Writing from Within: Haiku and the Spiritual Dimension

Following the success of “Writing from Within: Haiku and the Spiritual Dimension” in the summers of 2007 and 2008, Kim Richardson and Maeve O'Sullivan are giving this weeklong workshop again at Anam Cara Writers' and Artists' Retreat in Ireland, in July 2009.

This residential workshop is designed to help you develop paths to your inner inspiration - the path within. Toward this goal, we work with the ancient medium of haiku poetry and its related forms, with their links to Zen and its emphasis on mindfulness. Combining the haiku work with meditation, breath and light practices, the outstanding natural beauty of the Beara Peninsula and the peace and quiet of Anam Cara, our aim is to heighten levels of awareness and to open creative channels.

Check out Anam Cara itself on its website:

Please note that no experience of either haiku or meditation is necessary to attend this workshop.

I've met Maeve, she's lovely. I'd love to do this workshop sometime, the idea of getting away from it all to such a lovely place is very appealing.

There's an award waiting for you, over at mine :)
