Are you a kitchen-table poet? A novelist with professional aspirations? Does writing feel like flying… or like stacking heavy stones? Beginner or experienced, we all wish to write effectively, with words that carry forth our personal truth in an authentic voice. Guided by the leader's belief that art is the Felt Sense made public, this workshop will give participants an opportunity to experience how Focusing can clear a path that leads from the inside out, from our felt knowing to the page. Together we will practice tapping this wisdom by writing to unique prompts (some serious, some not-so-much) to create and share fresh pieces in a spirit of non-judgmental support.
