Meditation and Writing

Fall 2019

Taught By: Lisa Freedman

Section: A

CRN: 4107

Credits: 1

This five-week course offers a haven for creative people in the midst of our noisy, screen-filled city.We meditate and develop our ability to notice more and to stay open to all that arises. We bring attention to our breath, to relevant works of art, to texts, and to our own words. As we practice not judging, we make room for our writing to surprise us. As poet Denise Levertov says in “Making Peace”: “peace…can’t be imagined before it is made/can’t be known except/in the words of its making.” Other readings will include Allen Ginsberg, Claudia Rankine, Fanny Howe, Pema Chodron, the I Ching, and more. Everyone welcome. No writing or meditation experience needed. Limited to 12 students.
