This module I ask you to write from your childhood, the source of much of your vitality and also of many of your blocks. This module is designed to help you come into greater creativity and awareness.
This week we will look closely at some passages from the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries that write from the experience of childhood.
This week we will explore a variety of writing prompts to work from childhood experiences
Start with the short video to learn the yoga exercises we are going to be doing this week. This week we’re doing some new movements and some movements we’ve done in past weeks to continue working on spinal flexibility and core strength. We start with neck rolls, spinal twist and cat cows, then come into child’s pose to relax. Then we come into stretch pose, and relax again in child’s pose. Then I ask you to shake for a full minute and a half, and then come into child’s pose again before you come into frogs, at your own pace. When you are comfortable with the exercises, you can practice with the audio link.
You can chant with the video below–no need to watch it; just listen and close your eyes. The chanting starts at minute one (if you practice Kundalini yoga and want to tune in, you can do that before minute one). As always, of course you can do the chanting for a shorter amount of time before your writing. Just five minutes before writing can be very powerful.
In this module I provide some links so you can do deeper
into the reading about childhood and into the excerpts for this week.
