Mindful Writing Retreat
presented by Donna Strickland

MU Old Alumni Center
Cost $200 (graduate scholarships may be available)
Register by May 21, 2012

As important as writing is to most us in any discipline, it is also often one of the hardest things we do.  If you're like me, you may find that you procrastinate when given a writing assignment, and you may find it hard to complete longer writing projects.  This retreat is intended to address these difficulties by working with issues of motivation and control of writing.  We'll work with "mindfulness" practices, including non-sectarian meditation and mindful movement, in order to help facilitate greater focus.  Each day will include periods of yoga, meditation, and relaxed, mindful writing.  Our intention will be to cultivate writing with greater comfort and fluency.

At this retreat participants may work on any writing they choose.  We have a block of rooms available, meeting space and opportunities to work with professional editors.
