The Gift: A Writing Workshop – Drop-in Course
Tracy Cochran

December 10, 2015
07:00 pm - 09:00 pm

Online registration is now closed.
Walk-in registration is available via cash or check.

“Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity,” writes Simone Weil.  Join us as we spend a day giving our lives the gift of our own attention.

In a safe space, free from judgment and striving and holiday shopping, we will practice mindfulness meditation and writing exercises.  We will explore how writing can be a way to engage with the world, a way of remembering and sharing our unique experience and perspective—our journey towards wisdom.

Everyone is welcome, beginners, previous participants, and professionals.  No one need read aloud.

 

*Registration fee does not include teacher support.

Teacher support: Suggested starting donation is $15 per session but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.  All donations go to support the teacher(s).
