*We're offering this live experience as a gift to you. Should you feel moved to do so, you may also make a gift in appreciation. All proceeds will go to an organization devoted to women and the arts.
In times of seemingly endless trial, flawed and failing political and social systems, personal and planetary grief, we honor the grass roots movements—the ones with their feet on the ground in protest and political action. And we call to the artists, dreamers, and creatives to begin to sculpt new and yet to be imagined ways of being.
Write a new society into the now.
Paint us a future that looks entirely different than anything we have ever envisioned.
Conjure what could be.
Join us on October 24th as we gather for a one-hour write-in. For an exploration of prompts that invite you to honor the struggle and to explore a path into the unimagined. Create your ways, spaces, and nations. Use your words to spark our leaders into action. Write your way into new conversations. Come and muse on the alternate universes where peace and love and justice reside. Come and rest in this safe space to dream.
liberated lines is a daily practice because we know that this is where the magic lies. The truth is you can change your life, your breath, your very being with a daily practice. It doesn't matter how brief, rough, or seemingly small that practice is. To tap into releasing the shades of your truth a few times is lovely but to cultivate a freedom that resounds through your very cells takes a commitment to repetition. That is all. A mini dance with creative truth that happens every day will touch you. And you deserve to be touched.
These momentary snapshots are all alive within you, like puzzle pieces, like poker chips clinking together in your bag. We invite you to draw your hand and play. To each day jump in with a little something–a little something messy and fresh and rough. A little something beautiful and raw and daring. A little something private and elusive and tucked away. A little something that opens you towards your truth.
If you are not sure your soul is ready to bare itself so publicly, don't worry. We can show you how to create an anonymous or private Instagram account and there is always the sanctuary of our Facebook group. Or simply follow along in your own sacred way.
We will provide prompts, support, guidance, encouragement, and accountability. And of course, we will be there with you, diving in daily, living the momentary, compelling, creative energy of opening. We will be there to hold space for the release of your dynamic truth.
BECAUSE EVERYONE NEEDS THEIR VOICE LIBERATED.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Instagram?
From the Instagram website: Instagram is a fun and quirky way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures. Snap a photo with your mobile phone, then choose a filter to transform the image into a memory to keep around forever. We're building Instagram to allow you to experience moments in your friends' lives through pictures as they happen. We imagine a world more connected through photos. (The Instagram app is free for download through the Apple store and Google Play.)
Do I have to have an Instagram account in order to participate?
When we dreamed up this course we envisioned it with Instagram as the primary way in which we would release our words and share this experience. However, it is not necessary. We will also be holding space for you and showing up in the private Facebook group.
How do I create an Instagram account?
You can create an account by visiting the Instagram website: http://www.instagram.com or when you download the app to your mobile device.
How do I make my Instagram account anonymous or private?
When you create your account, one option is to make a profile with a pseudonym. Your pictures and poems would be viewable by anyone who follows your chosen name. The other option would be to simply make your profile private. By making your profile private, only those whom you allow to follow your Instagram feed would be able to see your images and words.
