      The Stories We Tell


The Stories We Tell workshops are neither creative writing workshops, nor therapy groups, but something unique and (people say) magical in between!

They're about how telling, or re-telling, your life's stories can offer insights that allow you to make the most of yourself and your life. They're about finding the connection, direction, creativity and purpose that lead to greater wellbeing. And they're about moving forward more easily and living your life more fully.

We're not currently running any face-to-face workshops, but we'll start again as soon as we possibly can. Meanwhile, we've got an exciting programme of short online weekend workshops for the autumn‚ and we're continuing with the fortnightly checkins. We hope you'll find something that suits you!

Fortnightly Checkins

We've been running these FREE Fortnightly Checkins since the start of the pandemic. Friendly and informal, they're a great way to stay connected. Join us on alternate Wednesdays at 6pm for a gentle hour of reflection and sharing. Sign up here for a regular reminder. Starting again 8 September.

Short Online Weekend Workshops:

We’ve been really surprised at how well Zoom has worked for us over the last year, having successfully adapted several popular workshops from our original programme into an online format for small groups. This autumn they take place over two days, Saturday and Sunday, from 10am to midday, then 2pm to 4pm. There are light tasks to complete during the mid-day break and overnight on Saturday. Places are limited to 12 people.

~ Life Stories On this ever-popular weekend we look at our personal and family histories, as well as the influence of significant people and events in our lives. By revisiting these stories we tell about ourselves and our lives we can gain a fresh perspective on who we are, and how we can manage the challenges of living in an increasingly uncertain world.

Life Stories: October 30/31 (Sat & Sun, 10-12, 2-4), Zoom, price £200

~ Writing From The Heart and More Writing From The Heart  We’ve seen creativity flourish on these writing workshops over the last year! Whether you have a particular writing project, are interested in writing for wellbeing, or simply want to develop your own 'voice', these workshops are for you.

They’re an opportunity to reflect on what it takes to speak authentically, to make strong connections with yourself and the world around you, and to experiment with different approaches to the stories you want to tell. This is a two-part programme, so you should start with Writing From The Heart. More here ...

Writing From The Heart: October 16/17 (Sat & Sun, 10-12, 2-4), Zoom, price £200

More Writing From The Heart: November 27/28 (Sat & Sun, 10-12, 2-4), Zoom, price £200
