Bring along a pen and some paper.
All our lives are rich with stories that define who we are. Studies have shown that writing about our experiences through safe guided exercises can heal us. Writing about these key events in our lives can help us heal wounds and help makes sense of the present or the past. If you want to discover how writing can give you permission to feel, remember, articulate, reclaim and to re-story your life; this workshop will introduce you to some basic exercises. Expressive writing opens up our hearts and minds to the present moment and gives us an opportunity to live life to our fullest potential.
This is an experiential workshop. While you will be introduced to the basic theory and context of expressive writing, this session is about getting your pen moving across the paper through a variety of guided exercises. The aim is to experience the ways writing can help you open up to and explore your own story. We will explore the ways your ‘story’ holds you back or calls you forward. The focus is on the process of writing and self-reflection. No one will be asked to read out any of his or her work.
