 writing from the body comes out of the visionary work of Emilie Conrad's continuum movement.                   i've been a practitioner for almost 20 years. a moving prayer. body mind and spirit moved to write                                                                 and a practise for any creative expression. 

                                       a group of dedicated writers have chosen to support their writing                                                                in different genres through this series. we use breath and sound and prompts                                                    to stir words to the surface.  only requirement: an open heart and deep trust in                                                           your desire to write. deep listening and supportive feedback has helped                                                                    generate profound expression from poets & lyric prose writers alike. 

                                                         open to all ages & experience. limited to 8 writers.

this class offers the possibility of generating new writing material by using breath, sound and wave motion. the practice we follow is based on emily conrad's continuum movement. 

by diving deep into the sensations of the body, writing emerges onto the page in language that engages both writer and reader in textured and surprising ways.

in a small group of dedicated writers and good listeners, you'll have the opportunity to give and receive feedback and renew your joy in the act of writing.

the provenance of words is one of the mysteries we swim in. as is the body. we swim here too. in writing from the body, by sounding and sending measured breaths into the dark intimacy of our inner space, the resonant field resounds. words come in and out.  one by one. respiration. from formlessness to form. inspiration. 

my understanding of the resource of our fluid system comes from the work of emily conrad and continuum movement: we do not move. we are movement. we recapitulate the whole evolutionary process of life.

many writers have found the weaving of continuum movement with the practice of writing enhances the fabric of words.

7 participants. 

space to listen and be heard in a 

supportive and creative group of writers.
