Virtual Event: Zoom Meeting
Space is limited to 30 participants! Please register HERE to save your spot.
Join interdisciplinary artist Cara Hagan for a workshop that takes us into our inner corners to mine for innate wisdom that supports us during challenging and uncertain times. A writing workshop in embodied disguise, participants will write, move, breathe, and leave the experience with a renewed sense of wonder and soul-fuel for the months ahead. Many of the exercises will be easily repeatable after the workshop. Participants are free to add them to their personal toolbox. Space is limited. Save your spot now! If, for any reason, you are unable to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can open your spot up to another participant.
In preparation for the workshop, participants are asked to build a small altar - a collection of precious objects which hold space for our experiences, energies, and hopes. If you're new to altar building, have fun! Some suggestions of how to construct an altar include making sure you have a sturdy space to put your objects where they won't be disturbed - this can be a plate, a box, a small table, or other such things you find around the house! If you're wondering what to put on your altar, suggestions include something from the earth, pictures of ancestors, sacred personal objects, objects in colors that raise your vibration, and things that emit or reflect light. Additionally, you'll need something to write with, a comfortable place to sit, with enough room to stand and extend your arms out to your sides and over your head.
