The Nature of Writing - A Weekly Gathering, starting August 2019




The Nature of Writing studio session gathers writers in the beauty of Maui to awaken and allow our senses--and share our writing in this one of a kind Maui writing class.

Once a week, for an hour and a half each Sunday, we'll meet and practice a Writing Meditation in our natural settings.

Guided by nature and the voice and senses within, facilitated gently by our dynamic, award winning teacher and storyteller, Nancy Taylor (N.T. Arévalo).

We'll sense, we'll be, we'll share, we will listen. 

Part meditation (the nature of all reading and writing), part inspiration, The Nature of Writing studio sessions will allow your spirit to gather, restore, and find its true words.

Upcountry/Central Maui location will be shared with participants upon registration. Sessions are scheduled for Sundays from 3-4:30PM in August.

Cost: $75

E komo mai. Come: be on the island, listen to its tales. 
Sharpen your senses. 
Find the nature of your words.


  • What if I have special health needs? We welcome everyone, of any age or situation, to join. Most activities will involve low impact movement, at your own pace; accessible locations; time to rest and reflect and replenish. We'll do our best to schedule these gatherings outside of high times of heat. Please share whatever accommodations you may need with the facilitator. 
  • How do I register? Hit "BUY NOW" above to pay electronically. You do not have to join PayPal to pay; it just allows you to pay easily electronically. 
  • What is a Writing Meditation? Much like a guided meditation, this Writing Meditation class helps guide us through writing as a form of meditation. It will deepen our skillset over the writerly mind within by deepening our connection with stillness--and, in this case, nature. These sessions work on many levels, as you the writer wish. They can be a writing journey, a journey through or to enjoy and learn about the natural environment, or part of one's spiritual practice or healing work. While we'll have time to be still with ourselves and connect with nature, there will also be time to connect with other writers.
  • Will I be able to share my work? In fact, you will. Each participant will be given time to share their work from our session that day or another piece of work. Each writer is also welcome to pass, if they need to be more "within" in that moment.
