Unlocking the Muse: Meditation and Creativity

Unlock your muse and tap into your authen­tic writer’s voice through the prac­tice of dif­fer­ent types of med­i­ta­tion and reflec­tion exer­cis­es. Learn how to con­nect with the cre­ativ­i­ty of the human mind and write from this open heart/​mind place. We will learn how to use med­i­ta­tion to release writer’s block; write from the heart/​mind with­out cen­sor­ship and dis­cov­er how to access our cre­ativ­i­ty. This will be our basis to write poet­ry and prose. Knowl­edge of med­i­ta­tion is not need­ed, just an open­ness to sit, reflect and be guid­ed into dif­fer­ent med­i­ta­tive jour­neys to help unleash our inner cre­ativ­i­ty and free us from writer’s block.
