A self-paced, online course hosted on Pathwright.
This class is the love child of writer + women's mental health counselor, Victoria Emanuela and interdisciplinary artist + educator Caitlin Metz. It is the culmination of all they have been thinking, exploring and researching for the past five years.
Write yourself and be present in your body through the use of somatic exercises, assigned reading, embodied writing, guided meditations and art making. In this course, you will write a manifesto, explore self portraiture and deepen the personal practice of being in your body.
By exploring the space between the universe, mind, and your tender body; you will witness histories of your narrative come together and fall apart. You will move, un-peel, and grow. It’s time to challenge all of your conditioned behavior, subconscious programming, question your inner critic, subvert the ways your body has been taken from you, and throw up a middle finger at the ideologies of an oppressive world. You will step deeply into the practice of deconstructing social constructs that influence the relationship you have to your body. You have everything you need within you; we're here to help you reclaim, realign with your core needs, and the wisdom that's in your body.
Students will be accepted into a private facebook group where we can come together as a community, explore concepts and share experiences and support one another.
