Conscious Writing: Discover Your True Voice Through Mindfulness and More
Conscious Writing is a process of creative awakening that leads you to discover your true self and express your true voice, on the page and in the world.
It's a journey of self-realization (conscious) and authentic self-expression (creativity) which can be applied to any and all types of writing, and fluently blends soul with craft to reveal your richest insights and ideas.
Whether you dream of writing but haven’t started yet or are an experienced author, this book will guide you through a tried and tested step-by-step process for releasing your fears and writing what your heart truly desires.
Learn how to:
- Align all aspects of yourself – body, emotions, mind and soul – to bring your whole self to the creative writing process.
- Open up a deep space of truth within you to access unlimited inspiration and the true source of your authentic voice.
- Write from the level of your true self, the eternal part of you that is entirely free from everyday anxieties and blocks.
