They say we live by stories. We also live in them. Thomas King says, “The truth about stories is that’s all we are.”
Consider the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and textures that our sensate bodies offer us in a single day—and don’t forget what our hands and feet do to connect us to the earth and to each other. Then consider the stories we tell ourselves, stories to make sense of it all.
In a spirit of relaxation and playful ease, Sandra offers a mix of poems, images and writing exercises that spark awareness of the dynamics of your body/mind with memory and imagination and that lead you into writing spontaneous free-fall writing. In this way you’ll discover and write your unique stories that come from within. Who knows, you may even see anew. It’s all about process, not performance.
For those who want to delve more deeply into their spontaneous writing, each class includes instruction in key aspects of the craft of story writing.
