Moving Words – 10/10
Movement, Meditation and Expression, it’s that simple.
When we are relaxed and as stress free as possible, our ability to live creatively, inspired and curious, grows immensely. There is solid science behind the realization that our ability to release stress significantly increases our health and allows our brains to access more information. Qigong movements have information engrained within them that allows us to clear stress, on a cellular level, from our bodies. As we engage the parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest), we are open to new ideas, flashes of inspiration, messages from “out there”. This class is focused on developing and growing the abilities of relaxation and listening, for inspiration.
Here’s what we’ll do:
Qigong – Easy movements to get the blood flowing. Blood flow to the brain means more creative juice!
Meditation – We will use Zen koan’s, the I-Ching, and the Tao Te Ching along with other texts inspired by the Chinese classics to ground our efforts and seed our imaginations.
Writing – We can use what is revealed in our meditations as a jumping off point for the timed, free writing session. Afterward, there will be time to share and offer supportive feedback to each other. We’ll be using the Amherst Writers and Artists method, whose philosophy is simply: “Every person is a writer, and every writer deserves a safe environment in which to experiment.”
Each class is $5-$10 sliding scale.
