Back in September we ran a series of trans-inclusive workshops specifically for our female and non binary Members. Participants were asked to produce pieces of creative writing during the workshops which we are sharing, with permission, to celebrate International Women’s Day. This is the second installment of the writing, more will be published throughout the week.
The second stage of this workshop series is starting again next week. Places are fully subscribed but you can find out more about them in the What’s On section.
Yoga by Jazz
The grounding energy rises up through my feet
up my legs into my knees, where there is a
weightless space hiding as the energy travels
Moving up my thighs into my hips
which feels like a pendulum that’s come to stillness.
My chest feels open and I can breathe freely.
My neck feels pleasantly stretched as the energy
spreads from my shoulders to down my arms
feeling heavy but firm
My hands are flat and feel like
lightening is shooting out of my fingertips
My mind is clear and focused
Take this web of actions
strand by strand
woven through consequence
a bend there is balanced by
a lifting and straightening
Breathe in through the nose
breathe out through the mouth
keep it comfortable and steady
remember to listen to your body
this is your vehicle
I wove this web so I can eat
said the spider to the bee
Why in front of my hive?
asked the bee
The spider replies
I catch more flies with honey
than with vinegar.
