Fearless Creativity: A Meditation & Writing Retreat with Susan Piver
April 8–10, 2011
As much as any practice, writing connects us to the undercurrents of wisdom that lie just below the surface of discursive thought. Writing puts us in touch with timely insights, concerns, ideas, and our inherent wakefulness. If you want to know your thoughts and feelings, writing can tell you. If you want to share yourself with others, writing can be your vehicle. And of course, if you long for creative self-expression, writing can give it form. For this program, our tools will be meditation practice, journaling, group discussion, and plenty of personal writing time. We’ll also discuss how to make writing a daily practice, how to approach the fears every writer experiences, and more. Open to writers in all genres, published or unpublished. Introductory meditation instruction will be offered. Please feel free to bring your laptop.
This retreat is also offered as an extended six-day program. Click here.
