Workshop at Jekyll Island on September 10th, 2016.
Combining writing with mindfulness-based meditation and biofeedback skill training can enhance creative and emotional processing and help you deepen relationships to yourself, your clients, and others. This workshop, which will be geared toward individuals with any level of meditation and writing experience, from none to advanced, will provide a framework for adding these tools to your repertoire. It will offer strategies for dealing with stumbling blocks that you and your clients commonly face during the course of writing, and ways to turn these obstacles into teachable moments when they do arise. Connections will be made with various types of writing such as professional blogging or journaling, along with other forms of creative and personal writing. Through experiential learning, group dialogue, and other modalities, participants will learn techniques from positive psychology, mindfulness practices, neuroscience, and creative thinking that they can apply themselves and share with clients. These techniques can help develop skills to calm the mind, develop a mindful brain, regulate mind/body states, develop trust with the subconscious, and explore inner resources for writing.
