Writing a memoir is emotionally courageous work. We need to be honest with ourselves about the endeavor. Often in the writing process we discover things we never knew, we knew. Stuff can come up, emotionally charged stuff. Some times the strong emotions can be frightening, and keep us from the page. Writing into memories, begets more memories. We can’t think so much about the memories and coax them out forcing them to come. We must put the pen to paper, write from the body opening our hearts, let the feelings flow as they must in their own time, breathe deeply and trust in the process.
In this teleseminar you will learn. . .
- How to write from the body more openly with true authenticity
- When and how to get support throughout the memoir writing process
- Writing exercises to help you explore emotions in a new way
- Mindfulness exercises to help keep you balanced, inspired, and connected to your creative genius
- How to write sensory-specificity details that carry emotion
