Writing the Imaginal
Writing is an intellectual art form and over-intellectualization can often lead to such struggles as writer’s block or writing that feels unnatural and overwrought. In this class we will leave our egos at the door and call on the subconscious, the emotional body and energetic space to generate fresh writing and revelations. Students will be guided in relaxed theta states using creative visualization. From this place, we will draw on divination, dreams, imagery and archetypes to explore deeper realms of creativity. We will also discuss ways in which rituals can be used to enhance our writing practice and explore physical embodiment methods that will add more depth to our language. Students will depart class with new writing, inspiration and techniques. This workshop is for writers of all genres and at all levels.
