Mindful Writing Workshop
 
with Tracy Cochran
 
Saturday June 22nd, 2019 | 10:00am – 4:00pm
 

 
Join us as we combine mindfulness meditation with short writing exercises geared toward personal reflection, discovering our ways of being heroic, including relaxing and letting go.

Creating a safe space together, free from judgment and striving, we will explore how mindfulness can bring us to life, leading us to our own insight and wisdom.

Everyone is welcome. Participants are not required to share their work.

New York Insight Meditation Center is offering a new structure for registration. Members receive 15% off of the Sustaining Rate via a code provided in the membership email confirmation.

NYI is committed to ensuring that our programs are available to all, regardless of ability to pay. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. No financial assistance application is needed when registering for a program.

We offer new sliding scale fees, and ask that you choose the highest fee you are able to afford based on your financial means. The Sustaining rate represents the actual program operating cost. If you can afford this level or higher, you assist our efforts to offer reduced rates and support ongoing financial assistance.
