A Stepping Stones Books and Gifts Free Event
an evening with author
Date: Friday, May 4
Time: 7 pm
Center for Spiritual Living Santa Rosa
2075 Occidental Road
Writing calls on us to fully engage our mind’s cognitive powers, while meditation asks us to let go of thinking and storytelling. Though these two practices may seem incompatible, Albert teaches us that they can be powerfully complimentary. With a mixture of engaging storytelling and practical exercises, Writing as a Path to Awakening invites you on a journey of growth and discovery—to enhance your writing through the practice of meditation, while using the creative process to accelerate your spiritual evolution.
Albert Flynn DeSilver is an American poet, memoirist, novelist, speaker and workshop leader. He received a BFA in photography from the University of Colorado in 1991 and an MFA in New Genres from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1995. His work has appeared in over 100 literary journals worldwide. He is the author of several books of poems and the memoir Beamish Boy which Kirkus Reviews called "a beautifully written memoir...poignant and inspirational." Albert taught as a California Poet in the Schools more than a decade working with thousands of children throughout Northern California and beyond. He also served as Marin County's very first Poet Laureate.
Albert DeSilver's book Writing as a Path to Awakening is available from Stepping Stones Books and Gifts.
