Class Description

Do you have a hard time quieting your mind, tuning out distractions, or thinking clearly and creatively? Mindfulness can help. Studies show that mindfulness—noticing what's happening in the present moment without judgment—leads to greater calm, clarity, and resilience, all powerful building blocks for creative work. In this workshop, Grub instructor and clinical social worker Deborah Sosin will introduce you to the fundamentals of mindfulness, share with you the latest research, then lead the group in a series of writings and mindfulness activities designed to open up those creative channels. You'll leave with practical skills and useful strategies for incorporating mindfulness into your writing life.
