Do you have a consistent practice for your writing? When you get stuck, do you have a reliable way of getting back into motion? Do you know where to put all the words in your heart, how to aim them out in ways that have impact? Whether you define yourself as a writer or one who (also) writes, this workshop focuses on beginner’s mind and bringing your whole self into writing.

Writing in the Body uses our process of align | partner | create to aim your words out into the world in ways that land. Through guided writing and physical exercises, this workshop focuses on creating a holistic & sustainable practice.

In this workshop you will:

  • Aim your writing in ways that connect you with your audience
  • Learn simple physical awareness techniques that can help re-orient and balance you throughout the day
  • Experience how physical alignment affects the process & content of your writing
  • Explore ways to focus & concentrate, so you can develop your own sustainable practice
  • Adapt your writing for various templates & audiences, in ways that do not compromise your voice
