Writing Yourself Alive: A Creative Meditation & Writing Workshop

Writing Yourself Alive digital slide
Brookline Village

SATURDAY, September 14 at 2 PM

Learn to weave different forms of creative expressions – meditation, journaling, creative writing – to explore all emotions and experiences as honorable, and to practice holding space for them with curiosity, compassion, and a sense of humor.

Marika Preziuso, PhD, will use guided meditation and poetry to inspire creative writing and journaling. Participants will generate new writing and have the option to share it with others. Please bring your own writing materials, blankets, and/or meditation pillows, and wear comfortable clothing. All levels of English are welcome!

Volunteer with the Friends of the Brookline Public Library

Are you a fan of children's books? Would you like to volunteer for a few hours a week? The Friends of the Brookline Public Library are looking for a volunteer to work with the book sale's popular inventory of children's books. You'll get to work with fellow book lovers--and get the satisfaction of seeing books fly off the shelf. Please write for more information.
