Whatever it is that's waiting in your heart, we can listen it forth into form together. You get the benefit of a deep, attuned process that will organically lead you to a product. 

It could be a book or some other form of writing. It could be another art form. It could be an invention, a social benefit, a business, and much more.

While book development is my specialty, the process behind it — Writing from the Deeper Self — works for many different arenas of life, interest, and heart. Whatever your focus, the process will bring you closer to yourself.

And the product that comes out of it will be an organic development that brings good things to you and to the world.

Write the book of your heart? Bring forth a tangible expression of some other heart-wish or idea? Of course! If it's in you, you have to bring it out.


You may need what I can bring to you — but even more importantly, you need what you can bring to you. You just need a trustworthy way to see it, hold it, treasure it, shape it, and share it. That's where I come in: I'll help you mine your inner treasures and bring them into the world as a book, other written work, or pretty much anything else that's knocking at the door of your heart. I'll even help you get your book into print. And much more.

If the inner life matters to you, 
then the expression of your inner life deserves to be
correspondingly deep, true, and beautiful.

Express your deep heart in some tangible, shareable form.
Uncover wonderful, creative qualities in yourself in the process.
Bring forth inner treasures to enrich you and your grateful recipients.
Help heal the world from the inside out.

Whether it’s a book or some other form of writing, 
or something else entirely (e.g., art, music, a beneficial business, etc.), 
the final product should reflect (rather than ignore, obscure, or cosmeticize) 
the uniqueness and dimensionality of the person who birthed it.

And the process of getting to this authentic expression — as well as bringing it all the way into form — should be one of self-discovery, creativity, healing, and even love.

I offer a complimentary consultation to explore what's knocking on the inside of your heart that wants to come into a resonant form. Whether it's a book or some other kind of writing . . .  an artistic medium . . .  an urging towards an innovation, invention, benefit-based business, or (fill in the blank), let's explore what's bubbling inside you and see how I can support you to bring it forth — in a way that serves and heals you and also the world.

What Naomi does superbly is to evoke the creative and articulate in each person who works with her, to such a degree that each one is surprised at his/her own talent for expression.

Naomi Rose

As a Creative Midwife as well as a Book Developer, I believe in the power of listening forth what’s in you. I trust that when you are truly heard--by yourself as well as by me--everything that wants to be known opens itself to you like a flower. Then, the journey becomes holy (and whole-making) as well as getting-it-done practical.

Your longing to bring forth something waiting in your heart can be birthed into a tangible form for your own fulfillment and even the world’s healing, in a way that makes you happy. Imagine feeling sure of how to start--how to proceed-- that you’ve got what it takes. Imagine not being stopped in your tracks by doubts and fears, but eagerly moving into the process of being true to yourself as you bring your work forth. 

How can you bring forth the unearthing of your deep heart in a way that’s enlarging, fulfilling, authentic, alive, abidingly interesting to yourself as well as others--and not have to do it alone?

That’s where I come in.
Together, we will nurture you by listening forth what’s in you that wants to be know and bringing it into a form that suits you, those with whom you choose to share it, and the heart of the world.

You don't need to "have it all together." It's a journey of discovery. Things will make themselves known. There's so much to enjoy in this process. Come, let's begin!


This holistic process is designed to nurture, reflect, and enhance you, and bring your treasures to light and into the world.

You don't need to do it alone.

I'm here to encourage your flowering.

Naomi Rose has provided unwavering support, profound mirroring, and has gently guided and encouraged me 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 to Naomi’s soulful, loving, supportive, and wise guidance.

Writing from the Deeper Self
A holistic approach to uncover your inner treasures through writing

Writing from the Deeper Self rose image + title, final copy.jpg

Writing can show you to yourself in longed-for ways, and give your readers a reflection of who they are. When you give yourself completely to the process—not just with your mind but with all of you, even your heart, cells, and breath—everything cooperates; and you wonder in amazement, “Did I write that?” This unique and sacred approach to writing offers you doors into the land you long to re-inhabit. Then, what you share with others (if you wish to) calls them home, too. 



Creative Midwifery
Helping you discover and bring to life what wants to be known

If the urge to bring something other than writing into form is knocking on the door of your heart, you know it won’t let you go until you start bringing it to life. Then, as soon as you start taking it to heart, it supports you. Together, we can find out what wants to be birthed in you--—an artistic work, a business idea, a vision clamoring for details—and bring it out in a way that feels natural to you and adds value to your life.

Book Development
Listening the book of your heart into being

Book Development image (drawing + painted rose on book) (no caption).jpg

“Book Development” allows your book to develops organically, rather than from some one-size-fits-all template. It is based on who you are, where you are within yourself, and what you long to accomplish. As I help you listen to yourself deeply and trust what comes, enthusiasm, creativity, and inspiration supplant anxiety, and you can’t wait to give yourself to the writing process. When you are done, you have a vibrant, publishable manuscript—and a door into the next chapter of your life. 


Editing & Proofreading
Because your writing deserves the most professional fine-tuning treatment

Editing & Proofreading image,  larger size.JPG

Editing: A truly helpful editor does more than head off typos at the pass: s/he makes the difference between a book that is readable and one that is dispensable, and ensures that your best intentions come across to your readers. 
Proofreading: Proofreading isn’t a luxury—it’s a crucial part of any written presentation. A proofreader’s detailed sweep through your writing can make the difference between being taken seriously and being immediately dismissed, since mistakes, typos, wrong words, etc. make a poor impression on your readers.


Translating the image in your heart into art

A line drawing in black-and-white or color may be the perfect way to bring your book, business, family album, etc., to life. Since a picture equals 10,000 words, you can add value, appeal, warmth, and even branding recognition with an illustration custom designed to suit your esthetic and your needs. My training as a visual artist makes this a collaborative process. You tell me what you want, I come up with a sketch, you give feedback, I integrate your wishes—until you cry (in delight, of course), “That’s it!” 

Book Writing For Therapists
Because a great listener like you deserves to be heard far and wide

Book Writing for Therapists listening image (no caption).jpg

As a person of depth who believes that wholeness is not only possible but also a birthright, you have valuable insights to share about the human journey. By mining the depths of your own heart and experience in a book, you expand your healing influence beyond the therapy office, touch your readers in the deepest places, and enhance career opportunities. Your adeptness with listening and connecting threads of meaning makes you a natural for this healing approach to book writing.

About Naomi Rose

Naomi photo (6).jpg

As a child, I was blessed to be read bedtime stories hand-picked by my parents, as well as told original, on-the-spot stories by my radio-script-writing father. His tender, mythic imagination and resonant voice helped keep my imagination afloat. My mother wrote short stories; and between them, I was privy to transporting worlds, including those offered by the contents of their bookcase. 

Fast-forward many years to my adult career: a Masters in English Literature; over 25 years in the publications field working with publishers, authors, and businesses; graduate studies in transpersonal psychology to find my way back to the innocence of childhood; resuscitating my own yearnings for expression through writing, visual art, and music; and integrating all this into “Writing from the Deeper Self”—my contribution to human beings bringing forth their “hidden treasures” and so healing the world.
