WRITING—LIFE COACHING

DESIGNED BY ARCHETYPE.

Perhaps you’ve heard of Carl Jung’s twelve archetypes.

In essence, Jung believed that universal, mythic characters—or “archetypes”—reside within the collective unconscious of people the world over. They are symbols designed to represent, at a fundamental level, the “types” of people that are the combined result of life stage, personality, and temperament.

Since archetypes are fundamental to storytelling, we believe they are fundamentally helpful to storytellers.

We use them to represent the different ways we can help you on your writing journey, designed with your writing—life needs in mind.

You want to go deeper. You are a good writer, but you want to be a great writer—a more honest, insightful, and perceptive writer. You understand that to achieve your best writing, you must go within. You simply need the guide who can assist you. Trauma, personal blocks, inherited mythology: the stuff we carry around can prevent us from achieving our dreams, but it can also be the key—we just have to face up to it, and take our story back.

This package includes:

  • Bi-weekly writing—life sessions (twelve total) over six months;

  • Therapeutic sessions for your writing;

  • Writing assignments as therapy;

  • Editors’ critique of up to ten pages per session, to be discussed in session;

  • Reading prescriptions: one book per month, sent to your door*;

  • Monthly resource, exercise, essay, or other freebie tailored to your needs, sent to your inbox.

THE LIFESAVER

Often the critical mass of our lives leaves us feeling stuck, lost—even wondering why we’re writing in the first place.

This session is designed to get you back to centre: we’ll talk through your writing—life challenges (because one does not exist without the other!) and establish a way forward. But this method is not about external solutions; it’s about strengthening your relationship to yourself and returning you to that place within, from which your passion for writing burns most brightly.

WARNING: SESSION MOST OFTEN RESULTS IN UNSTOPPABLE FLOOD OF WRITING. PLAN ACCORDINGLY.
