Writing Through The Body with Johnnie Mazzocco

Date: Saturday, February 28th
Time: 10:00 am – 2:30 pm
Location: For Goodness Sake

Four hour creative workshop with short break for lunch.

Writing Through the Body™ is a workshop process created by writer, teacher, and workshop leader, Johnnie Mazzocco, designed for those invested in overcoming blocks to achieve flow, find their voices, and tell their untold stories.

Writing Through the Body™ uses a system based on the seven main chakras of the body and is available for both fiction and memoir writers.

In this free workshop, you will gain information about Johnnie's experience of achieving a level of flow through her writing that transformed her life in a deep and profound way. You'll also learn about the creation of the Writing Through the Body™ process and how it works, as well as details about the seven main chakras and how they can help you deepen your writing, create more complex characters (for fiction writers), and realize greater self-awareness. We'll also do a meditation to open your chakras and writing exercise or two, as well!

Johnnie Mazzocco is a writer, teacher, workshop leader, and filmmaker.

Johnnie is a spiritual warrior, committed to consciously honoring her pursuit for authenticity, and it is her calling in this life to help others do the same. She is just as compelled to examine the soul and its ability to teach us through its dark, watery depths as she is to examine the human spirit and its ability to heal us with its resplendent resilience.

Her background and work experience are long and varied. Prior to her time as an adjunct professor, she worked as a secretary, hairdresser, landscaper, data collector, drill press operator, bartender (still dabbles in this), and mother (still is – always will be).

A late bloomer, by society’s standards, Johnnie began to pursue her college education just after the birth of her third child and spent the rest of her kids’ growing up years juggling mothering, school, and work, staying afloat by teaching and pounding the pavement for odd jobs, all of which have served as fodder for her fiction.

Johnnie possesses a BA in Writing, a Graduate Certificate in Women’s Studies, an MA in English/Film Studies, and an MFA in Digital Arts.

Please call 530-550-8981 or email info@goodnesssake.org to register.
