Wild Heart Writing: Letting Spring Flowers Bloom, GGF 3/1 – 3/3: online registration closed

With Cynthia Cummins and Laurie Senauke
in the Wheelwright Center

Friday, March 1, 6 pm – Sunday, March 3, noon
NOTE: Online registration is closed; call the Green Gulch office at 415-383-3134 to check for openings.

Join us for a time of mindfulness and wild-heart writing, where ideas come to life and stories tell themselves.

Authentic, compelling writing comes from a place of emptiness and mindfulness. By showing up, listening, and writing what arises, we discover in real time what needs to be said. Free your creativity and share your stories in an inspiring, supportive setting.

We calm the mind, then follow surprising and playful prompts to start our pens flowing. In timed exercises, we bypass our inner critics; words appear, memories surface, comedies and dramas unfold.  

No experience required! Just a willingness to be quiet and play. Bring a pen and paper, since laptop use is not suited to this modality (we’ll have extras on hand as well). This practice can serve as a form of meditation or as a way to discover the writer within, jumpstart any writing project, or add new tools to your writer’s belt.

Fees: $185; $166 current SFZC members; $148 limited income.

  • Please note that the retreat fee does not include accommodations. For overnight accommodations, please call the Green Gulch office at 415-383-3134.
  • We hope that most, if not all, participants will be staying in the retreat center, thus no commuter registrations will be accepted until the guest accommodations are full. Commuters may sign up to be on a waiting list and, if space opens, $15 per meal will be added to the retreat fee.
  • Some partial scholarships available. See About Registration, etc. below.
