"Quiet the mind, and the soul will speak."
~Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati
Summer. No matter your experience with this time of the year, thinking about it invariably evokes images of romantic picnics and a refreshing dip in the lake, the excitement of camping and promise of leisurely sunset strolls, Sunday afternoon barbecues and spontaneous gatherings with those we love. When we stay close to the changes within us with the new cycle, we can more fully embody the possibilities of the seasonal shift. Coming together with a community of kindreds at this time in the spirit of creative exploration offers an opportunity to tune into the soul’s longing for this next turn and to prepare your response to it – what is available to us when we give the soul space to inform this next season of growth? Together, we will create a rich, welcoming space where all of who you are and who you are becoming belongs.
What the world needs now is more of us taking deep, tender loving care of ourselves every day, and bringing that transformational healing energy of wellness and love into the world. Joining together in creative exploration with the intention of healing aspects of our experience that are available to be explored is a way to create and share the energy of belonging that becomes an offering to the Earth and all of her inhabitants.
Creative process, not product
Healing lies within the space of self-expression; knowledge of self within the curiosity to engage. A writing group of this sort is not about product, but about the process of coming together to willingly explore our inner landscape. No writing experience is necessary -- just a willingness to engage and explore your own experience.
We will meet on Tuesdays from June 7-July 5, 2022 from 7:00pm-9:00pm (central time) via Zoom. Our time together will consist of a reading to center us on the topic of the evening, a grounding meditation, writing prompts for exploration, and time to share discoveries or insights with the group, if you so choose. For our gatherings, bring a notebook or journal, something that feels fun to write with, and a cup of something delicious to sip on.
The cost for our creative exploration together is $88 (USD) payable via Venmo (@Christy-Marek-1) or PayPal (@tendinglife). If you are interested in participating but don't use Venmo or PayPal, please let me know and we can make other arrangements. The fee covers all five weeks; however, you are free to come as you are able. Our Zoom link will be provided upon paid registration.
