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.

    I have grown wiser through this workshop!

    The four-day workshop organized by Living Bridge and mentored by Ms. Gouri Dange was just incredible. I found it to be profoundly therapeutic. I have grown as a writer and as an individual too. I am now able to channel my healing through writing. I’m also discovering ways about myself as I continue working on the writing exercises taught in the workshop. Yes, it’s fantastic, because the writing exercises are for life and you can always go back to them. I would highly recommend this to any individual looking to find more meaning in their lives, who wants to grow or discover themselves, become more self-aware, or just wants a learning experience, then this is a must try. You won’t be disappointed and you will definitely come back for more! I, for one, am certainly looking forward to part 2 of this workshop, in case they do consider 🙂

    Gouri Ma’am was simply amazing. I’m truly in awe of her. She’s a wonderful human being. All the participants in the workshop were super nice too, beautiful souls. I learnt a lot from each one of them. Overall, my experience was just phenomenal and I will surely consider enrolling for more workshops here in the future!

    Grow and Stay

    The learnings from this workshop has stayed with me for months.
    It is like a fresh burst of mint that you carry within. It slowly keeps releasing its juices and gives you heightened taste for your life, your self and keeps building you block by block long after it is over!!
    Thank you Gouri Dange and Living Bridge for adding power to me.

    A deep and reflective experience to treasure

    I joined this workshop straight after the paws and pens workshop and I was glad that I did. The self reflection and expression that Gouri encouraged us to do in this workshop helped me go deeper into the parts of me that needed healing and expressing. This workshop came at just the right time at the beginning of 2021 and helped set the tone for 2021. Although parts of myself were hard to confront and acknowledge, Gouri’s compassionate and non-judgemental approach helped me go a lot deeper than I had imagined I would. Her narratives and examples of written work from previous groups helped a lot too. The group was so supportive and kind and reading the posts from others helped me to address my own fears and concerns. The new perspective gained from reading about some one elses pain and how they addressed it was indeed a gift. I would recommend this workshop to anyone who is interested in exploring their emotional journey, conflicts, sadness, fears and concerns.

    Peaceful!

    It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of this workshop, headed by Dear Gouri! The way Gowri showed interest, direction and careful concern regarding the self- awareness and growth process that each participant goes through while on this workshop, was exemplary. Heartfelt thank you to her and the team at LivingBridge for facilitating such a wonderful session every single day for the workshop duration. Looking forward to more such sessions in the future.
