Mindfulness Workshop for Creatives (1 hour in length)
Please join us for a relaxing and informative session in which you’ll get a preview of Mindfulness Meditation techniques, all of which can be used for writers and other creatives looking to find their flow.
This workshop presents a secular approach to Mindfulness that focuses on how it can be practical and helpful in our daily lives. Participants will take away practical and accessible ways to reduce stress, increase enjoyment of the present moment, and promote resilience. No prior experience in meditation necessary.
This workshop will include:
• an overview of the global phenomenon that mindfulness has become
• simple techniques to get you started
• a few short guided meditations
• a Q&A
Daria Steketee began meditating over 30 years ago in New York City, where she grew up. She studied meditation in the Buddhist and Yogic traditions, while pursuing studies in Comparative Religion, Theatre, and Art at Bryn Mawr College and New York University. Working as a visual artist in Paris, she continued meditation training in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition before discovering Mindfulness through a series of classes, silent retreats, and books. A graduate of Mindfulness Training Institute, she has been certified to teach meditation in a variety of formats and settings (for companies, associations, individuals, etc.).
