Launch Your Writing with Ease, Joy, and Confidence

Many people tell me that they would like to write a book with spiritual themes, but they don’t know where to begin. Or they have started to write and they feel less than satisfied with their work, or stuck. Or they hesitate to put their writing out there for fear of being criticized. Or they have no idea how to get their book published.

I would love to help you start your book, deepen or improve it, finish it, get it published, and find soul reward in the process. Your important writing deserves to come to life, find its way to the perfect audience, bestow you with joy, and help your readers. Or perhaps you have a screenplay, poetry, blog, or other creative project.

If you are ready to get on with birthing and launching your best ideas, this unique program will help you cross the finish line. Our webinars, online lessons, community support forum, and optional personal coaching will give you the information, guidance, and confidence you need. Join the Hawaii retreat, and you will be filled with inspiration and vision to let your illuminated ideas soar to your grateful audience.
