Overview

What lies unexpressed or unknown within us, controls and limits us. The workshop aims to help participants explore and express their life’s issues – their sorrows and joys, hopes and fears – through the use of various writing formats/genres. The process of playing with writing forms and content will help participants shed new light on long-standing issues that have become impediments to growth. Participants will grow in self-knowledge as well as empathy with the other. 

All of this will be through the use of creative writing tools, which make for a playful yet extremely meaningful engagement with long-standing issues for most participants. 

Transformation and change, however dramatic or quiet, is always therapeutic and healing, as this workshop will demonstrate. The experiential nature of the workshop is designed to give participants insights into their attitudes and behaviours, and to help them view life issues, and their way of handling them, in new and different ways. 

This 4-day workshop is of therapeutic value for all those who feel caught in a whirlpool of emotions or in an inflexible grid. 

While the workshop will be conducted in English, those more comfortable in Hindi writing and communicating can participate fruitfully too. 

At the end of this workshop, participants will emerge with a new understanding of themselves, their relationships, and some of their blind-spots. They will be able to look closely at what aspects of their own behaviour and relationships they must tend, mend, or end.

    Self-awareness through writing

    I found the workshop immensely rewarding. It uncovered life experiences I had left unexamined. The toolkit provided by Gouri, the mentor, was imaginative and cathartic. Thank you, Living Bridge!

    Diving deep

    Gouri’s unique combination of expertise, experience and insight created a safe space for participants to dive beneath the surface and explore their own hidden depths.. It has given me inspiration, perspective and new ways to express myself. Listening to others share their inner world through the writing exercises was extremely moving. It was a privilege to take part in this workshop

    Very Good

    My mentor was an entertaining person to listen to and the exercises that she suggested were very insightful about my own parts of myself that I do not acknowledge as much. It is worth it if one participates in the talks that were done and follows along on what she says with an open mind.
