Today a most inspiring group of people attended my Writing for Wellbeing workshop at York Yoga Studio. Everyone came with an openness and enthusiasm to try new ways of approaching wellness and writing. There was such positive energy in the room that we easily wrote our way through quite a number of activities, and it was most gratifying to hear that many people intended to continue practicing the activities at home to see what new ideas and insights they can find. At the end we all felt a little more mindful, a little more calm, and had spent good time together.
It is groups like this that make my work as a teacher of Writing for Wellbeing so worthwhile. I also learn something from every workshop, and it is a joy to meet people and come together in our journeys to wellbeing. I am most grateful to everyone who participated. There was such positive response to the idea of future workshops, we are planning to hold another one there in the early autumn. Watch this website for details, or follow my postings on Twitter @write4wellbeing.
I would also like to give a big thank you to Laurie at York Yoga Studio for providing the wonderful venue (and the tea and biscuits!), and for welcoming us all with her innate friendliness and energy.
