Susan Ewing, LCSW, to offer introduction to proprioceptive writing; Faye Henry to partner with Yoga by Cindy on sonic massage/yoga experience
Wrens Nest Center for Wellbeing, located at 2001 Shields Rd. in Dalton, Ga., will host “Spring Awakening for the Mind & Body” Saturday and Sunday, March 19-20. Participants can register for both events or just one.
Saturday’s event will focus on “Spring Awakening of the Mind with Proprioceptive Writing and Visual Storytelling” and will be held from 9 a.m. – noon with featured presenter Susan Ewing, LCSW. Ewing will lead a 1.5-hour introduction to proprioceptive writing, a technique that helps quiet the mind and uncover the thoughts and feelings that have been lying dormant, while bringing them to the surface to explore what wisdom they have for future growth and renewal. “Spring is a time for renewal and one of the ways that we can renew ourselves is by slowing down and paying attention to our thoughts and our longings. Proprioceptive writing encourages us to pay attention to our inner wisdom,” she said. Ewing is a licensed clinical social worker who has been in private practice for the past 25 years and has presented on various topics such as self-esteem, parenting and increasing self-awareness, among others. (She will also offer participants a chance to register for followup writing sessions to continue their proprioceptive writing experience.) Following Ewing’s proprioceptive writing session, participants will collectively explore through watercolor how a key element of their “story” can be translated artistically. (Materials included.) Registration for the Saturday workshop is $35. Spots can be reserved by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. (Early registration is encouraged.)
Sunday’s event will focus on the “Spring Awakening of the Body with Sonic Massage and Yoga” and will be held from 1-2:30 p.m. with featured presenter Faye Henry of Touchstone Vibrations offering a live sonic massage experience and yoga therapist Cindy Michaels leading the class in yoga. “Each person has their own unique vibrational blueprint. When our vibration is out of balance and harmony, the body does not maintain its perfect health and state of wellbeing. It can be corrected in many ways, and the sound of the gongs is a most relaxing and rejuvenating method of transforming energy back into your original blueprint,” Henry explained. Participants will enjoy the captivating sound of seven gongs and experience how resonance and sound can help balance the energy systems of the body. Michaels will the lead participants in a gentle yoga class to complement the sonic experience. Registration for Sunday’s event is $25. Spots can be reserved by emailing email@example.com. (Early registration is encouraged.)
