Mindfulness and Creative Writing Day Retreat
‘Opening up to the magic, meaning and mystery of the everyday’
Sunday 21 January, 10.00 am-4.00 pm
What would it mean to connect more deeply with the day to day activities of our lives?
Join Singhamati and Roz for a day of meditation, mindfulness exercises and creative writing that will encourage us to open our hearts and minds to the magic, meaning and mystery of our everyday lives. There will be periods of meditation, (both walking and sitting) and accessible writing exercises to help us uncover our innate, playful creativity. Also an opportunity to share writing we have produced in a supportive group setting (if we would like to).
This retreat is suitable for all levels of experience – no previous writing experience is needed.
Booking is essential, with a minimum number of 8 people to make the day viable and a maximum of 15 places to ensure an intimate space for sharing. To book email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org
Cost: There is no set fee for this event but we encourage you to give a donation to the Buddhist Centre for the day, if you can.
Lunch: Please bring vegan or vegetarian food for our shared buffet lunch.
