Description of my Class
Flagstaff Yoga Festival
Friday July 30th, 2010
Writing the Energetic Body
This seminar will use the major chakra system as the "backbone" for self-exploration through journaling. Creative visualization, gentle movement, sound, sensory stimulation, and writing prompts designed to wake up specific chakras will inspire a series of timed writings. Journaling is a form of unfolding -- participants will benefit from a deeper sense of self-awareness, relaxation and compassion.
Writing the Energetic Body will be divided into two workshops*. This exploration is a series of two, two-hour sessions, with each devoted to four chakras. We will begin by focusing on the first three, or "earthly" chakras, and finish with the heart chakra. The next half will begin by focusing on the “upper” heart chakra (the bridge between body and spirit) followed by the higher, or "ethereal" chakras.
It is not necessary to sign up for both workshops. Attendees will receive a final relaxation meditation and a chakra balancing treatment at the end of each session.
No writing workshop experience required.
Materials: Favorite pen, a notebook or journal, water, a yoga mat, and comfortable clothing.
*9:00 to 11:00 pm ~ Part 1: We will explore issues of survival and “the tribe”; pleasure, sexuality and emotions; our sense of purpose and personal power; and compassion and self-acceptance.
*3:30 to 5:30 pm ~ Part 2: We will open to love; clear communication and creativity; intuition and imagination; and understanding and spiritual connection.
