This class is an introduction to the profound connections between writing and mindfulness, specifically poetry as meditation. Mindfulness could be defined as one’s earned centered awareness in the present moment. There are many ways we can become more mindful in our lives and writing is one of the most essential and most efficient ways because it asks us to pay attention and center our energy on expression and the process of letting go.
First we will learn several essential tenets of eastern thought so that we have a firm understanding of what mindfulness is and then will learn how it is represented in ancient Chinese poetry. Writing similar poetry, we will further find, becomes itself a practice of mindfulness with the added benefit of creating something artful and expressive.
A willingness to open even short amounts of time and space for the practice of reading, writing, and meditation if desired.
