Writing Your Truth
writing meditation Practice
Is your essential self ready to write more of your truth?
Wishing a prompt would land in your text messages again?
Finding it hard to maintain a writing meditation practice without the energy of the group?
Join Julie Edge in the new year for Part II of the Writing Your Truth Workshop.
We will continue with prompts to help us leap off the blank page and add small writing groups (4-6 people) that meet to write together, breathe together, read together, and serve as accountability partners for each other (in a confidential online setting).
Part II kicks off with prompts on January 3rd. The writing groups will begin meeting in mid-January and run until the end of March (6 group sessions).

Writing your truth Journal
Based on my experience with writing practice, I designed a tailored journal to capture my daily writing meditation. I hope you enjoy it too.

What is writing meditation practice?
Writing meditation is a daily practice blending the art of writing with spiritual development. Similar to journaling, writing meditation practice provides a safe place for emotional release and "letting go" of thoughts. However, different than journaling, writing meditation is not meant to capture the day’s activities or to solve a specific problem. It’s a free writing method that only requires 10 minutes per day and offers a way to observe thoughts and emotions in a judgment-free zone.
Like other forms of meditation practices (i.e., sitting, walking, working), when writing meditation happens consistently, consciously and with discipline, the mind quiets, focuses, and turns inward. While a side benefit is improved writing skills, it's not the primary aim of the practice, and you don't have to consider yourself a “writer” to benefit from a daily writing meditation practice.
The Writing Your Truth Workshop was influenced by the teachings of Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within, Julia Cameron, author of The Artist’s Way: Creativity as a Spiritual Practice, Anne Lamott, author of Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life, and Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. Reading these books is an ideal way to enhance the workshop experience, but they are not required reading.

Meet your teacher
Julie Edge, Ph.D., is owner and Chief Wayfinder at Inside Edge Coaching. She discovered "writing as a meditation" in 2016, and it helped her heal her mind and body. The first writing meditation workshop came about in the Fall of 2017 when she saw the power of teaching this method of inquiry and discovery to her coaching clients and fellow writers. Julie believes the world would be a better place if everyone gave their inner critic the day off and listened deeply to their essential self.
