with Jennifer Lang
Thursday, June 13, 2019, 10:30 – 14:30
We all have stories to tell. For some of us, they lie buried, deep inside, occasionally rising up and taking us by surprise. In this workshop, we will plumb our bodies and our minds through movement and meditation to find our stories and begin to write them. We’ll explore how the practice of yoga enriches the art of writing. As Susanna Harwood Rubin said, “Writing can be a purging, a meditation, a creative investigation in the same way that a yoga practice can burn off what isn’t serving us, draw us into contemplation, or ignite our creativity. The process can feel hesitant or fluid, peaceful or driven, playful or gut wrenching.”
Join writer and yoga instructor, Jennifer Lang, for an inspiring day of play and work. Through a thoughtful mix of breathing, meditation, and movement accessible to everyone, writing exercises, group sharing and discussion, we will dive into our minds and generate new work.
Details: advance payment required of 390nis (drinks and kosher vegetarian lunch included); non-refundable if you cancel within one week of the workshop and your place cannot be filled.
