If you have something to say—truth to speak and words to write—restoring your natural vitality can be your greatest ally. It can empower your spirit, nourish your soul, and replenish your writer-self. It can boost you to be the writer you can and should be.


Being a writer in the modern world can be exhausting. It can take a lot out of us, leaving us depleted of our natural vitality.

In this replenishing online course, you’ll learn to fill your needs so your brightest light can shine. Over the course of five weeks, you’ll (re)gain the strength and energy to write your truth to fully and joyfully express your amazing writer-self.

The demands of the modern world can take their toll. There is only so much that writers can give of themselves before they are left feeling depleted of their natural vitality and unable to fully shine their light.


  • ​If you have been feeling low or depleted...

  • If you have been unable to tap into your creativity...

  • If you have more within you than you have been able to express...


This course is for you! It is a nourishing, safe place to replenish the gift you hold within. Filled with helpful insights, inspiring meditations, creative prompts, and empowering practices, 5-Week Reset for the Writer's Soul helps you revitalize your writer-self. Over the course of five weeks, you'll take a journey of nourishment, self-care, gratitude and appreciation so you can reset and give yourself the boost you need to step forward on your path.

Topics We'll Cover:


Explore the benefits of listening to yourself, giving yourself space and room to breathe, and of letting go of some of the pressures you place on yourself. 


Learn positive ways to give yourself grace, be still... and simply rest. Doing so is necessary for your personal and writing well-being.


Recognize your needs and commit to filling those needs so your writer-self can thrive.


Create and embrace opportunities to enjoy life, to notice the little things, and to remember to smile and laugh. 


Love that is focused and given intentionally can nurture and strengthen your writer-self.

Course Philosophy:

We believe writers are important. They have been essential throughout history, and they are especially important today, in this turbulent world. Writers have the power to make people think, feel, and move. They have the potential to heal, inspire, and lead others through important changes. 


5-Week Reset for the Writer's Soul is designed to help you give back to your writer-self. As a writer, you may be more used to giving of yourself than to yourself. But it's time to replenish, recharge, and revitalize. You're worth it! 

Guiding Principles:

  • We believe in you. You are important, and what you have to say matters.

  • 5-Week Reset for the Writer's Soul is a safe place to recharge.

  • We support you. You are not alone. There are many like-minded people who are on the same journey.

  • You deserve to take care of yourself. This is a place for writers to reset and revitalize so their brightest light can shine.  

How it Works

Every Sunday for five weeks starting August 1st, you will receive access to a new portion of the course, where you'll be introduced to a new topic and listen to a guided mediation that will help you align and connect with the material. You’ll then have a short writing exercise and a task to complete to help you master the week's topic, carry it with you, and integrate it into your life. On Friday of each week, you will be invited to share your thoughts and progress with others who are taking this journey alongside you, so that you may express your insights and learn from one another's experiences.

Each week, you will receive: 

  • A new topic to explore, practice, and discuss.

  • A focused guided meditation to help you connect and align with the topic.

  • A writing excercise to help you gain clarity and insight into the topic.

  • An activity to help you put the topic into action in your life.

  • An opportunity to discuss the course and support like-minded people who are on the same journey.

In just a few minutes per week, you will gain nurturing, empowering skills and learn to incorporate them into your life so you can carry them with you on your writing path. The time commitment for each week is approximately 60-90 minutes, although some participants choose to spend longer.  You can log in at the time that works best for you, although we recommend the following: Sunday-Monday to complete the lesson, Tuesday-Thursday to practice incorporating the lesson into your life, and Friday-Saturday to share your thoughts and progress with other course participants if you choose. 


You will have lifetime access to all the course materials after you have made your way through, including all 5 guided meditations. Whenever you need a refresher or a pick-me-up, stop by. 5-Week Reset for the Writer's Soul is a safe place for you, and you are always welcome.
