Rhythmic words—the beat of charms and spells— offer an ancient and powerful path for uniting body and spirit, idea and intuition, humanity and nature, the hemispheres of the brain. Like a yoga class for the mind, this workshop uses a series of language-postures to access and transform the energy of mind, body, heart, will, and spirit. Each rhythm will be introduced with drumming, chanting, and finally Annie’s guidance through a process of rhythmical journaling.
Through supportive discussion, you will learn how the mirror of your own rhythmic language reveals the dynamics shaping your life. Annie will also work with each participant on an individual rhythmic “prescription” to help you balance and integrate the healing spiral of words. Finally, you will have the opportunity to craft a work of visual art, a talisman of your most powerful words, to bring the healing home. No previous writing experience is necessary.
Comments From Healing Spiral of Words 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.”
"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.”
