Stillpoint Zen Community will host Writing As A Wisdom Project
9 am to 5 pm on Saturday March 18. Please join us!


Combining meditation in the Zen tradition with the practice of imaginative writing, this workshop invites intimate and creative study of the mind. Engaging playfully with language, we write together from prompts and read aloud, listen, and respond to one another’s words. Our writings and responses are explorations, and our conversations are based in imaginative insight rather than craft or critique. The day is appropriate for participants at any level of literary or meditation experience. Meditation guidance will be offered as needed.

Please bring paper and pens to write with, even if you are accustomed to composing on a keyboard (and leave your computer at home). Please arrive by 8:45 to get settled, so that we can begin promptly at 9:00. We will take a break for lunch and everyone is encouraged to bring something (vegetarian) to share with others. The day will end at 5:00.

A contribution of $40 to Stillpoint ($30 for members) is suggested. This offering is to cover use of the space and to support Stillpoint. Any additional offering for teaching is welcome, but not necessary.

If you have any questions please leave a comment here and I’ll email a response.
