Somatic Writing with Cheryl Pallant

September 18 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm CDT

$45.00

What is your body ready to tell you? 

Join us for a Workshop on Writing the Body’s Wisdom
with Cheryl Pallant

Join us for a special morning workshop with author, poet, dancer, and healer, Cheryl Pallant. Drawing upon the wisdom shared in her latest book: Writing and the Body in Motion: Awakening Voice through Somatic Practice, Cheryl will invite us into a contemplative morning of discovery.

Writing From the Body relies on our physical self to generate writing, heightened sensory awareness, insight, and contemplative movement that arises from metaphor, sound, subtle energy, improvisation, and mindfulness. The process bypasses limiting cognitive approaches that lock us into old patterns and instead taps into primordial energy, a free flow of creativity, and renewal. 

“Let your body call you back into yourself, into your most deeply embodied self. Land, dive, soar. Find the crumbs that lead back home.” ― Cheryl Pallant, Contact Improvisation: An Introduction to a Vitalizing Dance Form

Participants open to creative expression, spiritual connection, and healing using somatic techniques. Where attention goes, the body follows. When the body softens, the mind comes alive. This aliveness leads to a strengthened connection to the core of being and to a universal consciousness.

Note: no experience with journaling, movement practices, or meditation is required. Just come with an open mind.

Join us for this inspiring morning workshop. Your body, mind, and spirit will thank you in ways beyond your imagining!

“The combination of moving and writing brings the energy of mind into coherence with the energy of the body. The power of this synergy surpasses the output of material created from a single discipline.” –Cheryl Pallant
