Writing Through It...
Mindfulness in the New Year

Sat, 13 Jan, 2018 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

With a New Year ahead, let's take a moment to pause and set our intentions. Author and Circle Yoga Cooperative owner Annie Mahon will share her story of working through anxiety and disordered eating through practicing mindfulness and writing her book, Things I Did When I Was Hangry. Ms. Mahon will share with us a mindfulness eating exercise and speak about how writing and working through her pain helped her grow and become who she is today. Laura DiFranco, published author and beloved instructor of classes at The Writer's Center including Writing as a Path to Healing, will lead a mindfulness writing exercise to help get our body, mind, and writing muscles working together in 2018. Come enjoy some openness and zen to help you get ready to face the new year!

Laura Di Franco, MPT is a holistic physical therapist, published author, teacher, poet, and black belt in Tae Kwon Do. She’s serious about integrating mind, body and soul as a journey to passion and power and it’s her mission to show you how. You can find her writing featured in places like The Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen, Best Self Magazine, The Wellness Universe, Wild Sister Magazine, PersonalGrowth.com, Tiny Buddha, and The Elephant Journal.

Annie Mahon is an author, ordained Buddhist mindfulness teacher, and founder of the Circle Yoga Cooperative in Washington, D.C. Her blog, rawmindfulness.com, is a hit with the mindfulness and yoga community and led to a book of Annie’s collected essays, Words to be With. Annie’s book, Things I Did When I was Hangry (Parallax Press, September 2015), documents Annie’s search for sanity in her eating disordered family life, and reveals how mindfulness helped her go beyond the search for perfection and learn to love the moment as it is. Annie holds certifications in yoga, focusing and massage therapy and dabbles in Nonviolent Communication (NVC), as well as a B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science and a Masters in Religious Studies.
