Meeting 6:30pm - 8:30pm on Thursday evenings 1/31, 2/7, ( break for 2/14) 2/21, 2/28 Tuition: $150

Financial Agreement: I understand that sessions are limited to an intimate group of participants, thus prepayment of the full $150 tuition is necessary to reserve my place. Tuition is non-refundable and non-transferable.

Community Agreements: I understand that River Writing is a shared practice held at a community writing table. We will be creating the container together. As a participant, I agree to carefully read and then commit to the following seven agreements.

The Seven Agreements of River Writing

  1. Non-Judgement: I agree to practice for the sake of practice without criticism, praise, or apology. I grant myself permission to write freely and perhaps badly, and even to fail. I will write to discover rather than to craft, fix, or prove. I will offer my inner-critic a break from vigilance. I will endeavor to rest from the joy-stealing realm of comparison. I commit not to crosstalk or comment during our sessions, and especially not to praise.
  2. Shared Responsibility: I will take responsibility for the energy I bring to the circle. I understand that while I may experience River Writing as therapeutic, it is not therapy. Understanding that everyone benefits when we begin together on time, I will endeavor to gift myself the pleasure of an unrushed early arrival. I will co-create a community defined by radical, authentic inclusion. I agree that everyone matters, those within this circle, and those without. Everyone. I will speak and act accordingly: without racism, sexism, nationalism, abilism, agism, fat phobia, homophobia, or transphobia. If I stumble towards bias, I will acknowledge my mistakes and apologize.
  3. Confidentiality & Consent: I will keep what is shared in the circle within the circle. While I remain free to retell my own stories, I will not share those belonging to others. If I wish connect with another participant about their writing, I agree to ask first for their permission, prepared to respect their decline. I will not ask during a session, even at the break, which may be too soon.
  4. Self Care: I agree to take care of my own physical and emotional needs. While the River Writing table is a brave space and safer than most, I remain ultimately responsible for managing my level of disclosure.
  5. Honesty: I agree to say the truest thing I can say within my chosen level of disclosure. I agree to come as I am and to do my best to ditch my scripts and worn-out stories.
  6. Whole-Hearted Listening: I agree to practice listening without judgement, and with attentive curiosity. Whenever someone else is reading or speaking, I will try to allow myself the luxury of listening without the worry of what to say next. I will have my cell phone silenced and put away unless someone's life is at stake. On an inner level, I agree to actively pull for the person who is speaking.
  7. Kindness: I agree to practice radical kindness with others and with myself. I will remember to include myself in the circle of kindness I will be helping to create.
