Creativity is at the heart of resilience; a key component for rebalancing, recalibrating and rebounding. Becoming more resilient enables us to thrive and confidently deal with life vs. being overwhelmed and drained by it. This workshop will help you discover your internal capacity for resilience through the power of words and expressive creative writing, exploring what it takes to be more resilient.

Story telling and artistic creative expression are tools that help to give voice to capture our human experience, literally and visually. By creating a safe space that supports growth through self expression the workshop explores the components of resilience in an environment that is enriching and liberating.

Techniques are shared to help tap into expressive creative writing to fuel and enhance our individual inherent ability to bounce during times of adversity. The session includes self-reflection, hands on expressive writing exercises followed by group feedback and discussion.
