Women's Writing Circle
Next Session begins April 27th!
In the heart of every woman, is a desire to give voice to her inner creative wild. Join us on a 12-Week online writing journey.
When a woman speaks her truth, fires up her intention and feeling, staying tight with the instinctive nature, she is singing, she is living in the wild breath-stream of the soul.
~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Your inner wild woman holds the key to your creativity.
I've created this writing experience for women to sit together in circle and dive deep into their creative process. Every woman has a story to tell and, oftentimes, our most authentic narratives get silenced in service of our full, domesticated lives.
This is an opportunity to pause within the action, to reclaim your untamed voice and speak truth to what wants freedom of expression. Our work together is based on the evocative writing of author Judy Reeves, in her beautiful book Wild Women, Wild Voices. This journey will engage, inspire, nourish, and activate each woman, so she can access the parts of herself longing to be touched.
While "writers" are certainly invited here, this is a space for all women who want to explore their inner mysteries and harness the power of their femininity. The only requirement is a desire to write stories from your authentic wild and to commitment equally to both yourself and our sister circle.
"I remember how, again and again, we sat in the holy silence that descends when writing touches that place deep inside and marks us forever" -Judy Reeves
This 12-week circle is designed so participants are able to direct their own level of involvement. To create a container of support, all women are asked to commit to and prioritize our weekly 2-hour sessions. These will include grounding nature-based meditations, creative journaling prompts, and optional community sharing. For those who want to dive deeper, I will deliver journaling prompts throughout the week and encourage daily "morning pages", 10-15 minutes of writing each morning, at the start of the day. There will also be an optional private Facebook group where you can share your work, ask questions, and get to know the other women more intimately.
At the close of our circle, women are invited to submit 1-2 pieces of writing that they've created during our time together, to be added to a Chapbook~a small publication that includes a collection of our group writings. Each writer, whether submitting or not (always optional), will receive a copy, as a momento from our journey.
