The Balance Wheel: Exploring How to Create Equilibrium in Unsettling Times - A Zoom Writing Workshop
During these times of the pandemic, our normal routines are akilter. Life isn't proceeding as expected. How can we use this as an opportunity to examine the aspects of our lives that we would like to bring into balance or to develop? We will use the template of a Balance Wheel mandala coupled with structured writing exercises to process what areas of our lives need attention, and what inner resources we have to meet the demands of a healthy, balanced life. We'll end with written meditations on our experiences of joy, grace and gratitude. Handouts to work with will be emailed to you. You'll need to provide a notebook (or computer) and colored pencils.
This is an online Zoom class. It is free and open to the public. A computer or other device and an internet connection is necessary in order to participate in this class. Space is limited and registration is required.
