Christa Mackinnon

Access and Develop your Authentic Writing Skills

We all have the ability to write when we access the creative parts of our brain. This very popular workshop provides a safe space in which to experience various ways to activate the creative areas of the brain and create stories, essays and poems, or begin to create a structure and content outline for a non-fiction book.

We will use shamanic journeying, guided visualization, meditation, word prompts, memory activation techniques and movement to assist you to access those creative, deeper layers. We will support and guide you in your writing process and also provide teaching about structure; give you writing and editing tips and show you how you can overcome doubts, procrastination and blockages.
