Friday, December 14: How to Use Writing as a Meditation Practice
Free Writing works beautifully as a meditation practice. Within the frame of cultivating the skills of well-being, it helps to integrate the busy mind with the meditative awareness. As an inquiry practice, it helps us observe and interrupt habitual and restless states of mind. This is another practice that offers transformational benefits from as little as 10 minutes of writing practice per day. It can also be supplemental to a regular meditation regimen by adding it immediately afterward. This is a successful strategy for writer’s block and for professional writers looking to move beyond their usual boundaries.
