Workshop Overview

What does the land tell us when we truly listen? How does a river, honeysuckle, or clear-cut forest affect our bodies and minds? In this workshop, we will use writing to explore these questions and help us wake up to the wisdom that arises when we listen deeply to ourselves or a place. We’ll learn mindfulness practices, including walking meditation outside, then delve into writing sessions, using simple tools to bring compassionate awareness to ourselves and our writing. You will leave with the beginnings of fresh pieces and new tools to inspire your creative practice.
