Events & Retreats

Upcoming Events:

February 9-10, 2019: Curiouser & Curiouser: Mindfulness for the Creative Writer Mini-Retreat

In this series of workshops, we will take a deep dive into our own inner worlds to discover how courageously befriending ourselves and cultivating a more habitual state of curiosity, openness, gentleness, and awareness can transform our relationship to the writing process and to our own creativity. This mini-retreat will be facilitated by Melissa Jean, Assistant Professor in the Mindfulness Studies masters’ program at Lesley University and an Interdisciplinary Studies facilitator for Creative Writing MFA students.
