Mindful Writing Three-Week Series

saturdays december 2,9,&16

10:00am-12:00pm

At People's Food Co-op, 3029 SE 21st Ave., Portland OR

Each class in this three-week Mindful Writing series is stand-alone, although attending all three is encouraged.

December 2: Foundations
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.

December 9: Deepening the Practice
In our second class, we’ll dive more deeply into Mindful Writing. We’ll continue our meditation practice, engage in longer writing sessions, have the opportunity to share our writing in both small and large groups, and learn a more in-depth way of giving feedback.

December 16: New Tools
In our third and final class, we’ll continue deepening our writing and meditation skills, explore the mindfulness practice of “Aimless Wandering” outside, and learn new tools to bring meditation and writing into our daily lives.

Sliding scale $15-35 per class. Class is limited to 10 people. Pre-registration required.

Using Words as Practical Magic

Using Words as Practical Magic

SATURDAY AUGUST 5

9:30AM-12:00PM

At the Life.Art.Being Integrative Arts Festival

How do we learn to listen to our own wisdom? How do we coax our wild and unruly thoughts to the page? How do we use our words to make practical magic and take meaningful action? In this workshop, we’ll explore these questions through the vehicle of Mindful Writing. We’ll learn a basic meditation practice, then delve into writing and feedback sessions. We’ll practice working with fear and resistance and extending compassion to ourselves and others. Bring a notebook and a favorite pen.

$45 early bird price until July 25th.

Limited space, please register in advance.

Listening to Land, Listening to Self

JULY 27-28

10:00AM-4:00PM

At the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology

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'll use writing and meditation 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 basic mindfulness practices, including walking meditation outside, then delve into writing sessions, using simple techniques to bring awareness to our experience as we write. This workshop is open to all, and perfect for those who want to bring fresh awareness to their writing and have fun in the process!
