Join Yashobodhi and others for a day of exploration and practice through meditation and reflective writing. We will be using images and metaphors in meditation and follow writing prompts to gently delve deeper into our experience. There will also be a chance to interact with other writers in small breakout groups (sharing your writing is not compulsory!).
This kind of writing is unplanned: just expressing in written words whatever comes up in relation to a series of prompts. We can write anything, and everything that emerges is “right”! It is not about correct grammar or punctuation, it is rather a process of making visible what may often be invisible. It is not about creating a text, but about relating, discovering, and perhaps transforming.
The day consists of two parts which can be attended separately if you wish. We recommend taking part in the whole day, to get the most out of this event!
Yashobodhi has been teaching Buddhism, meditation and mindfulness in different settings for over 15 years. She is also a writer and published a variety of articles and two books. For a number of years she has facilitated reflective writing groups, both for the The Buddhist Centre Online and elsewhere. Yashobodhi is originally from the Netherlands, but has lived and worked in the UK since 2010 and happily continues to do so.
