About Freefall

Writing Without a Parachute

Freefall invokes the courage to fall without a parachute, into the words as they come, into the thoughts before they have fully formed in the mind, into the unplanned structures that take shape, without prompting, to contain them.

Freefall is a method some writers discover spontaneously, but many have to (re)learn: the technique of writing from the larger Self, beyond reach of the ego and its censors.

What People Say

“Freefall has grounded me in my ‘voice’ at last! I could have gone on floundering for years without that quiet week with Barbara, fishing into the depths of myself.”

Helena Cornelius,

“Without a doubt, it was your input at that first Freefall seminar that gave me faith. Since then, I’ve been writing one or two books a year, and have found myself at the giddy point of having gone from being a long shot to having a shot.”
