The Art of Letter Writing: Voice, Handwriting & Spirit
With Christian McEwen and Barbara Bash
June 12 – 14, 2015
In my mailbox, buried amid the sales offers, catalogs, and charity requests, I found the latest brochure from the Zen Mountain Monastery. There I discovered a workshop for writing letters. Wow! There is definitely something spiritual about sitting with pen and paper, thinking specifically of someone, and transcribing your thoughts onto the paper with your handwriting. Unique, personal, and now I can say- “spiritual”.
Zen Mountain Monastery is located Upstate New York, about 2.5 hours from NYC. It is set in a beautiful landscape with mountains in the background. I haven’t visited, and unfortunately, I can not attend this workshop. However, I am so pleased to see Christian McEwen and Barbara Bash offering “The Art of Letter Writing” as a spiritual endeavor. I mention it so- perhaps, you might go!
