Course overview

This friendly four-hour creative writing workshop will invite you to enter into relationship with your bodies and surroundings. The session will be held in a supportive way and will integrate some simple yoga inspired movement (adaptable to all bodies), prompts for creative and reflective expression through writing, and even some environmental science! You will be guided to a holistic understanding of person and place. This course is ideal for people who like to write and to contemplate how to live more skilfully as individuals, as a community and in relationship with their surroundings. There will be time for sharing small parts of your writing towards the end of the workshop but no pressure, it’s about an unfolding individual/shared creative process and participants need to feel at ease to write freely.

Course description

If you are interested in deepening your relationship with yourself, your community, and your surroundings through writing this course is for you. You will be guided to a holistic understanding of person and place. The space will be held so you can listen to your bodies and surroundings to hear the stories they want to tell. It will provide you with a friendly, nurturing and fun place even if you feel a little shy of writing and self-inquiry.

In the course you will be given the opportunity to:

• deepen your sensorial and physical awareness,

• explore ways to express yourself using words,

• practice a gentle yoga inspired movement (all bodies welcome),

• have a space to listen and write from the heart.

• Rest in your true nature.

This course will support individual well-being, that of the community and the environment. Sharing your experiences in a supported community will help develop self-confidence and give the opportunity to explore meaning in your life. Openness is encouraged but you won’t be asked to share more than you are comfortable with. Come practice with us, you are welcome!
