“Mindfulness,” says Felicia Rose Chavez in the Anti-Racist Writing Workshop “is an energy of awareness, meaning that you are both physically and psychologically planted in the present moment. When you write, you write with your whole body, not rushing or multitasking or compartmentalizing the assignment but rather relinquishing control, surrendering to the creative impulse. “

Whether the snow is falling or it's so warm the sap is rising, we'll spend the morning strengthening our mindfulness through sitting meditation, walking meditation (and perhaps a little gentle stretching or yoga), and writing sessions. Optional writing prompts will be offered. At the close of the morning retreat, we will end our silence with a discussion. There will be an opportunity to share our morning words as well.
