Summer Retreat at Green Gulch Farm

by Catherine Gammon

A four-day writing workshop retreat at San Francisco Zen Center’s Green Gulch Farm …

Writing As A Wisdom Project, August 15-19, led by Catherine Gammon, combines a relaxed meditation schedule and teachings from the Zen tradition with the practice of imaginative writing.

Engaging playfully with language as an opportunity to receive, express, study, and reveal our own presently arising body and mind, we will write together from prompts, and read aloud, listen, and respond to one another’s words. Our writings and responses are explorations, and our conversations are based in imaginative and emotional insight rather than craft or editorial critique. Our time together will be intimate and playful, and will offer everyone opportunities for participation and discussion.

Our daily schedule will include meditation, dharma teaching, writing and group discussion, as well as free time for rest, reading, and walking in the farm and garden, to nearby Muir Beach, and in the surrounding hills.

Full registration details here.

Writing As A Wisdom Project will also be offered in Pittsburgh on June 30 at Stillpoint in Lawrenceville, at Marblehead Zen Center in Marblehead, MA on July 15, and at Brooklyn Zen Center, on July 22.
