The workshop begins with an introduction to the practice of meditation through writing. After the introduction, we will engage in writing exercises that explore this mode of bringing ourselves to awareness and peacefulness. This workshop is fun for those who love to journal and helpful for those who would like some tools to help them fall in love with writing. Please bring your favorite tools for writing: beautiful journals, utilitarian spiral notebooks, laptops, and paper napkins are all welcome.
