For Women Who Write
June 17, 2017£85.00
A solstice retreat day in an inspiring forest setting for women who write, and who want to write with greater authenticity and creativity, led by Jane Cormack, (MA in Creative & Professional Writing) author of ‘Language of the Feminine’ and Janis Mackay (MA in Creative Writing and Personal Development) and author of several novels for children.
We believe that by connecting more fully with our bodies as women and to the Earth, we can connect more fully to our creative selves. Through guidance from Janis and Jane we will deepen awareness of, and connection to, our bodies and feminine energy and to the elements of earth, air, water and fire. By doing so, we can joyfully experience our ‘fullness’ and the channels of our unique creative inspiration and expression.
Find the flow in your words – be like water.
Find the conviction in your words – be rooted like a tree.
Find the passion and energy in your words – be like fire.
Find freedom, playfulness and fresh ideas – be like the wind.
The day will begin at 10.30 and go through, with breaks, until 8pm. The retreat day will blend free writing, movement, guided meditation, feminine embodiment practice, sharing, storytelling and story writing. We ask that, in preparation for the day, you focus on a question that is relevant in your life right now. Don’t necessarily seek the answer, but rather hone the question. This question will then form your focus for the workshop. Part of the day will be given to a vision quest in the forest. The retreat will be both nurturing and naturing!
£95 or with early bird booking of £85 if booked before 20th of May.
