Zen Pen: A Writing, Being & Meditation Retreat

We can make our minds so like still water that beings gather about us to see
their own images, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with
a fiercer life because of our silence. (Yeats)
Zen (Chinese chán ‘quietude’) invites us to be present, to live and write
Pen (Latin penna ‘feather’) refers to both practicing the art of writing and to
the implement we use. It also invites us to play in a safe place – as in playpen.
Time to write, walk, circle the garden, sit amidst blue
glass, breathe and be….
What do writing, being and breath share in
common? They all bring alive and expand the
present moment. They invoke a conversation with
ourselves and others. An exchange of energies.
Writing is a skill drawn from attention, presence and
openness – an organic process rather than a talent.
On this retreat in a sacred space (Temenos) discover
the writer inside you. We explore our innate creativity
and imagination as we connect writing to
mindfulness and bodyfulness
