Have you always dreamed of being a writer without knowing how to start?

Do you have so much to say, but the words always feel stuck inside somewhere?

 Do you write in your journal or morning pages and yet never share the wisdom, joy or the healing of your life experiences with others? 


Learn how to liberate your voice and let your creativity flow.


Beyond The Journal was designed to gently guide you in creating a writing practice that feels good, treats your story with respect, and helps you find the most potent version of your writer's voice.

The self-study course allows you to take each lesson at your own pace.  It starts as soon as you purchase and the audio format of the episodes allows you to take the course with you to create your own writing retreat wherever you are.


What is the cost to you, and the world, if your stories are never heard?  


I created this course because I don't want to see that happen.  I'm sharing the experience of leading hundreds of women in writing retreats around the world through this course to help you remember you're living a life worth writing about.  Start Beyond The Journal today for only $249.
