Writing for Self Growth – Workshop
The aim of this workshop is to help participants de-stress, introspect, heal and grow in the peace and quiet of the Kumaon Himalayas.
The Writing for Self Growth Workshop is meant for all those people who are looking to connect with themselves. Specially designed writing exercises that combine the science of psychology with the healing power of writing will help you sort through various emotions, thoughts and memories. While you will be in the company of other people, your inner journey will be a private one. You will undertake this journey in a distraction free, safe space with a road map that you can follow.
The process of self exploration and growth is never done. As we go through life, new experiences – some welcome, others unwelcome – challenge us. One of the main aims of the workshop is to equip you with a structure that you can use. With that, you can to continue with the process of self exploration and growth once you are back home.
While the workshop involves writing, no one’s writing will be evaluated. Sharing is optional. Basic writing skills are all that you will need.
Being in quiet, natural surroundings is therapeutic. Add to that writing for self understanding and self growth. Through a host of different creative writing exercises participants at this workshop will get an opportunity to self reflect, gain some insights into their thoughts and feelings, and possibly find a new perspective or a better way to deal with life’s challenges.
In addition, through meditation sessions, mindfulness and visualization exercises we will try out ways to calm the mind. For those so inclined, refreshing walks and hikes through the forests or mountain/star gazing in clear skies may also provide a greater sense of well being.
The program is open to all individuals over the age of 18. Writing experience or expertise is not required. A public sharing or publishing goal is also not required.
