Writing, meditation and yoga course – last few places!


I’m teaching meditation and writing at beautiful Moniack Mhor, in Inverness-shire, from 8 – 13 June. There are still a few spaces available so sign up quickly if you’re interested! Here’s a bit more information…

This course is inspired by the classical ideal of a healthy mind in a healthy body. Meditation and yoga are the perfect complements to writing, helping you to focus, be more creative, generate ideas and solve problems. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced writer, you’ll develop a new set of innovative creative writing skills, and will learn how to use meditative disciplines to hone your work and be more productive. Start the morning with a revitalising yoga class, then spend the day in writing workshops, interspersed with short periods of group meditation. You’ll receive individual one-to-one sessions with the highly experienced writing tutor, to focus closely on your work. And there’ll be time to read, reflect, write and explore the beautiful local area – or just relax in famously friendly Moniack Mhor. It doesn’t matter whether you’re new to yoga, meditation, writing or all three – or you have some experience in some or all of these areas – the course will be tailored to suit your needs.
