This is a fun class!
We'll start with an interview process that uncovers why we're writing the work in question, who we're writing for, and what unique strengths we bring to the task.
Next we'll do a guided meditation to meet the work itself. You'll find out what your work looks like in spirit, what it wants to be here on earth, and what it wants from you, its writer.
By the end of class, you'll have a sense of your work-in-progress as a wise co-creator, and you'll leave with some simple practices you can do to maintain this powerful, nurturing relationship.
This class is suitable for book length projects of any type, fiction or non, poetry or prose.
