Catherine Ann Jones Author- HEAL YOUR SELF WITH WRITING Winner of the Nautical Book Award 2014

HEAL YOUR SELF WITH WRITING

by Catherine Ann Jones

“Heal Your Self with Writing is an elixir for the soul.”
– Psychology Today

Announcing a new book by Catherine Ann Jones:
Heal Your Self with Writing (Divine Arts, August 2013)

Winner of the Nautical Book Award, 2014

Nautilus Book Awards is an annual accolade of books in the genre of social and environmental justice. Established in the U.S. in 1998, it is considered a “major” book award and has been conferred to prominent authors including The Dalai LamaDeepak ChopraBarbara KingsolverThich Nhat HanhAmy GoodmanCharles, Prince of Wales and Desmund Tutu.

Our lives may be determined less by past events than by the way we remember them. Expressing and listening to one’s own life story is an ancient mode of healing. How do we learn to listen more to the stories that heal? How do we put together the pieces of our past? How can we rewrite our life story so that pain becomes meaningful and actually promotes growth and transformation? Heal Your Self with Writing offers a step-by-step journey of discovery and re-visioning through focused journaling, a practice that can enable healing and empowerment. In this way, each reader is able to make meaning out of memory and put the past where it belongs — behind them. Heal the world one individual at a time.

CATHERINE ANN JONES holds a graduate degree in Depth Psychology and Archetypal Mythology from Pacifica Graduate Institute where she has also taught. She is an award-winning playwright, author, & screenwriter whose films include UNLIKELY ANGEL, THE CHRISTMAS WIFE, and the popular series, TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL. Fulbright Research Scholar to India studying shamanism, winner of the National Endowment for the Arts Award, author of The Way of Story: the craft & soul of writing and Heal Your Self with Writing, Catherine works as a writing consultant, keynote speaker, and teaches both here & abroad.

Book launch, a trip to Esalen Institute,
and hitting #1 worldwide at the Daily Om

Just back from teaching at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA – a very special place to heal and expand.

Dolphins, whales, otters, slow flying groups of pelicans who fly pass so close, you can almost reach out your hand and touch them!

Hot Sulfur Spring Hot Tubs where you sit and dream over looking the Pacifica while hummingbirds dart and drink nectar from red and gold flowers. No cell phone coverage nor easy internet connection.

Feel very fortunate to be invited every August to teach there. Yes, Life is good!

Just heard that my online course at http://www.dailyom.com, “Heal Yourself with Writing”, has just reached #1 worldwide. Couldn’t be more grateful! Thank you for the support.

Mike Alvarez Author- MAMAS DON’T LET YOUR BABIES GROW UP TO BE WRITERS & THE HOUSE ON ROSEWOOD DRIVE

MAMAS, DON’T LET YOUR BABIES GROW UP TO BE WRITERS

by Mike Alvarez

Mike Alvarez’s book on writing and writers, MAMAS, DON’T LET YOUR BABIES GROW UP TO BE WRITERS and one of his favorite children’s stories, THE HOUSE ON ROSEWOOD DRIVE have been accepted for publication by Red Willow Digital Press.

From Mike’s book on writing and writers: “I wish I had read a book like this when I started writing. It would’ve saved me a lot of time and grief.” “When I wote THE HOUSE ON ROSEWOOD DRIVE, I fondly recalled the fantasy tales of Ray Bradbury, whose wonderful lyrical style inspired me from an early age. This story is my tribute to him.”
