Welcome to Wolf at the Door
Creative Writing Workshops and Retreats inspired by Buddhist principles and practice
There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt
or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.
~ "The Way It Is" by William Stafford ~
Wolf at the Door writing workshops are woven with the Dharma and laced with the unexpected. No writing experience necessary, just a willingness to step through ‘the door’ of the imagination in the company experienced guides Ananda, Satyalila and Dharmavadana. Imagination is essential in the spiritual life; it makes available and harmonises the different energies contained within us. Wolf at the Door offers a friendly and nurturing way of exploring all this through writing.
