Tom George – Mindfulness Writing Workshop

25th October 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

42.99£

Learn to free your natural creativity at this unique workshop combining writing and mindfulness. Taking inspiration from nature, the senses and an open-ended approach to creativity we will learn to free our inner voice and create without self-judgement.

Mindfulness is a practice that comes from Buddhism; it invites us to connect with the present moment and see beauty in the smallest things. Writing mindfully, we can take a playful approach to creativity, writing intuitively – poetry, prose or whatever comes out. We can explore, experiment and try new approaches. The workshop includes guided meditation plus advice on incorporating mindfulness into your life and creative practice. There are fun, collaborative exercises as well as opportunities to be more reflective individually. We will also take inspiration from the gardens surrounding the venue, weather permitting.

The will be a break halfway through, with lunch available from the onsite cafe. This workshop is provided by Mindful Arts and facilitated by Tom George, a writer and musician with a special interest in wellbeing and mental health.
