Writing from the Body

We will practice mindfulness to descend into the body and write from a deep and connected place. Through play, enticing prompts and visual imagery we will discover new doorways into imagination and memory. These techniques enable us to break through creative blocks, bypass the inner critic and retrieve stories held in the body. Each session ends with an opportunity to share your writing or thoughts in the supportive environment of a small group. To register contact spaces2b@gmail.com
