Looking at your image in a clear stream, you answer the question by your very presence.

In this workshop we will explore the connection between writing and meditation. We write and meditate on the many changes and transformations we experience as we journey along the river of our lives. We consider how creativity steadies the boat and how writing helps us dip the oars into dark water so we may navigate the river safely. Writing opens us to the moment. It’s as close as pulse and breath. Come and magnify your sense of aliveness and presence in this safe space.
