B Print Ink Writers' Room

Spring 2022

 

Welcome to the B Print Ink Writers' Room! In June I am offering two workshops, A Journey in Meditation and Creativity and Letters to Earth. I'm also planning to begin a monthly Long Lunches conversations series. The workshops present many of the practices I use in my writing. And, they are portable and adaptable to other artistic disciplines, to any creatively-minded individual interested in building a portfolio, improving skills, looking for support and guidance, or finding community. I'm also available for one-on-one consultations.

Meditation is a proven tool for improving focus, calming the body and mind, and tapping into the subconscious -- all of which can help a writer meet the challenges that arise in a writing life. And there are many ways to meditate – breathwork, creative visualization, mindfulness, walking, and more.

 

A student of Natalie Goldberg, a former student of Regina Insight Meditation group leader, Dana Anjali, of one of the last of the Beat Poets, the late Diane di Prima, of Creative NonFiction Collective co-founder, Betsy Warland, and, most recently, of Faye Fitzgerald and the Training In Power Academy, Bernadette will share some thoughts, ideas, and exercises she’s gathered to build and maintain her writing practice for more than 20 years.

A long Prairie winter, a summer of extreme heat, drought, and flames. A pandemic ravaging the globe. Severe flooding, landslides, whole communities under water and dirt. Our hearts know this pain. In this session we will come together in a process of contemplation and discussion, writing and revision, to write group and individual letters to Earth and all its beings. Or to an editor, a politician, a friend -- anyone -- as a means of transforming emotion into action.
