...with Tunde Nemeth and Heather Anderson

Writing, like meditation, is a solitary act that benefits greatly from practice with others.

Come join us in exploring what happens when meditation gets involved with writing. This workshop draws on Natalie Goldberg’s landmark book, Writing Down the Bones, and on work Tunde has been doing with the Shambhala contemplative arts teacher Miriam Hall.

The format is simple: a little sitting practice, writing practice, an opportunity to share, if you wish, in a safe space (not for critiquing, just for compassionate listening).

The workshop is offered in English, but you are most welcome to write and to sha...re in French as well. Writing cues will be offered, or you can write about a topic of your choice.

Open to all. (You don’t have to be a "writer.") Bring your favorite pen and a notebook. No meditation or writing experience necessary.
