The Contemplative Practice of Writing
All are welcome. If you came last year, join us and share your CPOW experiences!
This workshop is a playful place where participants will experience how the mindful making of lines and marks on paper prepares us for creative and innovative work.
CPOW is a radical move beyond journals into a private, productive headspace. I have made my living as a writer and editor for almost twenty-five years, and recently I have begun to dig deeper into understanding how tactile acts of writing fuel thought and unleash wisdom.
This is a hands-on workshop featuring strategies that teachers can enjoy in their own lives and integrate into classroom practice. Come and try the original CPOW Book 1, and give your feedback on our new CPOW Classroom Edition.
All Grades K-12
All supplies are included, but participants can bring their favourite pen or pencil if they would like.
