Time for a healthy dose of Kung Fu for Writers!
Martial Arts + Qigong + Writing Prompts = Kick-ass Creative Writing!

Or visit: http://www.vca.ca/contact-usKung Fu for Writers is offered through the Vancouver Island School of Writing based at Victoria College of Art.
Each week, we will explore one of the body’s five principal organs (heart, spleen, lungs, kidneys, liver) using Five Element Qigong along with a corresponding movement from Liuhebafa – an ancient martial art that purports to hold the key to immortality. In the sixth and final week we will focus on the San Jiao, or Triple Burner, to balance all the energies we have set in motion.
Creative writing exercises will be linked to specific qualities of each week’s organ for the ultimate mind-body experience. Writing will be shared but not critiqued. The goal is to develop a spontaneous writing practice (“first thought, best thought,” in the tradition of the Beat poets) that is alive to the moment unfolding around us and within us.
Discover what happens to your creative powers when Angry Horse Turns Head Around or Green Dragon Stretches Claws. It’s all one grand experiment! There’s no telling what will arise. The only thing you can know for certain is that your life and creative practice will be changed in some way by this experience.
