Four Saturdays, 2 – 4 pm PT

A daily writing practice and a consistent meditation practice have the power to ground and center us during difficult times. Writing gives us perspective and helps us make sense of the world. Mindfulness teaches us how to make space for the joy as well as the fear.

This 4-week class invites participants of all experience levels to delve deeply into both practices.

Each class will begin with a guided meditation or mindfulness exercise designed to help us develop the resources to cope in times of crisis, as well as nourish our creativity. These mindfulness sessions will be followed by a burst of in-class free writing—what Natalie Goldberg calls "writing practice."

We’ll share our work in small groups—and with the group at large—in a safe and supportive environment. Most importantly, by the end of the four weeks, everyone will have developed the tools—and the inspiration—to cultivate their own daily meditation and writing practices.

Every participant in the class series will be given a one month’s membership in the daily writing app, Creative Caffeine Daily (a $40 value). Creative Caffeine Daily uses daily prompts and weekly partners to motivate and inspire writers. Find out more at Creative Caffeine Daily.
