Writing the Body with Rebecca Hurst
12 April 2022 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
During this 90-minute online workshop we will use creative writing to explore what it feels like to be embodied, and how gesture and movement is connected to our thinking and language-making brains.
Creative writing is one way we can carve time for ourselves out of our busy and often stressful lives.
Whether you want to try something new, step out of your everyday world for an hour or so, or reflect on your own life and experiences, this workshop is designed to offer breathing space.
Research has shown that writing can help increase feelings of happiness and wellbeing. Expressing ourselves in writing is both a creative and restorative act. In a supportive and friendly environment, you will work alongside the Manchester-based writer, Rebecca Hurst, to reconnect with yourself on the page. No previous writing experience is necessary.
Please book on maximum 1 workshop a month so we can engage and support as many MFT staff as possible with Lime’s unique creative wellbeing offer.
