with this course, I offer you an invitation to soften. to lay down the pushing, striving, overwhelm, and over-doing that may be surrounding your writing. I invite you to remember a different way. a way of allowing. a way of ease. a way of moving in harmony with your innate rhythm: your womb’s menstrual cycle.
each of us has a rhythm that is wholly and uniquely ours. from the heart of Spring to mid-Summer’s night, we gather to relearn and remember this ancient womb wisdom, so that we can bring it to our writing practice and our writing projects.
in this 13-week course, we gently and slowly reconnect with our innate womb rhythms by
our writing can be a source of deep fulfilment and peace. it doesn’t have to be painful & frustrating: filled with cycles of writer’s block, and procrastination, followed by working until all hours as we rush to meet a deadline.
by aligning our writing practice with our menstrual cycle, we return to the natural rhythms our bodies live by each day. this allows us to create a more sustainable and grounded writing practice, where our creativity feeds and supports us.

Words in Womb Rhythm is designed for women writers. that is, women who already have an established writing practice and/or career; or women who are at the start, or in the process of establishing their writing practice and/or career. writing must already be a fundamental and foundational part of your daily life.
you do not have to be a professional full-time writer, but you must have some writing and writing practice experience. or, you must be ready to make a deeper commitment to your writing and writing practice.
we will meet once a week for a 2-hour live workshop. all sessions take place online via Zoom. this is where I will share/offer information on the womb and our menstrual cycles. sessions may or may not be recorded, depending on the nature of the workshop and what people are sharing, and if the group would like those discussions to be recorded or not.
there will also be daily writing, reflection & meditation practices for you to do —these are an important part of the process, as this is where you will connect with your womb and begin to learn your menstrual cycle.
Sat September 23rd, 10am to noon SAST
Tuesdays, 10am to noon SAST
Thurs December 21st, 10am to noon SAST
you must be able to attend all sessions. sessions may or may not be recorded, this will depend on the nature of what we are discussing and whether or not the group wants that to be recorded
