Seeing the red plum
In the blue bowl
It is impossible to die.
Writing is a way to become deeply intimate with yourself and the world. Every life is a work of fiction, and in this workshop we shall use writing as a tool and poetry as an inspiration to wake up from the stories we tell ourselves into the truth of our present experience. Alternating writing sessions with group dialogue and meditation periods, we will return to our senses and listen, see and touch in concrete ways that bring us more present to ourselves, more permeable to each other and more intimate with the life that lives in everything.
What You Will Learn
To use beginner’s mind as the starting point for all writing
To recognize the mythic, non-personal dimension of your own stories
To let the world speak to you through your senses
To open to what is already here
To speak and listen from the silence
