Weekly Writing Prompts

The weekly writing prompts are inspired by* the 8 limbs of yoga practice, the “middle way” of the historical Buddha, Western concepts of “mindfulness”, and loving-kindness meditation.

Each writing prompt consists of a series of questions for free writing that will help you create material that you can shape however you like: a poem, a bit of memoir, a piece of prose.

I’d love it if you’d leave a link to your own work with each prompt in the comment section!

I believe that reading and writing are the most nourishing forms of meditation anyone has so far found.

I believe in the power of taking conscious control of the stories we are telling ourselves. I believe that art is a tool for living the good life and that sharing our stories is integral to the human experience.
