Blue Sky Writes

Join a Blue Sky Writing Group

In our work with individuals and groups, we’ve found that writing regularly in a loving space is a powerful practice. Somehow, the space itself transforms. We discover deeper truths and patterns emerging. We become more and more comfortable with the vulnerable feeling of not-knowing. We become more able to tolerate the discomfort of being out on the edge. The practice is not just for writers, although even experienced writers find that their voice becomes clearer, more honest. We suspect it has something to do with hearing yourself and others speak aloud in a new way. You discover what you didn’t know you knew until it shows up on the page. You begin to recognize your most authentic voice and that of others, and you begin to see how unique and valuable each voice is. When you hear yourself reading your own words out loud, something funny happens—they become real. Your words, your stories, your truths start to live outside you…

We began writing together, as our own discovery practice; then it naturally expanded to include our clients. Now we want to invite you to experience it with us.

Groups meet weekly and are ongoing, month to month. One-time workshops are half day, either in person (Maine or California) or online. For more information or to sign up for next month’s group, email us.

November 2018 Online Writing Group
Dates: Four Thursdays in November and December (11/1, 11/8, 11/29 and 12/6)
Where: online via Zoom
Cost: $150
What to expect: We’re so excited to offer this four-week group starting in November. The great thing about smaller (5-8 people), ongoing groups is we get to go deeper in exploring essence and meaning in what arises. Our September group was amazing! And this one will be too.

Writing Workshop in Maine
Date: Sunday, December 2, 1pm to 4pm
Where: Ways to Wellness Center, Windham, Maine
Cost: $30
Register: call or text Jillian at 413-297-4917, or email jh@blueskyblacksheep.com
What to expect: This workshop is a one-time experience of our blue sky writing process; a different kind of writing workshop that is not just about writing. We will write to various prompts, using writing as a tool or portal into something new, a new way to hear ourselves speaking in our most authentic voices. Often there’s a consistent thread in each of us in what gets written; and when we read what we’ve written out loud it becomes a gift to others. There are no expectations of outcomes or deliverables and no judgment about what arises. Join us for this time and space apart–to be, become and discover.
