Mindful Writing: Foundations

This is the first class in a three-week series. 

This three-week class will ground you in writing and meditation practice in a compassionate community. Make friends with yourself and your writing, work with fear and resistance, give and receive supportive feedback, and create fresh new work. Open to all.

Taking all three classes is recommended, but if you're only able to attend one or two, you are still very welcome. Sliding scale $15-35 per class, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Pre-registration required.

In our first class, we’ll lay a good foundation so that we can fully show up for ourselves, each other, and our writing. We’ll create supportive group guidelines, learn to meditate, engage in writing together, and practice a simple yet powerful way of giving feedback.
