posed of words, melody, rhythm, and a shape that holds them all,” writes Cris Williamson. “We will write every day. We will explore differ- ent ways of writing, which will allow you to access your inner river of thoughts. We will catch words from that river, fasten them to the page, and add music to allow a song to emerge. We will employ a combination of solo and group writing. A compressed style of writing can enable us to be more aware, to be better lis- teners, and to realize that songs live everywhere. We must capture them and set them free.


“You do not need to be a musician or writer to take this workshop. Anyone can do this, and I will show you how. Not only can you do this, but you can be good at it. We all start with baby steps and grow before our own eyes. This is deeply beautiful work, hard and so much fun. Everyone is invited. There is so much joy in this endeavor.”


Bring a small tape or digital recorder, a the- saurus, dictionary, and rhyming dictionary if you have one. Bring an instrument if you play one. You may also bring works-in-progress and Cris will help you bring them to completion.


Cris Williamson’s body of work includes more than 30 albums. Recognized by Performing Songwriter Magazine as one of the decade’s most influential songwriters, her groundbreaking record, The Changer and the Changed, remains a best-selling independent record.


Tai Chi Easy™: Practice Leader Certification Training


Roger Jahnke


The most profound medicine for body, mind, and spirit is produced in the human system for free.


Bring the best of the ancient Chinese wellness methods—Tai Chi and Qigong—to your commu- nity as a Tai Chi Easy Practice Leader.


In the Chinese language, Tai Chi means the “balance and harmony” of natural forces within ourselves and our world. This can mean physical balance and harmony for stability of body and mind, work/life balance, harmony between the practical and the spiritual life. Tai Chi is a form of the ancient self-healing art known as Qi Gong, which means to cultivate healing life energies and resources.


In this Practice Leader Certification Training, Dr. Roger Jahnke, one of the nation’s foremost experts on Chinese medicine, Tai Chi, and Qi Gong, will train participants in a step-by-step program for bringing Qi Gong and Tai Chi home to their schools, corporations, community cen- ters, faith ministries, hospitals, social service agencies, YMCAs, spas, etc. In the new health care system, health professionals and inspired citizens will help to empower people to improve health, prevent disease, enhance longevity, and achieve inner peace. Tai Chi Easy is a mind/body practice which combines exercise and medita- tion (in motion) to activate inner self-healing forces that the ancient Chinese texts call the “healer within” and the “elixir of life.”


In this program you will learn to share simple Qi Gong and Tai Chi practices with others and join the holistic health revolution. For more information, visit www.TaiChiEasy.org.
