Writing As Meditation Workshop

Learn how to align yourself with the moment and to express the experience with lucidity. The bridge between writing the experience and the actual experience is the imagination. Through practicing the
Creating Space For Breath meditation, the energy within the imagination contracts and expands allowing enough space around the experience so that it can breathe into the fullness of itself. Through the practice of mindful writing as an extension of the meditation, the words that embody the experience will begin to surface and find their way onto the page. The act of mindful writing is an act of letting go and creates a release throughout the entire body and mind, allowing personal healing. In this 3 1/2 hour workshop we will discuss the nature of meditation and how to develop a personal practice. We will practice the
Creating Space For Breath meditation and mindful writing. Then we will share our experience and/or writing with one another. This workshop is for everyone interested in authentic communication and is offered for $40; however no one will be turned away for lack of funds. This workshop will be from 10:30am to 2:00pm. Please bring a sack lunch, paper and pencil/pen. click here to see the websites:

Testimonials: "Tara Ford's Writing as Meditation Workshop on November 13th was wonderful. I've written in various forms for many years, and I've also had a meditation practice (on and off, mostly off) for a long time. But I'd never before had the experience of blending the two. It was such a constructive process, enabling me to ta...ke the images and sensations that arose during the various meditation exercises and move right into writing them, without too much editorial thought. I feel like the workshop jump-started my writing, in a new and fresh way, and I intend to continue working with the techniques I've learned. Thanks, Tara!" “Tara’s workshop was unlike any other I’ve taken. She has a capacity for attuned listening and responding that helps students become more sensitive to their own experiences. This new level of sensitivity enriched my creative expression in a way that gave more vitality to my writing (and my life!).” "Tara Ford has extraordinary gifts. Through her creative and meditative practices, she goes deep to discover new insights and levels of awareness. Tara has the ability to bring others into this consciousness through her images, her writings and her teaching. Her passion lies in finding connections. She is remarkably articulate and clear - sometimes deeply inspiring and sometimes playful and engaging. Her writing and artwork go to the edges of language and symbol creating a new continuum of experience and discovery. Tara goes straight to the point and understands that most often, the point lies in the area beyond language and culture and into mystical experience without pre-conditions or mediation. " “Her intensity and creative intelligence was unmistakable. From the start she had an intuitive insight and a drive which made working with her exciting and rewarding. Tara was always pushing herself to explore new territory and at the same time remained true to her unique vision.”
