It's all too easy to become separated from our creative spark, especially in times of uncertainty. In this three-hour weekend workshop, we'll use guided meditation, visualization, and writing exercises to identify and soften our own particular versions of resistance and to reconnect with the parts of us that use language to create. Before the end of class, we'll discuss what we've brought to the surface, emerging with concrete plans for diving back into the heart of our work.
