Writing from the Chakras Workshops offer artists and other creatives a wonderful, experiential way to explore the many kinds of energy that combine to create not only our bodies, but our lives, and the inter-connectedness of our lives with other living beings. Participants are introduced to the chakra system, understood for thousands of years in Indian culture, and through the study of practices like yoga. They are led gently through the understanding of what each chakra energy center holds, how to know if there is blockage or over-activity in each center, and how to balance each chakra. The exploration also includes guided creative work that allows each participant to discover the stories, the images, the experiences held in each area of your physical body. By learning the language of the chakras, we not only learn how to address issues of healing, but how to “listen” to those stories, and to create from that place of wisdom. No former experience is required for any of the work we do, all of which is quite gentle.
Writing From the Chakras Workshops can be offered in a variety of ways. As a week-long workshop, participants meet once a day for a 3-4 hour session, then spend time privately working on the exercises, practices and writing activities. As a weekend intensive workshop, participants meet from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon, in workshops that include exercise, practice and writing activities. Between the meetings, participants work on their exercises, practices and writing activities.
Both the week-long and weekend programs culminate in a wrap up of the work, with sharing of the creative work and the experiential journey.
The program can also be designed for private tutoring or coaching.
It’s always possible to tailor-make the program for private groups, including special needs populations. To discuss bringing the program to your group, or for details on costs regarding our scheduled workshops, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
