Winter Blooms Writing the Body, Dancing the Soul Workshops

Writing the Body, Dancing the Soul workshops combine three modalities to deepen participants’ sense of congruence, purpose, and inner peace: 

  • Journal writing invites participants to articulate those stories held by our viscera, our muscles, our bones, and our cells;
  • Circle dancing, one of the most ancient forms of non-verbal human expression, invites participants to embody through movement the spiritual connections we feel to self, other, and the larger world; and,
  • EFT releases any fear, negative self talk, resentment, and/or anger that may be limiting our abilities to be fully present in our lives. 

 I have been nourishing my personal healing journey with journaling for more than forty years and with circle dancing for more than twenty. When I first developed the Writing the Body, Dancing the Soul workshops for girls and women, I was at the beginning of my journey with EFT as a means of improving my daily quality of life. Now, more than ten years of daily EFT study and practice later, I offer girls and women the unique combination of EFT, journaling, and dancing to create the sacred space to safely release early and recent emotional injuries and the toxic messages reinforced by patriarchal culture; in doing this creative healing work, we reaffirm and strengthen our connections to Self and to Source. 

This workshop is available to existing groups of people who meet regularly, including: 

  • intergenerational family groups of women and girls;
  • physical and emotional support groups such as breast cancer survivors;
  • women's writing groups;
  • women's spiritual groups;
  • women's book groups; and,
  • women's eco-spirituality groups. 

 Writing the Body, Dancing the Soul Workshops are introduced in a day event; should the group decided to continue this work, I have created a weekend format, with Friday evening providing a gentle introduction to all three practices and the multiple Saturday and Sunday sessions deepening our experiences of all three.
