About this Course
Oh, the things you would say, if only you could!
It's not easy to witness other people writing speaking making with a sense of boldness and abandon that you think may not be for you. Or maybe you let yourself ache or long for it, maybe even imagine what it would be like to move through the world with a little less caution and carefulness and a lot more freedom.
Things sometimes call to you things that want to be written said made and you think, If only. You might be overflowing with excuses about how busy you are or how you're missing the proper credentials or certifications or how no one cares anyway. You might not even know where those thoughts are coming from or why they are there.
If you could get really down deep and true you might find another layer underneath and it might sound something like this: If only I did not feel so wounded/inadequate/frightened, I could write that poem. I could sing that song.
We've all been injured by criticism, we have consequences we fear and so many thoughts and voices that may not even be our own holding us back. There is a way through a powerful process to dismantle the old scripts you've been following the ones that say your silence or self censorship are worth the price you're paying and gives you the power to write a new story for yourself.
One with a new ending, with you writing speaking making with as much boldness and abandon as those dear souls who inspire you.
It's time to find your voice.
Finding Your Voice is a self-paced workshop that ushers you gently through four key processes:
- Identifying the sources of your self-censorship
- Uncovering and healing injuries to your self-expression and confidence
- Learning how to dance your way through the real life complexities of truth telling
- And discovering creative ways to tell the most difficult or daunting stories.
