Join Penney Peirce for the Intuition & Writing Immersion Retreat, April 11-16

Hello Writers,

Intuition and writing go together like clouds & rain, sun & sand beach.
Radical honesty infuses your words with a vibration that carries power.

Something exciting is coming this spring! April 11-16, I’m conducting an in-depth writing  workshop with a wonderful novelist and author of Writing WildTina Welling from Jackson Hole, WY. Tina has been a longtime faculty member at The Jackson Hole Writers Conference. I love Tina's novels, set in the West, and I definitely think someone should make movies out of them!

Here's what Tina has said about me: "I wrote about Penney in my book Writing Wild. In fact, my book’s central idea arose from reading Penney’s The Intuitive Way. She has written several other books on intuition and consciousness transformation since then. Her newest is Transparency'The thing about Penney’s advice is that it works,' says Martha Beck, bestselling author and columnist for Oprah Magazine. I am so pleased she and I are doing a workshop together."

Our workshop takes place on Hutchinson Island at a beautiful Marriott resort, off the coast of Stuart, FloridaThe soft energy of the tropics provides a tremendous amount of creative energy swirling as deep and alive as the ocean we’ll be working near each day. Tina visited there regularly as a child, and I live up the coast a few hours, so this is home territory for both of us.

I will guide participants in a 2-hour workshop every morning on intuition and how to use it to loosen up and enhance your creative process. Tina will conduct a 2-hour workshop every afternoon on the process of creative writing—both fiction and nonfiction. 

Tina and I will be onsite all day and evening, making ourselves available to you. We will host lunch for all the writers, and share beach walks, cool drinks poolside, writing quietly overlooking the ocean, strolling around the golf course, and visiting the nature preserve.

Tina has arranged for a limited number of rooms to be available for at a reduced price. You can check out the Hutchinson Island Marriott at the Indian River Plantation here:

To reserve your spot and find out about the logistics and cost, contact Tina: or call her at 307-413-0900. She's looking forward to talking with you.

Both Tina and I feel grateful to have this opportunity to learn from each other and from all of you, and we look forward to offering our experience writing nonfiction, novels, and short stories. We will both share our experiences in the mysterious world of agents, editors, publishers, and promotion. 

The intensive is open to attendees of all levels and interests. Please join us in this adventure; together we’ll create wonders!

Penney's Direct Writing Guidance: from 2000!

When I feel lost in the undertow of my dominating mind, just let the motion go and look someone in the eyes. Just let the motion go and let another motion be. Any motion. The motion of the mind is just another Wind among many, blowing, blowing.

Let all meanings be. Let there be no set of thoughts that are right, none that are wrong. Let things stop. Let things change. Let things emerge. Let my mind be tricked by the larger FLOW. There is a Plan, but I must give up my limited way of defining this concept: the plan is I AM. Nothing is special. Nothing is a letdown. It is what it is.

Let my name have no meaning, no meaning in the arrangement of the letters, in the sound, in the associations I have about myself. My name: it is a moment, a place. A changing but steady vibration. A cooperative steady point for emergence of: BIG I AM.

Stop looking for meanings and control my mind!! How? Breathing. Moving the body artfully without internal commentary. BEING WITH other people beyond their mind patterns, beyond their winds. Get beyond the weather patterns. BE REAL. Don't COPE. Let my mind be a simple receiver. Let my mind be a simple relay of energy packets. Simple simple simple.

Where does it all come from and where does it all go? It's happening at once in all parts. The mind is just God looking at HimHerSelf, and it gets caught loving Itself — don't love yourself in the mirror. FLOW FLOW FLOW, feel love in action. Don't get caught in the senses. Don't stop unless it's an eternal moment. Forget MOMENTUM. Forget DRAMA. Get rid of disappointment. Don't be defined.

The ACTION is happening. I'm part. It pulls me into an awareness of it, shows me I AM it. Let go of the small identity. Become the ACTION.

I can't just save me, protect my private space and pretend the rest of the world doesn't exist. It's ME. I'm in all those people. I have to find myself first in this body, then in all the bodies. ME isn't my name. ME isn't hurt. ME isn't disappointed. ME isn't coping. ME is ACTING already in total commitment — it's OUT THERE doing big things and showing up beautifully in all good works all over the world. I'm already busy all over the world in big ways and small ways. Let the pace be set for this body here as it needs to be. But how will this body be drawn into the ACTION?

Remember how many channels for action there are, how many dimensions it's possible to function on at once. Greater I AM will drop me into channels and gently lift me out and transfer me to others. Be as much of the Greater ME as possible as it's happening. Let the moments blur into each other as they slip through me. Time moves through me, not me through time. Space moves through me, not me through space. ACTION moves through me, not me through it.

I must join the ACTION, already in progress. I hear the voices in there, hear the laughter. The kisses, the lovemaking, the rolling around in each other. Oh, the joy! I alone hold myself out of it and WHY? Waiting for the world to love me. When I am the world, already in ACTION, already in love. I am an I, not a me. ME needs, ME wants to receive. ME is one way: involutionary. I simply AM.

I am learning to unlearn. No MEMORY!! Have it all as I need it. Memory is a function of identity and only belongs to the limited mind. Accept that I already know all now. Let God/I focus it. Different amount of knowledge at different times, but there are no different moments — that's only a function of mind again, trying to be safe by being partial.

Receive the MOTHER through every mother I've ever had, through every child I've ever had. Receive the FATHER through every father I've ever had, through every child I've ever had.

Penney Peirce, channeled reading transcript, from the early 1980s

The human kingdom exists as a zone between the purely spiritual realm, or "the Father", and the physical, earthly realm, "the Mother." The human experience could be likened to "the Child," the fertile place where the two great forces meet and generate unending creativity. As we become consciously aware of the universal Father force while being fully committed to the physical body, or fully "ensouled" in the Mother, then the third and fourth dimensions collapse into each other, and the two ways of knowing reality fuse. Our experience of physical reality will transform as a critical mass of people have a conscious realization of this new, blended state of awareness, this reunification of body, mind, and spirit. The resulting new reality is what many people call the New Paradigm.
Fourth dimensional, spiritual awareness emerges from the center of atomic particles, literally ascending out of the cells of our bodies, and it simultaneously affects us in a descending fashion through our thoughts and inspirations. It is as though the sun is burning through our fog of illusion, and quickly now! There is to be a divine marriage soon, as the veil of separation between the realms dissolves. This will result in a greatly enhanced conviction of unity and a flood of clarity and new understanding. We will know that matter itself is conscious and alive, and will also have access to the vast knowledge that lies beyond the logical mind.
 As this process occurs, there will be a lightening, literally, of matter––more light and energy will flow through physical form, as increased vibration, and the refinement and sensitivity of our bodies will improve. As higher energy begins to run through us, we often mislabel it as anxiety or panic, and suppress it. Then it causes problems. We're seeing this in the dramatic psychological and emotional changes many people are experiencing now, and in the proliferation of "high frequency" diseases.
 As the transformation process accelerates, the need to clear the body of old, locked-in patterns of thought, belief, and personal identity becomes paramount. Otherwise these blockages will eventually "explode" in the presence of such white hot energy. So, one of the major functions of education now is to assist in this process of release and purification. Humanity, and each individual within it, is becoming a clear lens, a transmitter, a tuner.

Transparency: from the "Final Thoughts" Section of Peirce's Book

As I read back through what I have written in Transparency, I wonder: “Am I being naïve?” There is so much chaos in this bridge time, and so many are sure it’s leading to the destruction of much of humanity and a terrible shock for our planet—yet I see it as a positive thing, a vast clearing phase. I don’t know exactly where my optimism comes from, but it seems to originate way, way back in time, and deep down below the surface of events and thoughts. 

Perhaps it comes from the “me” who lives in that higher frequency reality we used to call the future. In this source place, sight goes away, hearing fades to a soft hum, and the tactile turns to something nearly unfeelable, like the neutral between hot and cold. What’s left after the senses are gone is a shiny nugget. It’s a bright little sun, the memory of the big suns in the universe and perhaps of the kind of sun the universe itself might be if we could go beyond it and look back. That’s where I go when I look for the source of my naïveté. It’s something about what the soul knows for sure.

I can’t say enough about the difference in the two realities—the opaque, linear one and the transparent, spherical-holographic one. Everything we know in linear terms is about to change into a new kind of functioning, and we’ll know it all with such added dimension that we’ll have to redefine life. Yes, the ego needs to go! Yes, our human consciousness needs to be shocked into waking up and breaking out from the familiarity of its hypnotized, glazed-over, prison-cell mentality. You don’t have to be shocked into it, though, because you are finding the knowledge you need, just as you need it, to wake up on your own. 

When we think in linear terms, achieving the transparent world seems logistically impossible. The left brain starts cranking hard to imagine every single person touching every other person, creating a linked network of clarity that will certainly take a very long time to occur. And overcoming millennia of vengeance, violence, apathy, and suffering definitely has the odds stacked firmly against it. Steam is coming out of our ears! 

But shift to spherical-holographic perception and transparency, where spirit and matter merge and intermingle, and it’s easier to sense the powerful effect a high-frequency, wisdom-rich, compassion-loaded, collective inner blueprint can have on humanity. Just as enlightenment can happen in any ordinary second, just as the reality you’ve dreamed of can become your daily life, so transparency can come upon you and become normal—with no apparent, logical cause. It simply emerges from your own field and from the field of humanity that has reached a critical mass of clarity. 

Not everyone on earth has to do all the work of becoming transparent alone. When the critical mass occurs, the transparent reality will seem like the next most natural thing. When the automobile, telephone, television, personal computer, and internet materialized, it didn’t take long before people couldn’t imagine the world without these things. So it will be with transparency.

Changing a Global Mindset

Years ago, I worked closely in a partnership with trance medium Kevin Ryerson, (who became well known through his connection with Shirley MacLaine and Gary Zukav), for four years. At the end of 1981, we did a large public event together.

During Kevin’s full trance state, when the enitities he worked with were speaking through him, one of the beings (John the Beloved) said that it was possible for our minds, when aligned with peace and compassion in a state of unified collective consciousness, to change the flow of events on the planet—in effect, to change destiny as it had been written.

John Lennon had just been assassinated (12/8/80) and I remember feeling so incredibly moved by his death, as though it were a sacred event somehow, even though I wasn’t an avid Beatles fan. John the Beloved, speaking through Kevin, said that it was indeed a powerful event and that the worldwide meditation for peace, organized by Yoko Ono afterward, was an even more powerful event.

He said that it was this worldwide aligning of minds in a common vibration of peace and harmony, that had changed the history of the planet. He said that President Reagan had been slated to die in an assassination attempt (3/30/81) and that the Queen of England was also supposed to die in an assassination attempt (6/13/81). It was this “global prayer for peace,” focused through the essence of John Lennon’s spirit, that had eliminated the need for these shocking deaths to bring consciousness to the masses.

Shift to 2017. We have been experiencing intense waves of heightened energy streaming through us and our organizations and systems. The energy that was stuck last year seems to be moving with great force now. Some days we want to scream, some days we want to sleep, some days we want to stuff our rising feelings (and the discomfort with receiving more of our own light) under a blanket of numbing food or addictive behaviors. But stuck energy is breaking loose anyway, materializing as devastating hurricanes and floods, mass shootings, and vast wildfires totally destroying huge areas of homes and farms.

I have a friend who was vacationing in Italy, and returned to Santa Rosa, California, not knowing about the fires, to find her home and all her possessions, all her files, flat-out destroyed. I can’t imagine the shock. When I spoke with her, she said her friends had been incredible, taking her in, providing for her, and she was actually fine. She said, “I guess this is my opportunity to experience a blank slate and create a new life.”

It occurred to me later, since I had lived just a few miles from the Sonoma County devastation for 30+ years, that this area of the country was filled with an inordinate number of highly spiritual people—people who have been clearing themselves of fear for many years. I wondered how many of those people had had deep positive responses to the losses like my friend had—where they did not add more pain into the world over the brutal “clearing,” where they did not take the victim stance, where they walked into the spaciousness that had been given them with open arms.

I imagined the power of a large group of people, faced with what most of humanity would think of as overwhelming tragedy, who united in a mindset that instead embraced compassion, harmony, possibility, and growth. If history could have been changed by a global meditation for peace in the early 1980s, how might we transform our attitude toward these sequences of mass tragedies that have come rolling at us like bowling balls? How might a group like that affect the need for the planet to undergo many more shocking events before the bulk of us wake up to what’s really happening?

We are learning to not validate tragedy, negativity, and the “poor me” reality—but to clear ourselves of all the limitation we cling to so we can rediscover who we REALLY are. To do that, it’s sometimes necessary to eliminate the comfort zone and old forms of identity we’ve been locked into, so we can find new talents and an expanded sense of self. Sometimes, deprivations occur so we can consciously choose to live fully instead of being apathetic, depressed, and half alive.

I ask us a question: How can we contribute to the stabilization of a positive mindset, shared by many people, that can change the need for the planet to go through the wringer in order to evolve?

Transparency: Moving Out of the Opaque Reality

“Most of us live in opaque bodies in an opaque world. We do not see through to what’s real and are rarely seen for who we truly are. We are resigned to an old, slow kind of perception in what’s becoming a painfully dense—or opaque—reality. Think how much of our time, energy, and resources is spent on self-protection and defense, keeping secrets, lying, hiding, and living by outmoded mores. Think how much misunderstanding and waste result from the belief that we live in a destructive, inimical world instead of an evolving, compassionate one.
These things are symptomatic of a reality we’ve long considered to be inevitable. It’s a reality where we live, partially hypnotized, believing we’re at the mercy of uncontrollable, unfair, random forces that prevent us from becoming our totality. It’s a reality where our original Light is dimmed and often blocked from penetrating into, flowing through, and radiating from us. This is the “old normal” way of life—the opaque reality.”
So begins Chapter 3 of my new book, Transparency. The planet, our bodies, and our reality have been accelerating for many, many years, and we are reaching a point where the old dense way of life, where suffering has been the norm, just doesn’t cut it. At this higher frequency, we naturally think there must be something better, lighter, more free, more loving. We want to be free of the opacity and fear—and many of us actually are finding the doorway through to the reality we have always called the “ideal.”
We are fortunate to live at a time where this magnificent transition, or transformation, is taking place. The early stages of it, granted, are chaotic and it can seem that negativity is dominating (I almost said trumping!) the good-hearted, common-sense way that has been valued by those who possess “character” throughout the ages. But this is a clearing of fear-based ideas and behaviors is part of transformation. We must clear our clutter—everything covering over our true, core selves, or our souls—so we can experience who we are without distraction. We now need to understand what causes the opaque reality and that can clear it to reveal the transparent reality where souls, in their vast wisdom, cocreate an enlightened world.

Here are some of the things that contribute to the opaque reality:
·    Physical/individual consciousness, only seeing the physical, isolation
·    Either-or thinking, polarity thinking, narrowing possibilities
·    Negative emotion, negative thinking, contractions of the Flow
·    Fixed ideas and rules, too much definition, partial view of life
·    Separation from soul, from others; fear of attack; need to defend
·    Linear perception; seeing gaps between things; breaking time into past, present, future; projecting the mind away from present moment
·    Lack of trust in self, others, the Flow

And here are things that help facilitate the transparent reality:
·    Connection to nonphysical realms and identity as soul
·    Naturally entitled to your destiny and self-expression
·    Positive emotion and thought; joyful creativity
·    Experience of oneness and belonging, safety
·    Trusting self, others, and the Flow; experiencing fluidity

I invite you to read more about this process of becoming personally and societally transparent in my new book, Transparency: Seeing Through to Our Expanded Human Capacity. It’s widely available at bookstores and online.
