Expand your creativity with this fun, mid-day group!

Creative writing reflecting the depths of the present will be invoked with chair yoga practices, contemplative walking, discussions of illuminating texts, and short seed writings: here and now praises, revelations, illuminations, insights, transformations, momentary flashes, testimonies, daily gratitudes… Open up your existing writing or embark on the unexplored with these contemplative practices. All levels of writers are welcome.
