Impossible Dreams Facilitated “Freewrite” Sessions – With Kristin Masters
March 15, 2023 @ 12:00 am
Following an offering in Sarah Peyton’s FREE Resonance Summit (https://sarahpeyton.com/resonance-summit-2023/ Kristin’s session is Friday 3/24 from 10:30-11:55 pacific time titled The Why & How of Impossible Dreams) Kristin began planning this series as a way to explore in one of her favorite forms- Freewriting! This piece of resonant language is a powerful addition to our capacities to let ourselves want… and can allow us to meet ourselves and others in the places we long for more agency.
What to Expect: This series will meet for 4 Tuesdays from 9-10:30 am pacific time, on zoom (link to be sent to registered applicants!)
Each session will open with a welcoming and a short quieting to arrive, connect with yourself and your body, and consider an inquiry. Then we will move into the first prompted freewrite session for 10 minutes. While writing/typing, each person will allow words to come without editing, with no need to punctuate, or even to make sense. If you hit a spot that is stuck, simply start with the prompt again. Or begin with “What I really want to say is..”
When we return to the main room, we will go into breakouts with a small number of other freewriters (unless you choose to pass). In those each person who wishes to will read aloud. Others will simply say “thank you”. While listening, Kristin encourages you to capture “echoes” of phrases that stay with you. When we return to the whole group we will share these echoes as a way of soaking in the collective experience.
We will have a second freewrite session with a different prompt related to Impossible Dreams, and, time permitting, will repeat the process.
In these ways Kristin expects that all of us will walk away moved and inspired by the explorations of our inquiries, ours and other’s.
Note: You don’t have to consider yourself a writer to engage in this process! I’ve heard people report, over and over, that they arrived to this structure unsure, and have since reclaimed their expressive voice, have been freed to think out loud and hear surprising words ad thoughts emerge.
