The current session of Writing the Energetic Body - Shedding Inhibition and Divining Your Intentions Workshop – 28 Days of Writing Past the Mind and into the Chakras is closed. Thanks for asking!
Stay tuned for the next session coming in March. New dates for the next round will be announced soon.
Feel free to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions - or send in a comment.
In the meantime - Happy Writing!
Writing the Energetic Body will use the major chakra system as the “backbone” for self-exploration through writing.
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. They will spend 30 minutes only on the given prompt. They 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.
Partner Journey through the Chakras - An Exploration of Energetic Boundaries and Exchange
With a partner, participants will be guided in approaching the boundaries and energy exchange of the chakras through sensory stimulation, movement, rhythm, breath work, meditation and spatial exploration.
Dress comfortably, bring a yoga mat, water, and a friend. You may also want to bring a pen and a journal.
How to write? What if I’ve never written before?
No worries! The writing prompts and movement are geared to stimulate the chakra we are focusing on. I will ask you to write for a specific period of time. During the writing period, the only requirement of you is to write until time is up.
There is no wrong way to do this. You may write any way you like. Don’t worry about grammar, spelling, or punctuation. They do not matter here. I always go back to what my first creative writing teacher Suzanne McConnell (and many teachers after her)* taught me—there is only one rule, keep your hand(s) moving. If you feel stuck, keep writing anyway. Try going back to the prompt and write it out until other words arise, then write those—or, repeat the last word you wrote again and again until new words appear—or, write, “I am stuck,” or “I can’t think of anything,” as long as you keep your hand moving. Writing is physical, the words will move through your body and come out of your hand—just keep it moving.
You don’t have to share your work with anyone, but if you are “dying” to tell a story and are afraid, chances are there is a part of you that is suffering for not letting it out.
Are you ready to let go of your intellectual understanding of what is “socially acceptable writing” and allow yourself to really say what you need to say?
Are you ready to let writing move through your body, into your energetic being, and trust what it’s saying to you?
Are you ready to release memories (or make up new ones), blocks, and sticky spots?
Are you ready for non-judgmental feedback, compassionate communication, and encouragement?
If you said “yes” to any of the questions above, then you are ready to participate in Writing the Energetic Body.
