A TRANSFORMATIONAL PATH THROUGH RHYTHMIC LANGUAGE
Rhythmical language offers a sure and ancient path for uniting body and spirit, idea and intuition. Like a yoga class for the mind, the Healing Rhythms of Words workshop uses a series of language-postures to access and transform the energy of mind, body, heart, will, and spirit.
You don’t need to be a writer, artist, yogi or seeker to unlock your power of self-realization, self-awareness, and self-empowerment with the secrets of rhythm (though all of these kinds of people have benefitted from Healing Rhythms of Words Workshops). All you need is an open heart and a notebook. No writing experience is necessary.
Some participants use the workshop to work on processing and resolving a particular problem or issue; others come just to learn about themselves and to gain an amazing tool for healing and self-discovery. Annie will work with each workshop 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 home.
LOCATION: The NYC workshop will be held in a private home on Roosevelt Island, NYC, from 10 Am to 2:30 Pm. Lunch is included. In advance of the event, an email with more details will be sent to you at the email where you registered. If you have questions in the meantime, please contact Annie.
TO PREPARE for the workshop, close your eyes and remember a rhythmic piece of language that moved you as a child. Write it down if you like, or just remember it, and bring it to share when we meet . . . .

Comments from Healing Rhythms of Words workshop participants:
“The workshop was enriching and magical! It was amazing to experience how the rhythms spoke to different parts of our healing processes. I have continued to work on what I acquired that day and note its continuous effects on my creative life as well as my mindset.”
“I felt on a deep level that your workshop and exercises and your instruction were magical, and I feel transformed in a way that has already helped me work through a much-needed transformation and healing to some difficult personal subject matter. I feel I’ve already made some big breakthroughs during today’s workshop!”
“It was really incredible. I don’t remember how long it’s been since I cried when reading my words aloud.”
“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.”
