Wild Mind, Open Heart: Writing from the Source, An Urban Writing and Yoga Retreat in Brooklyn
Invite greater aliveness into your writing practice as we explore wild mind that raw, hungry, curious place that is the source of our best and most authentic writing.
In this workshop, we'll explore writing as an art form that often lies in contradiction: structure and no structure, movement and stillness, wildness and tameness. Utilizing yoga, heart opening exercises, African dance and movement we will tap into the depths of our creativity. You will leave the workshop with a range of practical tools, a broader perspective and renewed sense of your own writing and artistic potential.
Whether you are a writer, seeker, artist, dancer, yogi or just interested in creative expression, this class is for anyone who wants to expand their creative potential and unleash their "wild mind" onto the page.
This class is taught by Nina Chanpreet Kaur and Jennifer Mattson who have studied with and assisted writing workshops with Natalie Goldberg and Julia Cameron. Pilin Anice from Afro Flow Yoga will be the yoga instructor.
Suggested texts are Wild Mind: Living the Writer's Life by Natalie Goldberg; Walking in this World by Julia Cameron; Wild, Cheryl Strayed
Location: New Leaf 576 9th St. Brooklyn, NY 11215
Cost: $129 +fee

The Artsy Hookup: A Networking Night for Artists
Feeling isolated in your creative process? Want to get involved in projects and artistic collaboration? New to the city and looking to connect with like-minded creatives? Let the Artsy Hookup help you out!
Two resources for artists and creative people, CREATIVE FRIDAYS & THE ARTSY YENTA, are coming together to create a social networking happy hour for artists. Although many creative people can get comfortable working solo, they recognize that some of the best work happens when great minds come together.
Are you a choreographer looking for the right lighting designer? A visual artist wanting to feature your work in performance settings? A dancer or singer wanting to share your talents? Join us and find your match. The evening will include: a fun, social atmosphere; raffle prizes and giveaways; guided activities to help you connect. Shandoah, The Artsy Yenta, will lead a networking component which resembles 'speed dating' but for your creative connections where guests will have the opportunity to meet everyone who is there and have brief encounters which could lead to lasting artistic collaborations! Jess, of Creative Fridays, will lead a writing and inner connection component that will help you get clear on your message and intentions to help you make the most of the evening.
Get out of your bubble and make stuff happen.
Location: 61 Local, 61 Bergen Street Brooklyn, NY
Cost: FREE!

Unmuted Expression: Discover & Celebrate Your Authenticity
Expressing yourself fully and authentically is what you're in this world to do but it can be hard and lonely.
Perhaps you're living your life compartmentalized with different versions of yourself at work, with friends, with your partner, or home alone. Maybe you've lost touch with who you are. Or you've stayed quiet and small in an attempt to not outshine others around you. You might be feeling disconnected, alone, misaligned, and unfulfilled. Perhaps you just haven't had the space to consider who you truly are, what you want to say, what great gift and message you're meant to share.
It's time to get clear on what's been holding you back and let that shit go.
I'm bringing together an inspiring group of women who are full of wisdom and eager to share it with you. These women are writers, singers, dancers, entrepreneurs, etc. who have struggled with being all of who they are in every area of their lives, but who are committed to moving forward so they can do their life's great work and express their life's great love.
You will learn how to start showing up as all of who you are all the time, and how to blend the fragmented parts of yourself in one beautiful being. Part workshop and part dance party, this is more than just an event, it's an experience. You'll journal, move your body, reconnect with your voice, and (re)discover and celebrate your authentic expression. And because the tangible is important, you'll also leave with tools and next steps to take beyond the event.
This is a safe space for you to come together with other women to honor your wisdom, stories, and experiences without judgment. You will leave knowing that your words and stories have value - that you have value - and that you're not alone.
Stay tuned for a full list of speakers.
Cost: First Dibs: $55; Regular: $85
