Mindful Writing
Using Words as Practical Magic

with Rebecca Jamieson


Saturday August 5th, 2017, 9:30 am – 12:00 pm
Be Space @ Vibrant Studios, 1532 SW Jefferson Street
How do we learn to listen to our own wisdom? How do we coax our wild and unruly thoughts to the page? How do we use our words to make practical magic and take meaningful action? In this workshop, we’ll explore these questions through the vehicle of Mindful Writing. We’ll learn a basic meditation practice, then delve into writing and feedback sessions. We’ll practice working with fear and resistance and extending compassion to ourselves and others. Bring a notebook and a favorite pen.
Limited space, register in advance. Prices valid through July 25.
