[Past Event] Mindful Writing Sessions: Space for your writing practice
21-06-2019 - 23-08-2019
Stillpoint Spaces London
London, EC1R 0AA
Join us for a new iteration of our deep work sessions for writers series, led by psychologist and mindfulness trainer Paul Christelis.
In today’s over-distracted world, creating the time for deep work can be difficult. We know that “the book (or email or poem or article) won’t write itself” but often find it difficult to find the discipline to create uninterrupted mindfully present writing time.
These writing sessions are inspired by Cal Newport's book Deep Work which suggests how we can better focus on our creative ideas in a distracted world.
The rules are simple: mobile devices are left outside - laptops are allowed, but wifi must be turned off. After some mindfulness exercises led by Paul, we will quietly write, simply supported by others quietly writing around us.
These are not traditional writing workshops where your work will be shared. Rather, the sessions offer the space for quiet, mindful, uninterrupted writing amongst colleagues who share the same aim.
These work sessions are free to members of Stillpoint Spaces London.
Non members: £15 a session, or a package of all sessions for £120.
Membership of this group is limited to 8, so please book early.
21st & 28th June
5th, 12th, 19th & 26th July
2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd August
