Credits: 3

""" In a crowded, thumbs-up/thumbs-down culture, this course opens a space for observing without judgement and risking without egoistic protection. Unfolding through three phases, the course starts with meditation instruction and practice and culminates with a creative project that conveys the student’s experience of approaching writing through the lens of mindfulness. Readings range from Pema Chodron to Danez Smith, and writing assignments include journal entries, free-writes, cut-ups, haiku, personal essay, travelogue, contemplations on a topic, as well as the final project."""
