Conversations with the self: March 16, 2019 1-3pm
We can look at creative practices like writing as ritual, much like yoga and meditation. Writing is a form of self-study: a deep dive to purge what no longer serves us, drawing us into contemplative inquiry. The practice of journaling or free-writing is an exercise in presence and discipline, much like maintaining a yoga or meditation practice. By developing a daily process of releasing thoughts to paper, we become more cognizant of where we’ve been stuck, noticing the repeating habits or patterns that block us from progress. This session will begin with slow, methodical movement to direct and shape the breath, followed by a guided meditation to quiet the mind. Then, we'll channel the muse through a series of free-writing exercises to move past blockages, hone your authentic voice, and get the creative juices flowing. Bring your journal and a pen—we're diving deep!
