Power Practice #02: Writing the Bones - The Art and Power of Engaging with Your Silence

Dominique Christina Writing the Bones

Struggling with writer's block?

Dominique Christina shares "Writing the Bones," a compassionate practice to help us improve our relationship with the written word. This Power Practice will teach us how to accept and creatively transform our silence, our inner critic, or simply put, to engage writer's block. Dominique patiently guides us through the process of "dealing with silence before words happen." 

Dominique teaches us how to fight and own our insecurities by giving them a seat at the table, by allowing the silence to be a collaborator and an instigator of creativity. This is truly a fascinating exercise that will help you stretch your imagination.

Play the Power Practice:

"Attach a wider lens to your silence as a way to conquer it."
