Level: For Everyone
Adult (18+)
12 seats max
In this three hour seminar, we’ll explore the many connections between meditation and creativity, with an emphasis on the numerous ways that an on-going practice can shape your life and improve your writing.

We’ll learn the foundations of Mindfulness meditation, complete two short practices, and have a lively discussion about navigating the ups and downs of the writing life using awareness.
Whether you’re just feeling stuck in your writing, or would like a creative reboot, you’ll find plenty of inspiration in this session to energize your work.
This class is open to all writers and meditators, whether new or experienced.

Maria Mutch is currently in the Vipassana (Mindfulness) teacher-training program under Erin Sharaf, through All That Matters Yoga in Wakefield, RI. She is the author of Know the Night (a memoir), When We Were Birds (short fiction), and Molly Falls to Earth (an upcoming novel).

This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.
