SPEAK YOUR TRUTH

Welcome home

More than likely, you’ve landed here because you feel called to share your life experience in writing. Perhaps you have a dream of publishing a memoir, a wisdom book, essays, or a blog. You know in your heart that we connect through stories, and you know you have a good story to tell, as well as perspective to offer in our troubled times.

But something is holding you back.

Maybe you’ve taken writing workshops to improve your craft or attended retreats to tap into your creative process. But you’re still not feeling the fire or finding the support to write with confidence, depth, and regularity.

Maybe you’re not sure who you’re writing for or who might be waiting, or even needing to read your work.

Perhaps you don’t feel enough at home with yourself to take your calling seriously.

You’re afraid that either you’re wasting your time or that you’ll make a fool of yourself if you speak your truth.

But you won’t know until you begin.

WHAT IF YOUR WRITING PATH STARTS HERE, WITH
BECOMING AT HOME WITH YOUR OWN WISDOM?

In a world of conflicting messages about the “right” way to write, Write the Wise Way Home empowers you to bring your whole self to the page, speak your truth, and claim your place in the lineage of writers.

COME HOME TO YOURSELF

COME HOME TO YOURSELF

Why aren’t you writing from your wisdom now?

Perhaps putting your loved ones before your creative work has become a habit that is hard to break.

Or maybe you feel paralyzed by perfectionism. Or overwhelmed by piles of free writes, but no rewrites.

I’ve also struggled with how to be present with my family and stay on track with writing. I’ve wondered about how to balance the creative process and the well-made product.

After thirty years as a writer and fifteen years as a writing teacher, I’ve discovered that the way to bring the pieces of a full life together is to write your way back to yourself. Write from your inner authority. Write the Wise Way Home.

My writing workshops, retreats, and e-courses guide you and other committed wisdom writers along a middle path, combining mindfulness practices with literary study, commitment to loved ones with commitment to self.

It is an honor to walk this road alongside you.

Why read black authors

Why read memoirs by Black authors?  I received this question from a fellow writer a few days ago. My first reaction was, are you kidding?  Then I remembered the wisdom of a dear writing friend: Check yourself, she said. She may not know.  The question came from a...

Close Reading as Spiritual Practice

You’ve probably seen and/or downloaded some of the anti-racist reading lists circulating on the Internet. White Fragility and How to Be an Anti-Racist are a few books that are on my nightstand now. If for some reason you haven’t laid eyes on any of these lists and...
