Awakening Genius: An Exploration of Desire and the Creative Life
Six Weeks: November 16 – December 31

Each of us is born with a unique gift, an authentic voice waiting to be heard.  In this popular online course, Mark leads you on a step-by-step journey toward discovering, honoring, and actualizing the creative potential lying dormant inside you.  What is that only you have to offer?  What peculiar, inventive, original power is only yours to manifest?  Once you learn to tap into this power, and begin to tell the truth about who you are, your life reveals its hidden meaning(s) and the purpose(s) for which you were born.  This links you to your in-born genius and transforms the quality of your existence.  More Information

How the online classes work

One week prior to the start of the class, you will receive an invitation to join the Google Group for the class where all assignments, individual work and Mark’s weekly comments will be posted.  Using Google Groups allows the class to read, comment and support each other’s work in a positive and nurturing environment.

Each Monday, for the duration of the class, a new lesson will be posted to the Google Group. Students post their work to the Group by the following Saturday evening.  Assignments should be no more than 1,000 words.

On Sunday, Mark responds to each student, commenting and giving notes on their writing and progress.  Students are invited to correspond with Mark privately about their writing process or work they prefer to not to share with the Group.

Group teleconferences (one for six-week classes/ two for nine-week) are held during the session to provide an opportunity for students to ask questions and talk together about their work.  These will be scheduled once the class begins.

“I just completed Mark’s online writing class and I’m feeling a deep sense of gratitude for being able to participate in such an incredible, enlightening, and healing experience. The meaningful assignments led to a wealth of self-discovery! With Mark’s in-depth, heartfelt, and insightful analysis of each student’s writing each week he pointed out exactly what we needed to focus on within ourselves to move forward on our path to awareness and achieving our highest potential. 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!”
