A workshop to explore how morning pages or a daily journaling practice can help unblock your writing or creative projects.
About this event
The Morning Pages, which was made popular by Julia Cameron in her groundbreaking book, The Artist's Way, are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning. It is a powerful tool for creative break throughs and has been practiced by artists, musicians, writers, etc. for years.
Although it is considered a foundation for creative recovery, many people avoid this kind of practice becaue they are not clear how it can help identify the blocks that keep them from moving forward with their creative projects.
This workshop will cover
The benefits of a daily journaling or morning pages practice to unblock creativity;
Some tips and strategies on how to start or maintain your own practice, and
How to use it to identify what blocks you creatively.
There will be a writing exercise as part of the workshop. A journal or paper and something to write with is required.
A guided Yoga Nidra practice for artists and creatives energized by the March New Moon to set creative intentions for the next 30 days.
"Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. While the practitioner rests comfortably in savasana, this systematic meditation takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness. " -Yoga Internationa
Join us for an inspiring evening of creative alignment and connection fueled by the New Moon energy.
The new moon is a wonderful time to set intentions and launch new creative projects. New moons happen once a month and signify the beginning of a new cycle, which many think as "a cosmic reset." Connecting to these lunar energies can provide grounding and a sense of direction.
Our agenda includes a brief discusson about New Moon energy and how it allows us to move forward with our creative intentions. We will then focus on self-reflecting questions to help us determine what habits, blocks, or other barriers to our creativity that we will leave behind. You will set intentions for your creative practice and create affirmations that you can use for the next 30 days. The session will end with a guided yoga nidra practice to seal our intentions.
In addition to a host of wellness benefits, there is strong evidence suggesting Yoga Nidra is incredibly powerful at unlocking creativity.
