Healing Rhythms of Words Workshops and Retreats
Annie's Healing Rhythms of Words workshops and retreats bring participants on a unique journey of radical self-expression and self-exploration, as we tap into patterned language’s magical capacity to connect body to soul, idea to intuition, and the two hemispheres of your brain.
Fusing Annie's lifelong experience as one of the foremost practitioners of poetic rhythm in the U.S. with her deep understanding of healing and liberating psychological and spiritual practices, Healing Rhythms of Words brings writers and non-writers alike through a spiral of five energy frequencies to connect and integrate the power of all five directions. Through drumming, chanting, art, and yoga or other movement, you will explore your inner rhythmic landscapes and discover talismans of language that will transform you in mind, body, heart, will, and spirit.
By the end of the workshop, you will have acquired a versatile set of tools to heal and process any issue you may encounter going forward. You will also have the opportunity to create a visual embodiment of your experience, a Spiral Talisman featuring your own words to take home. No previous writing experience is necessary.
Comments From Participants:
“The workshop was enriching and magical! It was amazing to experience how the rhythms spoke to different parts of our healing processes. What was additionally awesome is that I went to the workshop with an acute backache I had been suffering from and when I left the workshop, my backache was no longer.”
“It was really incredible. I don’t remember how long it’s been since I cried when reading my words aloud.”
"Your workshop was magical . . . I believe I can use the structures you gave us today to continue to move through my healing process (tears in my eyes....) I feel I've already made some big breakthroughs during today's workshop!”
“Annie is the teacher that many of us yearn for, and some are lucky enough to work with. There is such a need for her earth and heart based teachings.”
