Mindful Writing (Winter 2019)

Registration is now wait list only. We encourage you to register onto the wait list and we will contact you if a space becomes available. 


The Body Tells the Story
Registration Deadline: February 18th

We are often in our heads, distracted and not present for our lives as they are happening. We are disembodied. When we become disconnected from our bodies, we can become disconnected from our truest self and our creativity. Our bodies hold our memories, our experiences, and are the way to our inner life and our unique ideas. Spend a day reconnecting with your body and the stories it has to tell through meditation and writing exercises. Share your experiences and words in a safe, fun, and supportive environment. We will be writing by hand, so please remember to bring pen and paper. No prior writing or meditation experience required. 


Date:Saturday, February 23, 2019
Time:9:30 am - 4:00 pm
Location:Ralston Center (University City)
Facilitator: Susan Barr-Toman
