This workshop offers you the opportunity to slowdown your day and relax by playing with words in a safe and respectful space. We will use a series of fun and engaging prompts to encourage you to put pen to paper and produce your own responses through expressive writing. You’ll learn about mindfulness as a poetic approach and how to use this technique to calm the mind and unlock your imagination. There will be guided meditations to help you spark ideas. You can share your ideas with the group – but only if you want to.
Learners will be able to
- use mindfulness as an approach to creative writing
- spark new ideas through a range of practical writing activities
- engage with expressive writing as a tool for well-being
