Amy has quietly held space for me as I navigate the writing waters…. her guidance and love show me so much power and grace in telling your story not just for your own healing but to heal others. Amy takes time to hear, to truly listen to the Heart in the story and the pain on the journey. She is, as a woman, daughter, friend, wife, Mother, Author, and Spiritual Divine Goddess being a force of creative nature and I am beyond grateful and blessed she shared her gift of words, guidance, and love with this world! My admiration for her clearly runs deep…. thank you, Amy, for honoring YOUR gifts! BIG gratitude and Reiki love to you, gorgeous girl!

Amy’s enthusiasm and skill set are a gift for anyone wishing to bring their book to life! She’s witty, sincere, and tough all at the same time – which makes her an awesome-ness coach! She has the ability to see every facet of creating – even when you don’t! Love her!

Aspiring Author

I was grateful I was able to take part in Amy’s writing retreat in July. I knew I love to write, but I actually didn’t have plans on writing a book. Little did I know, that suddenly during one of our morning workshops I realized that I too am to write a book. Due to Amy’s encouragement and knowledge about the whole process, I felt totally inspired and supported to commit to this creative endeavor. Thank you, Amy, you are pure magic!

If you have no idea where to start, or how to make your book dream a reality, Amy is the best gift you can give yourself. Her workshops are well organized and packed with hands-on​ opportunities to do the work and receive the feedback you need to propel your book forward.

I enjoy helping women tune into their message with love and openness. Birthing your book is no small task, but when you are in community with others who are at the same stage it can make all the difference! Group work is so energizing!

Taking the brave step to leave the routines of everyday life and travel to Costa Rica for dedicated writing time is a BIG DEAL. The Universe loves bold action and your bravery will be rewarded!

During our retreat, you will receive daily energy alignments so you can have a deeper understanding of your life purpose, your book’s message, and the “next right step” in your writing process. I’ll be there to help you interpret your guidance and translate it into book content. Everyone at Living Forest and I are a supportive team ready to help you all along the way!

Here’s what you’ll get IN ADDITION to the retreat!

1.    Two, 40-minute Group Calls (January 10th and January 20th) so you can get to know one another AND ask any questions that may be on your mind about the logistics of travel, expectations of the retreat, or anything that pops up! [$250 value]

2.    One, 30-minute Individual Call to clarify your goals and concerns about your book after we conclude our tropical retreat. [$197 value]

3.    Two, 60-minute Group Coaching Calls (Feb 10th and Feb 17th) to share progress and cheer each other on. [$350 value]

4.    Facebook Sisterhood– Access to an intimate and exclusive FB group where I’ll be interacting with you before and after the retreat. You’ll find support, celebration, and feedback from other ladies as well. [priceless]
