Happening in real time, with input and direction from your instructors and discussions with your classmates. 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, unpeel, 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.

You want to challenge limiting or problematic mindsets. You are in the process of healing. You want to radically deepen your relationship with yourself. You want to strengthen your creative process. You want to connect with your inner child. You want to experience radical embodiment and feel at home in yourself. You want to learn how to meditate. You want to resist oppressive social structures. You want to be uninhibited in making this world a safer space for all. You want to dissect what parts of you are under erasure. You want to grow and be reborn.

WHAT DO I GET?
You get six weeks of content that will drop every Saturday morning. Weekly feedback and input from your instructors when you submit your projects. A digital copy of our book A guide to Writing Yourself. And unlimited access to our course for as long as you want!
WHAT IS MY TIME COMMITMENT?
We suggest setting aside 2-4 hours a week for assigned reading, meditations and exercises. You will also be asked to keep a daily journal. How much you do is up to you, but we hope you'll hold space for this sacred work.
WHEN DOES THE COURSE RUN?
The current course starts January 13th, runs for 7 weeks in real time (meaning we'll all be moving together through the content at the same time, so we can hold discussions and chats about the work. We think this is the best way to build community, accountability, and help you get your money's worth). You will have unlimited access to the course content after the 7 weeks are up. But only feedback from your instructors during that time.
Next class coming Summer 2018.
