Mark Matousek is an award-winning author of five books and a well respected writing teacher.

In the transformative workshop, Mark Matousek guides students on a daylong journey of writing, self-inquiry, and emotional freedom.  By learning to be truthful about deep experience, we step beyond our own limitations, discovering creative and spiritual potential we never knew existed.  

As Matousek teaches, “When you tell the truth, your story changes. When your story changes, your life is transformed.”  Using targeted writing exercises, group sharing, dyadic work, and one-on-one coaching, students learn to transcend their self-imposed myths and cross the threshold to personal freedom in a safe and supportive environment. 

Designed for writers of all levels, this Writing To Awaken has helped students around to world to claim their authentic voice and overcome the fear of the road less travelled.
