Are you curious about mindfulness and creativity for authenticity and growth?

Have you ever wanted to record your experiences, write a book or have a safe space to support more long-term writing work?

This monthly writing group explores the powerful and playful connection between mindfulness, meditation, personal narrative, journal or memoir writing. The purpose of this group will be to provide on-going consistency to support more long-term work.

The group will:

• Support your personal or creative developments

• Provide safe space and time for quiet reflection and meditation

• Empower insightful writing practice

• Give structure to your writing

• Nurture connection and community

• Offer thoughtful, positive feedback

Learn creative and wellness based practices to:

• Calm the chattering mind

• Face the inner critic and judge

• Write for clarity, personal discovery or a larger project

• Tap into your authentic voice

This workshop is both for beginners to mindfulness and writing and those who have been

dabbling and practicing the art of writing. The group is explorative, generative and

revisionary, and is especially helpful for those who have not written for a while or have

difficulty finding time for their own writing or self-exploration.

We will start our sessions in quiet meditative reflection or creative visualization.

Followed by writing prompts to write in either stream of conscious, poetry, memoir or

whatever way supports your desire and creativity.

You will all have an option to share your work, experiment with revision and

composition techniques and explore new modes, including photography, poetry and

collage.

Each participant will have a chance to schedule a one-on-one meeting with the instructor

to discuss works, or to have deeper conversation regarding writing produced during the

workshop.
