Great news! for last Saturday's Write from the Heart workshop participants (as well as those of you who hoped to come but couldn't make it) who asked when we'd be doing it again. I had to give the question some thought. And having had an opportunity to do so, the short and sweet answer is the next four Saturdays, beginning next Saturday, 25 February.

Each workshop will run from 11 am to 4 pm, with a one-hour lunch break, during which you're free to do as you like — go to any number of fine cafés and restaurants in the area, grab a takeaway sandwich to enjoy Behind the Blue Door or bring a lunch from home, or visit the nearby Grange Gardens or wander the twittens of Lewes with others or alone. It's your hour to do as you like.

After all, each of these Saturday workshops is a mini-retreat to give yourself the time, space and nourishment to recharge your batteries and to begin to give creative expression to your inner truths in the company of other warmhearted folk.

And there's plenty of time on both ends of each workshop to accommodate travel from London, Hastings, Eastbourne, W. Sussex, Kent, etc., particularly as we're just a few minutes' walk from the Lewes Railway Station. There are also lovely bed & breakfasts and hotels within a minute's walk in case you might be coming from further abroad and would like to make a writerly weekend out of coming to Lewes.

While all four of the workshops share my usual approach towards writing — nurturing a sense of inner well-being and authenticity by way of getting in touch with our inherently creative selves, etc. — each workshop will have a slightly different theme, as noted by the workshop titles, below:

  • Saturday, 25 February:
    Moving Beyond Fear — Finding & Keeping Your Writing Voice (as with the others, this is an ideal workshop whether you're brand-new to writing or an experienced pro!)
  • Saturday, 3 March:
    Gathering Seeds for Self-Exploration & Expression
  • Saturday, 10 March:
    Reconnecting with Your Soul via the Written Word
  • Saturday, 17 March:
    Activating & Fulfilling Your Creative Potential

Join us for one, two, three or all four of the workshops
by clicking here to book your place. The fee for each workshop is £45. However, if you book all four, you can join us for each of the next four Saturdays for £150, total, saving yourself £30 while you kickstart your writing going into spring. Four mini-writing-retreats for just £150 ... book now!

What better way to embark upon, or to further develop, your writing (or mindfulness) practice?

Places are likely to go quickly, as it's that time of year, so gather your low-carbon-footprint writing supplies — a notebook, a couple pens and perhaps a bottle of water or some such liquid to wet your whistle while you write as a means to reconnect with your authentic self while giving full expression to the truth of your own experience in this sometimes crazy world.

We look forward to seeing and writing with you very soon, ideally on each of the next four Saturdays! Call me on 07971 774151 or write if you have any questions.

With warm regards,

Sean
