    Beacon Hill Friends House (bhfh.org) presents: Writing as a Spiritual Practice Series with Emily Savin


    ** UPDATE: This series is now FULL! **


    DESCRIPTION:


    This is an ongoing Writing as a Spiritual Practice workshop series with Emily Savin — with 4 sessions as one group on Saturday mornings in the month of October. 


    Gather in a safe, meditative, encouraging environment for two hours of creative exploration. These writing workshops, conducted in the Amherst Writers & Artists method, offer an experience that is both grounded and playful, both individual and communal. 


    These workshops welcome reluctant writers, confident writers, people who don’t like to sit still, people who don’t like to move, religious people, spiritual people, people who kind of cringe at the word “spiritual,” and you. 


    Writing with the same group across several sessions will allow us to grow and deepen as a community together. We’ll have a little more time together — each session will be 2 ½ hours with no orientation — and we’ll be able to try out some different exercises and formats. 


    Things to know:

    • This series is sequential, and registration covers your attendance at all 4 sessions.

    • You will never be pressured to share your writing with others.

    • Please come prepared with something to write with and something to write on

    • ACCESSIBILITY: We are able to provide automated closed captioning at this event.

    Workshop dates/times: 

    October 10, 17, 24, & 31 | 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM (ET)


    We only have 8 seats available for this series. You must attend all of the workshops in this series, you cannot attend just one or just a few.
