Writing Meditation Class (Session 1 of 4)
February 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Around the world and throughout history, naming our human experience is often a first step in transforming it, on personal levels and more broadly,” writes UU minister Rev. Karen Hering in Writing to Wake the Soul. In this class we will discover how spontaneous writing can bring insight, creativity, and well-being, and why it is a technique being utilized in hospitals, mental health facilities and even churches.
Each session will introduce a topic, writing prompts and techniques. Time for writing will be interspersed with readings, reflection, voluntary sharing or silence. We will draw from a range of resources, like Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way, Writing to Awake the Soul, and material from Carver College of Medicine’s The Examined Life Conference.
No need to be a writer. Just bring a willingness and curiosity. This is an opportunity in the cold, inactivity of winter days, to awaken to your inner voice and to the richness of the world around you. You may experience how a regular practice can have a positive influence in your life and with the people around you.
This class will be led by our Community Minister, Rev. Lois Cole, and will meet from 7-8:30 pm on Thursdays, February 6, 13, 20, 27 in the Maple Room.
