May 19, Sat 9-12  New! Online Contemplative Writers Retreats
Move Write Share $45 per session/or whatever you can pay.

Come if you do your best writing with others, if you need help getting going, or if you wonder if writing could be a spiritual path for you.

Receive gently structured support to move your wisdom. questions, and inspiration from body to page.  We begin with a body warm up and brief check in about life and our writing process. There are movement breaks, gentle coaching, and a period to share writing at the end.

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 organize and share my life experience, so much of which is 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 many sacred dancers to put 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.

Words are beloved dancers in my life.
