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.

    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.

    Luck by chance?

    I believe there are no coincidences in life. Some things are meant to happen if we listen carefully to the voice of the universe. I was planning to enroll in one of Gauri Daange's creative writing workshops but accidentally stumbled upon this one. While my brain was pushing me to enroll in the creative writing workshop, the pull towards this one was sharp. Defying every logic and reason my mind threw at me, I still went ahead and enrolled while I felt there was no burning need to do this workshop. And thank God, I did so! What a beautiful way to detox the mind in just 4 sittings. The mentor has brilliantly chosen and paced the different writing activities, helping us journey through the mindscape that has gathered moss of different textures over the years, blinding us to some of the most obvious truths. I believe I came out with a kind heart!

    Fully enjoyed the workshop. The pace at which it was conducted helped me slow and reflect on some of the real and important things in life. Big thanks to Gouri and Living Bridge!

    Late to board the train

    This was something completely new for me. I was allowed to open closets I had forgotten about and process the emotions I had not been in touch with.
