WELCOME TO THE HVWC CALENDAR: home of all our upcoming readings, events and workshops. You can view by list or calendar (see right menu to choose). Click the colored tabs below to show only specific options. Our workshops run as multi-session series or one-day “intensives.” Note, we list the multi-session courses on the first day they meet only. The full dates of the session are described in the course descriptions. You would need to scroll back to the start date if you needed to enroll for something already underway. But do let us know if you want to join something in midstream since we need the blessing of the instructor. Questions? Email us.
Yoga & Meditation Circle for Writers with Angela Derecas Taylor (in person at HVWC)
October 30 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$50.00
This is a two-hour class at HVWC. The first hour and a half is meditation and Yoga with poses specific to helping to get the creative juices flowing, interspersed with open writing from prompts. The last 30 minutes is for open discussion and sharing (for those who wish to share, though sharing is optional).
Participants need to bring their own Yoga mat and any props they may use for their practice as well as pads, journal, paper and writing implement (no laptops). Teacher will bring extra paper, pens and clipboards, as this all takes place on the Yoga mat.
