I am a writer who meditates. Unfortunately, I don’t live in Vermont – nor any where near – so I’m passing this on…
Is a contemplative practice part of your writing life, personal life, or both? Vermont Studio Center is partnering with the Hemera Foundation to offer ten fellowships that include time at the VSC, time at a residential meditation retreat, additional class, workshop or retreat time, and the services of a mentor-artist.
The Tending Space Fellowship Program for Artists was developed with the view that art has the capacity to infuse the experience of everyday life with awareness. The aim of the program is to nurture the creative practice of seeing things as they are, to cultivate that awareness, and to live and create from this insight. Toward that purpose, we support artists with opportunities for both contemplation and creation. Qualified applicants will be artists who are rigorously committed to their art form and who have a demonstrable interest in contemplative practice.
The application information is here. The deadline is February 15th.
