Undoing Ego through Writing and Meditation is a 5-series workshop with an aim to show us how the way we write can become a meditation. This workshop is meant to unearth natural creativity and tenderness in both seasoned and beginning writers. The way we do this is by training in cooling our inner critic (ego mind). We train by changing the way we see the writing process, becoming a witness instead of a director. In these 5 weeks we will be exploring unique and experimental writing prompts, using various meditation techniques, and sharing honestly about our process.
