Let this poem be a hand upon your shoulder, consists of workshops that can help you explore feelings, and build your resilience as you connect with others in these challenging times.
The theme for the workshops was inspired by a poem written by Deborah Cooper.
We will use carefully selected poems as a springboard for writing, reflection and conversations.
The workshops are for anyone who wants additional resources, in these unsettling times. It is for those who enjoy creativity, journalling, writing for personal or professional development.
No prior knowledge of poetry or expressive writing is required; you simply need to be to share, reflect and experiment with words in a supportive environment.
“There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.” – Aldous Huxley

Thank you so much for putting on these workshops on poetry therapy. I'd never done any, or heard of it, before I joined your sessions. They have been absolutely invaluable for me. 🙂 They've helped me in my personal life, and fed my creative life, and even contributed in a great way to my professional life! I feel so lucky. I love your approach and facilitation, the materials, and the contributions from the group. Definitely one of the best things about Lock Down!
