‘life changing’:

JennyEngstromBaron_150I first came to see Julia for a 2-hour Breakthrough Coaching session at a time when I was struggling to transition from academic writing to more creative work, and I’ve continued to work with her ever since.

During that time, Julia has been instrumental in helping me find my writer’s voice and discover what I am truly here to write.

Working with Julia has been transformative, and her unique approach to creativity and writing beats any creative writing course I’ve ever attended.

Not only is Julia a highly skilled mentor with expert knowledge of the world of professional writing and publishing; she’s also amazingly intuitive and has a natural talent for helping people connect with their creativity. 

I can safely say that working with Julia has transformed my writing as well as my life!

Jenny Engström Baron, blogger, writer and activist www.bornwhole.wordpress.com

question-mark-460864_640So ask yourself:
  • Am I as ready as I’ll ever be to create what I’m here to create, write what I’m here to write and live a life that reflects the fullness of my creative soul?
  • If not now, when?

What’s new this month?

November 7, 2015

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

Two months on from the publication of my new book Conscious Writing, I’m surfacing from what has been an extremely intense experience!

So much so, that I’ve been prompted to write an article about it called A Conscious Approach to the Alchemy of Authorship see here.

The reality of what it takes to write and publish a book successfully includes a massive investment of time and energy over a long period of time (about 2 1/2 years for me), not to mention the financial implications.

Following an Inner Impulse

Yet the commitment to follow the inner impulse to write what we’re here to write leads to the creation of a body of work that is in service to the core message and stories we feel called to share.

As a result, my highest priority now is to share this core teaching which has been described as ‘a pioneering movement’ for everyone who wants to make a positive difference in the world through discovering and expressing their true voice.

So, here’s a summary of the ways I’ve created so far to do just that and even more importantly, to support you to follow your inner impulse and create what you’re here to create:

    • FREE Resources: videos, audios, articles and more – click here
    • The Book, Journal and Audio CD: enjoy a 10% discount off the list price of the book and a ‘thank you’ gift when you purchase plus a request to post a review if you like what you read – click here
    • LIVE Events:  your chance to experience the Conscious Writing process with my personal guidance on a one day workshop click here, and on Retreat between 10th and 13th June 2016 click here
    • Social Media: my new author page on Facebook where I’m posting tips, quotes, aspects of my personal journey, videos and more  – click here
    • Individual Mentoring: perhaps one of the most powerful and transformative ways of all to discover your true self and express your true voice, on the page and in the world – click here

On the day the book was published, the overwhelming feeling I had was one of deep gratitude (tinged with relief and a sense of awe!) for everything and everyone who had contributed to me arriving at that point.

Now, the next level of my authorship is unfolding and my commitment to you is to continue sharing all that I learn along the way to enable you to follow your own creative calling. Don’t wait until you feel ready; that moment will never arrive. Simply ask yourself, if not now, when?

To your conscious & creative success!

3 Ways to Plan for Success as a Published Author

April 8, 2015

Female rock climber reaching the summit.Completing the final draft of a manuscript is a major threshold for any writer to cross, and is certainly worth celebrating as a significant achievement in its own right.

Once we have surfaced from whatever degree of conscious and creative recharge we require, a whole new level of our progress towards successful published authorship begins.

Naturally, we need to plan ahead to ensure that we stay on track with our intentions to reach our readers with our message and stories.

Yet as Conscious Writers, we are mindful of remaining present in the moment with all aspects of ourselves in alignment despite the future focus. This is how we retain congruence between our head and our heart to guide us as we make important decisions along the way.

Whether we are working with a traditional publisher or choosing the indie self-publishing route, planning for success as a published author means that in addition to our writing, our attention is required for many other activities.

So what are the main areas we need to focus on to give our book the best possible chance of success in the world?

A Conscious Approach to the 5 Stages of Writing

December 8, 2014

five-elementsOpinions vary regarding the number of stages involved in the process of writing and range from three to a dozen depending on the way the contents of each stage are distributed.

In Conscious Writing we place a great deal of emphasis on the importance of inner preparation before any outer action is taken so it is no surprise to discover that this is the first of five stages we go through as Conscious Writers:

  1. Preparation
  2. Inspiration
  3. First draft
  4. Refine and revise
  5. Edit and complete

These stages do not necessarily follow a neat linear progression. The initial preparation leads to inspiration and first draft writing although during the early phases of inspiration we may dip regularly back into preparation before a single word meets the page.

The first draft will always require refinement and revision yet this may end up being more of a dance to and fro than a clear cut boundary between one and the other. A great deal depends on the nature of the content, the relationship we have with it, and discovering our optimum way of working.

For our purposes here, exploring each stage in the typical order enables us to appreciate the subtlety and detail of the creative framework as well as the potential contribution a conscious approach can make.
