“When your story changes, your life is transformed.”

Scientific studies have shown that a consistent writing practice has the ability to improve physical, mental, and emotional health.  Writing to Awaken offers a variety of exceptional opportunities for you to get in touch with your inner voice – your witness.  Writers of all levels can benefit from the lessons and wisdom found in any of Mark’s offerings.

Whether you are writing for publication, personal awakening, or both, these intimate and thought-provoking classes provide a safe environment for growth and exploration. Students are encouraged to share their work with the class and join in the rich online dialogue. Participation in group dialogue is optional and anonymity is guaranteed.

I’ve taken several of a Mark’s online classes and I can’t wait for the next class that I signed up for to start. My life has changed for the better due to the work I’ve done with Mark and his knowledge, integrity, and commitment to his students is beyond compare!”

“I recently finished an online writing course with Mark Matousek. After 30 years of seeking I found Mark to be someone who gently and consciously offers feedback, teaching, and healing that gave me permission to safely peer into my inner world. The way in which Mark responds to each piece of writing is powerful and served as an opportunity for me to awaken to all my stories and conditioning. In 6 weeks the insights and doors to deeper creative potential were wide open. I highly recommend working with Mark!”
