Courses description

This course combines writing with Mindfulness and Compassion. It includes simple exercises and meditation practices which will help you connect with your creativity. Whilst this course does explore some poetry it is not intended to follow formal writing structures as we use free writing as a means of connecting you quickly with your inner voice. Over the course, we will create a safe space for you to share the work you have done as part of the course. This is an ideal class for you if you have been looking for a way to connect and express your emotions, guided weekly by gentle prompts as part of a supportive group.

Key points:
You will have a moment to slow things down and become more grounded with short meditations.
Subjects have stated how free writing allows them to connect with feelings and emotions that they were unaware of.
This course allows you to consider how you experience events and things in your life. How it appeared and how you felt about it.
There will be opportunities to discuss some poetry and each others work however, there is no pressure to participate.
There will be exercises and tools that help build resilience and allow you to build your own writing practice.

If you are currently undergoing a cognitive therapy, this might not be the right time to undertake this course.
