Over the past couple of months I've been discussing poetry with my friend Brooke Sharkey and planning a series of workshops for people who would like to write but who have not yet started to.
We want to explore, over four sessions, what it means to live a poetic life, even in difficult times, how to bring poetry into our very way of being and moving through the world, alongside learning some of the core foundations, contemplations and technicalities of writing actual poetry. In this course you will observer and better understand your own internal process via meditations, prompts, visualisations and contemplations aimed to specifically guide you to your own creative inner resources. On top of the four sessions, we want to offer a 1:1 coaching/tutorial session.
By the end of the series of sessions you will have created three poems inspired by the prompts and activities undertaken in the workshops. You will have an understanding of what works for you creatively, and you will have access to meditations and embodiment practices to support your creative flow and aid you on your continuing journey.
We hope this opportunity will appeal to anyone who loves words, those looking to find or refine their poetic voice, and those who wish to learn by trying and exploring with others. Whether you are a poet or a person who would like to dabble, here is a kind, safe space to explore, learn and share.
We are offering four live and interactive sessions with Brooke Sharkey and myself plus a Free 1:1 session (either with Brooke or myself).
