Take a journey into yourself. No experience necessary but your experience.
Pen + Paper + Time = It is really that simple. My method is an 8 module practice based on the classes I have been teaching here in Los Angeles.
- Define what feelings, events, and memories have you been circling in your mind.
- Fine tuning your Point of View, to get your feelings down on the page.
- Becoming flexible in your approach to your memories and desires.
- Using experiential exercises to align your body and mind in the writing process.
- Moving forward, overcoming blocks and repetition.
- Delving deeper into what you find, creating freedom and space for yourself. (It is about you, not what other people think).
How does my method differ from other teachers?
- I don’t believe you should ever be forced to share your work with anyone.
- I am process focused—I am more interested in how you got to the place of revelation in your work rather than the “style” of the work itself.
- There is no good, or bad.
- My answer to almost any questions that start with “Can I…?” will always be YES.
- I don’t believe in any “Capital T” truth. You have total freedom to lie, stretch, or change about anything you want, as long as you never lie to yourself.
- I am standing on the shoulders of giants. My method is informed by the hundreds of books, lectures, and research that I have read and integrated. The reason I pick a certain book, quote, or reference is because I FELT IT. I was impressed, mind-boggled, thrown off, or mesmerized. That is what I want to share, my knowledge as a framework for your self-discovery.
“Erin recognized my hidden talents and challenged me to write a Blog. She taught me methods and techniques to improve my skills and implement ideas but most importantly, Erin INSPIRED and MOTIVATED me. If you are looking for an honest and intelligent instructor to ignite your inner genius, look no further, because you have found Erin Jourdan.”
-Kristina Diener, clinical psychologist, Los Angeles.
“Thank you! You’ve inspired me today to pick up my writing again in a whole new way, something I’ve had in the back of my mind for a while now.”
-Kris Cahill, Psychic Everyday
We scribble every day in our journals yet nothing seems to change.
Everyday we say 7,000 words.
The average person will spend 25 years of their lives asleep.
We read 100,500 words a day.
We forget 90% of what happens on a daily basis.
How can we break through our patterns and create understanding, and therefore, change?
As Carl Jung presciently said, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
