Workshops and Teaching

DIVING INTO STORY
monthly writing workshops held at the Tree of Life Centre in Hove, UK
Next workshop date: 8 July, 2018 – 1:30-4:30 p.m. / £27
contact me for more details or go here to the Tree of Life website.

We all have a story to tell, and our stories matter. Stories give us the chance to be heard, stories help us find out who we really are; stories connect us to others and perhaps stories help the world become whole.

These monthly three-hour workshops will support you to discover the exhilaration and power of writing without preconceived ideas about what you should be writing or how you should be writing it, a thrilling and sometimes life-changing experience.

Your stories may be inspired from personal life, your intuition or your imagination, it does not matter: you will be encouraged to step out of your own way and open up your ‘child eyes’ to whatever wants to be expressed on the page. The focus of the workshop will be how to stop thinking about writing and to actually write.

You will begin at least one story, and you will leave knowing how to continue. Each workshop will go ‘deeper’ building on the previous one, but new participants are always welcome! No formal writing experience required.

Though none of us will live forever, our stories can. As long as one soul remains who can tell the story, the greater forces of love, mercy, generosity, and strength are continuously called into the world.”~ Clarissa Pinkola Estés
