Writing the Energetic Body – LIVE WORKSHOP
I will announce live workshops, or, if you have a group of five or more people who would like to experience workshops live or via skype, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss details.
My intention for Writing the Energetic Body™ is to explore coping with change, healing, and taking responsibility for our selves, our society, and our planet, through creativity and the creative process.
Writing the Energetic Body™ uses the major chakra system as the “backbone” for self-exploration through writing. Creative visualization, gentle yoga asana and movement, sound, sensory stimulation, collage and writing prompts designed to “wake up” specific chakras will inspire a series of timed writings and creative excavation.
As a participant, you will:
- compassionately and creatively observe your Self
- uncover hidden impulses, stories, and patterns in your life
- awaken the body/mind
- utilize the breath for presence in the moment
- deepen and expand your creative vision
Each week, we will focus on the issues of one chakra.
1st Chakra – This is our entrance into the earthly plane, our right to be in the world. Issues surround survival and our “tribe”.
2nd Chakra – This is where we experience the power of relationships. We will explore pleasure, sexuality, emotions, and the desire to create.
3rd Chakra – This is where we gain our sense of personal identity, power, and will. Who are you? What is your purpose?
4th Chakra – We will open to compassion, self-acceptance, and love.
5th Chakra – We will look at clear communication, self-expression, creativity and “Divine Will”. What happens when you speak your Truth?
6th Chakra – We will explore perception, clarity of vision, and psychic ability. How do you see the world? How does intuition and imagination expand your life experience?
7th Chakra – How do we understand the world? What is our connection to Higher Power? We will look at thought as the seed of manifestation and how the energy of this “ethereal” chakra can be brought “down to earth”.
At the end of each class, attendees will be guided through a final relaxation meditation.
No writing workshop or yoga experience required. I promise, I am gentle.
Although it can be fun and enlightening, it is not necessary to share your writings!
Materials: a favorite pen, water, a yoga mat, and comfortable clothing.
