These workshops are offered on the 3rd Saturday of every month 9:30AM - 6:30PM June 18, July 16, August 20, September 17, October 15, November 19, December 17 Limited to 5 participants Vegetarian/ vegan lunch and teas and snacks included In the peaceful atmosphere of the Saturday workshop and with the help of meditations that quiet the critical mind, writing becomes possible, cathartic, transformational, and fun! It can be memoir or fiction. Each workshop is focused around an inspirational theme or myth. Participants write three times for about one hour each time, and receive constructive feedback. Attendees will surprise themselves by the material they’ll produce. Experienced and beginning writers are welcome. “My fiction and creative non-fiction have been published, and I’ve taken a lot of writing classes. But a Saturday workshop with Elana Golden and her intuitive, wise, and gentle guidance has set me on a whole new, very constructive path in my writing. Thanks, Elana!” Bill Ratner, Author, actor, voice-over artist “My dear friend and teacher Elana Golden, holds the best writing workshops and classes I’ve experienced. Check it out. Her ongoing classes and workshops are a gift to anyone, beginner or experienced writer who wishes to expand their craft.” Mimi Fuenzalida, photographer, filmmaker, writer. Themes and Myths Used in Past and Present Workshops RITES OF PASSAGE – the events in our lives that shaped us. Whether publicly recognized, such as one’s first communion, marriage and parenthood, or privately experienced, such as immigration, rape or addiction, these events become doorways into stories. THE MYTH OF THESEUS AND ARIADNE – in the Greek myth, Theseus descends into a labyrinth to conquer the Minotaur, half man half bull, while Princess Ariadne holds a thread guiding him in his descent. In this workshop participants are inspired to write about a time in their life when they descended into a “labyrinth,” faced Minotaur-like figures, and gave or received help. Racism, prejudice, addiction, immigration, war, loss or heartbreak – all these are material for great writing. PORTRAITS AND LANDSCAPES – paintings of the great masters are used as an entry point into a story. As we focus on detail and color, contrast and shade, rhythm and subtext, a composition begins to emerge and we follow it to its unknown destination. Surprisingly, events from the past rearrange themselves in unexpected ways, moments from real life mix in with the imagination … and we find ourselves in a new story… which is fiction. THE MYTH OF PERSEPHONE – in this Greek myth, Princess Persephone is innocently walking in a field of flowers when the ground beneath her feet splits open and she is pulled down into the underworld. Individual modern day versions of this myth take place all the time within families, relationships, addictions, political upheaval, catastrophe, war or illness. In the workshop, times in your life when you unconsciously reenacted this myth will take you into a story.
