Join me for a meditative approach to developing your work, whether you’re writing memoir, fiction, creative nonfiction or poetry. This workshop teaches writers how to drop into the present moment with the kind of curiosity and concentration that allows you to make deep discoveries and find new connections between ideas formerly thought unrelated,* and to access material from your own life experience to share in profound and powerful ways on the page. This course is for writers of all stages of evolution; whether you’ve been dreaming of writing but haven’t quite put pen to page just yet, or you’ve been at this for some time.
IN THIS RETREAT YOU WILL:
- Learn simple ways of deepening your powers of concentration to support creativity and flow
- Learn to become more aware of the ever changing river of thoughts and emotions which connect with your life-narrative this understanding your thoughts, words, and actions with greater clarity ( unpacking cause and effect)
- Identify life events which have turned you in some way, shaping your choices and motivations, and how they might be used for story
- Explore gentle movement and meditation as ways for developing greater awareness and compassion that soothe the heart and open your writing
Each of us has unique gifts, experiences and stories longing to be made manifest. Please join us for a day of nurturing support in a safe, compassionate environment for you and your writing. Light vegetarian lunch will be provided. If you have specific dietary concerns, please let me know. We will do what we can.
