Conscious Grant Writing: Advice on Harnessing Your Passion and Staving Off Burnout

For your convenience, you can download the webinar slides here.

Grant writing can be a really stressful endeavor – especially at this time of year when we’re juggling deadlines and family commitments. Join Jana Hexter for a fascinating conversation about how to imbue the sacred into grant writing so that you are left fulfilled and nourished by the process. She believes that when we consciously do grant development work it becomes deeply rewarding sacred service and that our grants radiate and move people's hearts and souls.

To succeed in creating a beautiful grant proposal (and world) it’s critical that we create an empowering context for ourselves to do the work. That means embracing beliefs that serve us, and disarming those that don't, and truly caring for ourselves throughout the process - otherwise we just get drained while trying to do our best for the world.

In this on-demand webinar we’ll explore:

  • 7 reasons that grantwriting is stressful and takes a toll on you.
  • An effective alternative to grant writing in a fast-paced, high-pressure and fear-driven environment.
  • 10 core concepts and beliefs included in a holistic and spiritually nourishing approach to grant writing.
