DEEP LISTENING: Meditation and Writing Toward Creating Your Future

Feeling stuck or derailed? Wishing for a change in the route your life has taken? This workshop will guide you through the basics of two important processes toward accessing your true creative voice and taking steps in realizing personal goals and a vision for your recreated future. A combination of guided meditation and creative writing exercises will be introduced and put into practice during this workshop, enabling you to immediately begin to hear your innermost desires and instincts toward making changes and gaining momentum in creating the truest version of your self, how to realign the structure of  your life, and the real work that you want to do.

Please bring pens, paper and/or your journal!!

This workshop is co-taught by Sherry Antonini and Kara Nakfoor. Antonini is an interdisciplinary artist who teaches writing at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Columbia College Chicago. Nakfoor is a psychic reader, energy healer, and meditation teacher.

TRACERS is teaming up with The Nightingale for a monthly media series featuring readings, scholars, films, moving pictures, music, meditation, performance, and lively discussion around topics of contemporary feminism. Over the course of the year, this series presents a body of texts and media designed to promote broader feminist discourse beyond the institutional setting. Your new feminist library starts here. Unless otherwise noted, these events are family friendly and FREE.

Second on our docket is WOMEN’S WORK.  To create an event that is part book club/screening/discussion group, we invited media scholar Beth Capper to chose a contemporary feminist text to explore. She will introduce major concepts from The Problem With Work: Feminism, Marxism, Antiwork Politics and Postwork Imaginaries by Kathi Weeks and present a screening of work illustrative of its themes. Reading the book isn’t required to participate. The event is modular and meant to work as as introduction to texts and issues that can be explored further.

Featuring:
Chocolate Cake by JoAnn Elam

Killing Time/Fannie’s Film by Fronza Woods

Bessie Cohen, Survivor of 1911 Shirtwaist Fire by Hope Tucker

Conductor/Collaboration #3 by Ei Jane Janet Lin & Miao Jia Xin

Beth Capper is a PhD student in modern culture and media at Brown University, where she works at the intersections of feminist media and performance.
