Writing for Personal & Spiritual Growth

Today I led a Creative Writing for Personal and Spiritual Growth workshop at Wisdom Moon Holistic Centre, located in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. Wisdom Moon is devoted to individual spiritual development and healing through an enlightened education programme, presented in calm and peaceful surroundings allowing the heart to open, the mind to still and the body to relax.  Wisdom Moon provides a place where like-minded souls can meet and offers a warm welcome, help and advice on the path and a range of services, therapies, classes and resources to aid wellbeing, spiritual work and personal growth as well as a lovely shop and tearoom.

Attendees on the workshop learned how to tap into their personal and spiritual path using creative writing with a focus on poetry and keeping a journal. 

Workshop Content included:

Short Meditation "Be here now" (courtesy of Ram Dass, author and spiritual teacher)
What is a Spiritual Path?
The scope of writing for personal and spiritual growth
Writing Forms - Poetry
Keeping a Journal
How a Journal is Different from a Diary
Journalling Tools
Online Journalling

This was the first creative writing workshop that the attendees had participated in and judging by their feedback they all felt enthusiastic about attending follow up writing workshops so plans are underway to establish a poetry writing course/workshop.
