The Infinite Field Writing & Meditation Sangha

Eight-Week Open Sessions, 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 eight-week sessions and half-day retreats, participants move through a variety of meditations, ranging from potent guided visualizations to silent reflections that will set the wheels of creativity in motion. During sessions and retreats, 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.

The closed groups are for BIPOC womxn who are interested in building community through their writing and meditation practice, so the space is more intimate and includes time to settle in, share your voice, and connect with your fellow participants.

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. Given my own training as a mindfulness meditation facilitator in the Insight meditation tradition, my focus with respect to 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.

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 churning of the discursive mind, and a willingness to be guided to the small, gentle, still voice within that longs to express its wisdom.

What to bring:

A pen, a journal, a comfortable area to sit or lie down, and a spirit of gentle curiosity.

Testimonials from participants:
