Writing for Wellbeing: Storytelling for Self-Exploration.
SATURDAY 6 MAY from 1.00 to 4.00pm
Write your way to a more positive outlook on life!
We all have a story to tell, and we are all part of greater stories.
In this workshop, we will explore the potential of story writing
as a means for self-growth and awareness.
We will work with stories such as the Ramayana tale, as well as using our creativity in approaching our own life story.
No previous writing experience is needed, only a willingness to explore your own creative potential in a nurturing and friendly environment. You never have to read your work aloud.
What is Writing for Wellbeing?
Words have power! Writing is good for you! We use guided writing activities as a gentle approach to personal growth. These writing activities are tools which you can take away with you to use throughout life.
A developing body of research shows that expressive writing helps calm the mind and emotions, and increases feelings of happiness and wellbeing. People who have done Writing for Wellbeing say it sparks their imagination and helps them release both personal and creative limitations. As well, they find it focusing and meditative, and say it helps them be kinder to themselves.
How does it work?
Writing for Wellbeing is easy! You will be guided through specific writing activities designed to help release the words within you in a positive and creative way. Individual sessions will be tailored to your own needs for healing and growth. Group sessions are enhanced by the support and energy of other participants.
No previous experience is needed. Anyone can do it. You will be guided through each writing activity in a non-judgemental atmosphere. Technique is unimportant — whatever you do is right for you. And remember — you never have to read out anything you have written, so you can write whatever you want
