A Movement Retreat for Writers

With Katy Bowman and Sarah Selecky

Omega Institute
Rhinebeck, New York 

September 20 to 22, 2024



Discover how movement can support your body, energize your writing, and feed your creative process in this inspiring writing workshop.

Sarah Selecky + Katy Bowman

Writing is a physical activity that bends the body into a particular and occasionally painful shape. Some aspects of that shape may be nonnegotiable—eyes on a page, hands gripping a pen, or curled atop a keyboard—but others are not. You can choose writing positions that better support your shoulders, spine, hips, and more—and find creative ways to infuse movement into your non-writing time.

Omega InstituteThis energizing and inspiring workshop guides you through simple steps toward creating a more dynamic writing practice and intentionally using movement to nourish your body and creativity at the same time. Discover how dynamic writing releases your creative energy and reveals new insights, as you pair physical exercises with short writing exercises to connect mind, body, and story.

This retreat is designed for anyone who writes or loves the written word; all experience levels are welcome.
