Meditation and Writing Drop in Class
I will be offering a drop in meditation and writing class every other month. If you are interested in the intersection of meditation and writing, of creativity, compassion, and connection, this could be for you. Registration is based on a first come, first serve basis.
When: April 18, 2017, 6-8pm (Theme: Kind Speech - How We Talk to Ourselves)
June 27, 2017, 6-8pm (Theme: Kind Speech - Communicating with Others)
How We Talk to Ourselves
When someone close to you is facing a challenge, it’s easy to offer comfort and care. But when you’re in distress, you’re not as kind. Why? Come transform the negative self-chatter into words that more accurately reflect your experience. Through guided mindfulness meditation and compassionate reflective journaling, discover the kind voice inside that has the power to heal.
Communicating with Others
The poet Mark Nepo said, “In the practice of our days, to listen is to lean in, softly, with a willingness to be changed by what we hear.” But who has time? Instead of listening and leaning in, we often crash into each other. How do we slow down and become good listeners? How can we communicate with kindness? Through guided mindfulness meditation and compassionate reflective journaling, come discover your capacity for kind speech with others.
