Writing is an act of deep observation in the world. The smell in the air at the change of seasons. The mind’s idiosyncrasies. Timeless gesture. When combined, meditation, slow walking, and writing serve as a virtuous feedback loop. Each practice calls forth an awakening to the moment. An image you receive during slow walking finds its way into a poem you write later that day. Insight gleaned in sitting meditation becomes fodder for your memoir.

This fall, spend a day with teacher Sarah Sennott Cyr learning tools to cultivate a mindful writing practice. All experience levels welcome. Bring fast writing pens and notebooks.
