It’s now proven that writing expressively about our lives and feelings can lead to a profound improvement in health. These workshops will explore guided writing experiences including expressive, transactional, and poetic writing. You do not need to have any proficiency with or affinity for writing to benefit, just an enthusiasm to discover [recover] [listen to] their own voice, and express themselves on the page.
We use various prompts such as: words, poems, art, post-cards, positive affirmations, stories, unsent letters and acrostics.
The exercises include individual tasks, pair work, small group work and some guided imagery.
Participants especially benefit when they share their writing. Hearing their words validated by others can be a powerful learning experience and can lead to deeper levels of understanding and increased confidence. However, you always decide what you wish to share.
The class is led by Mary Burns, an experienced counsellor and tutor.
