Zen Pen: A Writing, Being & Meditation Retreat
(Fri 23 Feb 17.00 – Mon 26 Feb 11.00)

Booking and payment through Temenos http://www.temenos.org.za

Keep your heart clear and transparent, And you will never be bound. A single disturbed thought Creates ten thousand distractions. (Ryokan)

Time to write, walk, circle the garden, sit amidst blue glass, breathe and be….
What do writing, being and breath share in common? They all bring alive and expand the present moment. They invoke a conversation with ourselves and others. An exchange of energies. Writing is a skill drawn from attention, presence and openness – an organic process rather than a talent.

On this retreat in a sacred space (Temenos) discover the writer inside you. We explore our innate creativity and imagination as we connect writing to mindfulness and bodyfulness. We write and meditate on the many changes and transformations as we journey down the river of our lives. We consider how creativity and imagination steady the boat and how writing helps us dip the oars into dark water so we may navigate the river safely.
The retreat also focuses on how to pay attention, be present in your writing and engage the reader as a creative partner. And source your bliss. Beginners are welcome.
