Write Yourself Whole

The page is our savior.
The page expects nothing from us.
Look at me, the page tells us.  I’m blank.
~ Dani Shapiro

Writing is a powerful way in which the heart is expressed. Having that writing seen, read, and honored – in kind, generous, tender ways – reveals and invites even more of your heart to the page – and to life. It’s sacred, safe, and holy ground.

Write Yourself WholeWrite Yourself Whole: Sacred. Between me and you.

  • meditative, paced, and generous context in which to reflect on your stories; to have me come alongside, find patters, identify themes, and help you see what emerges.
  • My heart-felt response to your story, your struggles, your joys.
  • Open, kind, and honest feedback; my thoughts on your behalf, my heart on your behalf.
  • Ways in which writing can invite new understandings of self and the sacred.

Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life: they feed the soul…We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. It’s like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You can’t stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship.

kandiceWrite Yourself Whole is a unique opportunity that allowed me to voice what is difficult to express in conversation.
Ronna thoughtfully created an experience that gave me permission to be honest, unashamed,
and open about my experiences and thoughts. I felt heard, seen, and witnessed in this deeply moving writing process.

Though face-to-face relationship and conversation can be rich and beyond-transformative, I have found that writing often gets at (and under the surface of) things even more profoundly. Certainly, I have known this to be true for myself – through my own journaling, my own scrawled emotions, my reams of saved .doc files. Writing, for many of us, allows us to express ourselves in ways that talking sometimes restrains. That’s why I’ve created this space for us together.

The Specifics:

  • A couture and uniquely personalized writing process is crafted just for you; a directed, step-by-step series of writing prompts that help you identify and articulate things that matter most. (There’s no possible way to do this incorrectly!)
  • After I receive your writing, I read it – gratefully, humbly, and with the most sacred awareness of your heart. Within one week I will respond. No template. Just my words, insights, “seeings,” wisdom, and hope on your behalf.
  • This personalized response comes back to you in document form with my thoughts embedded and woven within yours. In addition, I provide you the next round of writing prompts to move you to a new and deeper level of understanding. As long as we work together, this process repeats – going deeper, exploring more, inviting hope, change, and desire.
  • And throughout, you have unlimited email access to me – anytime. Just hit “send.” I’m here for you.

Spiritual writing expands the interior conversation of consciousness to include your relationship with the sacred. You are no longer alone on the quest…You are in conversation with Something you perceive as beyond, or deep within, yourself. It is this inclusion of the sacred that spiritualizes the writing. ~ Christina Baldwin, Storycatcher
