Writing for Resilience: Creating your own shelter through creativity in nature

Writing for Resilience Poster

This course is rooted in the belief that cultivating creativity and personal resilience is a fundamental part of building a more socially and ecologically friendly future. We are living in a time of immense upheaval, where it is becoming harder and harder to nurture our sense of wellbeing and connection.

Developing tools to help us build a practice of grounding and joyful creativity is essential both for personal and community resilience.

Course participants will explore and develop a creative writing practice through a series of workshops designed to provide a ‘resilient writing toolkit’. This toolkit will be taught and practiced over the weekend, with the view that it can be taken and used as a resource for continuing your creative practice in the future.

This isn’t your average writing retreat! We want to give you a set of skills that will accompany and support you throughout your life, enabling you to connect to the land around you and foster a sense of belonging.

No prior writing experience is needed to participate – seasoned writers and total beginners are all welcome.

The Writing for Resilience workshops will include:

– Writing practices inspired by the surrounding mountains and ancient woodlands
– Independent creative writing practices
– Collaborative writing practices
– Group sharing, reflection and feedback sessions
– Mindfulness and creativity in nature workshops led in and around the Nantmor valley

And more! (Plus food from some incredible local chefs)

A form of mindful movement. It uses the everyday activity of walking as a mindfulness practice to help you become more aware of the sensations in your body. By tuning into your environment and the sensations in your body as you walk, it can help you to focus on the present moment.
