BRINGING YOUR WHOLE SELF
TO THE PAGE
with Nina Alvarez
First, we start with joy.
Deliciousness and joy.
We start with cherishing from the end.
We start with feeling from the end.
We'll explore what you want most as a writer. What kinds of experiences? Focus on what that would feel like in your body and your emotions. Your mind might start to put up blocks, or create negative scenarios, but keep bringing it back to the feeling that you are longing for. That feeling, for example, of completion, full expression, awe, glory, excitement, soulful expression.
Hold that wonderful feeling you have been looking for. Hold it for 10 minutes. Allow yourself to cherish and treasure this feeling.
This is the feeling tone, the vibration you want to experience. By experiencing it now, before its outside conditions are met, you set your subconscious, your conscious, and the whole world up to conspire to bring you those conditions. And in the meantime, you begin to glow. (Many thanks to Martha Beck's STEERING BY STARLIGHT.)
With this vibrational intention set, we turn our gaze to the subject/image/idea/writing project closest to our heart.
Here I begin to guide you through a discussion exploring a series of questions:
We will open up sacred space, center, align, and open up to the divine (however you experience that personally). Then we'll move into a space of deep listening, silence, and have personal writing time to explore these techniques.
There will be time to share what comes up, to work through the questions, what am I holding back, and to create a plan to re-create these conditions whenever you are writing.
I want you to come, try it out, and give me feedback. The group workshop is completely free if you can't afford the $25 love offering.
Personalized workshops available on sliding scale.
