Meditation Workshop for Writers

JP member Dwain Wilder is teaching a workshop at Writers & Books that discusses the important that meditation can play in the writing process.

Meditation Workshop for Writers

1 Saturday, noon-4 p.m., Saturday April 6
$50 W&B members / $60 general public
Instructor: Dwain Wilder

Meditation can be a great resource for writers. The deep silence, from which surprising creativity can spring, is readily reached in meditation. The first part of this class will be a short orientation to meditation, followed by sitting and walking meditation sessions. Following the meditation, the second part of the class will be exploring how writers stimulate each other by writing poetry together. No experience in poetry is necessary. We will write poems outside, on the sidewalks in front of Writers & Books, weather permitting. Otherwise, we will use a collection of whiteboards and chalkboards. Please bring warm clothing for outside activity. And wear loose-fitting clothing for meditation. Meditation cushions and mats will be provided by the Rochester Zen Center. Those who cannot sit on cushions will be shown how to sit effectively in a chair.
