Our lives become more rich and meaningful when we tune into the experience of each moment. This workshop aims to create an environment for each person to become more deeply present through writing and experiences which engage all five senses. Our writing and experiential work will be complimented by the poems and writings of professional writers which engage these ideas in some way. This class is one of exploration and no writing experience is necessary, though seasoned writers and practitioners of meditation are welcome.
