I appreciate most Miriam's wisdom and spacious presence, her open heart, message of gentleness/being gentle, and knowledge. Miriam is a skillful teacher, who creates an environment of trust, where one can let go and open up to using words to communicate the unseen, and freshly felt experience of one's mind.

Meet Miriam Hall, an internationally recognized teacher and increasingly published author. Through her experience as a writer and Shambhala Buddhist, Miriam shows how contemplative writing is a practice that can be utilized to help stimulate creativity but also heal obstacles on the path of meditation. Based on dharma and buddhism, contemplative writing is an art that allows creativity to arise from clear perception. As living, sentient beings, perception is available to all of us, all of the time. so all of us have access to creative inspiration simply by being. Come and learn how we can weave meditation, dharma teachings and contemplation to help us wake up to our true nature.

This class is an introduction to a weekend program, where we will explore contemplative writing more deeply on an experiential level. It will consist of conversation and a sample of a powerful writing practice. Open to everyone and unlimited in seating so come one, come all and explore contemplative writing with us!
