Writing Ourselves Home

is a journey back to the home of our hearts. Through reading and writing poems, we use a gentle process to listen to, and hear, our hearts' whispers and shouts; support them to open; and, begin leaning into their guidance.

The reality of our daily lives means we often ignore our hearts, shut them off, or silence them in order to survive. We may be living outside, and away from, our hearts without realising it.

Over 9 months, we use poetry to carve a path back home to ourselves.

We connect with our bodies: writing with them, and from them, to discover and express the stories and truths within us. We craft these into poems, using a range of poetic forms. We use different creative and writing exercises to do so.

This course offers the dual focus of: writing as heart expression and learning to work with poetic form and structure. It demystifies poetry forms and supports you to remove any fears or blocks, you might have around working with them.

You do not need any previous writing experience, only the desire to explore, learn, write, and the commitment to make the journey back home to yourself.

Registration is open until the end of March. If you happen to miss the March live workshops, you can catch up via the recordings.

I don't quite have words for what the past nine months have meant to me —this circle saved my life. I will be forever grateful for the space you provided for immense healing and blossoming. It was so unexpected... Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this unexpected gift of meeting and holding myself through words on a page, and, of course, through the safe space with magical people. It will be with me forever. Authenticity is a gift because it serves as permission for others to do the same —you do change lives! I'm quite certain that no one left your course unchanged.
