What we're about

The editors of JustThis, the Austin Zen Center's online journal, invite you to join an ongoing Writing Group meeting weekly at the Austin Zen Center. The purpose of the group is to encourage gentle awareness and invite your creativity and responsiveness to arise in the moment. Because Zen isn't about anything, the content of your writing is yours to explore. We provide prompts, but everything is available to you. The sessions consist of meditation, writing, and sharing. We do respond to each other's writing, but we do not critique.

Let's meet up and write!

Austin Zen Center

Our meeting involves writing in response to a prompt, and optional sharing of our words with nurturing friends. We focus on the process of connecting with our present-time responses and putting pen to paper to see what unfolds. Our writing becomes a dynamic practice and an expression of our alive experience in the moment. In addition, our writing on a shared topic both connects us to one another and reminds us that it takes many views to understand our world.
