Writing the Energetic Body – LIVE WORKSHOP
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™ will use 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.

(Writing the Energetic Body was formally—and is still sometimes called—Journaling through the Chakras)
I’ve taken Holly’s workshops: Journaling through the Chakras 1 and 2. They were wonderful and I gained many insights about myself. I’ve taken many yoga classes taught by Holly and I always come out smiling. She is a remarkable teacher and an incredible human being. Holly emanates joy and love and happiness. ~ Dorlee Henderson
There is an undercurrent of laughter that is present when ever Holly speaks – it is impossible not to enjoy being around her. ~ Suzanne Jobin
Journaling Through the Chakras with Holly was an emotionally releasing experience. I went to this workshop while I was up in Flagstaff for the Yoga Festival. What drew me first was the “Journaling” part because I used to fill journals from …my late teens into my early twenties. I was interested in putting my emotions to paper again in an enlightened and loving environment. This brought my thoughts and feelings to a whole other level. My words came from my higher self, a self that we all have and can easily fine tune with the right intention and experiences in our life. This experience for me was so right. I let a lot go that day that I never would before have even gave light to. Freedom is truly something you feel and letting all that go with the guidance of the sacred chakras and Holly’s meditative free flowing teaching made that possible. Her vibe cannot be taught. She is here as a gift from Universe to help others reach for their higher self and live in the light. ~ Sarah Waraksa
