Walk, Sit, and Write: Weinstein Leads Meditation Through Writing

Daniel Weinstein, Ph.D., Department of English, a mentor in IUP’s Mindfulness Living Learning Community, will begin leading weekly walking, sitting, and writing meditation sessions at 8:00 a.m., Friday mornings, in Ruddock Hall, room 402, starting September 6.

The meditation sessions derive their format from the book The True Secret of Writing by Natalie Goldberg, a longtime Zen practitioner, author, and teacher of writing well known for her use of writing as a meditative practice.

Participants will explore how writing, performed as meditation, can help anyone touch deep understandings about oneself and one’s connections to the world.

Participants are asked to bring a notebook and a pen each time they show up to “walk, sit, and write.”
