As a psychotherapist in New York City, I appreciate the therapeutic benefits of free writing, and adding exploration can bring out idle emotions, which have possibly been stuck for many years. This was a unique experiment for which has inspired me in a multitude of ways in my business and personal creative life. All I can say is that an enormous inner shift occurred. I could not recommend Karen Kasaba's Guided Writing Tours more - if you are looking for the unexpected, for the inspiring, for the creative in-the-moment burst of "ah-ha", then I believe this is the path for you (and it is not just for professional writers, but anyone who wants to get out of the box a little and explore profound life themes). It certainly is something I would look to do again on my next trip west.

Karen Kasaba's Guided Writing Tour helped pull me out of my writing rut! Karen is supportive and encouraging and her prompts are whimsical and fun. I recently participated in her "NOW" tour and ended up with the beginning of a new short story!

Karen Kasaba's Guided Writing Tour to the Hammer Museum was fun, entertaining, enlightening, and helped me see and approach my writing from a whole new perspective. Karen is a gifted guide. As other members of the tour shared their responses, I could see just how one-of-a-kind each of our voices is, and how it can open up our work and our lives to share them in this kind of safe setting. I can't wait to go on the next one!

I was a bit wary as I’m not a “writer,” although I do have to write for my work. The experience, and Karen’s special way to draw me into the writing, was wonderful. I did have resistance to begin writing on my blank page at first. Thoughts came up like “No,” “I don’t want to,” “I don’t know how, I don’t know what.” But then I decided to just put my pen on the paper and start moving my hand. WELL…I started to write. And write. And write. Filling pages, until it was time to stop. The sharing was great, I really loved our giving group, got wonderful feedback and ahas, and got to hear what others discovered. The Psychic Eye reading itself was terrific and a very neat experience. And writing afterwards in the charming and welcoming Rumi Cafe was truly amazing. We had Rumi special tea made right at our table…and the thoughts and words filled the pages again. I discovered many things, and got clearer and closer to what MY transformational promise is as a coach. And got a so much accomplished on the Talk that I’ve been trying to write on my own for a long while now. It was truly amazing.
The discovery, the shift, the growth in one afternoon on this Guided Writing Tour was more than I expected! And I got a wonderful souvenir. The opening of a channel to me, previously not seen.
