Kung Fu For Writers – Galiano Workshop


When: Sunday, February 26, 2012.
Time: 11:00 am – Noon.
Where: Galiano Oceanfront Inn & Spa 
Host: Galiano Literary Festival 
Cost: $20

Join me on beautiful Galiano Island for this special workshop combining martial arts movements from Liuhebafa with Qigong and creative writing prompts to awaken your body, unleash your mind and stimulate the flow of words!

Discover what happens to your creative powers when Angry Horse Turns Head Around or Green Dragon Stretches Claws!

Liuhebafa is a 1,000-year-old martial art from China. The 66 flowing movements of this ancient practice are purported to be a recipe for internal alchemy and even immortality.

Tap into your hidden creative powers. Explore your spontaneous writing abilities (“first thought, best thought,” in the tradition of the Beat poets) that are alive to the moment unfolding around you and within you.

Join me in this exciting journey into mind-body connection! No prior background in martial arts is necessary.

This workshop is part of the 3-day Galiano Literary Festival, which runs from February 24-26. You can register for just the Kung Fu For Writers workshop ($20), or take in other festival activities too.
