Deep Work Mindful Writing Sessions
In today’s over-distracted world, creating the time for deep work can be difficult. 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 just the writing oasis that you need.
How to join
Single session - £15 (plus any ticket fees)
Monthly subscription - £33 available here on our Stillpoint Spaces Community (more below)
Date: weekly on Fridays
Time: 2:00pm - 5:00pm BST, 3:00pm - 6:00pm CEST, 9:00am - 12:00pm EDT
The facilitated online 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 short open reflection 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.
Members of these sessions are asked to minimise all disruptions: turning off phones and closing all internet windows except the Zoom session.
The groups are guided by a psychologist and mindfulness trainer Paul Christelis, and creative writer Sebastian Kola-Bankole.
