Sacred Space

Writing & Songwriting Coaching

 

A mindful, mystical approach to the 

craft of writing & songwriting. 

Creativity is part of your innate nature... but many of us forget that along the way. 

Why Mindfulness?

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.

 

As a meditator of 20 years, I found that meditation supported every stage of the creation process, thus I dedicated my master's thesis to finding out how meditation could support music education.

 

Research shows that meditation practice increases focus, reduces performance anxiety, refines the ability to hear musical notes, and even increases proprioception - essential skills for musicians. Research also suggests that meditation practice supports a state of creative flow.

Why mysticism?

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!

 

Reiki, guided meditations, and working with nature are some of the tools that come up during Sacred Space coaching, to support your unique expression of Divine creativity.

What are craft tools?

Craft tools are the tools unique to each art form that form the skillset through which the artist refines their expression.

 

In writing, voice, dialogue and narration, pacing, rhythm, rhyme, verb tense, alliteration and consonance, imagery and character are all forms of craft tools.

 

In songwriting, song form, melody, harmony, key signature, rhythm and rhyme, melodic meter, imagery, front and back heavy lines are all forms of craft tools.

Studying these aspects in our heroes' writing and songs, as well as in our own, and pinpointing practices to broaden our skillset gives us a much bigger playground to play on, and a much more sophisticated ability to make creative choices.

If you've been longing to return to the joyful, playful Source of your creativity, book a free half hour consultation to see if this approach is right for YOU.

To create from your deepest resonant frequencies is a powerful choice, aligning your being with your expression, and infusing your creations with energies that have never existed on the Earth before- and won’t, unless you write them.

Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden inside you?

Elizabeth Gilbert.
