About the event

Join us for a full day of writing and mind-body exercises that will help you to dissolve blocks and connect/reconnect with your deeper creative self. Artists, writers, and businesspeople alike will find benefits from refining vision, reawakening creative reserves, and refocusing energy.

This mind-body workshop will focus on how to establish a deeper purpose and reconnect with our full creative potential. We will practice yoga, qigong, breathwork, and writing/personal empowerment exercises that will imbue your life with creativity and flow.

Some yoga or meditation experience is a plus, but all levels are welcome. This will be a safe/brave place to explore and create. Participants are asked to bring a fresh journal and a pen or pencil. Ideally, no electronics are permitted.
