WINTER/SPRING 2017 WRITING PRACTICE


March19
May 7
June 4
 Artspace Buffalo Lofts 

Sundays from 4 to 6

$15 

RSVP patpendleton39@gmail.com


This begins the Winter/Spring season of the 5th year of expressive writing that began at the C.G. Jung Center in 2013 and has carried on since 2015 with a small group of dedicated writers at my residence at Artspace Buffalo Lofts.

"Write the whole truth about the life you know." These words by author Henry Miller describes the essence of the Sunday afternoon writing practice group.
Writers write their truths in a supportive atmosphere using various prompts to initiate timed writing sessions. This approach is based on the methods of Natalie Goldberg, Pat Schneider, and Lawrence Spann...borrowing strongly from the writing practice approach popularized in the books of Natalie Goldberg, beginning with Writing Down the Bones.

No previous experience is required--just bring a notebook and pen.

SIT, WALK, WRITE: A Contemplative Writing Retreat October 23, 2016

Contemplative Writing Retreat October 23, 2016

 
SIT mindfully to experience stillness and silence.


WALK mindfully to connect with the body and ground.


WRITE mindfully to reflect the mind.


LISTEN mindfully to connect with others.


Inspired by Natalie Goldberg's The True Secret of Writing: Connecting Life with Language, I have previously offered this four-hour retreat at the C.G. Jung Center, but for the first time, I will host this event at Shambhala Meditation Group of Buffalo. Registration is required. Please use link at top of page to find out more.
