The Initiated Writer
A Transformational Writer’s Journey
This free year-long journey of 52 (free) writing prompts and spiritual contemplations will take you through the transformational journey of a writer.
The journey of the Initiated Writer opens you up to your own treasure house. You come as you are, and you will not be expected to embrace any particular spiritual practice or creative dogma.
Daiju visited the master Baso in China. Baso asked: What do you seek?
“Enlightenment,” replied Daiju .
“You have your own treasure house. Why do you search outside?” Baso asked.
Daiju inquired: “Where is my treasure house? ” Baso answered: “What you are asking is your treasure house.”
Daiju was enlightened! Ever after he urged his friends: “Open your own treasure house and use those treasures. ”

As an inner pilgrimage you free yourself from that which ties you to habitual and even harmful ways of being. You come as you are, and you will not be expected to embrace any particular spiritual practice or creative dogma.
Once you sign up, the prompts will arrive each Friday morning in your inbox! We will start by entering the South, and arrive at the place of initiation, in the East. No matter when you sign up, you will start at the beginning of the journey in the South moving through the writer’s journey with your inner teacher as your guide.
Each email will have a poem, quote or story offered as a reference for the writing prompts and contemplations.
Most importantly is to let the prompts and contemplations lead you to where they want you to go. No rules. No expectations of specific experiences or destinations. This is your personal initiation as a writer.
Be curious. Explore with a generous mind. And notice what arrives on and off the page.
Such writing is transformational without any other effort on your part. Contemplate and write on the prompts and you will open to and receive from your Inner Teacher, your Initiated Writer within.
