An event by the Contemplation: theory / practice research network.
- Bhanu Kapil (Churchill College, University of Cambridge)
- Andrew Wille (Editor)
In this practice-based session introduced by Professor Bhanu Kapil, Andrew Wille will lead participants in a creative writing practice grounded in contemplative enquiry.
Bhanu Kapil, a poet, will propose three essential questions drawn from contemplative art-making practices. Editor and writing teacher Andrew Wille will discuss the techniques of his ‘Four Elements’ practice, which draws upon mindfulness training as well as the Tarot. Fire, Water, Earth and Air provide a simple yet powerful framework not only for creating new work but also for revising and editing. During this session, Andrew Wille will lead a short workshop. (Please bring something to write with/upon, or any work in progress you would like to look at again).
Following the session will be a short Q&A.
