Writing the Energetic Body – Shedding Inhibition and Divining Your Intentions – 28 Days of Writing Past the Mind and into the Chakras
New Moon in Libra, October 5th, 2013 starts the next class!
New Moon is the time to plant intentions — and Libra is the sign of relationships and partnerships. Libra is ruled by Venus, so there is in increased desire for love, harmony, and beauty in our lives at this time. We may be asking ourselves questions about how to have more balance in our lives and our relationships, or how to have more beauty around us, or we may seek beauty in ourselves and relationships. How do we nurture our creative dreams? How do we nurture love, give love, and receive love?
We will begin the session with an intention setting ritual and start an exploration of our desires at the crown chakra and work our way down to the root, the earth, our place of manifestation.
Get ready to explore possibility, make (re)discoveries, release inhibition, and develop a writing practice.
Overview of the seven major chakras of the Hindu Chakra System:
1st Chakra – This is our entrance into the earthly plane, our right to be in the world. We will investigate issues surrounding survival and our “tribe”.
2nd Chakra – This is where we experience the power of relationships. We will plumb 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 a Higher Power? We will investigate thought as the seed of manifestation and how the energy of this “ethereal” chakra can be brought “down to earth”.
Some of the benefits of taking part in Writing the Energetic Body:
- compassionately and creatively observe the Self
- uncover hidden impulses, stories, and life patterns
- awaken the body/mind
- utilize the breath for presence in the moment
- deepen and expand creative vision
- loosen up and strengthen fluid writing
There is no need to “know” anything about the chakra system, our bodies physically and energetically hold information, and by freely writing we can tap into that knowledge.
Participants will receive daily writing prompts designed to stimulate a specific chakra for the given day in their in-boxes. We will spend four days on each chakra – three days of daily prompts and one open day where participants will have time to reflect and write whatever arises for them. We will spend only 30 minutes of writing on the given prompt. Participants will return their responses via email to me. Participants will also have the chance to upload their work to a private blog site to share and to give and receive feedback from other participants.
I will personally respond to your work via email.
As an added bonus, participants also receive either written, audio, or video instruction for movement, meditation, or breath work that will deepen the prompt for the day. Participants may use the additional instruction however they choose—and it is theirs to refer to whenever they like.
Om Shanti. This class is closed.
