As a writing guide, I am honored to help women experience the beautiful, powerful and transformative practice of contemplative writing. Our journals can be so much more than a place to vent and record the events of our lives. I have had more epiphanies and ah-ha moments in the pages of my journals than I could ever express, but it was when I began sharing writing with other women that I fully realized its power. These shared writing experiences offered the opportunity to explore an assortment of techniques which has evolved into what I call guided contemplative writing. Currently, I am excited to be putting together a writing program to allow women to be able to experience guided contemplative writing in their own homes.
My experience with anxiety led me down a path where I became very interested in the workings of the mind and how it affects the body and our experience of life. My growing fascination with the healing process led me to contemplative practices and a more intentional way of life. Writing, which had always been an outlet for me, became a revealing practice, a process of unearthing thoughts that were hanging out below the surface without my awareness, and once I experienced contemplative writing with other women by offering writing circles, I was hooked. Art, lettering and stitching reappeared as a way of expressing epiphanies and transformation in order to share and experience them more fully. Watching it all come together continues to be a great adventure.
