Contemplative Writing and Mindfulness Classes
Contemplative writing is a self-compassion practice that allows one to explore who we are, what we need, what we want. This class allows one to write in any form / genre. This course will centre around prompts and timed writing exercises. You will be actively writing during the class time. Contemplative writing serves to quiet and free individuals from the inner critic and replaces it with a writing practice that is joyful, creative, and engaging; a stream of consciousness flow.
Hidden thoughts and feelings often lay dormant in our minds. A wonderful way to see them clearly and to examine their many dimensions is through contemplative writing. I will lead you through dynamic writing prompts which will enable a connected and embodied image-based experience. Through reflective and mindful writing practice you will explore thoughts, feelings, personal and more global insights.
Mindfulness allows us to practice the art of creating space for ourselves — space to think, space to breathe. Mindfulness creates space between ourselves and our reactions.
I limit the class to six participants. Classes run for 8 weeks typically on Tuesday evenings for 90 minutes. I teach this class 4 x a year. I offer both an introductory class and an intermediate level class where we build upon and go deeper in to contemplative writing. Please contact me for more information.
The next set of classes will begin Tuesday evenings starting October 26th to December 14th from 7:45pm - 9:15pm weekly on Zoom.
