Self-Care

Do you “self-care”? Most of us don’t. We take care of everyone around us, but forget the most important person to take care of is ourselves, especially when we’re stressed or filled with anxiety or filled with fear of what will happen next. Unfortunately, this crazy world we live in promotes feelings of inadequacy and not being “good enough.” But, remember:

We have choices!

We can wallow in the negative or we can find solutions.

Much of the self-care advice available is based on a “one size fits all” template. Do this, don’t do that. And some of it is very good. But, instead, what if you can tailor your own self-care of body, mind, and soul to your own personal needs? To find something that fits you perfectly? Self-care is about creating and following specific “rules” that apply to YOU.

We’ll help you to find your own path and encourage behaviors to create physical, mental, and spiritual health and happiness.

Many of our symposiums, blogs, and videos are directed toward specific aspects of self-care: writers, healers, seekers; but any of them can be useful to anyone. Our experts are all accomplished and successful in their own fields. They also are skilled in assisting people to find joy and achievement in self-care.  

For Writers

Writing can feel like opening a vein and letting the blood flow, which is often frustrating and lonely. This symposium will be overflowing with ideas for self-care, specifically directed toward helping writers to find workable solutions on three levels, body, mind, and soul.

    The Writer’s Journey

    The Writer’s Journey As writers, we often utilize the Hero’s Journey to set up our stories, a technique that allows a reader to follow protagonists through their character arcs. But most people don’t realize it’s really a template for how we live our lives too. When we work on a writing project, no matter what…

    Take a Breath

    Take a breath. One thing I hear most from my students and clients is that they don’t have time to write. Or that they don’t have anything to say. Or that they stare at a blank page until, finally, they force words onto it. But is that really the prose we want to share with…

    Legacy Letters

    Families are funny things. Sometimes, a family member can also be a best friend. But all too often, childhood competition and conflict break families apart. Even as adults, the ties of family – which we’re told should be the strongest – don’t survive. I’m one of five siblings. We weren’t close growing up but, over…

  • The Art of Action

    The Art of Action

    Characters do more than just talk at each other. They move – with grace, in anger, to disguise emotion – and movement tells even more about them than their words. Understanding and using action to tell a story is both powerful and organic – a naturally evolving way to strong characterization. What is body language?…

    The Business of Writing

    Lots of writers just write. The joy of creating a story, of dealing with those voices in your head, is amazing. And, if that’s all the farther it goes for a writer, there’s nothing wrong with that. But many writers take it to the next step and attempt to make a career of it. And,…

For Healers

All types of healers need self-care. And so many of them don’t honor their own needs. The ones who give so much, need to receive much also. How are you receiving? What self-care do you practice?

    The Impact of a Story

    Do our stories have impact on our readers? Can we change a life? How do we change a life? All of those questions are hard ones to answer. As an avid reader for my entire life, I have been impacted by more stories than I can describe. In fact, sometimes I learned a lot of…

For Seekers

Anyone can be a seeker. All you need is a healthy curiosity and an open mind! But we also need a good, solid base of knowledge about ourselves and our needs.
