‘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.

‘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 one day 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, bestelling 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
