LESSON

This module I want to look at resistance–as it comes up in our writing and in our lives in general–and explore various ways to meet that resistance.

​CLOSE READINGS 

This week we will look closely at some prose passages and a final Rumi poem so that take on some difficult and often silent subjects.

WRITING EXERCISES 

This week we will explore a variety of writing prompts to work with and through resistance.


YOGA

Start with the short video to learn the two yoga exercises we are going to be doing this week. This week we are going to be doing stretch pose again, adding breath of fire, to strengthen our navel center. Strengthening our core is so helpful to get through resistance. We are also going to be doing several sun salutations, to get our bodies moving and our energy flowing. Movement is also key to working with resistance. When you are comfortable with the exercises, you can practice with the audio link. As always you can do these yoga exercises separately or combine them with previous yoga sets. And as always, stop the audio at any time to write!



MEDITATION

Start with the short video to learn this week’s chanting meditation to work through blocks and to open our voice and our minds. When I first listened to this music, it seemed hopelessly new agey. But chanting with it can be very powerful. I invite you to try! See what it feels like for yourself. Now, of course, I love it! And this is a much easier and happier meditation than the breathing meditation we did last week. In fact, this meditation can really help you actively get through blocks and resistance and uplift you through the process! I recommend that you at least try it! And see how it feels to do your writing after this meditation. And then if you get stuck with your writing, come back to this uplifting meditation.
