Event description

Description

Rhythmic language is an ancient path for uniting body and spirit, idea and intuition, humanity and nature. This workshop will teach writers of all genres to connect with five basic inner rhythms, each of which has its own personality and characteristics, in order to deepen your understanding of language and of yourself, and to channel the primal power of rhythm into your words. Through a series of targeted speaking, listening, performance, and writing exercises, you will discover a repertoire of linguistic patterns and construct your own unique, inspiring rhythmic fingerprint.
