Mindfulness & Writing: A Two-Week Online Workshop with James Crews

Purchase Ticket Here  - Tickets are also available in our store.
In this online writing workshop, we'll examine connections between the practice of meditation/mindfulness and the act of writing fearlessly from the heart. Using quotes and other written works as prompts, we will complete several exercises each week 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 it means for each of us. The instructor will provide weekly modules, including optional videos and additional readings, and he will be available for a phone consultation with each student at the end of the course about the body of work they have produced. Though not required, attendees will be invited to share their work via discussion boards and/or email. Beginners and all skill levels are welcome. You do not need any previous experience with mindfulness, meditation or online courses; all you need is a reliable internet connection and an open mind. Email James Crews with any questions: jcrewsjr@gmail.com.
