reconnect with play, imagination and creativity.
We will practice mindfulness to descend into the body and write from a deep and connected place. Through play, enticing prompts and visual imagery we will discover new doorways into imagination and memory. These techniques enable us to break through creative blocks, bypass the inner critic and discover stories held in the body. Suitable for fiction or memoir. Beginners welcome. Each session ends with an opportunity to share your writing or thoughts in a supportive environment.
