Writer’s Life: Settling In

If you were at Creativity Camp in February, you enjoyed the ancient Chinese martial art qi gong, taught by our friend and qi gong master, Barbara Evans-Levine. One of the things we teach at Creativity Camp is the importance of being grounded, creating ritual, and making a solid connection to your crazy creative muse before you settle in for a sprint of writing. That’s one reason we enjoy a moving meditation every morning at Camp: to get out of our busy brains and get our blood pumping. We want to give a shout out to Barbara and encourage you to learn more about qi gong here. If you’re in the Tucson area, you can catch a live class with Barbara but, if not, she has a wonderful DVD of her qi gong class for sale on her website. No matter what you do, make sure to move your lovely body in a way that connects you to your Creative Spark and allows your words to flow across the page.
