International Women’s Writing Guild Conference

July 6–13 | Muhlenberg College

Hands-on Workshop: Our Bodies, Our Selves: Unlocking the Stories Held in Our Body.

The Buddha says, “The body is the greatest dharma door.” But as women, the wisdom of our bodies is often diverted by confusion, shame and culturally imposed stereotypes.. In this six day workshop, we will give voice to the stories our bodies hold and in the process, generate deeply rich writing. Whether you attend for one day or the entire workshop, you will come away with the seeds for a powerful essay and a better understanding what your body has to tell you about yourself.
