Writing — like yoga — can transform your life.
Yoga is not only asana, the physical postures, but a spiritual practice to help us transform our lives. In this Yoga of Writing series, we will explore writing as a practice of liberation and transformation. For this series on the Yoga of Writing I chose three extraordinary Bay Area writers I admire greatly to join me in sharing their creative processes for delving into writing as a spiritual practice: Christopher P. Delorenzo, Helen Konaris and Jane Brunette. With guidance, you can access your authentic voice, tell your story, and discover ways to bring your writing and yourself more fully alive. ~ Nina Schnall, Artistic Director

Writing is a way — as Buddhist writer Natalie Goldberg has said — to break through “inertia and become awake.” Thru gentle movement, conscious breathing and creative writing exercises Nina shows us how to clear the way for the play of imagination and awakening presence.

The body is a sacred place. It holds memory. It is the site of ancient story and dream and myth. Yet sometimes it is hard to access our connection to the divine within. Through movement, breath, journeys into the imaginal realm, and creative writing prompts we record our own embodied wisdom.
