Mindful Writing - a Workshop with Tom George

Tickets - £20.00 

Limited tickets available on the door

This workshop combines creative writing with mindfulness, allowing you to free your creativity in a pressure-free environment. Mindfulness encourages us to leave our self-judgement on one side and go with the process. Taking inspiration from the senses, nature, the body and the present moment, we learn to create in a playful open-ended way. The workshop will include fun, collaborative exercises as well as opportunities to be more reflective individually. The workshop facilitator is Tom George, a writer and arts worker with a special interest in wellbeing and mental health.
