As we know, yoga, dear friends, journaling, talking, getting real, going into our own darkness, all help us re-acquaint ourselves with that true voice within — the conscience, the intuition, the voice that talks to us when we are walking down the street, hair looking great, outfit on point, thinking “this would be a cool scene in a movie, my just strutting confidently down the street like this".
We experience great joy, great comfort (and sometimes, yes, even great sadness) when we find this authentic voice, because it is our real, true identity, because that is who we really are, not just who we want to or aspire to be. The problem, of course, is that that authentic voice resides at one's very core, at the "center of our existence."
It can get buried beneath the belief systems that we adopt, the stories we create or are fed about ourselves or our families, the experiences we faced as children, the love we have experienced and sometimes lost, the pain we have suffered, the joy we have managed to reach for and draw to our chests, our fears, our failures, our mistakes, our triumphs, our visions, our dreams . . . . Just. Really. Buried.
Writing an yoga are ways we can dig our authenticity out of the mire - rediscovering that which was lost - our true voice.
In this two hour workshop, Lauren and Megan will lead you through a series of writing and yoga practices in support of you becoming familiar again with your voice.
