Mindful Writer's Sitting Group

Amy Spies

Amy Spies

2/18/2018 1:30 PM 3:30 PM (1st & 3rd Sunday )  at  Santa Monica Main Center, (1430 Olympic Blvd., Santa Monica, CA, 90404) (Map It)

Mindful Writer's Sitting Group is an exciting new practice group at InsightLA that explores the use of mindfulness within the context of creativity and writing. 

Led by Amy Spies, an experienced practitioner of mindfulness meditation as well as a professional writer/producer with credits spanning over 30 years of work in television, film and other media outlets, this group will explore the nuance of writing from the deeply connected space of mindfulness. 

Our practice group will consist of: 
-Mindfulness Meditation practice. 
-Open Sharing. 
-Creative writing exercises. 
-Sharing of individual written work and developing projects.
 

Please note that this is NOT a writing class. There will be space to explore our own work and share, however, this should not be construed as anything other than a safe place to explore one's own connection to the "muse." 

We will meet twice a month on Sunday afternoons from 1:30pm-3:30pm. Please refer to this page or our InsightLA calendar to confirm each meeting and location.
