WORKSHOP 7: Celebrating Presence: Connecting with Stories through Mindfulness
With Nicola Bentley
9:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. | Online $10
Connecting with our thoughts and experiences, gaining insights by paying attention moment to moment, can inform creativity, fuel curiosity, and transform our knowledge of ourselves. As writers and readers we are natural observers; being fully present enhances our connection to the richness of a story and provides an opportunity to understand our own story. Mindfulness is a way of paying attention, of being situationally aware of our thoughts and feelings in the present, with a keen sense of curiosity and insight. Mindful is that place where clarity informs wisdom. This short experiential session includes a brief overview about mindfulness and a guided meditation practice inspired by the festival’s theme of celebration. Start your morning by connecting to your own true story.
