Postponed: Deep Work Mindful Writing Sessions
In a wish to take care of each other and protect the vulnerable groups from the spreading of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), we will postpone Deep Work Mindful Writing Sessions.
Further information will be available soon.
“We fill our days with ongoing connection, denying ourselves time to think and dream.” ― Sherry Turkle
Join us for distraction-free intensive writing sessions where mobile phones are left outside and wifi is switched off, creating the space you need to focus on your creative work. Inspired by Cal Newport’s Deep Work and mindfulness practices, we offer the opportunity to learn and apply these principles to enable you to focus on your writing. Whether you are writing creatively, academically, or for other reasons, this might be the just the writing oasis that you need.
These facilitated work sessions start with a guided meditation to enable you to focus and create discipline with your attention. We will then work individually on our projects for the remainder of the session, followed by a time for open reflection and sharing of how the session was for you.
These are not traditional writing workshops where your work will be shared. Rather, the sessions offer the space for quiet, mindful, uninterrupted writing amongst peers who share the same desire to work with increased focus, improve creative abilities, and to discipline the mind to ward off distractions and be present.
Deep Work Mindful Sessions will take place from 14 to 17h, on the following eight Fridays: March 6, 13, 20, & 27; April 3, 17 & 24, May 8.
