‘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/ mind?
In this workshop we will consciously tune into our bodies, using movement, breathwork, stretching, and playful somatic exercises to cultivate embodied writing. We will listen deeply to the stories our bodies hold, move effortlessly between sensing, experiencing, moving and the page and back to embodied being.
We will play with automatic/ stream of consciousness writing, prompts and themed writing.
No experience in creative writing, movement or breathwork necessary, only a willingness to experiment.

‘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
