Bring the practice home.

With over one hundred writing and movement lessons ("sequences"), Sense Writing is a ground-breaking approach that merges principles of Somatic Education and neuro-plasticity into the creative process. 

Now for the first time, the same Sense Writing sequences that have allowed hundreds of people to "bring blood" to the delicate connections among their senses, imagination, and movement to increase creative flow, have been made into recordings.

These Sense Writing recordings are available only in our one-to-one training program.

How will I learn?

In addition to one-on-one meetings with me, you will have your own private, password-protected webpage (that looks something like the page you are reading) where you will post your work and communicate with me throughout the week. After each personal session, you will receive custom training recordings on your webpage that spiral through and reinforce the skills learned in our previous session together. These recordings are highly meditative and guiding.  All you do is press play and through the sequences, generate writing.  Sometimes, there also be a short training video. After each recorded session that you do, there is a short reflection template to fill out that I will read and comment on.

How much time will it require each week?  

That depends on how much you want to write. In addition to the 75-minute sessions, you will have a writing assignment for that week which is supported by the recorded training sequences. These recordings usually run 15-25 minutes, while the more in-depth sequences run 30-40 minutes. You can listen to and do these recordings as many times as you'd like.

Between our sessions, there are weeks off to rest, where you continue to do the training and send me your reflections.  These weeks that we don't meet are designed to give us time to reflect on and determine what shifts are happening in your writing practice.  For efficacy, it is highly recommended that Process and Craft finishes within 2 months of the start session, The Practice within 3 months, and The Masterclass within 6 months.

The Three Trainings

Sense Writing: Process and Craft, Module One (6 sessions)

Whether you are new to writing or an experienced writer stuck in a long-term project, Sense Writing: Process and Craft will shift the way you create.  Delve deeply into Sense Writing's first module, Constraints and Freedom, and learn pragmatic tools that will unlock your voice and find new habits guided by curiosity and a newly sharpened intuition rather than compulsion or feelings of "performance."  You will have the time to both discover the beautiful simplicity of your creative process and understand the complexity of it-- and it will be both of these that will keep you engaged and invested in your writing.

  • five 75-minute sessions with Madelyn over 6 weeks
  • one 75-minute follow-up (scheduled within one month of the last session)

  • one email/week (in addition to the reflections)
  • private webpage which allows you organize your work efficiently and track your progress
  • access to all recordings for the duration of your sessions plus one-month
  • one Sense Writing training mp3 at the end of the sessions for you to keep.

Sense Writing: The Practice, Module One and Two (10 sessions)

The Practice will teach you how to gently work with your nervous system to change your writing process and find a practice that is sustainable, not only for the writing you are working on now, but for long after.  We'll be covering and spiraling through the first two modules of Sense Writing (Constraints and Freedom and Differentiation/Integration), which include the tools to revise and revisit your work, as well as touch on the last two modules of Sense Writing, Articulated Sensitivity and Non-Habitual Flow. 

  • eight 75-minute sessions with Madelyn over 10 weeks 
  • two 75-minute follow-up (within three months of the last session)
  • custom training recording(s) following every session plus reflection
  • two emails/week (in addition to the reflection)
  • private webpage which allows you organize your work efficiently and track your progress
  • one Sense Writing training mp3 at the end of the sessions for you to keep
  • The Practice makes you are a Sense Writer for life, which means you have access to your private webpage and can listen to the training recordings and view the videos there for as long as Sense Writing exists.

Sense Writing: The Masterclass, All Four Modules (18 sessions)

*Highly-recommended for those who would like to work towards completing a long-term project. An in-depth study of all four modules.
