Inner Critic Relief
Write your way into healing and thriving for your life and your art. Begins April 10, 2020 at 10am PST.
Jump in for a SIX WEEK DEEP-DIVE that will revolutionize your relationship with the critical voices in your head currently sabotaging your intentions and making you feel like a failure!
The “inner critic” is not just a voice inside your head that tells you your art is crap? It’s also the voice that says such things as:
- The laundry is more important than your creativity
- Your children will feel abandoned if you spend time doing something you love
- You don’t have talent
- You aren’t interesting
- You aren’t kind
- You are damaged
- You’ll never recover from your pain
- You will be poor
- You have to make everyone happy
- You will be abandoned
- Anything that doesn’t make money isn’t worth your time
- Your family hates you (or will hate you if you write your book)
Any thought or emotional energy which creates pain or brokenness is the so-called Inner Critic and these energies significantly decrease our happiness and our creative productivity. But are they telling us the truth? And more importantly, after living with them for decades, can we free ourselves from them?
There IS a way to get out from under a heavy burden of negativity and grief and to activate FREEDOM and FLOW.
Join us for a 6-week deep-dive. Begins April 10, 2020.

Books That Help Others
Starting in February…
There are a lot of good reasons to write a non-fiction book. Here are a few I’ve heard from you:
- You have specialized knowledge of something you’d like to consolidate and get out into the world.
- You know your expertise can make a difference in people’s lives.
- You need a book you can use to create credibility for your coaching or consulting business.
Writing a book based on your knowledge of your field of specialization is a great way to organize the work you’ve done over the years in your field and to offer that work to those who need it in a concise and cogent form. But figuring out how to structure both your material and your writing life can be less than straightforward at first glance.
Join The Narrative Project for an online six-week deep-dive course to give you the tools you need to get started on writing the book you have in your heart to bring to life. This course will take place on six consecutive Fridays at 10am Pacific Time starting February 2020. We’ll use the Zoom platform and will record all classes so you can watch them later should you need to miss the live meetings. Handouts, templates, and class notes will also be provided.
Here’s what we’ll cover:
- The different micro-genres of non-fiction and how to know what KIND of book you want to write.
- How to create a chapter by chapter plan that will serve as the best scaffolding for your particular material and will keep you on track as you write.
- The different possible elements of a chapter and which ones are best for YOUR material.
- How to structure your writing life so that you actually get the book DONE.
- How to handle client stories ethically.
- Pros and cons of different publishing options.
- How to write a book proposal and look for a publisher.
- Overview of what an “author’s platform” is and why you need one even though you are an expert in your field.
If this sounds like just what you need, consider jumping in! Your book deserves to be written and the people you serve deserve to have it in their hands as a resource ASAP.
