Each live writing ritual will offer a guided grounding meditation and three free-writing prompts. After each prompt, there will be the opportunity to share your writing and offer the gift of mindful listening to others. We will begin each ritual with grounding somatic meditation, tapping our body-felt sense in the present moment as the gateway to respond to writing prompts. Playing with poetry supports the formation of fresh language patterns and invites us to become more intimate with the “unsayable” and how we sense-make the abundance of phenomena our bodies experience each day. In community, we will sculpt sense-rich word combinations to savor our ordinary moments, our extraordinary stories.
We gather via Zoom video conference—a computer with a video camera and internet access or a smartphone is all that is needed. Headphones with a microphone can make the experience more pleasant but are not required. Participants are asked to access the video webcast from a private space (public spaces like coffee shops, etc. have too much background noise for a good experience). You will receive an access link via email after registering!
** Single Ritual Drop-In is only available to participants who have previously attended a writing workshop (online or in-person) with Ash Good or any other Portland Women Writers facilitator. If you’re unsure if you’re eligible for drop-in sign up please email email@example.com
