This workshop combines writing and attending to the natural world as practices that can help both with creativity and well-being.Whether you are seeking to generate new work, find the ways writing and mindfulness can combine to promote well-being, or wanting to find the shape of a project already underway, this workshop welcomes you. We’ll talk about ways to take the approach offered in the session and adapt them to your ongoing writing life. We’ll be inspired in our work by short writings, mindfulness practices, and exploration of the natural world. No experience (writing or mindfulness) is necessary.
