    "Writing as a Meditative Activity” will be the topic addressed by Nic Stoltzfus for the Oct. 15 meeting of the Emerald Coast Meditation Society.

    The free meeting will start with a 30-minute silent meditation at 6:30 p.m. in the parish hall at Christ the King Episcopal Church, 480 N. Co. Hwy. 393, Santa Rosa Beach, one-half mile north of Hwy. 98. The ECMS is ecumenical and follows no religion.

    Stoltzfus is a Florida native who grew up in Blountstown and attended Florida State University where he received his bachelors’ degree in communication. Stoltzfus then went on to teach English in Japan for a year before returning to work for the film production company started by his father, Elam Stoltzfus.

    The two collaborated on the recent movie shot mainly in Walton County: Coastal Dune Lakes: Jewels of Florida’s Emerald Coast. Nic Stoltzfus wrote the screenplay and the accompanying coffee table book for that film.

    In his talk, he will discuss how he uses writing as a form of meditation and how this practice has helped him deal with some of his life struggles. Included in his talk will be a portion about the role of meditative writing in creating art.

    The evening will conclude with a short guided meditation. Anyone who needs meditation instruction should arrive by 6:15 p.m. For information contact Nancy James, at nancyjames@embarqmail.com.
