Nature writing can become an integral daily ritual – similar to meditation, Yoga, exercise – for improving one’s overall wellbeing. Writing tends to promote creativity, identity-building, spurs imagination and healthy ‘flow’ states, all productive conditions for positive mental health. This class is meant for beginners and anyone interested in various topics connected to contemporary wellbeing practices applied to the writing process.
This workshop needs at least 2 participants to run. If this number is not met, everyone registered will be given the option to receive a refund or put their class credit toward a future class of their choice.
