About the workshop itself

If you've ever found yourself stopped cold by unexpected change, doubt in your own abilities, uncertain outcome, the demands and needs of others or unfamiliar economic, technological, or social conditions... you're not alone. If you're tired of this, Fearless Writing offers a way to stop being stopped.

You don't have to be a writer, or would-be writer, to get a lot out of a Fearless Writing workshop. But if you are, you'll get a double-dip: skills and techniques that will serve you not just in writing but in almost every other life-endeavor.

And at Fearless Writing: the Whole Enchilada, an extended 4-full-day workshop held on Crescent's enchanted Vermont hilltop, elements of the perfect summer camp for adults are incorporated: swimming, hiking, optional sessions of movement and improvisation, and superb food... all built around Fearless's vibrant core.

Creative stability in uncertain times

The workshop uses the anxiety generated by chaotic conditions as a powerful creative force. Fearless is practical, effective, creative, serious and playful. It turns apparent obstacles into the material from which to build a thriving life.

Fearless's writing practices and principles spill over cornucopia-like: from writing, to creativity and problem solving, to business and personal life.

It works for blocked or would-be writers, and for people who don't identify themselves as either. It works whether you perceive the obstacle stopping you as an inner or outer barrier.

It works, period.

In Fearless, you'll discover how to
  •   unwrap the secret gifts of fear, misgivings, and self-doubt
  •   align expenditures of time, energy & money to your life-destination
  •   experience, trust, and use your creative self as a reliable partner
  •   decode procrastination's hidden messages
  •   work harder by working softer
  •   immediately begin writing with more clarity, strength, and ease
  •   use Fearless's template to create a business, personal, & creative life in which you
      thrive & grow
  •   become your own mentor, continuing the Fearless path long after the workshop
  •   find, retain, and keep growing your own authentic, original, unique voice

Plus! You're not just signing up for a weekend; you're getting help which begins the minute you register, is intensified during our time together, and then continues long after. Here's how:

BEFORE: When you register, you'll immediately receive a confirmation letter which includes a link giving you access to a private 17-minute video by Crescent. Called "Build Your Writing Practice:start now, never stop." i
mmediate, life-changing help in dismantling the push-pull and empowering your writing NOW ... in the form of  The link is included in your confirmation letter. Watch it, act on it, and you'll be rockin' and rollin' even before the first session.

DURING: Of course, the interaction; with Crescent and your Fearless colleagues. But besides that, you'll get 25 + pages of valuable material, given at the workshop.  Besides its usefulness in your on-going Fearless practice, you'll get that special insider's I-was-there-first satisfaction: Crescent's book on Fearless Writing will be published in 2014. The hand-outs are a sneak preview of the book's core principles.

AFTER: Questions come up. Discouragements and setbacks happen. So do unexpected breakthroughs and successes. How do you live what you've discovered in Fearless; how, and with whom can you share your ongoing discoveries? Now you have an option, there whenever you need it. You get automatic access to Fearlessly Onward, a private Facebook page open only to Fearless alumni. The discussions that go on there are transparent, lively, fascinating, supportive... and they are among colleagues who get it, as well as Crescent. 

Now, all of the above is part of every Fearless, anywhere in the world. But...

At a Whole Enchilada Fearless in Vermont, you'll also:

... be in an area of America storied for its natural beauty, its long-time history as a haven for writers and artists, its progressive civic life. You'll help form and become part of an unusually rollicking, supportive, comfortable temporary creative community (or similarly-minded, -hearted folks are drawn to Fearless, especially the Whole Enchilada one): we always surprise ourselves and each other!

Here, what you see and touch is as vibrant, and expansive as the inner Fearless experience.

Here, you'll get to live the workshop's timeless, holistic principles, down-to-earth yet sublime, which integrate the extraordinary work & play of creation with daily life.

Here, you'll
  • use movement, nature, nourishment & rest to renew your creative & whole-life self
  • walk, hike, swim & just look: spectacular, wide-open views and vistas everywhere you turn
  • restore your body & rest your mind with for-any-level-or-shape-friendly movement
  • practice pure playfulness, making it up as you go along with fear-free improv
  • experience "first-brain" some of Fearless's neuro-physiological benefits
  • explore the gardens, woods & meadows of several hundred acres of pristine, protected natural Vermont
  • help yourself to a cornucopia of beautiful home-style meals, mostly created with local (including right out of Crescent & David's garden), seasonal, and regional ingredients - food as nourishing, satisfying, generous, and delicious as your own emerging sense of possibility

Erase the line between work and play  --- not only in Fearless sessions but in exuberant optional guided hikes, and optional daily sessions in improv, and several forms of movement.  Our guest instructors are talented, delightful, each Fearless-compatible in his or her approach. Movement sessions are held in a glowing, light-filled studio.

Imagine all the exuberance of a Fearless PLUS the ultimate 4-day summer camp for creative, intelligent, thoughtful people... (people not, however, without their goofball side, or willing to find it). That's what the Whole Enchilada brings.

And guess what: there's a money-back, no-hassle guarantee. That's how sure "your fearless leader" is that you are going to get every single thing she's promised... and then some.

Limited to fifteen: register now!
