Writing is Magic: Mythological Writing with Nick Jaina & Olivia Pepper
“Had I not created my own world, I most certainly would have died in other people’s.” – Anais Nin
Writing is magic and deserves the reverence and dignity we give to such things. Writing is also a personal discipline, not a competition, and it is much more than a means of gaining fame and recognition.
These workshops are devoted to going deeper with our writing, becoming better observers, better critical thinkers, and ultimately more balanced people. We can use writing to save our own lives and the lives of others. This is important work.
“If I have made any valuable discoveries, it has been owing more to patient observation than to any other reason.” – Isaac Newton
(Students are encouraged to take both classes, Nov 11th and Nov 12th, but are also welcome to join one or the other. The content of each class will be different. The focus of the class on Nov 11th will be on Intuitive Writing: finding methods to let go of your critical voice to generate material that will surprise you, teach you more about yourself, help you deal with questions. The focus of the class on Nov 12th will be on Mythological Writing: understanding forms of writing and storytelling structures found in Tarot, alchemy, and mythology to help structure your stories and your writing practice.)
Nick Jaina is a writer and musician from Portland, Oregon. His memoir Get It While You Can was a finalist for the 2016 Oregon Book Award. Olivia Pepper is a healer and mystic from Austin, Texas.
