In MovingWriting workshops, we play with movement/dance and words to help us connect with our deep and creative selves, in the company of a supportive circle. Giving voice to our own stories and witnessing the stories of others brings healing, aliveness, and connection with others.

We begin by moving to music in whatever way calls you. There’s no way to do this wrong! We then gather and write in response to an offered prompt. Then we dance a little more, and write a little more, and share our writing with each other along the way. No moving or writing experience is necessary. Bring a journal or notebook, pens, and a willingness to step into something new.

Limited to 8 participants.

Here’s what a few MovingWriting participants had to say about their experience:

“Loretta’s well-crafted writing prompts sparked a writer inside me that I didn’t know I had… I left feeling invigorated, accomplished and proud of myself for trying something new.”

“I’m neither a writer nor a dancer, but Loretta made it easy to put aside my inhibitions and let my emotional body lead the way… I recommend this class for anybody at all!”

“It felt delicious to dive into my creative moving and language self with others. For days after, I felt both emptied and filled up creatively in ways that I hadn’t felt in a long time.”

“I felt refreshed, renewed, and like I had processed some emotional blockages… The paths were opened and the words just flowed.”
