Your personal writings are far more than just a journal — they can be a powerful spiritual practice that frees you from stuck energies, old ideas, and stagnant visions.
They can be a gateway to your soul’s liberation.
It’s time for writing to take a respected place of honor among more venerated spiritual practices like meditation and prayer. Indeed, there’s perhaps no more powerful tool for processing your stories and emotions, opening to your higher truth, and realizing your hopes and dreams.
By focusing your mind on crystallizing the essence of your feelings, peeling back the layers of truth, and seeking a higher vision, you can create an open channel for your deepest intuition and spiritual wisdom to manifest.
Of course, not all writing is transformative. If you aren’t careful, you can end up rehashing your grudges, reinforcing false beliefs, and keeping yourself stuck.
Like any spiritual practice, you can discover the secrets to writing in a way that unlocks profound, liberating gifts.
In this free teleseminar event, Mark Matousek, one of the world’s most respected spiritual authors, journalists and memoir teachers, shares three decades’ worth of insights about how to engage your writing — from memoir to private journals — as a potent DAILY spiritual practice.

How do you ask the questions, and do the exercises, that go beyond surface truth — and touch the divinity within?

The writing course I took with Mark Matousek was an amazing journey into the soul of each who took it. We found we were able to trust each other, thanks in large part to Mark starting our first class with the words; "You’re all here for a reason, even though you may not know what that reason is." Over the course of just a handful of short sessions, I’ve come to realize that not only was I there for a reason, but that this reason was more important to my wellbeing and self-understanding than I could have possibly fathomed when I first signed on for this class... I am deeply grateful for the experience.

Mark is more of a midwife than a teacher. In addition to his innate grasp of and experience with storytelling, what makes Mark so great to work with is his very present presence — it’s what allows me to access what I’ve got to share. I’ve been meeting regularly with him for the past six months for help on the story I am writing and the process is so enjoyable I’d rather it not end.
