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.

Joliane Allaire uses theatre techniques as pedagogical tools in education settings. For the last decade she has evolved with the Living Histories Ensemble where she explores intersections of Playback Theater, Theater for the Oppressed, Theatre for the Living, and Developmental Transformation.

Lisa Ndejuru is a psychotherapist, psychodramatist, and theatre practitioner. Her research – creation explores survival and life, stories and silence, persecution, genocide, war and dislocation through deep listening, storytelling, and play.

This workshop is FREE. It will be held on ZOOM. Space is limited. To register: awe@atwaterlibrary.ca.

This online workshop is being produced in partnership with the Quebec Writers’ Federation.

The Atwater Library and Computer Centre is located on the traditional and unceded territory of the Kanien’keha:ka.
