Sunday, November 19th, 2017 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm Eastern Time: Writing from Experience: 
Using Focusing to Illuminate Stories from Your Life

Sunday, November 19th, 2017 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm Eastern Time –An Online Workshop facilitated by Julian Miller and David Smith

Writing and Focusing are both creative processes –– which can move us toward greater awareness, self-appreciation, compassion, and gratitude. In this workshop, we will discover some evocative ways to nourish and animate our writing through Focusing. In the first part of the workshop, David Smith will lead us through some ways to play with the felt sense, and transform the felt sense into a piece of writing that feels alive and evocative. In the second part of the workshop, we will work from the perspective of seeing ourselves as a collection of stories. Julian Miller will help us transform one of our stories into a felt sense of lived experience, and produce a second short piece of written material. In sharing these stories we will no doubt move, delight, connect to, and inspire each other. As an interactive, experiential workshop, this online class will not be recorded.  There will be pair work between participants and a limit of 20 registrants.
