WRITING AS A RITUAL
A 3-part writing workshop exploring how writing can become an intimate ritual for healing, self-realisation and deep focus. We will explore how ritualistic writing can help you find a future vision for yourself and your life, how you can write yourself out of hard situations, and how your own writing moments can become the most powerful healing tool. We will also explore writing rituals in the context of fiction writing, poetry writing or memoir writing.
7pm CEST / 6pm UK / 1pm EST
Each workshop will last 1.5-2h
Max 8 spots available!
Each student will get personalised individual attention and feedback, so only 10 spots will be available for this workshop.
What is a ritual?
Rituals for journaling & manifestations
Creating space for deep work and understanding
Yoga, meditation, walking, running and other ritualistic practices for writers
Rituals for fiction, memoir & poetry writing
Healing through writing
The workshops will be guided by yours truly, and they will be a blend of me sharing my own rituals, sacred moments I have developed in order to help me reach a clearer state of mind, a feeling of being closer to the sky, a feeling of lifting a little from the ground, as well as writing prompts and exercises to help you build your own unique rituals. I will share my own practice of writing manifestations and goals, writing my future self to life, as well as how I create the space I need to write prose and poetry.
At the end of our 3 weeks together you will have developed your own rituals around writing or journaling and have a whole toolbox of prompts and ideas you can use on your own.
At the end of each Sunday we will have time for Q&A, as well as an opportunity to let those who want to read their written work for the group.
This is a safe space where everyone's welcome, no matter previous experience. The workshops will be just as beneficial for advanced published writers as well s complete beginners, all you need to have is an open mind and open heart.
