Meditation practice for writers usually only involves the writers themselves. However, fictional characters can benefit from meditation as much as their authors can. This workshop has writers roleplaying and adopting the persona of their characters as they undergo meditation. The workshop will apply a blend of Eastern meditation techniques to help fictional characters relax emotional muscles they didnâ€™t realize they were clenching, and break on through to deeper truths about themselves in order to enlighten their authors. The workshop utilizes specific, playful, gentle guided meditation exercises paired with writing exercises. This course is co-taught by regular Rambo Academy instructor Henry Lien and experienced author, playwright, and meditation instructor Jerry Lee Davis. This workshop is designed to make fictional characters feel seen and make writers more aware of their charactersâ€™ inner lives.
Classes are taught online and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required. They are recorded for the benefit of class members only.
Cost is $99 ($79 for former students, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues, such as conference or convention workshops and mentoring sessions). Patreon supporters receive a discount or free classes, depending on their support level.

Free scholarships: If you cannot afford a class but really want to take one, apply for a Plunkett Scholarship. Each class has three slots reserved for such students, and the sole criteria is only that you can’t currently afford the class. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost,mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less. QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply. The Plunkett Scholarships are named for Edward Plunkett, who wrote as Lord Dunsany. Scholarships are given out on a rolling basis; I suggest getting them in sooner rather than later. You may apply for multiple classes.
