Registration is open for the week-long writing and yoga intensive, March 31-April 7, 2013, a retreat for writers with manuscripts-in-progress. Get yourself out of the northern springtime chill and immerse yourself in your project — and in yoga — while steeped in the lush natural beauty and warm coastal calm of southern Brazil.
Writing and Yoga are soul mates. Yoga reveals insights; Writing is the recorder. Yoga balances the rhythms of breath; Writing surfs breath through oceans of language. Yoga taps the unconscious mind; Writing transcribes the wisdom of the unconscious. Writing requires work; Yoga is the assistant. Writing is an offering to the world; Yoga eases the offering’s sacrifice. Writing is a solo act; Yoga provides community.
Beneath and in the energy of the Sun and Blue Moon, writers/yoginis came together at Bellingham Bay, on September 1, 2012. We experimented with yoga mudras, postures, and mantra to assist in our creative endeavours; with sparked vitality we began our fall writing season.
