Class Description: 

Please note this workshop is only available for students who have taken previous workshops with Natalie.

We know the particulars of our lives—the facts of when and where we were born, the cities in which we lived, the name of our high school crush—but memoir is more than the chronological presentation of these facts or an orderly procession of places and dates. Memoir writing urges us to break the surface, cut through to the emotional truth underneath, and to record and share our experiences without guilt, regret, or shame.

This memoir-writing workshop with Natalie Goldberg explores what it means to remember and how to make our past come alive with the written word. We study the mind and the meandering way the mind remembers. We relax into the heart of our lives and let the stories inside us unfold.

During our week together we practice sitting meditation, slow walking, and writing exercises that include timed writings as well as book discussions. We enjoy the power of deep listening—to ourselves and others—in small and large groups. There is planned free time to write on our own, take a nap or walk. Bring fast writing pens, notebooks, and a beginner’s mind. You’ll spend each day in gentle silence from wake-up until morning class.

Natalie is strongly encouraging students to register for both workshops back to back for a full immersion experience. 

Students who register for both weeks of Natalie's writing workshops will receive a 10% discount for the second week AND priority on-campus lodging.
