The Healing Power of Writing WorkshopS

Date for Summer 2019 – July 14

Sunday: 11.00am - 4.30pm



This format for the Cabin Writing Workshops gives us a good break for lunch, and possibly a short walk (the Ashdown Forest is minutes away), as well as a rest to process the morning’s writing and discussion.

Discussion, Writing & Sharing

We always start with silence and this allows for a settling down, a feeling of arrival and a shaking off of the journey to the workshop - both practical and emotional. Participants are invited to explore a range of personal issues and very quickly we decide together themes to explore through creative expressive writing. Because we share our common humanity, time and again there is a synchronicity of experiences which fosters connections.

Creativity: A Gift to Yourself

Conversations and writing may be about family relationships, ambivalence, anger and sadness, needs for new directions, tricky situations, how to be creative, making time and space in busy lives. The diversity sits with those present and what each person brings. There may be tears, but equally so laughter as well. And surprisingly despite serious subjects being tackled, the writing brings with it a sense of fun. The creative process of writing works through the imagination, which has a chance to wander and break free.

And this kind of writing, alongside the experience of sharing with others, is a gift to yourself. Words – spoken and written – may bring feelings of healing and integration.

Numbers are limited to six so the groups are small and quickly build up an intimate atmosphere, which feels contained and safe - particularly once the wood burning fire is blazing. Apart from writing materials, you will need to bring indoor shoes/slippers. In our lunch break we go down to the bottom of the hill and sit around my kitchen table. Contributions for pot luck sharing of food are much appreciated.
