Have you considered including journaling as part of your daily spiritual practice?
Did you know writing can be an effective way to reflect on your life, feelings, relationships, and goals?
The fact is, your personal writings can be far more than “just” a diary; they can be a powerful spiritual practice that frees you from stuck energies and liberates your deepest gifts.
You can learn to write in a way that uncovers unconscious patterns, heals wounds from your past, and reveals and releases limiting ideas about who you are and who you’re meant to be.
Transformational writing gives you the space to explore new possibilities and aspects of yourself, which you might have unwittingly abandoned or forgotten about. It’s a safe place to play and experiment — without prematurely subjecting your ideas to critique, doubt, or dismissal.
Many of our greatest innovators (and today’s cutting-edge leaders) keep journals of their ideas, plans, and visions, where they can be nurtured and incubated until they are ready to hatch.
Writing is actually where you begin to unearth your genius... the unique spirit within you, whose sole purpose is to lead you to your inborn potential.
This genius has nothing to do with I.Q. or external achievement; rather, it points to never-seen-before brilliance. And regardless of the work you do (in a company or corporation, as an artist or stay-at-home mother, or as a coach or entrepreneur), this genius is within you.
Yet, not all writing is transformative. If you aren’t careful, you can end up rehearsing your grudges, reinforcing your false beliefs, and keeping yourself stuck.
In this free online event, a respected spiritual author, journalist, and memoir teacher, will share three decades’ worth of experience and insights to show you how to use writing as a tool for accessing your true gifts.
Register now and discover how to write in a way that opens you to your higher wisdom and true genius.
And you’ll also be among the first to learn about a brand new program in which you can take this practice deeper.

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’m 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.
