A TRANSFORMATIONAL PATH THROUGH WRITING, RHYTHMICAL LANGUAGE, AND COMMUNITY FOR WOMEN
This generative writing retreat with renowned poet Annie Finch opens a path for all who identify as women to open up new paths into your writing with rhythmical language, community, and ritual.
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, and the hemispheres of the brain. Like a yoga class for the mind, Poetry Witchery uses a series of language-postures to access and transform the energy of mind, body, heart, will, and spirit.
The retreat will take place on a farm approximately an hour from Washington, DC. Lodging, meals, tea, and snacks are included with the registration fee. The schedule will run from 11 am Friday to 2 pm Monday. Each day will include generative writing workshop, personal free time for further writing and reading and to enjoy the land, earth-centered ritual focused on creativity and balance, and meals as a group. Annie will also work with each participant on an individual rhythmic template to help you balance and integrate the healing spiral of words. The retreat will begin and end with a sharing ritual.
In advance of the event, an email with more details will be sent to you at the email where you ordered the ticket. If you have questions in the meantime, please contact Annie.
Comments from previous 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.”
