I'll be honest - I wasn't going to post this publicly. I was going to post it in a private mastermind I am a part of. Because it feels braggy - and it is - because it's a celebration - because it's about me. But yes, I was a rock star and in my zone of genius this past weekend, so I'm sharing here instead of in private:
Here's what happened last weekend...my own intuitive spiritual coachy mentor author publisher strategist totally SHINED. It was so much fun to sit there and hold space as my clients cried and panicked and celebrated and FELT their creations, as we took the big paper and pens and journals and cards and laid it all out, as they sat there and suddenly the entire book was there in front of them confronting all they are, with it's hopes and dreams and expectations, with the nakedness of what creating something worth creating looks like.
There is an organic deep personal way in which I guided them through this process.
And then we wrote.
And more came up.
I pushed them to get out of their heads and into their hearts.
I pushed them to dump their author voice and get real.
And magic is coming out.
This was so much fun for me - and I can't wait to do another in a couple of months.
What I learned was how much I value giving personal attention, and how apparent it was that only 3 authors at a time is right. And that I cannot help someone write the same way without spending those 3 days with them, so no more stand alone 6 month program - just retreat followed up by program. They are one.
And I learned how much fun it was to spoil them. To make their life easy so all they had to do was grow and write.
This was a good experiment - refining it as I go. The site is revised and feels really good.
Oh and my third book was completed this weekend and I'm in the final draft, waiting to go proofreading and design.
I'm aware of my head wanting to go 10 steps down the line. And my heart actively slowing it all down.
