Story-telling existed before the invention of paper, and is common
to all cultures and societies. Stories help to explain our origins and
give voice to our memories, fears and desires. They can imagine
possible futures. Whatever your motive for wishing to write, this
three-hour workshop will help you find a language and a structureto express the story, or stories, you wish to tell. All you need to
bring is pen and paper, and a willingness to try something new.

 

So good we are running it twice! The workshop content will be much the same, but the stories you choose to tell might change, so feel welcome to attend one or both workshops.


Day: Friday
Dates: 16th November 2018

In this workshop we will be exploring different forms of mindful movement - yoga, spinal movements and dance. Through this exploration of movement and the body, we can begin to deepen our understanding of ourselves. We become aware of tensions we hold in the body, linear movement patterns and movements we feel most comfortable and uncomfortable with. When we start to move mindfully and bring our awareness to the present moment, we also begin to become more aware of the patterns in our mind. We can begin to see the mind-body connection.
