Upcoming Workshops Scheduled in the Treehouse
January 14, 2011
Common Roots Cafe, Minneapolis
Immersed in post-holiday recuperation, a nasty upper-respiratory virus, fluid on my middle ear which renders me half-deaf, applying for a fellowship that will launch me into my higher aspirations as a teacher and writer, and attending to the precarious and shifting dance of balance, I have been away from this blog (I still hate the word “blog”). But through it all, I have continued to write as a way to keep myself centered and inspired. Though I’ve been at this for almost 20 years, I am still amazed at how light and free I feel after sitting down with myself and simply writing my thoughts and feelings for 20 (or so) minutes.
If I don’t write to empty my mind, I go mad. ~Lord Byron
And because I am so damn grateful for this simple and profound healing practice, I have finally scheduled a few workshops in the coming months so I can share this beautiful and endangered art of writing on paper.
Any time is a wonderful time to begin a writing practice. If you need a little guidance and inspiration, check out The Art of Life: Journaling as a Wellness Practice on either Tuesday, March 1st or Wednesday, April 6th.
This quiet time of the year, when we reflect on our lives and create intentions for the year to come, is a great time to visualize our dreams and aspiration on the road to making them real. You will love the workshop “Dreamkeepers: Writing and the Art of Creative Visualization” on Wednesday, March 16th or Tuesday, May 3.
And back by popular demand (and with a new title), you can begin a journal for your child or children in the workshop, “The History of Us” (formerly “A Different Kind of Baby Book”) on Tuesday, March 22.
All courses are scheduled in the beautiful Zen Adventure Treehouse from 7:00-9:30 pm. All of these workshops will lift you on the winds of inspiration, and into your life’s journey.
I hope to see you in the coming months. If not, I will continue to leave you with bits of writing inspiration every Friday, so please visit my blog and feel free to send me a message about your own writing practice and experiences.
Love and peace,
