Stone and Flesh: The Yoga of Lucid Writing
August 7 – 10; From Thursday, Aug. 7 at 7 p.m. to Sunday, Aug. 10 at 1 p.m.
Being awake to “the dialogue of stone and flesh” can lead to lucid writing, a way of writing full of surprise, insight, and a little challenge. Through lucid writing, we attempt to know through our senses what is real without the smudge of preconceptions and judgments. Here, each morning will include a half hour of lucid yoga, appropriate for anybody (& any ‘body’) plus a two-hour-or-so session that will blend yoga tools with writing experiences. Each afternoon will include a two-hour Soul of Craft workshop in which we will discuss facets of craft and share our writings in a safe, honest environment.
