What you'll learn in this writing class:

Meditative Writing Level One: The Process of Creativity & Story Mining

At the intersection of science, art, and meditation we build an approach to writing that draws from the most powerful part of your mind. 

Cognitive and meditative exercises will be crafted specifically to help you get the most out of every writing session and discover the deepest truth of your unique voice.

​These tools can also be flipped upside-down to create profound storytelling techniques and build structure in your scripts. 

Classes are built around the needs of the writers. Subjects might include...

  • Story structure
  • Divergent vs convergent thinking
  • ​Shadow work
  • Resistance to writing
  • Habit building
  • Negative self-talk/internal bullies
  • Handling rejection
  • Inspiration on demand
  • Enhancing artistry
  • Building creativity
  • Vulnerability training
  • How to handle distractions
  • Character psychology
  • Audience psychology
  • Your relationship to your artistry and craft
  • Writing stamina
  • 3 dimensional characters 
  • Universal stories

​Every class also includes a classic meditative writing session that will generate pages upon pages of new story, characters, explorations.  

Please bring a pen and paper.

Question from Rina A.
Is this course designed more for fiction or non-fiction writing?
Answer from Jessica H. Verified Educator
This course is great for all writers. Screenwriters, nonfiction, fiction, songwriting, short stories, play, comedy writers, stand-ups, journalists, etc. The method and principles apply to all forms and genres. The lectures are built around the writers in the class. So if you let Jessica know what kind of writer you are and what you are working through she will teach toward that.
