Sit. Write. Here.

Mindful Writers Circle No Background.png




Writing is a pursuit of the mind and you can train your mind to be more effective at it. 

The list of ways that mindfulness meditation training can benefit you as a writer is long:

  • deep sustained focus

  • learning to quiet your inner critic and so you can get that first messy draft on the page

  • touching into deep emotions and staying with them long enough to describe them

  • finding equanimity to deal with rejections

  • dismantling writers block

A mindfulness meditation practice can help with all these things and so much more.

"[Meditation] helps train the mind to settle and focus and be more perceptive, more aware, which is of course very helpful for the writing practice."

- Ruth Ozeki, Buddhist Nun

Author of "The Book of Form and Emptiness," and

"A Tale for the Time Being."
