Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Are there live sessions? Do I have to log in at a certain time?
Nope! It’s all in your inbox, so you can work on your own schedule.
Q. Is yoga a requirement?
Not at all. We’ll explore a cornucopia of ways to tune into the energies of the physical/metaphysical body. If you have a physical practice (yoga, reiki, acupuncture, walking the dog), you’ll be able to draw connections, but there is no requirement of physical ability or activity.
Q. What technology do I need?
An email address — that’s all.
If you have audio capacity, you may enjoy to the audio meditations, too. But everything will be provided as text, so you’re never required to listen.
Q. What if I don’t know what to write? What if I’m working in a specific genre?
Writing from the Chakras is a method, not a genre. You may apply it to ongoing projects, or use it to generate new ones. Whether you want to write ancestral memory or science fiction … a high-impact fight scene for your action movie screenplay (root chakra! survival!) or a moment of epiphany in your elegant short story (crown chakra all the way!) … Writing from the Chakras gives you a plethora of tools and play to make your writing come alive.
Q. Do I have to read other people’s work?
Nope! No workshopping, no critique — just focus on generating new work and developing robust creative skills in order to free your writing.
Q. Are you accepting international students?
With pleasure! Please email me for payment options if you cannot access PayPal or if you have a question about currency conversion. The rate is US$129, payable in whatever currency you prefer.
Q. What is Writing from the Chakras, actually?
We tap into the seven levels of human experience to generate rich, versatile writing. Whatever we want to write, it all comes from the energy stored in the body. These fun exercises are tools for engaging mind/body/soul in your writing, working through trauma, and busting through blocks.
The chakras we work with, starting from the bottom, are:
1: The Root Chakra
2: The Sexy Chakra
3: The Power Chakra
4: The Heart Chakra
5: The Throat Chakra
6: The Third Eye
7: The Crown
If you’re curious about how I developed this approach, or would like to see a sample exercise, check out my interview about Writing from the Chakras in the Delphi Quarterly.
Q. How will we cover all of that in just 31 days?
Powerfully! If you join us, here’s how your month of chakras will look:
Week 1: Building a Strong Foundation (Root and Sexy chakras): Memory, survival, monsters, sex, creativity, our deepest dramas.
Week 2: Manifesting in the World (Power and Heart): Dive into the core of your being to access virile, emotional writing.
Week 3: Getting to Truth (Throat and Floating Chakra): Are you saying what you really want to say? Can you hear which part of you most needs to speak? Learn how to integrate the energy spine, unblock, and open up to tell your truest story.
Week 4: Connecting to Source (Third Eye and Crown): Vision and transcendence, writing that flies off the page and into the ether, the future, alternate universes, divinity, and beyond.

Your writer will receive a special e-card letting her or him know that you’ve given this beautiful gift. You may choose the day of delivery for the e-card and the specific language, if you like.
