Are you grieving a changing planet? Do you feel you should do something but are unsure what would make a difference?
This yoga of writing workshop will be a safe space to come together and explore the distress many of us are feeling about the climate crisis.
With the help of writing prompts, we will find words to express our thoughts and feelings and connect with each other. Examples of climate activists, innovators and leaders will help transform our angst to action.
Together we will compost our grief and nourish the grounds for renewal. No writing experience necessary.

Yoga is not only physical postures, but a practice to help us transform our lives. In our Yoga of Writing series, we explore writing as a practice of liberation and transformation. Receive guidance to access your authentic voice, tell your story, and discover ways to bring your writing and yourself more fully alive.
