Are you feeling disconnected? Uninspired? Blocked?
When we feel this way, it is often because we are in our heads, distracted and not present for our lives as they are happening. Things seem random or boring. We feel lost. We lack a sense of purpose or meaning.
We are living disembodied lives. Out of touch with who we are and our creativity.
We busy ourselves with answering emails, shuffling between meetings, doom-scrolling the Internet, listening to podcasts, or binging on streaming services. Our minds are inundated with noise.
When we do get a moment to think, we are anticipating what will happen next or ruminating about what happened in the past.
I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.Mark Twain
Reconnect with your body
In this two-hour mindful writing workshop, we will come into the present by coming into our bodies. Too often, we don’t notice our bodies until something goes wrong. (And sometimes, things go wrong because of our bodies are constantly responding to our anxiety and ruminating.) Then, we think of our bodies of something we drag around with us.
Or we’re focused on how our bodies look. They become a project we must work on.
Reconnect with your creativity
Our bodies are more than movable containers for our brains. They are how we experience life. They are intelligent and intuitive.
Our bodies are always in the present and that is where our creativity lives. When we’re in our heads, we can get stuck in the same-old-same-old and don’t see what is happening in front of us. We don’t see the possibilities.
Reconnect with your body and the stories it has to tell through meditation and writing exercises. Share your experiences and words in a safe, fun, and supportive environment. We will be writing by hand (if possible), so please remember to bring pen and paper.
No prior writing or meditation experience is required.
