RosePressThe Writing Sanctuary


The Silence at the heart of things

from which inspiration flows....

Writing can be an exquisite way to discover and share your true being.  Writing a book can be an extended experience of self-encounter ~ like a long, nurturing retreat ~ allowing your inner treasures to be known through reflection and the unfoldment of expression.

For this to happen, though, something deeper needs to guide this "retreat" ~ something deeper than the conventions of writing you may have learned through school, work, cultural expectations, or the unattainable standards of the internalized, inner critic. Something needs to calm the frightened ego, to highlight the place of aliveness in the moment, and to give permission for you to follow what has heart, meaning, and truth.

When this takes place, the tyranny of writing falls away, replaced by the joy of discovery ~ self-realization ~ organic movement. What began as a wish and a chaotic jumble becomes a true body of work, with a heart and a life that both reflects and enhances your own. Writing a book becomes an authentically creative act ~ even a co-Creative act. And when you are done, what you have given to yourself, you now can choose to also give to the world.

These pages hold the living presence of who and where you were as you wrote. These books are living emanations, and healers in the world.

All Rose Press books are written in this way.


                    When 100,000 rose petals are gathered in the dark of early morning, placed into retorts

                      filled with solvent, and heated over time until their oil rises as a liquid distillation,

                      then you have just one pound of that most prized (and expensive) of aromatics,

                      rose essence (rose absolute).

                      In the same way, Rose Press books are the distillation of their authors' essence,

                      refined over time and many revisions to bring you into contact with the gift

                      of something fragrant and indescribably beautiful within yourself.
