Sedona, AZ, March 16, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Sedona Meditation Training Company announces The Yoga of Writing – A Woman's Meditation & Writing Retreat with Sarah McLean and Victoria Nelson. The retreats will guide woman on a transcendent journey to go behind their external world to begin to express their story.
“Writing can be a practice and used as a form of meditation. When the writer disappears in her writings, the creative self is revealed. Writing practice leads to a profound experience of timelessness and present moment awareness - a single moment of inspiration becomes eternity,” says retreat facilitator and meditation teacher, Sarah McLean.
“That is also true of meditation. Both can lead to the disappearance of the chattering mind. What is left is the song of the soul. Life is transformed physically, spiritually, and emotionally.” she adds.
Both facilitators are from Sedona, Arizona where they are immersed in a lifestyle that they report totally nourishes them. Recently featured in the New York Times, Sarah McLean, the founding director of the Sedona Meditation Training Co., was also one of the founding directors of the Chopra Center in California. She has over 20 years’ experience in the personal growth arena and she teaches meditation and writes in Sedona.
Victoria Nelson, retired from a corporate career at an early age and is a self-taught painter and writer whose work has been featured at the University of New England Museum’s “On Island” show featuring women artists of Monhegan Island. She spends her days painting and writing and being in nature.
There is no writing or meditation experience needed to attend the retreat. The Yoga of Writing retreat will be held three times this year. From April 23-23 in Austin, Texas, May 21-23 in Sedona, Arizona and August 13-15 in Portland, Maine. Registration and information about this and other courses can be found at www.SedonaMeditation.com.
