WRITING FROM THE BODY – A 4-WEEK CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP
Do you want to write from a more embodied place and set up some momentum with your writing? COME JOIN ME THIS AUTUMN FOR WRITING FROM THE BODY- a 4-week embodied creative writing course!
Starts on 13th of October 2020.
We will meet online for four Tuesday evenings 6.30-8.30pm BST to tap into the stories of our bodies and write about what we’ll find there.
‘Write your self. Your body must be heard.’ Helen Cixous
Our bodies hold stories and memories- everything we have ever experienced, thought or felt lives in our blood, our bones, muscles, cells, our very DNA.
* But how do we write from the body?
* How do we tap into the rich ground that is our body for inspiration and authentic, original writing?
* How can we write from our whole body not only from our brain?
In this workshop we will consciously tune into our bodies, using movement, breathwork and somatic exercises to cultivate embodied writing. We will listen deeply to the stories our bodies hold, move effortlessly between movement and the page and back.
We will play with automatic/ stream of consciousness writing, prompts and themed writing.
No experience in creative writing, movement or dance necessary, only a willingness to experiment.
The dates are:
* 13th of October
* 20th of October
* 27th of October
* 3rd of November

Cost: this 4-week course is on a sliding scale, please pay what you can from sliding scale £77, £88, £99, £111, £222

This is what participants have said:
‘The workshop was a playful way to process deeply and find entry points into creative flow. Assisted Embodied Souldiving!’ KC
‘A unique set of tools to take me into a writing process, from deeply felt, often surprising places’
‘This workshop gave me so much; new ways to connect to my writing, deeper characterisation, and scenes magically unfolded. Yet, I received more than that, an understanding of how our stories are in our bodies, and though Eva’s gentle, warm and nurturing facilitation, I also had some incredible healing shifts for my personal life. Highly recommended.’ Kate Marillat, bestselling Author of ‘Transform your Beliefs, transform your life’’
‘Eva’s ‘Writing from the Body’ workshop, that could easily be called ‘writing from, through and beyond the body’- gradually takes you deep inside, quite effortlessly and much deeper then you realise, thanks to her gentle ways and playful strategies.
I have found it an inspiring and nourishing day and I brought home a lot of food for thought, snippets of good writing to develop as well as a palette of techniques to continue playing with.‘ Emmanuelle Waeckerle
