James Crews Mindfulness & Writing Workshop -- Northshire Bookstore (Manchester, VT)

Mindfulness & Writing

A One-Day Workshop with Poet, James Crews

Event date:

Sunday, July 28, 2019 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

Event address:

4869 Main St

Manchester Center, VT 05255

In this generative writing workshop, we'll examine connections between the practice of meditation/mindfulness and the act of writing fearlessly from the heart. Using poems and other written works as prompts, we will complete several exercises that invite us to pay closer attention to ourselves, our lives, and the world around us as we do our best to define the term, "mindfulness," and what that means for each of us. Though not required, attendees will be invited to share their work via email with each other. Beginners and all skill levels are welcome. You do not need any previous experience with mindfulness or meditation; all you need is an open mind. Email James with any questions you might have: jcrewsjr@gmail.com.
