As we close out the month, let’s think about what is essential to us, to our mental health, our emotional health, our growth, our learning, our ability to be close to one another.
Write about what it is you need be to open, to feel safe, to trust, to love. What is it you need? Where do you search for it? Where have you found it in the past? Where are you looking for it now?
Let’s identify the nourishment we need to blossom as spring approaches (though in California it might feel like it’s already here).
The Moon’s Influence….Dreams, Cycles, Senses
The full moon of this month was on Friday, February 14th. The moon has long been associated with the subconscious, intuition, imagination, and emotional extremes. It could be a source of bewilderment, increase sensitivities, or simply be our source of light in darkness. Our connection to the dream world is heightened around the full moon. This week keep an account of your dreams, revisit old ones, or explore the practice of dreaming of new worlds in relation to your own creativity, resistance, and liberation.
Some dream prompts…
We spent last week thinking about what nourishes us. This week, let’s explore the idea of courage:
We are beginning this week by talking about the things that nourish us. What is it that feeds your creativity, nourishes your soul, gives you life? What does it look like, what’s its shape, color, smell, taste, texture?
It’s that time of the year again! Dust off your notebooks-journals-keyboards- and WRITE!
The goal is to write everyday for a month. This session runs February 1-28. You can write as little or as much as you want in any format – poetry, journal entry, short story, article – but the point is to write every day. We’ll also have weekly prompts available to get you started, but responding to them is not required. Prompts will be posted at the Facebook event page and on this very tumblr.
So if you want to get back into your writing groove and join up with a community of bad ass female and trans writers from across the globe, join our February Writers Workshop!
