Write Your Mind Workshops
Writing for Wellbeing in a Group Setting
Workshops are held in a tranquil period home set in quiet gardens in Lyndhurst in the New Forest. You will be free to wander about the garden in warm weather and find a spot to do some of the set exercises, if you choose. Lunch and refreshments are provided, with home-made cakes, and included in your workshop fee. Materials are also provided. All you need bring are an open mind and a willingness to give it a go!

Remember - no previous writing experience is necessary - you need not read anything you have written out loud, and whatever you write will be right for you.

What Workshop Participants have Said:
"It was a remarkable day...by far the greatest benefit was to my own self-care and development. Jo provided a calm stimulating enviroment in which people could participate to whatever depth they wished in a non-judgemental group. This is a workshop that I will attend again as part of my own self-care."
"How well you, Jo, held us all; how gentle and supportive your voice was and how you balanced your interventions with space for us all to just be - thankyou!"
"Wonderful day. Real abundance and generosity. Wonderful environment, safe and relaxed. Gently unfolding exercises to help release thinking and feeling."
"The day exceeded my expectations. I discovered ways into writing I had not anticipated which will be great for me to revisit and also good to use with clients".
"I felt I had space to stop and take some time for myself. The sharing really contributed to the learning!"
"Thanks for this Jo and for a really lovely day.... nourishing in every way".
"The nurturing nature of the workshop and trust and sharing amongst participants worked well".
