THIS WEEK'S EPISODE:

Writing as a Tool for Spiritual Transformation   
Mark Matousek   

Can writing support us in discovering the deep connection to our authentic Self?  Since Self-realization is the revelation of our authentic Self – that which we already are – how can we unburden ourselves of pointless baggage on this journey of spiritual awakening?  Mark Matousek is an award-winning author, teacher, mentor and speaker whose work is devoted to self-inquiry and the transformational power of writing. Join Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian and Mark Matousek as they reflect on the path of transformational writing as a tool for spiritual liberation. Tune in and find out how this powerful tool can work in your life. 

Mark Matousek is a bestselling author, teacher, and speaker whose work focuses on personal awakening and creative excellence through transformational writing and self-inquiry. He brings over three decades of experience as a memoirist, editor, interviewer, survivor, activist, and spiritual seeker to his penetrating and thought provoking work with students. His workshops, classes, and mentoring have inspired thousands of people around the world to reach their artistic and personal goals. 

The essence of Mark’s philosophy is that “When you tell the truth, your story changes. When your story changes, your life is transformed.” Only by dispelling life myths and revealing your authentic truth can transformation begin.
