Enter the Garden 

 A 6 Month CREATIVE Writing Journey

 

Here’s how it works:

 

 

Weekly writing alone together sessions  2 hours

Each session begins with a meditation to relax and settle into the mood to write. Then after a check-in, we go to the page, inspired by a prompt from the Gates of Loving Inquiry—nourishing qualities of attention and engagement. Then we read our words and receive feedback from Ahava and others in the group. 

 

Monthly group editing sessions.   3 hours

Each month we listen more closely to our own and each other’s words, identify themes emerging, explore techniques for editing and revising, and ask curious questions to encourage further exploration of craft, style and form. 

 

Final Group Anthology & Peerformance

Each of us will work on completing a series of pieces of writing that we feel good about.  

Toward the end of our journey, we will also organize a spoken word  “peerformance” 

with an audience of invited guests.
