A Space for Writing

  • Westergasfabriek Villa 4 Haarlemmerweg Amsterdam, NH, 1014 BE Netherlands (map)

Feeling stuck with your research paper? 

Sometimes changing the space we work in and from, inspires us to change the way we work.

In this event, we will be experimenting with a more spacious way of working that includes mindfulness and meditation practices to prime our brain to be focused yet relaxed.

We will begin with a short introduction followed by a brief guided meditation.
After that, you will get to use the wonderful space in- and outside of the Westergasfabriek Villa to get on with your writing. 

After lunch, we will meet again to reset our nervous system to optimize it for further writing.

We will reconvene at the end of the day to share our insights with like-minded participants, celebrate successes and help each other overcome hurdles.

All the while you will have access to a breathing space where you can re-center yourself any time you want.

This event was designed with PhD students in mind so of course the students discount applies to all post-graduates too.
