Writing-to-Wholeness Workshop

with Julie Edge and Lisa Ash Drackert

Sundays September 23, October 7, October 21, 2018

4:00- 5:30 pm @ Westport Yoga KC

Learn how to build and sustain a daily writing meditation practice in this exclusive 6-week course.

The Writing-to-Wholeness Workshop includes:

  • 6 weeks of daily writing prompts delivered via text

  • 3 in-person class sessions held at Westport Yoga KC

  • a custom tailored journal

  • weekly e-mails with writing tips and encouragement to support your practice

  • complimentary tea and water during in-person meeting sessions

  • complimentary attendance of the Yin Yoga class immediately following in-person gatherings

  • 10% off all retail purchases at Westport Yoga KC during the duration of your course

Writing meditation is a daily practice blending the art of writing with spiritual development. Similar to journaling, writing meditation practice provides a safe place for emotional release and of ‘letting go’ of thoughts. However, different than journaling, writing meditation is not meant to capture the day’s activities or to solve a specific problem. It’s a free writing method that offers a way to observe thoughts and emotion in a judgement-free zone.
