Description

Mired 2 Moving is a deep listening and storytelling space where everyone comes in with what they are holding and where they want to get to.

Our intention is to explore and strengthen your relationship with your writing. We work with elements of Journaling (awareness of, attention to, and honouring thought), loving kindness meditation (grounding and cultivating space within), social presencing theatre (getting unstuck), playback theatre (listening to self and other, spontaneity, creativity , improvisation) and guided visualization (symbols and the unconscious).

Come as you are, bring what you hold.

Lisa and Joliane of Montreal Living Histories will help us reflect about and play with creativity, the senses, self-care, pleasure, and creating writing together.

This FREE workshop will be held on Zoom. Space is limited.
