The Infinite Field: Meditation and Writing Practice for Liberating Self and Other

Retreats and Closed Groups for Creativity, Contemplation, and Catharsis

The combined practice of meditation and freewriting is a powerful spiritual tool that can help writers and non-writers alike clarify seemingly vague ideas and comprehend the value of their lives with enormous self-compassion; spaciousness; loving inquiry; and an expansive window of welcome for paradox, beauty, and synchronicity.

In my retreats and closed groups, participants will move through two to four meditations, ranging from potent guided visualizations to silent reflections that will set the wheels of creativity in motion. You need not be a writer to enjoy and be enriched by this process. All that is required is a deep desire to experience liberation from the discursive mind, and a willingness to be guided to the small, gentle, still voice within that longs to express its wisdom.

After each meditation, participants will be offered a poem or short piece of writing to contemplate, as well as a writing prompt that allows our inherent creativity to emerge from our in-the-moment experience.

The majority of our time together will be for meditation instruction and writing, but the final minutes will offer room for sharing our experience and writing. My focus on the meditations, poetry, prose, and prompts I choose is liberation from suffering and oppression, as well as a deep connection to awe, wonder, and historically marginalized perspectives.
