To Invent What We Desire: Strategies and Meditations for Getting Unstuck

It’s easy to become separated from our writing, and sometimes we don’t know how to return from that stuck place. This course explores experiences of being lost—and ways of getting found. We’ll start with nine strategies drawn from Adrienne Rich’s essay “To invent what we desire” (in What Is Found There: Notebooks on Poetry and Politics), then go deeper, using guided meditation and self-hypnosis to encounter and soften our resistance and reconnect with the artist within us. We’ll finish up with discussion and plans for diving back into the heart of our work.
