What is Radical Writing and How Does It Work?
Something potent happens when you allow your fingers — rather than your mind — to express your ideas and emotions. You gain detachment and power. You learn to create new worlds out of your imagination and to uninhibitedly shape visions from your thoughts and feelings. Writing in the free and exaggerated way this process teaches will liberate your creativity, propel your determination, and perpetuate physical and emotional healing.
Radical Writing is a three-part online course, each part four weeks long and requiring only 15 minutes a day.
You need have NO writing experience or expertise. The work simply involves a willingness to hear your inner voices without censorship or judgment and to allow yourpassions to safely direct you toward a new way of experiencing your life.
You can apply Radical Writing as a creative tool and/or as a diagnostic and healing technique. The process opens the door to the imagination by working with the nonliteral, nonlogical right brain. Writing exploratively, in the way the course teaches, compels us to indulge the fictions, rather than the facts, that lead us to our inner truths and their effortless telling. Radical Writing provides a safe, private process for uninhibited self-exploration and revelation.
The course includes a daily lesson, five days a week, that is both broadcast audially and published on your computer screen. Laura Cerwinske will talk about the purpose of the assignment at hand and then assign an exercise which you will complete using Radical Writing’s simple technique. After completing the exercises, you will post your writing on the website bulletin board under a nom de plume or screen name, thereby guaranteeing your anonymity. The purpose of this is two-fold: to encourage you to feel that you can express yourself freely and safely; and to gain insight into how vast the types of responses to this work can be.
One evening a week, Laura will speak to you directly via a group teleconference call. During these classes, you can ask questions about the process and discuss with others the effects of your writing and your progress.
The THREE PARTS OF THE COURSE are:
PART ONE AWARENESS TRAINING You will learn the Power of Your Story along with the Six Classic Principles of Transformation. You will discover unrealized meaning in your words, deeds, and memories as well as the quantum ability to bring about manifestation through observation.
PART TWO HEALING and SPIRITUALITY You will recognize how your untold stories direct your life and how imagination works as a healing tool. You can explore subconscious causes of chronic problems and learn how to alleviate the effects of patterns of thought and behavior.
PART THREE ART, PASSION, and CREATIVITY You will experience the power of incantation and realize the artist as healer. You will recreate your stories as you might see them in painting, literature, drama, poetry, dance, music, and film.
PART ONE is required in order to take PARTS TWO and THREE.
