Poetry & Mindfulness Uplift November 2023
21 November @ 3:55 pm - 4:45 pmGBP £12 – GBP £40
Take time out to recharge your energy and creativity.
Glide toward the end of the year and rejuvenate your writing & yourself with four short 45 minute sessions of poetry and mindfulness once a week during November.
Bring in the light. Mindfulness has been shown to reduce stress and improve well-being, clarity, happiness, memory, focus AND creativity.
These uplifting sessions are a fresh start to the day in the UK, or a wind down if you are in Australia nearing the end of the day.
Each session focuses on a theme to spur positive wellbeing, with a prompt for writing. Writing with mindfulness gives your writing a refreshing edge.
WHO is it for? Those interested in mindfulness and/or poetry or writing. Those who want to explore techniques to recharge their wellbeing and creativity. You don’t have to be writer or poet to enjoy the sessions. Alternatively, you maybe a writer wanting to explore the effect of mindfulness on your writing (it surprised me how it expanded my creative expression).
These sessions are 30mins long , followed by an additional 15mins of writing together, thus 45mins in total (it is recommended, but you don’t have to stay for the 15mins of writing time at the end).
For those who can stay longer during the second and last session on 14th & 28th November, we’ll share our reflections and writing (approx. 1hour 15mins in total for this session), again this is not essential.
