Write Your Way Home –Women’s Summer Series

Creative writing as an awakening path

Four Thursdays--July 20, July 27, Aug 3, Aug 10

Online via Zoom: 10 am-11:30 am PT

Ignite your storytelling, build creative momentum, connect with a writing sangha, and write your way into the heart of your life in this four-session series. We’ll explore  different dimensions of writing as a path to waking up, including themes like “body stories,” “roots and wings,” “the power of place,” and “hearts breaking open.” Journaling prompts help keep you inspired to write between sessions. Each session includes meditation practices that ground you in your wise heart, energy practices that clear the pathways of creativity, writing prompts that evoke the free flow of imagination and memory, and sharing your work in small groups without judgment or critique. All those who identify as women are welcome.

Series cost: $80

Every Write Your Way Home course includes:

* mindful movement practice—accessible to all bodies—with an emphasis on increasing sensitivity, developing inner listening and intuition, and unclogging the body’s centers and pathways of creative energy.  

*guided meditation to settle the mind, open the heart, and connect you with your true nature

*writing prompts and exercises that awaken imagery and story

* inspirational poems and quotes from women writers

*practical teachings to make your writing more vivid and powerful

*sharing your writing in small groups of women without judgment or critique

* down time between online sessions for rest, renewal, and optional journaling/meditation
