Mindful Writing (Spring/Summer 2019)

6-Week Course

Building a Mindful Writing Practice (6 weeks)
Registration Deadline: April 17

Mindfulness silences the noise, so that we can discover what pulls on our souls. In this six-week course, we will create a mindful approach to our writing practice. Each week through meditation and writing, we will see how mindfulness can create a space for our creativity. We will explore how to create a mindful writing habit, silence our inner critic and discover the stories we want to tell. We will open ourselves to our thoughts and to the page without judgment and let our ideas flow. 
No prior mindfulness or writing experience required. Be sure to bring paper and pen!

Dates:4/24, 5/1, 5/8, 5/15, 5/22, 5/29
