Fear — not lack of knowledge, craft, or talent — is the single most powerful thing that blocks our creative processes and successes. From fear of not being good enough to fear of actually succeeding and not trusting that we deserve it, this phenomenon contributes to every block that keeps us stuck. With every writer Amy works with and every writer’s group she’s a part of, she sees the reality of these fears shared with shame and doubt. “I’m afraid I’ll lose my chance with this agent.” “What if my mother reads what I wrote about her?” “The negative comments about my article are terrorizing me.” To truly unlock our life’s best work and give us the courage to go out into the world and share it, we must move beyond the fear and into our true expression. Amy will help participants explore their own fears by breaking them down into simple, manageable terms. Using a series of several gentle exercises, she will walk attendees through techniques to release fearful energy about being visible, vulnerable and rejected. Participants will leave with the understanding and tools to catapult them forward on their own creative path with more ease and grace than they’ve ever experienced.
