mindfulnessLet’s face it, stress is simply part and parcel of the writer’s life. But sometimes stress can be a serious obstacle to your writing goals, your work-life balance, and your creative process. Fortunately, mindfulness practices—ancient techniques validated and adapted through modern scientific research—are available to help you transform stress from a tourniquet into a valuable writer’s tool.

In this workshop, certified mindfulness trainer Mike Kimball will (1) introduce participants to core principles of mindfulness meditation and mindful awareness and (2) teach them some tried-and-true mindfulness skills for managing stress and inviting creativity.
