Workshop With Donna Hilbert

Writing from the Body: The Rapture of Being Alive

February 2, 2019 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

In The Power of Myth Joseph Campbell says, "People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive…"

In Writing from the Body, we will explore ways for our poems to flow from our bodies as well as from our busy intellects. The only level of fitness needed for this workshop is the ability to sit in a chair and hold a pen in your hand. My friend and colleague, Erin Haffner, will co-lead the day, bringing 20 years of training and experience teaching movement and working with people at the roots of their energetic systems.
