Mindful Writing Residential Retreat
October 4 @ 2:00 pm - October 7 @ 3:30 pm£375.00
Mindful Writing Retreat with authors Joy Kenward and Ana Salote
A voyage of discovery for the imagination, an invitation to live adventurously. Learn how mindfulness can free your creative voice.
An opportunity for new or experienced writers to take advantage of the unique ambience of the Chalice Well, and try some of the mindful writing methods practised by facilitators Joy Kenward and Ana Salote.
Joy, who has a long association with Chalice Well, is a novelist, creative writing teacher, meditation practitioner and author of The Joy of Mindful Writing.
Ana writes for children and young adults, runs mindfulness meditation courses and has been nominated for several national awards for her The Waifs of Duldred trilogy.
In the peaceful atmosphere of the Chalice Well gardens and retreat house, writers will have the opportunity to connect more deeply with their individual and unique creative voices. There will be sessions for writing exercises and for sharing writing if you wish. Let’s step back for a while from old assumptions and established ways of working to come closer to the heart of our true creativity.
