Two weeks active with additional grace time to finish in case you had to skip a day, or even two. The program is designed for you to succeed.
The active program runs Friday, November 5 — Thursday, November 18, 2021, with at least 5 additional days to finish up or keep writing.
Flexibility is built into the program, so you can make it work for you. Plan on 20-30 minutes each day for your home heart-write session (spiritual practice and free-writing), and then read Pamela’s Pearls and interact in our private online Writers Haven as suits your schedule. You can come into our Writers Haven as often as you choose.
People enjoy the program and visit our Writers Haven often, but the amount of time you spend is up to you. There is ease in the program for you to continue even if you have to skip a day.
Heart-writing is a combination of your chosen spiritual practice (meditation and/or Reiki) and free-writing from a written prompt, with the support of a written blessing. A guided meditation recording is part of the program for you to use (or not) as you wish.
First, you have a short spiritual practice session of your choice. You can sit comfortably and listen to the guided meditation, meditate on your own, or if you are Reiki-trained, practice hands-on self Reiki. Practice until you feel your state change, until your awareness drops into your heart.
Then free-write from the prompt for 10-15 minutes.
That’s it; that’s your daily practice.
Additionally, as you have time, visit our online Writers Haven to read articles, share your experience (not your heart-write, which is yours alone!), and interact with our supportive international community, and me.
I’ve recorded a guided meditation which you can use in this program, and beyond. In 40 years teaching meditation, often to people who had previously found it impossible, I’ve noticed people who think they cannot meditate usually misunderstand what meditation is. This program makes it easy for you, and I’m here to respond to your questions and offer tweaks as needed.
You don’t need any Reiki training because you can use the recorded meditation as your spiritual practice. If you are trained to practice hands-on self-Reiki, practice as you were taught. If you need a refresher, or weren’t taught self practice, participate in at least one of my free global Reiki self practice sessions, before the program starts, if possible. If you already practice daily self-Reiki, you can heart-write immediately after that. If you prefer to heart-write later, you can do an additional shorter, modified practice to start your heart-write.
No, you won’t share your home free-writing. That’s for you alone. Our online private Writers Haven is where we interact as a community, each of us going through our own transformation. It’s totally your choice how often/how much you want to participate there.
Participants appreciate reading one another’s experience, finding it supportive and inspiring. It’s always a plus to realize you’re not alone in the boundary quagmire, to read your co-writers’ insights and generously share your own, as is comfortable for you.
Not at all. We have only one optional live online meeting as we start the second week of the program. If you are unable to make it live, you can email your question ahead of time and access the recording in our Writers Haven.
No, you don’t have to write in English. Your home practice can be in any language you like, and you can switch around if you want. People who are multilingual often like to see how writing in different languages affects their experience. That’s completely up to you.
However, English is the common language for the program, meaning everything in our Writers Haven — all articles, prompts, blessings and comments — is in English.
This is an online program, so assuming you have internet access through your computer and/or smartphone or tablet, there are no additional costs to participate. The fee stated is all you pay to access the entire program for the two weeks plus grace period that it exists online.
No worries! The program is for you if you want to explore and discover your inner riches, regardless your writing skills. The goal of heart-writing is not to compose an essay, but to express the insight, understanding and vision that flows from your heart. If for any reason you cannot physically write, you can record a voice memo.
