Writing & Songwriting
A mindful, mystical approach to the craft of
writing & songwriting
Practicing mindfulness in writing and songwriting is a way of showing up for yourself and your craft with your whole heart and mind: aware, curious, and receptive.
Mysticism is the study of reality, truth, and the foundational experience of ourselves as Divine Beings. Creativity is our birthright, and working with mystical skills helps to remind that we don't just have an inner well of creativity - we are a well of creativity!
Why craft tools?
Craft tools form the skillset through which the writer or songwriter expresses their unique aesthetic. Studying voicing, dialogue, pacing, verb tense, rhyme, imagery, rhythm, melodic movement and harmony refines the expression of that aesthetic.
