On Campus Program

Embodied Writing Enchanting the Home of the Self


Join acclaimed author, Junauda Petrus, and artist and lead Kripalu faculty member, Monique Schubert, for a program that supports personal discovery and creative healing. In a safe space for writing practice, Junauda and Monique will guide you to nourish your body, soul, and imagination through an alchemy of creative writing, yoga, meditation, and more.

You will:

  • Be inspired by the works of ancestral Black feminist writers.
  • Delve into depths of your soul in ways that are sacred, speculative, and boundless.
  • Explore the pathway to your joy and personal truths.
  • Deepen your creative practices through ancestral reflections, oracle, and astrology 

This program is for anyone interested in experiencing a meaningful shift in their relationship to creativity and healing. It's suitable for folks who are generative, open-minded, and decolonized in their practice and all people who are interested in cocreating a harmonious and caring environment. 

Return home with new awareness of your limitless imagination and wildest dreams.

NOTE Participants are invited, but not required, to share their writing within the group and to participate in sharing and listening activities throughout our time together.
