New! Online Contemplative Writers Retreats: Move Write Share 

Blessings as you transition to Spring Body Wisdom for those in the northern hemishpere….

Need a little retreat next week?

April 4, Wed 9-12 or May 19, Sat 9-12
on zoom…..

Get a bit of quiet, interplayful connection. Come…
if you have something you are already writing or need help getting going, 
if you wonder if writing could be a spiritual path for you, 
even if grammar or punctuation befuddles you,
or you sense that body and language need to dance in you.

We’ll begin with a body warm up and brief check in about life and our writing process.  There will be movement breaks, gentle coaching, and a period to share writing or notice at the end.

Just $45 per session or whatever you can pay… 
RSVP about either date and I’ll give you the link and sign you up.

 

My writing practice: Like many things I’ve learned by doing it and by reading a ton. I write everyday in a very disorganized way. Blogging keeps me connected. I love to write letters, emails, and to correspond. Writing helps me understand and share my life experience, especially with so much of it wrapped up with theology, art and yes, mystical weirdness.

About me as a published writer:  In Latin publicare means to ‘make public. My first pieces were published in the 80’s with The Sharing Company through my mentor, Doug Adams. He encouraged some of us sacred dancers to move our thoughts about dance to paper in short essays. We could finally read and learn from each other.

As body intellectuals and teachers Phil Porter and I self publish. In addition, Move: What the Body Wants is published by Woodlake Press and Dance: A Sacred Art is published by Turner Publishing. I had an agent for my memoir, Chasing the Dance of Life. No one took it until John Mabry offered to publish it at Apocryphile Press.  He uses print on demand.I’ve made little money on these artifacts. To do so I’d have to carry them around and show them off like unruly children. Even though they are on their own, I hear that they are good medicine for people. They certainly have been good for me.
