“Working with Naomi was like
having someone who is for you,
who keeps seeing you and
accepting you. I couldn't have
written the book without Naomi.
She is truly my fairy godmother
~ Katayoon Zandvakili: author,
My Beautiful Impostor
"Naomi has provided unwavering support, profound mirroring, and
has gently guided and encouraged
me, again and again, to write from the place of my true and authentic self.
In the process, I have come into relationship with my deepest
creative self, after a lifetime of longing and disconnection from it. This gift beyond measure I attribute
in large part to Naomi's soulful,
loving, supportive and wise guidance."
~ Carolyn Shoshana Fershtman,
Ph.D., Psychologist; author,
Carrying Joseph's Bones
“Naomi Rose has been instrumental
in keeping the project of the book
I'm writing alive. Her insight, understanding, encouragement,
and caring have helped me to remove confusion, show me a path, and keep me inspired and going. No one else I know could have aided me in such a way.”
~ Billy Weprin, author,
Gifts of the Day
“ Naomi encouraged me to do the joyful thing, instead of the things I think I should do. This was very affirming. And I felt heard, in a very strong initial way. It's different from trying to write a book on my own, because it feels like what I'm doing
is being done in relationship. ”
~ Shirley R. McGinnis, author, Sometimes Love Is Enough
"You have been utterly exceptional.
I cannot imagine another editor on
the planet who could step into my shoes and edit esoteric material as beautifully and sincerely as
~ Rebecca Field, author,
To Choose the Fire of the Cosmos

"A daring, taboo-breaking, visceral, intensely moving novel. It's impossible not to get wrapped up in the characters and their passions,
only to be surprised again and again. You won't be able to let go of this book, any more than it will let go of you. Highly recommended!"

End-of-Year Thank You!
Without you reading this newsletter ~ whether for the first time or whether you have been a faithful reader for some time ~ I would not be inspired to share my best understanding of what makes for deep writing, how it touches the heart and soul, and how we all can access it if we are called to.
This has been, looking back, a most eventful year here at Writing from the Deeper Self and Rose Press. I am sure it has been eventful for you as well. These are rather amazing times we are living in, and being asked to bring our deepest hearts and minds to. And especially with the rise and expansion of self-publishing, now, writing a book ranks as one of the most potent things a person can do to make a difference in the world.
One of the aspects I most love about the Writing from the Deeper Self process ~ in my ongoing work as a Book Whisperer/Developer ~ is that it is so much more than simply cranking out a product in order to get your name known, career advanced, message across, and so on. It is all that, of course; but it is so much more.
When you write a book that you are really wanting to write with all of you, something magical happens. Some dormant seed within you takes life when you bring your (perhaps secret) desire into form through writing a book. Far more than simply producing pages (though that happens, too), you listen to the holy presence that wants expression in and through you. You let the egg of your dormancy crack, and begin growing a life.
These birth and
midwifing metaphors are not too much to describe what happens when I sit
with a client (in person in my Oakland studio, or on the phone if they
live out of the San Francisco Bay Area). Deep desire wells up when given
the attentive space, and makes itself known similarly to an angelic annunciation.
Of course, fears may come when we receive this "announcement"
~ such as, "Who am I to think I really have something to say?"
and "Who would even care?" and so on. But if the desire is a
true one, it must have its birth.
Some clients have just recently begun working with me, and are still in the early process of finding their way. Some know what they want to write about and confer with me as to how, and what has resonance, and what their natural creative ways are so that they can be themselves as they allow their books to take form.
Others are so close to the inchoate desire ~ the "Uh, ah, uh" of wanting, without quite yet knowing what specifically is wanted ~ that their process right now is to look into themselves and see what has life, what calls them, and what fears block the answering of that call. This too, for me, is a holy encounter: to help give voice to what wants to become most real.
My own books also have had a life, this past year. MotherWealth: The Feminine Path to Money was revised and published in 2012, and while making its way into the world somewhat slowly, still has garnered a very deep appreciation from its readers. It has been my intention for quite a few years to bring the inner life more into the outer arena, and the realm of money is an unusual and wonderful place to do this.
So perhaps 2013 is your year to let what is in you come out in a healing and beautiful way, through writing a book. If so, I am here. You can contact me for a free 1/2-hour phone consultation, to find out if this is something that is really for you, and if I am the person to help you with it.

Remember what God is said to have said to us, at a pre-cognitive level that we all carry around:
"I was a hidden treasure, and I longed to be known."
Your hidden treasure ~ once it comes forth ~ is our nourishment and our healing. Think about bringing out your light, this year, as a book that will outshine your ~ and all of our ~ fears.
Happy New Year.
With thankfulness and love,

Writing from the Deeper Self
Bringing your treasures into the world...
If you have been longing to be really heard ~ really seen ~ really known ~ to find and speak from your true voice,
I can help you write the book of your heart so that not only do you come out with a book you can publish,
but you get to be nurtured and deeply heard, along the way.
What a gift to yourself ~ to your potential readers ~ and to the deeper Self within you.
And, on a practical level, once you are a published author, you can use your book to let people know about your work, your message, your other offerings, and your contribution to humanity. You can potentially more than make your investment in book-writing back, and build your platform as you mine and reveal your heart in writing.
I work with clients in person at my Oakland, CA studio. For those out of the San Francisco Bay Area, we work together by phone and email.
Sessions are 1 hour (longer sessions are also possible).
Fee packages include:
I also offer experienced assistance with:
