Writing from the Body
A weekend of creativity and play
‘Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?’
― Mary Oliver
Muscles hold memory and the body doesn’t lie. When we write from our bodies, we reach a deeper, more authentic place in our work. Spend a weekend exploring the stories only you can tell. Write from your core. Write into the dangerous places. Find the wilder parts of yourself, let that loose on the page and see how your writing starts to sing.
Using a range of literary and meditation techniques, we will move gently through hesitation to find a deeper place from which to write and create work that is powerful, honest and passionate.
This is a hands-on workshop. Bring what you need to write.
The workshop will be held over two days as a non residential retreat.

“I am so grateful for Natalie’s workshops. I found them incredibly helpful and instructive. She taught us some great tools for creating a story that I have continued to use and, through these, she gave me the belief that I could write. Receiving tips for writing from an expert was the aim of the workshops obviously but the overriding memory I have from all of them was one of huge fun and great energy. If you have the chance to go to a workshop with Natalie, please go and give your soul a real tonic; learn whilst being uplifted.” Emma Nyman, Ubud
