A workshop exploring song-writing and poetry as a form of activism.

- Increase the positive impact you could have in the world
In this workshop you will learn how to express yourself and share a personal message by writing your very own personal manifesto! A manifesto is a declaration of your core values and beliefs, what you stand for, and how you intend to live your life. It could be a statement of principles, a call to action or bringing awareness to a cause you believe in.
The tools we’ll use:
We'll be incorporating tried and tested practices such as journaling, group sharing, self-enquiry, breath-work and meditation. We'll also be exploring creative tools such as poetry, drawing, song-writing and dance. These will be interspersed with key teachings and coaching techniques.
We offer a safe space to get curious, open up and discuss with others, aspects of your life you’re finding challenging or simply want to improve. Naturally it is a completely confidential space, where individuals can openly share their feelings and thoughts with the option of anonymity.
Your safety comes first.
Your safety is our main priority. For this reason, we may need to ask participants for some personal medical information, before we can confirm your place on the workshop. These are standard questions, there to protect your safety and everyone else involved. This information will only be shared on a need to know basis and will be GDPR compliant. We will also be undertaking other necessary safety measures, during and post-retreat.
We would highly recommend individuals with concerns relating to pre-existing mental health conditions, substance misuse and related disorders to seek immediate professional help.
