These are just some examples of the many events that have been held at Body of Wisdom. This writing workshop was special because it was the first! And here are some pictures from The ”Julie and Julia” Book Club/Dinner Club held last summer, we had so much fun as you can see!
When women gather to share their experiences through writing, voice, movement, eating and ritual something magical happens. Together they learn to value their struggles and celebrate their strengths. To write and speak from the heart, at once personal and universal, is rich and intimate.
Beginning, intermediate and advanced writers are welcome. Class is limited to 12 people.
The workshop will provide:
- a beautiful, safe, and creative environment to support you,
- a way for you to discover your voice and claim your expressive freedom,
- a means to trust your own inner wisdom,
- an opportunity for you to discover and share your experiences if you choose,
- music, pictures, objects, nature and guided imagery in which to respond,
- individual body awareness through breathing, meditation, yoga and energy movement,
- and wholesome, nutritious meals.

“Voices from the Heartland” was a huge success! Thanks to Mary Tuchscherer and all the terrific participants and helpers. During this one day workshop we shared our stories, a few great meals, a seasonal meditative walk and a yoga session. Our written stories were amazing and we learned to listen and take care of ourselves. Some of the participants remarked that they had never experienced anything like it before!
Here’s some more pictures from the Julie and Julia – Book Club/Dinner Club!As you can see, it was quite hilarious……

But, much attention!!
Oh, cleared out? You mean after all that blood, I mean ketchup!
