Writing techniques

I've studied creative writing in a host of forms, from degrees, freelance writing diplomas, and finally a rigorous and expensive creative writing masters degree. As an experienced educator and professional writer, I know that writers need more than the average classroom experience. HeartWriting distills the gems of my learnings into an inspiring, heart-opening format.

heart-brain connection

Meditation and movement helps to open the creative floodgates between the heart and the brain. It’s easy to access our innate creativity as children as our brains operate on low-frequency, creative brainwaves, right up until the age of 12. When high-frequency, logical brainwaves start kicking in, it’s so much harder to step back into an abstract space, where all the magic of the creative process occurs.

spiritual philosophy

Say hello to your inner spirit, your true nature that exists within you — beyond your thoughts and personality. Once you find out who this inner spirit is, your creativity will soar effortlessly, in ways you perhaps dreamed but thought impossible. The only thing stopping you from being a heart-filled, successful writer, is yourself. Release limiting beliefs by adopting meaningful new philosophy.

creative community

I offer people the opportunity to connect deeply with other writers. This helps to quell the fearful voice, ultimately providing you with a core community to fall back on when times get tough. In writer workshops, you’ll get to know likeminded writers in a safe online setting where you can post and share pieces, give and receive feedback, and chat about the writing process.
