Writing light can mean receiving illumination for your work, it can also mean finding ease and flow with your words. In this creative writing workshop, both of those interpretations are true and quite possibly, there are even more layers of meaning for the experience that awaits you.
Last Fall, poet and children’s book author, Ruth Forman came to Squam as our Maker in Residence. The setting provided an ideal opportunity to sink into creative space and she shared with us that at Squam “everything feels a bit magical. Like there’s a little magic in the wood and the water.”
We are delighted that she wanted to come back and create an offering for you that taps into the well-honed method she has created for herself that allows writing to roll forward from a practice of self-nurturance.
In this class, you will be led through exercises that weave writing with movement. Using a combination of qi gong movements, you will learn how to open up — or release stuck energy from — the energy highways (meridians) of the body. This practice you will help you deepen the direct connection between the energetic flow that travels through your physical self with the output of your words and writing.
Though we will all be moving in unison, the result will be that each of our unique voices is strengthened and our individual genius will emerge into the vibrant, safe space we have created together. Each of us will connect with our own focused, personal power through writing, then have the opportunity to share with each other.
Ruth’s experience with this approach and
her guidance into that sacred energy field
within us allows for a connection
with the powerful river of our stories.
