FULL – Meditation In An Emergency – Workshop with Betsy Fagin

In this practical class, we will be exploring the present moment– lived, bodily experience– within and through the vehicle of writing. Utilizing a variety of generative writing exercises, meditation practices and discussion, this 5-week class invites participants to anchor in the body, the breath, sound and sensation and to translate this embodiment into their writing practices. The focus of this class is cultivating mindful awareness and generating new material. Previous meditation experience is not required.

This workshop is now full. To be added to the waitlist, email Laura at lh@poetryproject.org
