Elevated Awareness – Engaging Creativity Through Mindfulness with Nicola Bentley
Saturday June 18, 2022, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. | In-person at Whistler Public Library or online
For writers and readers spring offers budding ideas, new insights, and a fresh energy to creating or enjoying a new world on the page. Honing the ability to observe, to clear away mental distractions and to connect with our own inner wisdom is the fuel that informs creativity and enriches our lives. In this workshop we’ll tap into mindful awareness as a tool to elevate consciousness and attention. Come prepared to observe, listen, meditate, write, read, and discover.
