About the event
Life throws us curveballs, often when we’re least expecting it. Our identity is suddenly called into question via new information. A truth is unearthed from a series of lies. The body is injured or altered by illness, accident, or other violence. We lose someone or something that defined us. All of these are ways in which we can find ourselves suddenly lost and doubting our ability to tell up from down. Are we doing the right thing? Going the right way?
We’ll use writing and gentle movement as tools to help us reconnect to our unmoored inner truth. Guided by writer and trauma-informed meditation and yoga teacher Jennifer New, come prepared to explore feeling lost versus exploring, stuck in confusion versus open to possibility. Movement will help us feel into our bodies, which are the true the site of knowing - not that head of ours! We’ll learn how to locate difficult or puzzling emotions in the body. Via writing and guided meditations, we’ll use memory and our senses to recall ways we’ve found clarity and inner-trust in the past.
Our in-person time together includes:
- Stretching and other gentle movement exercises
- Time to respond to writing prompts
- Safe space for sharing thoughts and experiences that arise from the writing
- Guided meditations for greater peace and ease
You’ll also receive:
- Two audio recordings of guided meditations
- Two short video recordings of ways to use movement to connect to your body’s wisdom
- A collection of poems and short writings along with writing prompts to continue your exploration.
