“One of the most generous-spirited presenters
I have worked with anywhere.”
~Oriane Lee Johnson
We each have our own story, a personal myth constructed from our life experiences. Unfortunately, a majority of us believe that we are our story rather than being the storyteller. We identify so strongly with these narratives that we cling to them for our very existence – even when they no longer fit. Realizing the a gap between your stories and your authentic self is a doorway to personal freedom and insight.
Writing To Awaken guides you through this portal using powerful questions and self-inquiry. When you write about your deepest desires, secret challenges, unrealized gifts, and so-called mistakes, you liberate your latent wisdom and the power of the internal witness. This releases creativity, innovation, and courage. Scientific studies have shown remarkable improvements in physical, mental, and emotional health through expressive writing.

Your Untold Story:
Writing as a Path of Awakening

February 18 – 25, 2023
Blue Spirit Costa Rica

Challenging the story you tell yourself – about who you are, who you’re not, what you want, and what really matters – has the power to radically improve your life.
Each of us has an untold story. Underneath the persona you show the world lies a hidden narrative you may not be aware of, or one that you deny altogether. When you explore this unrevealed story, and reveal the whole truth about your experience, you come to see the mythic dimension of your personal struggles and discover answers to questions that have eluded you. You begin to hear and access the powerful, authentic voice that has always been inside you.
In this transformative workshop, Mark will guide you on a step-by-step journey into your own interior, using his Writing To Awaken method. You will explore profound, targeted questions designed to reveal, engage, and challenge your untold story in a safe, intimate, and supportive setting.
