Seasonal self-discovery writing workshops are for you if want to use writing to explore how to live more intentionally or how to incorporate nature and the seasons into your daily life.
Over the course of six writing workshops, one for each season (including the ‘transitional’ seasons of early and late summer), you will learn more about what happens in each season from both a western and eastern philosophical point of view. You will also be given an opportunity to reflect on and write about your own needs in each season, making each workshop an ideal time for you to use writing to consider what is working well for you in each season and what might help you live more in tune with your needs in each season.
Writing and/or journaling is a powerful and safe way to learn more about yourself. These workshops can offer many of the benefits of self-reflective writing, including:
• Providing a springboard to growth and healing
• Affirming and giving expression to your creativity
• Supporting the development of your unique voice
• Creating your own story
• Developing insight into your thoughts, feelings and behaviour
• Linking your past, present and future
• Understanding and owning your story and its meaning
You can come to any one - or all - of the workshops, which are running from 1pm til 3pm on the following dates in 2021:
5th March 2021 (Spring)
14th May 2021 (Early Summer)
11th June 2021 (Summer)
13th August 2021 (Late Summer)
15th October 2021 (Autumn)
10th December 2021 (Winter)
Please bring along your own favourite writing implements (pens, notebooks, laptops, iPads, etc.); pens and paper will be made available for those who require it.
