Description: How we write our stories is essential to knowing our inmost parts. Not just the bone but the marrow. What gives us strength and vitality. What pushes our perceptions into imagination to create a cohesive body of work. We will discover how our perceptions drive our imagination through spending the first three weeks gathering the sensory details for our story. We will practice guided meditations, writing prompts and poetic structure exercises. In the final three weeks we will practice composition techniques to shape our story.
Mary Oliver said, “The best thing about workshops is people can chance and learn to write better and differently from what they had always thought themselves capable of. It is a great pleasure to see people surpass what they thought was the measure of their ability.”
Hey Justice in the Body Friends, Family,and Community! We hope you have enjoyed this beautiful summer season! As we all prepare for the change of the seasons our new fall schedule will begin on September 16th and run through December 20th. We look forward to taking good care of you and can’t wait to see you soon! We will be posting the new schedule in the next two days!
Justice in the Body’s Co.Directors Shannyn Vicente and Sage Hayes have made the collective decision to change the business model to one that is grounded in donation based giving. Justice in the Body will as of July 1st, 2013 be accepting donations as the newly accepted way of attending classes.
We ask students to make a donation, an offering to the teacher in gratitude for the teachings and guidance recieved. We at JITB believe in the power of removing the “capitalist” structure of “the purchase of services” which leads the ego to have expectations of what the mind dictates the expereince “should or should not be”. We at JITB are interested in changing the vibration to one of offering from the heart and recieving from the heart. In this exchange the purity of heart can be explored. The offering also supports keeping the center doors open, and paying rent and utilities. Justice in the Body is dedicated to providing space for EVERY BODY and creating socially responsible business practices creating greater access by tuning into the vibrations of giving.
Justice in the Body is committed to accessible wellness moving from theory to action. Justice in the Body’s pricing for classes is inspired by the Vipassana Meditation practice. Vipassana asks students for a donation upon completion in an amount that feels energetically appropriate and feasible for the student. The donation is then made in support of another person practicing, not for their own experience. In full circle, another person’s donation made it possible for them to meditate and sit, and they are making it possible for the next.
Workshops and seminars offered by Justice in the Body staff or community practitioners will also be accessible to community members. Slide scale will be offered to all participants and 25% of seats for workshops and seminars will be reserved for folks to pay the lowest amount designated by the workshop facilitator.
Come pratice with us. Take a class. Enjoy the vibrations of giving and recieving and notice how this changes your expereince both while enjoying your time at JITB and as you step back into your day.
