It can be really challenging to think about the end of life, and while survival rates continue to improve for many cancer types, receiving a terminal diagnosis means seriously contemplating mortality. The author Irvin Yalom describes thinking about death as akin to ‘staring at the sun’, something we naturally find uncomfortable and can’t look directly at.

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.

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.
