Writing a letter to some aspect of yourself is a fun but profound exercise that has great value for anyone who wants to reflect on their current situation, as well as set intentions and goals for an ideal future–for yourself or your creative enterprise. In a fascinating Medium post about writing to your future self Riskology.co founder Tyler Tervooren analysed a number of studies of the benefits of writing to self. “If you have important goals, habits, and ideals you want to live by, the science is in,” he says. “You can help yourself stick to them by writing yourself a letter. And, just like the research has shown,…

The Benefits of Creative Flow Practice

If you’d like to enjoy the benefits of creative flow practice, join our closed Facebook group  for two powerful practices: Inspiration Meditation and F-r-e-e-writing.
