There are far worse ways to spend a Monday than doing some writing as meditation. Write for Your Life happens every Monday morning at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley (1 Lawson Rd., Berkeley), with participants writing in response to a reading at the top of the session. Reading aloud to the group is optional. 9:15-11:45 a.m., free. 510-524-2858 or UUCB.orgfree
