AZC Zen Writing
Every Tuesday 7 – 8:30 pm.
Free (suggested 5.00 donation gratefully accepted). Our meeting involves a short meditation, thirty minutes of writing in response to a prompt, and sharing writing (for those who want to share). For a little over an hour each Tuesday evening, members of this group focus on the process of connecting with their present experience and putting pen to paper to see what unfolds. Rather than being another thing to “get right,” writing becomes a dynamic practice and an expression of our alive experience in the moment. Read more...
