December 2013 Workshops:
Saturday, December 14: Writing from the Heart: a daylong retreat for getting in touch with your Creative Core. For both new and experienced writers of all mediums (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, journaling, etc..), Writing from the Heart affirms that everyone has a place of vivacity and creative genius within them capable of producing moving and meaningful art. In a safe and supportive setting we will move to a place of depth in order to increase the clarity of our writing and open the possibility of revelation and transformation within ourselves. The workshop will be at 2325 J Street, Sacramento. Workshops include: Writing from Your Creative Core; Tapping into Mythology to Center your Story; Using Music and Movement to Write from a Place of Depth; Seeking Out the Shadows in Ourselves and Our Writing.
