‘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 6-week journey 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.
You will experience:
How to write from the body for inspiration and authentic, original writing
How you can write from your whole body not only from your brain/mind
How to set up some momentum with writing and drop into flow
You chose your level of engagement and are welcome as you are.
This course is open to all genders and abilities.
No experience in creative writing, movement or dance necessary, only curiosity and a willingness to experiment. The exercises can be adapted to any levels of ability.
The dates are:
* 9th of February 2021
* 16th of February
* 23rd of February
* 2nd of March

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

How can we write from our whole body not only from our brain?

We will listen deeply to the stories our bodies hold, move effortlessly between sensing, experiencing and moving to the page and back. We will play with automatic/ stream of consciousness writing, movements and prompts.

About me :
I am interested in the connection between our bodies and how we express ourselves creatively. I believe passionately in the healing power of creativity and in our birthright to creativity and a fulfilled sexuality. My intention is to support people to feel more empowered and alive and I bring my heart, passion and wisdom from my own healing journey and my experiences as a performance artist, writer, art therapist, sexological bodyworker, rebirther & creativity coach to my work and offerings.
Writing is my passion and my main creative expression. I have published two historic novels (‘The Puppet Boy of Warsaw’ (2013) and ‘The Eye of the Reindeer’ (2016) and am currently working on an erotic novel and a poetry collection.
I love facilitating creative spaces, such as WILD WRITE and ‘WRITING FROM THE BODY and building communities and supporting individuals with their unique creative expression.

I look forward to connecting with you!
ABOUT WRITING FROM THE BODY:
I feel the beauty of ‘Writing from the Body’, and the methodology it offers, is that it holds both the universality of us as humans who have an embodied experience in this life- all human live in and with a body- as well as our unique differences. For example, I am living and writing from a white body and this experience is vastly different to the experience of a person of colour, given the society we live in. That I am able-bodied and cis-gendered also shapes my experience and adds to my privilege.
‘Writing from the body’ can allow us to create dialogue about shared and different experiences and help us explore issues around health, sexuality, gender identity, race and cultural identity in deep and creative ways.
It can also support us to face, listen to and dismantle shame. It is inherently empowering.
Listening to my body I can hear my body’s stories and the stories of my ancestors- to let those stories flow onto the page means they become mirrored back to me and can be witnessed by myself and also be shared.
When we do this work in a workshop context, we can not only find refuge in our own writing and on the page, but also in the community of fellow explorers.
