       “It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” – Pablo Picasso


There was a time when creativity was easy—when you were a child, driven by an endless desire to create, and no fear, no judgment, and no internal censor whatsoever.


       The goal of meditative writing is to return you to that time, when finding your voice as a writer was as easy as being yourself, and raw creativity flowed as effortlessly as inspiration.


       You’ll learn to banish writer’s block forever, find inspiration in an instant, and discover the heart of your story and your characters by tapping into your own voice as a writer, and your deepest creative instincts.


Meditative Writing truly is “assisted self-discovery.” For the same reason writers should take acting classes, Meditative Writing helps you get down into your body, to work a scene or character from the inside out. The practice has applications even beyond writing, into directing, pitching, and just being in the world. This class and subsequent practice has been extremely helpful to me in my work.”

– Christine Boylan, Writer, “Leverage,” “Castle,” “Once Upon A Time”
