a meditative writing practice: turning trials into teachings
Honor your story with meditation.
We are all experts in our unique life stories. In a meditative writing practice, two different, yet congruent, roles present themselves. The first role is as a student of ourselves—sitting in guided meditation and visualization, practicing stream of consciousness, and processing topics that arise from within our body, our mind, and our heart space. The second is as our own omniscient narrator, a curator of the nuanced realizations, choices, work, and parts that have shaped us into the sacred self, and forever student, that we embody right here and now.
During this course, we learn about the ways that we can honor even the smallest parts of our stories by creating compilations of written mini-meditations to preserve, teach, share, and honor the path of our continued evolution. Different from memoir and essay, meditations seek to tell shorter stories, allowing readers to quickly digest the crux of the teaching while also leaving space between these guiding words for open translation and interpretation. All writing is done together in class. Four weeks of daily email meditations will be provided for optional close reading.
We are offering a 20 percent discount to educators, youth workers, and healthcare professionals. Please use the code MEDITATE when registering.

“The daily meditation writing format gives us the unique opportunity to reflect on the nuances of our life stories and experiences; in this way, and each time with new eyes, we can revisit our joys and sorrows, the big events and the small, quiet, fleeting moments and honor them by writing through the lens of lessons learned and growth gained.”

Our organization was founded to help amplify the voices of those who are often not heard—including Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQIA+ individuals, and other historically marginalized groups. We have witnessed how writing and sharing stories has the power to effect change by generating greater love, compassion, and empathy in the listener. In all of our programs, we provide an inclusive, supportive, and welcoming environment. We do not tolerate writing that perpetuates harmful stereotypes or fuels hate. Failure to align with our philosophy can result in your removal from class.
