February 2014 Workshops:
February 11 - March 11: At Home in Our Bodies: a five-session poetry workshop for
women - Taught by Alexa Mergen, firstname.lastname@example.org
How can we become better acquainted with our physical selves as we access creative potential? In five class meetings, we will practice guided breathing and meditation, and read and write poetry with bodily awareness, with special attention to the heart's central role. We'll read work by American poets May Swenson, Emily Dickinson, Joy Harjo, Anne Bradstreet, M.C. Richards and more. You'll receive five prompts (one before our first class meeting) and comments from me and fellow students on each of the five poems you submit. No experience with meditation or breath work necessary; all bodies welcome
Who: limited to five brave women (sorry, fellas)
When: Tuesday mornings from 10:30 - noon, February 11 - March 11
Where: my house, Elmhurst
Fee: $110 until January 31; $125 after
Hope you can join us. If you'd like me to offer this same class another time (evening or weekend), please let me know.
