I first came across Leesa’s work when her Expressive Writing Prompts for White Fragility and Spiritual Bypass were shared in a group I’m part of.  Her work opened my mind up to questions I had never considered in my life and I was so excited to get to chat to her about her work. 

And do you ever meet someone (even online) who you just click with and instantly love? Leesa and I spent about 2 hours talking and she is just an absolute joy and her work is SO important and so necessary. If you’re new to expressive writing, I know this episode is probably going to blow your mind because it’s so relevant and such a perfect tool for introverts and highly sensitive people. 


We also chat about:

  • Creating spontaneity within the structure of writing every day;
  • How expressive writing is so suited to introverted and highly sensitive people;
  • The importance of getting up early to connect with the quiet and the divine; 
  • Creating boundaries and advocating for ourselves so we can advocate for others;
  • Expressive writing to get clear on your thoughts before sharing with others and not get drained as much by others;
  • The curiousity of being introverted and using writing to delve further into that;
  • What the ‘art of self enquiry’ is and why it’s so important for introverts and highly sensitive people to review our internal programming;
  • How to do activism on your terms by working out what we’re really passionate about and putting our time and energy into that;
  • Using our words and writing to inspire and advocate for a cause.
