Don’t forget our Meditation and Writing Workshop and the Memoir Writing Workshop both take place tomorrow in West Hollywood. These workshops would be a great way to escape and get creative for a bit.

Also, our Weekly Creative Writing Workshop this Sunday still has space available (which is rare these days).

Meditation and Writing WorkshopIn this meditation and writing workshop, we combine meditation practice and writing exercises to help spark greater creativity. We will create space to breathe, create, share, reflect and connect with spirit.

For writers of all levels who want to write and connect with spiritual self, this workshop will help us relax and cut through our busy, overly logical minds and find a path to more profound creative inspiration.

Each session begins by learning a meditation together, and we will alternate between that meditation and related writing prompts and exercises. We will draw from different meditative practices each week, such as:

  • Metta (loving-kindness practice)
  • Mindfulness Meditation
  • Breath Practices
  • Visualizations
  • Focusing Practices or
  • Meditations on sound, color, and light. 

We will also take time together to look at how writing and spirit connect across the world’s great religions and read inspiring spiritual writings.

Learning and go deeper into meditation practices we already know and letting these practices spark new creative work. There will be a time to share what you have written (optional) and offer each other positive, supportive feedback.

memoir-writing-workshop-sqPart generative and part critique, this bi-weekly memoir workshop welcomes writers who have already begun a memoir or essay project as well as writers who have a project in mind but have yet to begin writing.

In addition to creating new personal writing, you will also have the option to share and get professional feedback on pages from your memoir or personal essays.

We will also reflect on the work of successful memoir and personal writing through history,  and we will learn ways to remember, discover, and light up our own past and bring our rich memory and experience into our writing. Everyone in this workshop will have the chance to begin a new memoir project or go more deeply into a project already in process. Writers of all levels are welcome in this course.

Happy writing,
