Details - March 24 – 26, 2017. Fearless Creating Workshop. Rowe Conference Center, Rowe, MA

Painter, poet, dancer, weaver, novelist, sculptor, filmmaker or stand-up comic—whatever your creative identification, the challenges confronting the working artist are many and occur daily. It’s hard to make art, find success in the marketplace, manage your relationships, and keep your spirits up. Beginner or expert, you may begin to doubt there are any real strategies for moving beyond these very real problems.

If you are a working artist or a “civilian” wanting to create more deeply and more regularly, if you find yourself creatively blocked, if you’ve abandoned the arts and long to return, this workshop is for you. It is also for you if you are a coach, therapist, or other artist-supportive professional who wants to learn about the challenges of the creative life. Through lessons, exercises, and discussions you’ll learn how to summon the muse by identifying and managing the major emotional and practical challenges that come with a life in the arts.

Kripalu

Dr. Maisel’s Deep Writing workshops are simple in structure and powerful in effect.

During the workshop you relearn how much writing means to you and you make real progress on your chosen project. A genuinely safe environment is created because participants’ writing is neither shared nor critiqued. Rather, the group receives permission to spend time connecting with and falling back in love with their own writing.

Each writing session begins with an important lesson. You explore the unique challenges that writers face and have the opportunity to resolve longstanding issues around committing, planning and doing, generating mental energy, achieving a centered presence, mastering anxiety, and maintaining a writing life.

The Deep Writing Workshop is ideal for writers of every level of experience, from published authors to writers who have yet to begin writing. It is likewise ideal for writers who want to discover what they want to write, who are hoping to get back to a beloved project, and who are immersed in a current project.

Give yourself the gift of a week in the embrace of your own writing.

“I began my novel in one of Eric’s Deep Writing workshops, finished it in another, quickly sold it for a lovely advance, and am looking forward to it appearing in 2013! Eric and his writing workshops have made all the difference in my writing life.”
Eva Weaver, The Puppet Boy of Warsaw

Deep Writing at Kripalu Endorsements

This was a wonderful week of encouragement and guidance from Eric that helped me get honest about and confront my anxiety about my writing. I am grateful for the opportunity to spend so much time and energy on my writing this week. Not only did this workshop help me develop confidence in my own writing but it opened my eyes to the larger possibilities and whetted my writing appetite.”Sara L.

“Eric provided a safe forum for writers to really find their tribe. He encouraged us, validated us, and inspired us. His advice was instantly credible and powerfully pragmatic. But more importantly, he gave us time to devote to our work. It would be nearly impossible to walk away from this workshop and not feel inspired and incredibly productive. To all working and aspiring writers, this is a must-attend retreat.”
Anita N.

“At some point in the workshop, I regained my drive to write and create meaning in both my inner and outer landscapes. Eric’s leadership made that possible for me and facilitated that shift into my newfound sense of identity as a writer. Thank you, Eric!”— Marian R.

“This is unlike any workshop I have taken at Kripalu, in that the yoga ‘off the mat’ and meditation happen in the process of the writing itself. Eric arms you with so many helpful things to know psychologically that opens up your writing to just flow. He creates an enormously safe space to move with and past your demons, allowing you to see yourself create and not procrastinate. These elements are balanced with clear and doable steps to then market and sell your work. This has been an invaluable experience that truly transforms.”Debra L.

“In the last three years I’ve written, crafted, and stressed about three short stories. In the last three days with Eric, I’ve written, edited, struggled with and enjoyed creating three new short stories. What didn’t seem possible to me previously is now an organized set of tangible techniques, strategies, awareness, and work that I’m producing.” Muireann O.

“Eric Maisel’s landed perfectly for me: safe space, good sound practical advice, and hours and hours for writing. Spending five days with like-minded people, writing, yoga, great food – all invigorating!”— Maureen M.

“Eric knows the writing process from the inside out and that’s how he teaches it. I’ve learned how to quiet my mind, still my body, and focus my intention. The result? 15,000 words written and a strengthened conviction that it matters.”Darlene C.

“I didn’t know what I was looking for when I signed up for Eric Maisel’s Deep Writing workshop. By the end of Day 2, I had found it anyway. He gave me the tools to sustain a writing practice and to honor my desire to write. I can’t think of a better endorsement than to say that I hope that my daughter one day encounters Eric. He shows how to stay sanely, smartly, and creatively committed to your passion.”Lourdes V.

“I learned to write through my anxiety: to label it and acknowledge it and navigate through it. I developed a confidence in myself as a writer and in my ability to ‘stay put’ with my work that I never had before. Thank you!” Annemarie C.

“Eric helped me understand why I procrastinate and avoid my work and gave me the tools to address that. I am leaving here with the sense of how I can be disciplined and persistent when I return home. That’s exactly what I was hoping to achieve here, so this was time and money well-spent.” – Jane H.

“Until this week, I had convinced myself that my ability to sit down and let the words flow was gone. I was mistaken. Under Eric’s guidance, I have re-discovered my ability to sit down and simply write. I was able to open my laptop, begin typing, and not have to wait for words or ideas to occur to me. The idea of identifying anxiety and learning how to manage it in order to push through to the work has been liberating.”Faith K.

“Such a delightful Deep Writing workshop! This is a wonderful, important experience for anyone wanting to move forward in their writing.”Mary B.

“I came to the workshop with the desire to resume a writing practice. Never in my wildest imagination did I have the intention of starting a book. Guess what? I have started to write a book! Eric’s lessons have broken down barriers—even my imaginary ones—that have prevented me from writing.”Carol K.

“Eric’s presentation style is casual yet precise and is rich with wisdom as well as practical tools that can be used immediately to produce real writing. I recommend his workshop for all writers and for anyone who wants to find the courage to call themselves a writer.”Toni M.

“Fascinating, funny, and unbelievably useful. Finally, an approach to writing that actually works!”Susan B.

“Informative, motivating and honest. I highly recommend Eric’s teaching for those sincerely interested in writing.”Jack F.

“It’s hard to get going on a writing project. This workshop provides everything that you need: helpful and inspiring lessons, plenty of time to write, and no sharing or critiques. You will be amazed by how much you will accomplish and you will go home with the tools and motivation to keep at it.”Amy M.

“It is rare in our busy, technologically driven culture to be granted the space and freedom to show up in our own writing, to show up and see what is ready to present itself. What a gift!”Kelly A.

“The Deep Writing workshop helped me reframe the process and experience of writing and of being a writer. The things we learned had broad application to other areas of my life as well. Eric’s authentic ‘firm but gentle’ style made for a relaxed but focused atmosphere and a space held expertly for our growth and learning. Thank you!”Susan N.
