Are We Right For You?

What is Gateless?

Enso 1.jpg

Are you the kind of person who gets up at 4 am to watch a meteor shower on a darkened playing field?

Do you want to create surrounded by open-minded individuals who honor your work?

Would you like to be with boundary keepers who value collaboration and keep the page confidential?

Can you carve out a nook or cranny in which to write for an hour and a half every week?

Do you long for those with a great sense of humor and wonder?

Are you the type who wants to believe in Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster but aren't a crazy conspiracy theorist?

Gateless Writing is a neuroscience- based method combined with elements of Eastern non-dualities that helps quiet the inner critic. Because of that quieting, in a Gateless salon you create with ease, whatever your genre, format, or project. You leave affirmed and energized.

 

Gateless salons are designed to help you generate content, not criticize or it. We meet each week and begin with a bit of play, then a meditation followed by a prompt and quiet writing time. After, using the Gateless methodology, writers read aloud their work. The positive feedback you receive can then be accessed later to expand and deepen the work in revision.

 

In salon, you learn to listen differently. You listen for strength and beauty. You spend time with writers who stay on the page with you. And you write week after week.

 

In salon, given camaraderie, not competition, you learn craft through example, grow in confidence, and experience greater productivity.

Gateless helps writers of all backgrounds and skill levels. It helps you break through blocks and expand your creative brilliance.
