CREATIVE WRITING AS YOGA Workshop
with Adrienne Jamiel and Nina Robertson
The yoga of writing is a process of revealing the truth in whatever form it wants to take – poetic, autobiographical, fictional or journal. Beginning and experienced writers alike will find a supportive, encouraging environment in which to write from the deepest self. Using the Amherst Writers and Artists Method, we write in response to prompts that are offered or we write by responding to whatever moves us.
We then have the opportunity to read our work aloud and to receive positive feedback from the group about what is already strong and memorable in the writing. There is never any pressure or expectation to read your work out loud. Yoga poses and Yoga Nidra Meditation are used to tame the inner critic and to open the mind to a place of receptivity.
This workshop is suitable for all, no prior writing or yoga experience is necessary.
