Workshop: Energizing our Lives and our Language
All living things shimmer with energy – and so, too, should our writing. From a single cell seen in a microscope to a forested hillside rippling with wind and sunlight there is a natural pulsation at work. In this workshop, participants learn to match their writing to the natural pulse of our bodies and the earth. Beautiful language organically arises once we become aware of how our attention moves inward and outward, much like our breath.
For the workshop, meet at the flagpole in front of the Craig Thomas Discovery Center in Grand Teton National Park at 9:00 am. From there we will go to a good place to write and talk together. Bring paper and pen, appropriate outdoor clothing for variable weather conditions and, if you like, water and something to sit on. The workshop ends at noon. Hope to see you there.
