Sit, Walk, Write: A Contemplative Writing Retreat

August 4, 2018 9 am-1 pm

with Shastri Ellen Rook

Inspired by Natalie Goldman's recent book The True Secret of Writing: Connecting Life with Language, join us for a morning meditation, movement and writing retreat. Everyone is welcome, new and experienced meditators, aspiring writers, established writers, and writers of any genre. Meditation instruction will be available at 9 am for anyone new to meditation.

We'll spend the morning in silence as we practice sitting meditation, exploring our genuine, awake hearts, mindful movement through walking meditation (and perhaps a little gentle stretching or yoga) and writing sessions. Optional writing prompts will be offered. At the close of the morning retreat, we will end our silence with a discussion. There will be an opportunity to share our morning words as well.
