Guided Meditation & Writing 

I have created an online practice in which you will experience the benefits of my workshops without actually having to be there!  If you meditate and write daily--as laid out in this 31-day meditation & writing series--you will enjoy the same results I have.

 

Benefits of daily meditation & writing---

  • Feel more peaceful & centered

  • Strengthen & enlarge your imagination

  • "Embody" your writing

  • Increase your production of quality work 

  • Heal stored trauma

When writers participate in my workshops they love to write!  It's easy.  We all write together, and we read our writing to each other.  We get instant positive feedback, and this makes everyone want to write more.  Yet writers have told me that, once they return to their daily lives, they have difficulty continuing to write.

I experienced the same thing in my own writing.  I knew how important it was to write daily, yet I had great difficulty getting myself to do it.  Finally, about 10 years ago, I woke up one morning profoundly sad.  I hadn't been writing for about a month and, instead of being angry with myself I was sad.  It felt terrible!  I decided, in that moment, that I had to write every day; there simply could be no other choice for me.  And that is when I began my 1,000-word-a-day fiction-writing practice.  This has served me well. 

Then, in 2018, a workshop member recommended an online daily guided meditation and writing course.  It was offered by Nadia Colburn, and it was called Write From Your Center.  I signed up for this, and began to meditate and write daily, letting Nadia guide me.  I added this practice to my already-existing fiction-writing practice.  I noticed a greater presence in my writing.  It was easier for me to let go and write freely.  My production of poems increased.  My fiction-writing was more productive.

 

I was inspired to create a writing series of my own, using writing prompts from my past 10 years of teaching.  My interest has always been to help people connect with their bodies and their senses in writing, as a way to use and heal their imaginations.  And, with that in mind, I created writing prompts specifically designed to open up people's creativity, bring them back to their bodies, connect them with their physical senses. 

 

Writing prompts I created---

  • Blending the senses--i.e. sight & sound, smell & touch

  • Writing with "opposite" emotions--i.e. grief/ecstasy, love/hate

  • Writing with "opposite" verbs--i.e. allow/forbid, float/sink

  • Making metaphor with body parts--i.e. arm is an eagle, head is a pinball machine

  • Writing with the non-dominant hand

  • Meditating on a color & then writing from that color

These are the kinds of prompts I have paired with 31 guided meditations in this writing series.  The writing practice is similar to physical exercise.  If you want to strengthen your writing muscles you need to use them daily!  Every time you do this meditation and writing practice you will strengthen and enlarge your imagination, and the writing will teach you new techniques.   

If you currently participate in one of my writing workshops, these exercises will help deepen your experience.  If you are writing on your own, you will learn a lot!
