I will be returning to beautiful Galiano Island this weekend where I have once again been invited to offer my “Kung Fu for Writers” Workshop at the Galiano Literary Festival.

In this workshop, I combine certain Liuhebafa movements with Qigong and Creative Writing exercises to awaken the body and stimulate the mind, enabling people to tap into their raw creative energies. This is the fourth year I have been invited to come and offer this popular workshop at the Galiano Lit Fest.

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.

mind/body/planet connectionTap 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 22-24, 2013. You can register for just the Kung Fu For Writers workshop ($20), or take in other festival activities too.
