WRITE YOUR WAY HOME

A SIX WEEK WRITING INTENSIVE WORKSHOP DESIGNED TO HELP YOU DIG DEEP, DISCOVER YOUR TRUTH & FIND FREEDOM IN YOUR STORY

_DSC3743_edited.jpg

"Tell your story. Shout it. Write it. 

Whisper it if you have to. But tell it. 

Some won't understand it. Some will right out reject it. 

But many will Thank you for it.

And then the most magical thing will happen. 

One by one...Your tribe will gather

And you will never feel alone again."

                                            -L.R. Knost

Do you feel the story lurking in the depths of your soul? It's there, you can feel it, settled just below the surface like an aching in your bones. It yearns to be set free, it's ready to be born. It's ready to be seen, heard, and felt. 

We all have a story and each one is as unique and beautiful as the woman who owns it. We have been taught through many years of conditioning that we are not worthy, that we are not good enough. That our stories don't matter.

 

It's time to change these thought patterns.  It's time Break free from the misguided perceptions that society has placed on us. Remove your chains and set yourself free. Shake the dust from your soul, and embrace your courage. You are a Warrior, a Goddess,  A Mother and a Healer. You are a Woman and you have a story to tell. 

Writing your story is a step into reclaiming your feminine power. Your Inner Warrior. It is your sacred right to be seen and heard. Your story becomes your road map to guide you in your healing.

 

But where do we begin.

First we must Undo, Unravel, Unlearn and Unbecome. We must remember who we were before the world got its hands on us. We must create sacred space and time for our healing. We must dig deep to find our true and authentic voice. We must remove the dust and clear away the cobwebs. We must remind ourselves daily that we are children of the universe and our stories are important.

We must pick up pen and paper and honor our own sacred journey. 

We must write to find our way home......

I have rebelled against society, 
I have crashed through waves of pain and grief. 
I have soared through sun filled summer winds 
and drown in the seas of my own self hatred.  
I have loved and lost many times over. 


I  stand before you now peaceful and authentically free. 
I have surfaced through my chaos to find true self.  
My scars a testament to where I have been.  A trophy of survival. 


How did I get here you ask?
I wrote, and I wrote,

and I wrote, until my soul let go
the secrets it had been hiding


Pen to paper, a road map emerged
A healing journey
to sacred self
I wrote myself home............................

 I invite you my sweet gypsy sister on this journey of writing,

self-discovery, healing, and redemption

We all have a story to tell. A story that lingers in the depth of our souls. Are you ready to find your unique story?

Only you can choose the words. You are brave and courageous. 

Your story is as beautiful as the words that will tell it, the heart that keeps it hidden, and the eyes it hides behind. 

During this six week journey, you will put pen to paper to find your authentic voice. You will dig deep to find the magic that resides within you. You will create space and reconnect with the beauty that is You. You will push boundaries and unbind your wild. You will embrace your inner warrior. You will find your ROAD MAP to peace.

About Shannon

Shannon Kelly is the creator and editor of the Vintage Gypsy Magazine. She is a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. She is a rebel child and a gypsy spirit. She believes in trusting the journey and that our strength as women comes from the bonds of friendship we nurture and the kindred sisterhood we share.

Sharing our stories empowers us all to live a more inspired life, and by doing so, we create positive change within our communities.

We can change the world, One story at a time.

VG-TheBridge(24of25).jpg

Life is an ever evolving  story, it ebbs and flows with the tides. Good times......Bad times... and sometimes we just feel like we are drowning. Sometimes we cry, sometimes we dance but each moment is meant to be savored and even the darkness can be celebrated for with it always comes a little light or at least a lesson.

 

I had always kept a journal as a child, it was filled with stories of grand adventures and handsome princes. Like every other little girl, I dreamed of how perfect my life was going to be. But that's not exactly how things turned out. I have spent most of my time in this life wandering aimlessly trying to fit in somewhere or with someone, a gypsy one might say. A rebel child with a wild spirit. Failed relationships, lack of true connection, addiction, childhood trauma, and the grand adventure that has been my own children. I have learned through writing that I can let the past go and embrace the days to come. I can move through and heal the parts of my heart that I've always felt were broken and tarnished. I have found my true voice and find strength in sharing it with the world. I have found healing in my pen....

 

My story is not that different from many others, but perhaps my ending will be....

 

We all have a story to tell. Our past makes us who we are today, and by sharing our stories we have an amazing opportunity to inspire others.

Challenges make us grow stronger and there is magic that resides outside of our comfort zone. We must understand our own value and recognize ourselves as worthy to fully own our experiences, and live with authenticity.  

Every woman has a story, whether you are an entrepreneur, a mother, a sister, a healer, or a professional, you have beauty, power and truth inside of you that can illuminate the world. Every woman’s story has meaning, and wisdom. Every woman's gifts a blessing. Every woman’s unique perspective a contribution to the world that we can all learn, grow and heal from.⠀⠀

 

The world needs your story........⠀

I have been on my spiritual journey since 2015. Since then, I have been exploring and taking part in different healing modalities. The latest modality that I've been exploring is journaling.  A few weeks before we became quarantined, I signed up for Shannon's Write your way home workshop, and I was so thankful that I did!  The timing was synchronistic; every morning, I woke up, got my coffee, and was excited to open up my journal prompt. Some of the prompts pierced my heart and got to the root of some of my life challenges.  Some of the prompts made me smile, helped me heal, and sometimes as I'd write, the tears would flow as healing through writing was taking place.  I was longing for more when the journal workshop ended, but it was amazing because a channel opened up for me, and I was able to begin to express my challenges through writing.

I look forward to taking part in more of Shannon's writing and journaling workshops. And, I highly recommend her writing workshops to anyone ready to heal from their wounds.

Shannon is a beautiful loving soul that crossed my path, in my opinion, not by accident  but at a time in my life when I needed to put my thoughts/life into perspective.

 

The daily writing prompts had me dig deep down into the soul, turning inward, one of the most scariest things but yet most clarifying internal process,  revealing to me that I have been the only one holding myself back all this time.  

 

The 6 week writing workshop is intense, does it require work? YES it does! but there is nothing more gratifying than works of the heart.

 

Heal the soul first, then the mind and body will follow.

 

Thank you Shannon

I really enjoyed the write your way home writing course. It let me open many doors in my writing and in my personal healing. The daily prompts kept me on track, and held my attention as the class progressed. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is wanting to enhance their writing abilities. Thank you so much vintage gypsy for the opportunity.

I wanted to write – differently, with a guide who could sense something deeper within me and speak to that part of me. Shannon was the perfect pairing to my Ask.
Shannon’s loving nature is so supportive and was very helpful in learning to express myself more. Shannon’s prompts are not surface and she was able to take me into deeper waters of awareness, discovering more about who I am.
Shannon’s door opening skills to the Akashic Records brought to light some key aspects to see, embrace and transform helping me along my journey.
If doing any of these things pulls at you, don’t hesitate, for Shannon holds some keys you will want to use to open doors you may have had closed for a very long time.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your guiding light.

School Teacher

have just completed the inaugural Gypsy Writer’s Course “Writing Your Way Home” and I can’t say enough about how the course has changed my life.  I often said “someday I will write something that others will want to read” but I never actually put pen to paper.  This course and Shannon’s support has been the much needed catalyst for me to develop a daily writing practice that is bringing me healing, an awareness of my creativity and a new level of confidence to tackle my dreams. 5 things I am grateful for:

  1. Writing Your Way Home – flexible, organic, individualistic.

  2. Daily writing prompts delivered bright and early every day for the Power Hour.

  3. Daily readings that supported a deeper exploration of my soul, mind and heart.

  4. Six weekly one on one meetings scheduled at my convenience for that extra support and encouragement.

  5. Shannon’s professional insight and wisdom that coaxed my buried creativity to reach for the light.

Shannon Kelly offers a beautiful journey of self discovery with Gypsy Writers.  I initially felt nervous about taking this course because I did not feel confident in my ability to write creatively.  I am so glad I made the decision to join.  Gypsy Writers helped me to grow both mentally and spiritually, and I discovered I can write! It felt so good to learn the healing process of writing.  Shannon offers enormous support and guidance, both for the group and one on one. She provides a warm and loving environment in which all members feel comfortable and supportive of each other.  Thank you Shannon for creating this opportunity to have such an amazing journey.

What I loved the most is that You don’t have to be a great writer to enjoy this process, but I sure started to like the feeling of pen to paper within the first few days and looked forward to each poetically prompt. Learning about different writing styles and methods, weaved beautifully between very thought-provoking questions kept me inspired, interested and requested inner contemplation, realization and growth. Spurring awareness, healing and expression with confidence and joy. Shannon’s ability to provide a sacred container for your exploration, truths and your unique self-expression further deepened my confidence in the process. I felt a powerful shift from playing small and feeling unheard to sincerely appreciating my own voice and my new-found ability to express it, which was a pretty neat outcome, since I thought I was just working on my writing skills! The value of this program far outweighs the investment and is so easy to follow. Shannon provides no fail support and will guide you lovingly and expertly through this incredible program. Feel completely supported and worthy of this Divine opportunity to become aware of your wild and walk away with your roadmap to peace. I felt a huge sense of calm and accomplishment after completion and encourage you all to take a delicate look at what feeds your soul. I can't wait for the next one, Sweet Shannon!

Bravo!

If a writing course could be a dessert this one would be decadent! Write Your Way Home hit me in a spot I didn’t know was there or needed attention, until I heard it’s call as I read about the course. Over 6 weeks it took me deeper into layers of myself that I had not been through before. I have discovered more of myself and I love what I have found! Shannon somehow weaves with words a magical guided journey mixed with open ended exploration that allows you to enter from a place you feel resonates with you.  She so vulnerably shares her own journey in a way that creates a soft and safe landing for others to be seen and heard. She draws out the silenced desire to give our stories a voice to be heard by others and most importantly ourselves, reminding us that we matter - our stories do matter. And to let them be seen. I am looking forward to continuing on with the second part of this journey with her!
