Why We Write: Natalie Goldberg

Here's a quote to put a bow on our July theme, Embodiment & Free-Flow Writing

"Writing is moving into our bodies, especially when we write longhand, and not just our head.
It makes us more grounded, more intuitive. Writing is a gut level experience."                
~Natalie Goldberg

Want to write?
Take a pen & prompt journey:

writing longhand


1. Grab a pen & notebook. Write the prompt at the top of the page. Set a timer for 10 minutes. Or 5. Or 2!

2. Keep your pen moving as you write the thoughts, feelings, and images that arise in the moment. What senses and sensations do you notice? Don’t stop to think or edit.

3. Accept ALL that you write - the pretty & ugly; absurd & boring. Discover what wants to be felt, known, expressed, released...
