P is for presence; O is for overwhelmed: 4 writing workshops

January 19, 2016 · No Comments

A series of writing workshops to explore the stresses and passions of daily life as a student

4 Tuesdays at noon: January 19, 26, February 2, 9th, 2016

Every day that you are a student you’re also perhaps a friend, an animal lover, an activist and more. In these four writing workshops we will look at every day moments of distraction and exhaustion, attending also to the pull and call of passion and vocation.

Through writing and conversation, we will look at ways to become more present, nourished, and connect or reconnect to what you love and why you’re here. There will be four sessions. You are welcome to attend any one or all sessions. No experience necessary.

1. What If You Didn’t? and other questions to ask when you’re exhausted
2. O is for overwhelmed (or wake up, your housecoat is on fire)
3. Be Good to Yourself Whoever You Are
4. Where’s the love? A session on passion as distraction and passion as direction

When: Tuesdays, 12–1 pm
Jan. 19, Jan. 26, Feb. 2 and Feb. 9, 2016
Where: Multi-Faith Centre
Cost: Free
