Workshop Overview

This workshop offers tools to engage deeply with one's own soul, nurturing one's presence through contemplative somatic writing. By the end of this workshop, you will have connected with a true secret of writing, which lies in showing up for deep practice and sincere effort of open acceptance. Dive into a moment-by-moment relationship with silent sitting and writing practice. Learn by doing—sitting meditation, writing, reading, and listening deeply to yourself and others.
