Building Discernment and Trust in Our Editing PracticesCOMMUNITY COVEN WORKSHOP

Our editing practices can easily be taken over by fear, anxiety, concerns about marketability, imposter syndrome, and compare & despair syndrome. when our minds contract, as they do in states of fear and worry, we lose sight of the heart of our work and may make editing choices that don’t strengthen the heartbeat of our project(s). this two-hour workshop is designed to get us in touch with our truest creative desires, to find & hold close the heartbeat of our project(s), and to discern when our editing choices are aligned with the integrity and heart of our work vs when our editing choices are being motivated by other factors and/or emotions. this workshop will include a meditation, mindfulness offerings for your writing and editing processes, and a generative exercise to help us practice discernment and trust as we edit. Online via ZOOM. Please let us know if you have any accommodations if needed.
