Do you find it hard to ‘let go’ of thoughts, feelings or worries that crop up during your day?
Are you aware that you’re repeating a pattern of behaviour that’s causing you unhappiness or harm?
Or perhaps you’re holding on to other people’s opinions, rather than listening to your own?
I invite you to join me on Saturday 31 October from 10:00 – 11:30 GMT for this root&branch workshop, with the theme of ‘Releasing for Autumn’.
Every season, nature presents us with opportunities to learn from it and integrate its lessons into our lives.
Each root&branch seasonal workshop is designed to highlight what we can learn from nature in this season, and give you ways to bring that knowledge into your life.
For this workshop on October 31, our theme is ‘Releasing for Autumn’.
The live workshop will take place over Zoom with a group of like-minded creative people who care about nature and are interested in how they can learn from the world around them.
Over the course of 90 minutes, you will:
- Take part in an easy warm up to get yourself ready for the lesson
- Learn about the power of release: what do we mean by ‘release’ when it comes to our thoughts and feelings?
- Learn how nature can teach us about this process – and how to do it gracefully
- Learn about the importance of release and letting go in developing an effective creative practice
- Spend time in reflective writing to understand what you wish to release, and why
- Take part in a guided art activity to practise the process of letting go
- Reflect openly on your experience in a small group
- Have the opportunity to ask questions and gain answers about your barriers to letting go
- Finish the 90 minutes feeling lighter, brighter and more connected
I can’t attend live but I still want to access the workshop. Will there be a recording?
Yes, there will be a recording of the session that will be emailed to attendees and available to watch for seven days after the event.
Will there be closed captions?
Yes. I will be using the free tool Web Captioner, integrated with Zoom, to provide captions for the session. These captions will then be used to generate a transcript.
What do I need to bring to the workshop?
I recommend you bring a notebook or sketchbook, a pen and pencil. If you would like to bring further art materials such as pens or paints, then feel free to do so for the guided activity, but they aren’t necessary.
I also recommend having some water and a hot drink to keep you hydrated and provide a point of focus for some of the exercises.
How do I get the link for the Zoom meeting?
Once you’ve purchased, your email will be added to the invitations list. Within 24 hours, you’ll be sent a calendar invitation which includes the details of the call, including the link and password. You can also add this invite to your own calendar so you know the time is blocked out!
