Details - Life Purpose Boot Camp Instructor Training
Many people—life coaches, therapists, yoga teachers, academics, artists, and folks from all walks of life—are looking for a way to help others and teach something really valuable. Running a Life Purpose Boot Camp Class can be that for you! Learn more about becoming a life purpose boot camp instructor and see if it’s right for you.

Details - Make It Your Own Class
Many of you have a truly abundant background, with lots of trainings, classes, workshops, degrees, certificates, licenses, jobs, and life experiences behind you. Now you hunger to integrate all of that into “one thing that is really your own” and have that “one thing” be the main thing you do or one of the most important things that you do.

You have that hunger but haven’t quite pulled that disparate abundance into a clearly conceived, powerfully branded service or product. I want to help you with that. I’m offering an 8-week online “Make It Your Own” class whose central idea is to help you pull together the trainings you’ve taken, the ideas you’ve pondered, your life experiences, and everything else that may be relevant into a product or service that is uniquely your own.

Details - Memoir Breakthrough online weekend workshop
Working on a memoir? Contemplating a memoir? This weekend (in the comfort of your own home) is for you!

Memoir writers face the problems that all writers face. They face certain special problems as well. These special problems make beginning, working on, and completing a memoir unusually challenging. This weekend will help!

If you aren’t aware of these special problems, there’s a good chance that you won’t get your memoir written. I’ve worked with countless clients who’ve come to me unhappy with their progress on their memoir who then make excellent progress once they understand—and address—these special problems.

Details - Kripalu Deep Writing Workshop
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 WeaverThe Puppet Boy of Warsaw
