Through daily sitting, writing, and listening, you will learn how to deepen your attention and create a space for your writing. Writing meditation can be a powerful way to bring the active mind in closer alignment with the mind of meditation. This course will help you develop tools and insights for overcoming habitual mind states, self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors. After about only one week you will feel yourself opening up to others and to your creativity and imagination.
Each day you will be introduced to one concept or theme that allows you to confront any doubts or judgements about yourself, and to overcome obstacles to happiness and self-awareness. You will be amazed at how a daily writing meditation practice helps you to know and trust yourself more and become more compassionate toward others. Through clinical research, James Pennebaker, author of Opening Up: The Healing Power of Expressing Emotions, discovered that writing makes people happier, healthier and less anxious. All you need for this course is a quiet space, a notebook and a pen.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM THE COURSE
The first two weeks of the course (Or 14 days) include a meditation followed by a writing exercise, while the final week (7 days) integrates the two practices as you begin to discover how both can enliven and enrich the other.
