Wild Heart Writing: Allowing the Creative Through Zen

August 16 -20, 2015 (Sunday-Thursday) at Tassajara Zen Mountain Center

No previous experience necessary, although the ability to speak, read, and write English is essential.

Liberate the writer within and discover your creative voice in a supportive group setting.

Wild Heart Writing brings to light the stories we want (and need) to tell. Blending mindfulness with writing practice, we push past ego into creativity. Narratives come alive in a safe group setting. Writing becomes effortless by using meditation, visualizations, poetry, simple movement and fun props like word dominoes and found objects. Suited to novices and experts alike, it’s a way to discover the writer within, jumpstart any writing project, or add tools to your wordsmith’s belt. It’s a shortcut to beginner’s mind, where we “allow” writing – rather than “doing” it. Come befriend and share the remarkable artist within yourself.
