Who You Become

December 7, 2017

In a recent mentoring session with a new client I’ll call Sarah, I found myself explaining a perspective that’s a core principle 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.

In fact it’s essential because who you are and the state of consciousness you’re in doesn’t just determine the quality of your self-expression, it directly impacts your whole experience of life.


Sarah understood this principle intellectually but was struggling to apply it.

She was so focused on being of service to the people she felt inspired to help that she was driving herself hard to make it all happen “yesterday” and causing herself a great deal of stress in the process.

The irony was that the more she pushed to achieve the results she was striving for, the slower her progress and the more frustration she felt.

Who she was becoming as a result of her approach was not only detrimental to her health but also sabotaging the whole project!

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

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?
How to Apply

Send an email to with Mentoring Series in the subject line, and include a one or two sentence summary of what…

  • Support and guidance you are looking for;
  • You would like to achieve by the end of the Mentoring Series.

We’ll then arrange a time for a quick chat to discuss the detail and decide whether this is the right form of guidance and support for you at this time. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

What’s new this month?

March 9, 2016

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

Well, I’m back at my desk after a wonderful break that was a mix of recharging, clearing space and creative visioning – just what I needed, and ideal inspiration for this month’s article.

Over the last few months I’ve had a strong feeling that I’m at the end of an era and the start of a whole new one. This is a fairly regular occurrence for me as my journey of creative awakening includes on-going transformation at ever deeper levels.

Endings and Beginnings

However, some of these endings and new beginnings are more significant than others. This one has been massive in relation to my work; I found myself shredding and burning papers going back 10 years to when I first started online!

It’s felt hugely cleansing and I’m filled with gratitude for the sense of completion it included. I’ve remained fully respectful of all that has been which brought me to my current space of being yet simultaneously totally ready to let it all go and relish the space it’s created for whatever lies ahead.

I’m inspired to write more about this in the coming months. In the meantime, I smiled when I read recently that today is a solar eclipse and tomorrow is a new moon – both of which relate to endings and beginnings! Perhaps you’re feeling it too?

Welcoming the ‘New’

Of course the new energy is already arriving, and last month I explained how ‘creative awakening’ is arising to take its rightful place alongside conscious writing as my core teaching.

In fact, the very first Creative Awakening one day workshop is taking place in just 10 days time on Saturday 19 March. I’ve loved preparing this new content and am so looking forward to guiding people through the process. Read more here.


I’m also delighted to be offering creative awakening as well as conscious writing as options for the new six month mentoring series starting in April.

There’s been a great response so far and we have just two places remaining. The application deadline is 24 March. Read more here.


Naturally I’m still passionate about conscious writing too and it’s the primary focus of our retreat which is taking place from 10th to 13th June. The Early Bird tickets have sold out which means that the Tier One tickets are now on sale! Read more here.

If you’ve yet to have a live experience of conscious writing, I’m also leading a one day workshop that will give you a real taste of its potential next month. More details here.

Wherever you are in your current cycle of conscious and creative living, I wish you deep joy and abundant success, whatever that means for you.

Till next month…

Julia McCutchenHi Conscious & Creative Writers!

I love the magic and mystery of the creative process; how the invisible realms give rise to a multitude of visible forms – words, pictures, sounds and more.’

These are the first words of my latest article which tells the story of the way in which creative awakening has become my latest creative offering as an example of how you can follow the lead of your creative unfolding.

In a few short months creative awakening – where the journey of self-discovery meets authentic self-expression in all areas of life – has turned into:

  • several articles
  • a one day workshop in March
  • an option for the six month Mentoring Series starting in April
  • and a major interview to be broadcast in May!

I’m especially delighted to be offering creative awakening as an option for the Mentoring Series alongside my on-going commitment to conscious writing as my core teaching. Read more here.

I hope you’ll consider this broader focus as an opportunity for guidance on your journey of self-discovery and authentic self-expression, and I’d love to know your reaction to the idea generally (send me an email here).

In the meantime…

… the Conscious Writing Scholarship will be offered later in the year (July application: September start) which of course comes after our annual Retreat (10-13 June) which is almost sold out at the Early Bird price!

I’m also delighted to share that my good friend Publisher Linda Joy just released the 10th Anniversary Issue of Aspire Magazine and my article on Creativity: A Path to Freedom and Fulfilment in Your Business and Your Life is included! See here.

You might also like to check out my latest radio interview for the delightful Marianne Pestana and a couple of one day workshops in the Dates for Your Diary section, so there’s plenty on offer to support you with your creative unfolding during 2016.

Personal Visioning + Creative Retreat

Next week I’m off for some mid-winter recharging and after that I’m taking some additional time out for a personal visioning and creative retreat to develop my new ideas in more detail!

So I’ll look forward to catching up with you again early March, and while I’m away from my desk, my wonderful assistant Justine will be on hand to schedule time for us to have a quick chat about the mentoring options if that offering appeals to you at this time.

To your conscious & creative success!

JuliaMcCutchen_darkpurple150Hi Conscious & Creative Writers!

As the days lengthen and the light increases with the onset of spring here in the northern hemisphere, I’m delighted to share that my new book is now finished!

I am somewhat in awe of the of the intensely challenging and richly rewarding process of having written this book from the deepest inside out space it has been possible for me to inhabit at this time.

Yet, stepping back and reviewing the manuscript with a fresh eye after a short break, it feels very much like ‘mission accomplished’!

I’ll look forward to hearing your reaction when it is published in September. In the meantime, there are two opportunities for you to experience the contents directly to guide and support your conscious and creative projects this year.

Scholarship 2015 – Applications Invited

Applications for our 3rd annual scholarship which offers FREE and discounted places for the six month Mentoring Series are now invited.

This opportunity to receive intuitive professional guidance to make tangible progress with your writing ideas has been described as a deep and transformative experience… by the end of the Scholarship, I had completed the first draft of my book.”

The application deadline is the Spring Equinox, Saturday 21 March. To read more, click here.

Conscious Writing Retreat – Two Pay Option

The Early Bird tickets for our retreat which is taking place from Friday 22 to Monday 25 May are now sold out but we have introduced a two pay option so that you can spread the investment over two months.

Why not join us and give yourself the gift of time and space away from the regular routines of everyday life to focus on moving your writing ideas and project(s) forwards this year?

The immersion in three days of conscious living and deep creative exploration will be a memorable and rewarding experience. But don’t just take my word for it – watch some video testimonials and read the words of previous participants by clicking here.

Finally, it seems appropriate to share an edited extract from my book with you this month. It is a reminder of the importance of nurturing your creative soul at every phase of the creative cycle. Read the article by clicking here.

It’s those little bits of good put together
that overwhelm the world.”
Desmond Tutu

Desmond Tutu’s words have become associated with the annual Conscious Writing Scholarship and Mentoring Series, and I am delighted to announce that Applications for 2015 are now open!

They aren’t the exact words I would use to express my passionate belief that as artists of life we are all living a Hero’s Journey. When we do so consciously and creatively, we make the greatest possible contribution and receive the greatest possible reward. Yet the essence of Desmond Tutu’s message is pointing in the same direction.

It is the direction of wholeness and alignment, where head and heart team up with words and actions, and connect with something greater than our individual selves to inspire our ideas, insights and stories.

Doing a little bit of good at the IACCW with our 3rd Conscious Writing Scholarship offering

The resounding success of the experience for all participants of the Scholarship so far has strengthened our commitment to offering it again this year.

“I signed up for one-to-one coaching with Julia’s Conscious Writing Mentoring series at the start of my book writing process. She helped me get clear on who I was as a writer and gave me a wonderful starting point for getting my writing plan together.

In less than a year, I had my book fully completed!

I also used the excellent tools in her Home Study Masterclass on How to Write the Ultimate Book Proposal and found myself a leading literary agent. A worldwide book deal followed within a few short weeks!

I highly recommend Julia as a coach and mentor.  A big thank you to her for the excellent advice, support and guidance along the way.”
