The Feldenkrais Creativity Workshop for Writers TOPIC #1: Process

  • Your LIfe Matters - Learning Resources 235 W. Main St. Jacksonville OR 97530 United States (map)

Discover your optimal process for entering into the mind of your story.  To ready yourself, read “The Craft of Writing, by William Sloane in advance. Experimenting with your process is a way to open yourself up to new possibilities," writes Grant Faulkner of NaNoWriMo. If writing is about generating the atmosphere of a specific time and place, how enter the atmosphere of YOUR story? In this workshop, first engage in a short movement lesson that frees you of tension, which blocks creativity, and then move into clarity about what works for YOU in your writing. For every writer this is different. In this workshop, we focus on the aspect of craft that allows you to intentionally enter into the process of writing YOUR story until the momentum it gains cannot be ignored. Discover new resources to keep your writing active and vibrant long after the ink on the page of this moment has dried…

Calm the body, and you free the mind. Learn how to access a deeper place to write from while at the same time addressing aspects of the Craft of Writing Fiction.

For novelists, short story writers, or anyone interested in jump starting their creative juices. "Experimenting with your process is a way to open yourself up to new possibilities," writes Grant Faulkner of NaNoWriMo, the month-long marathon of writing a novel in one go. 

The medium for this transformative process that allows you to access your own creativity is the FELDENKRAIS© Method, which teaches you to release your tension in readiness for the creative process.
