From where I sit the view is full of potential. Clouds, winks of blue sky, yellow
sprouts glowing in the sun. There is energy in the air. I hope you’re enjoying
the season and letting the creativity around you seep through your writing!
I am so excited! I’m trying something new and I really hope that many of you will be able to join me in this
adventure. For the last year or so I have been taking Feldenkrais classes. Never heard of Feldenkrais? Well, you’re in for a treat. This is a practice designed to keep the body limber and allow you to move fluidly as you age. It’s gentle and very effective--and it’s all about awareness, just like good writing! There’s much more to say about Feldenkrais, so check it out: http://www.feldenkrais.com/method/awareness_through_movement_classes/
My wonderful Feldenkrais teacher, Jan Kingston, and I have realized there is much in common between her approach to movement and my approach to writing. So, we’ve decided to team up and offer a workshop that combines both experiences!
I know there are writing and yoga workshops out there and I’ve even seen writing and river rafting. Both of these are appealing because they speak to both the mind and the body. The combination of an Amherst Writers
Workshop with a Feldenkrais lesson is a unique combo, though. We will be able to address both the mind and body in a new way for most participants. No experience needed in either writing or Feldenkrais work. Please join us! Our first combo workshop is June 23, 2012 in Edmonds, WA.

From time to time I will share my thoughts on writing, alone and in groups, as Pat Schneider would say. I will also use this blog as a place to post news of new publications and opportunities for you to publish.
