Alongside Natalie Goldberg on beautiful Madeline Island in Lake Superior,students will cultivate a field of kindness toward themselves to write what about what fears they may have, what they have not been willing to speak about—what they really think about their fathers, the guilt of not measuring up to a lover’s expectations, our a lifelong desire for approval.
Meditation, slow walking, and plenty of timed writings, as well as book discussions and space for deep listening will all be crucial components of this workshop.
Each day will be spent in gentle silence from wake-up until 4:30 p.m. Bring fast writing pens, notebooks, and a beginner’s mind. A reading list will be sent in advance.
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.
