Dream and Write Workshop
With Nan Seymour and Scott Moore
Open yourself to the generative creativity within you through mindfulness, poetry, and a free-flowing pen.
Saturday, March 9 2:30–5 pm at 21st Yoga 2065 East 2100 S. Salt Lake City, Utah
Dream and Write is born from two practices: Yoga Nidra, a relaxing Awareness practice that feels like guided meditation, and River Writing, a writing practice of inviting words to flow, unobstructed from a river of inner-narrative. Paired together, this practice creates a unique mindfulness writing experience that taps profound Awareness for clarity and flow of writing.
Over the past few years, Nan and Scott have offered several Dream and Write workshop, classes, and retreats. The intention of Dream and Write is to use mindfulness, poetry, and gentle encouragement to source the words that are within you in. We insist on a judgement-free, non-editing, and mutually supportive environment.
Meet the facilitators
My name is Scott Moore and I'm passionate about helping you feel alive, grounded, and purposeful through the art and practice of yoga and meditation.
I've spent the past 15 years studying, practicing, and teaching yoga and meditation and I believe that everyone has an extraordinary life to live a unique pathway to wellness.
I'm passionate about Yoga Nidra, a relaxing form of Self-Inquiry. In Dream and Write I will guide you through this relaxing practice for you to tap your unbound Awareness, the key to unlocking the words that are within you.
I live in Nice, France and I have taught yoga and mindfulness in Salt Lake City, New York, San Francisco, Idaho, Hawaii, and Wyoming. I teach classes, courses, workshops, and retreats around the world. I also write for Mantra Magazine, Conscious Life News, Elephant Journal, Shut Up & Yoga, and my own blog.
I offer narrative encouragement.
Over the last five years, I've facilitated writing and storytelling workshops for hundreds of people: including cancer survivors, high school students, homeless writers, healthcare providers, and survivors of domestic violence. I offer an ongoing schedule of writing practices here at my River Writing studio in Salt Lake City.
I'm currently revising a dual-voiced memoir with my daughter Beatrice Washburn: the story of parenting a transgender girl who survived to become herself through the perils of a misgendered adolescence. As a mother and an unabashed ally, I know that true stories can save us.
I spent many of my grown-up years as a miller and baker of whole-grain bread. I learned something about process by milling the wheat. I acquired some patience while waiting for the loaves to rise.
Perfect for all-levels writers and meditators!
How it Works
In Dream and Write, we first open to mindfulness with a gentle yoga and breathing practice, then a Yoga Nidra practice (relaxing guided meditation). Then, we write to the raw experience of that Awareness. After a break, Nan sparks creativity and inspiration with a poem and invites a timed free-write. After, you may read your words to the group. There are no edits, critique, or praise, only a "Thank you." It's a beautiful, inspiring, and soul-expanding practice.
