Working creatively with depression - A 9-week online course
12 May 2022
Thursdays, 18:00 - 20:30 BST
"Bring all of yourself to this door.
Bring only a part,
and you have brought nothing at all."
Modern culture and the pace and pressures of modern life leave little time and give little emphasis to the importance of tending to our roots - that which sustains us - and the unique spark at the centre of our being that fans the creative fire fuelling our growth.
And yet, tending to that which sustains is crucial to our ability to strengthen those roots and feel secure, held and nourished in our creative unfolding, throughout challenging as well as enriching times.
Over this two-day immersion, we will connect with the body’s knowing, the wisdom of the heart and our mythic imagination to reconnect with and explore:
Our roots – the elements in our lives that are elemental to our sense of belonging, being, place in the world and give shape, meaning and substance to our lives
The interconnectedness between our roots and purpose – the spark and creative impulse at the core of our being and lives
This exploring will be supported by a range of practices, the foremost of which is somatic movement, active imagination, deep inner listening, improvisation, creative expression, dialoguing and reflection.
Held over two days, the workshop will run from 10am – 5pm each day (4:30 Sunday). Open to all - i.e. no experience required - the workshop will be limited to a small group size to allow for a rich and meaningful journey.
