The air is full of ideas. They are knocking you in the head all the time. You only have to know what you want, then forget it and go about your business. Suddenly the idea will come through. It was there all the time. ~Henry Ford
You can’t force creatives into a box. If you try, they’ll no longer be creative. And no one will want your box. ~Ryan Lilly
The Writing Incubator is a “Feminine” Process within a “Masculine” Container. We all have masculine and feminine energy, a balance of Doing and Being. If what you want is to set a task and complete a writing project, you can do that here. (With fourteen books self-published on Amazon in ten years and facilitating or co-facilitating ten projects with groups of women, I know how to get shit done! I also know how to stay in the mystery and let the stories bubble up.)
In the Writing Incubator, there are writing labs, structure and accountability you can access and utilize. And…I am inviting you into the power of staying with the feminine process. Use The Writing Incubator to tune into the feminine process of feelings, intuition, and creativity. Go deeper with your writing. Follow the sensation. Connect with your soul and inner wisdom. Allow room for new ideas and solutions to be birthed. Begin with the desire that is stirring inside of you.
To understand what The Writing Incubator is: Imagine that you are spending 3 1/2 months in an on-line community of creative people. Every day, a writing prompt is offered for breakfast. You read it and let it open your senses, like an appetizer. If you have a writing project, let it stir something about your writing. You decide where to place your attention next. Connect with your desire. Use the resources that are offered. The community calls for connection. The writing labs to process your writing, “workshop” a writing project to the next step, accountability for finishing a project. The monthly open mic night to read 5 minutes of your writing with the community. All of the tools are optional. You choose what you want to use to support your writing projects and life process.
What is your desire?
Do you have a writing project or a creative art project?
Do you want to write a book, start a blog, increase email communication?
If you have a project, where are you in the process? Do you have a deadline for completion or are you organically following the inspiration of a project that is evolving?
Do you want to use writing as a tool to process and explore something in your life?
Whatever the desire, the process is the same. In this 3 1/2 month writing container, you explore your thoughts, feelings, ideas and inspirations. It is a space to write and connect with other people who are writing.
Writing is a powerful tool of exploration and discovery with or without a project. In the writing, we unravel all the ideas to uncover what’s inside. Using inspiration from quotes by spiritual and business leaders and writers such as: Amanda Palmer, Martin Luther King, Jr, SARK, Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Marianne Williamson, Jean Houston, Deepak Chopra, Elizabeth Gilbert, Jack Canfield, Barbara Marx Hubbard and many more, the daily prompt is a reflection of ideas to stir the pot.
A secret Facebook group for connection and witnessing and inspiration from each other. Come in and out, as you please.
Writing Labs: Up to 4/month based on the desire in the group. This is an organic place to talk about a writing project. Read some of your words. Work on structure. Talk about ideas. Coaching support. We may focus on 1-4 people during the 1 hour session and it is open to the group to witness and support each other.
Independent writing and an opportunity to connect in community for sharing and accountability.
Set an intention for this 100 days.
Come to an on-line open mic once a month to read 5 minutes of your writing.
With a focused word for each week’s writing prompts, the intention is to stimulate your senses. To create a space for exploring and expanding. Writing brings up things that are hidden or that have not been spoken before. Embracing the shadow as an ally and teacher who is guiding you to fulfill your desires. Unravel from the old path and see what is true for you now. All of this will support your writing projects.

The Emissary Wheel is an ancient symbol adapted by the Emissaries of Light through their lineage in the Community of the Beloved Disciple. There is no way to know how long the sacred symbol has been used, since is likely predates the Emissaries themselves. The
Wheel represents creation and life, as well as the transformational journey. The spokes which intersect at varied points, are furthest apart at the outer portion of the Wheel, and move closer as they approach the center. This symbolizes the separating system of thought employed by the ego, which falls away as we interact more deeply, moving closer to our own center,
The outer circle of the Emissary Wheel represents creation. Everything inside the circle is a symbol of the created universe, while the vast space outside the Wheel represents the infinite potential of the creative impulse.
The center triangle and circle represent the transformational power of what the Emissaries called the “Ultimate Spiritual Process” of Surrender, trust and Gratitude.
Meditation on the completed Wheel can bring about profound shifts in consciousness.
