Writing Compassion: Half-day Workshop on 2/15

Friends, I’m excited to announce the first of several upcoming workshops in 2014!

Compassion: to be with, feel with, suffer with

“Without compassion, we will never know anyone or anything, not even our own story. Too much judgment, too many ideas and attitudes will stand in the way of the fundamental principle that we are similar to, connected with, and part of everything else.” - Deena Metzger, from Writing for Your Life

When: Saturday, February 15th, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
(with 30-45 min. lunch break)

Where: George: Center for Community; 2212 NE 125th Street; Seattle, WA 98125

Cost: $50-$60 (sliding scale); one “pay-what-you-can” scholarship available.

Complete registration details below.

If you seek to create more space in your life for contemplation, or if you have a desire to write, come join us for an inspiring day of inner exploration. In this workshop, we will explore the role of compassion in our lives through a series of free-writing exercises. As we practice writing and listening from a safe place of non-judgment and openness, we will delve into the intimate terrain of our hearts, including: the many ways in which we love and suffer, the people we care for, and the people we struggle to forgive. Participants will be encouraged (but no one is required) to share from their writing, and no prior writing experience is necessary. Brief meditations and resources for furthering your compassionate writing practice will be provided. All are welcome.
