“I believe that writing poetry is a fundamental human activity, like dance or singing, something we need to do and of which we are deprived in the modern world. As a result, I believe there may be a poem-shaped hole in our lives”
Kate Clanchy, poet and teacher.
As we embark on a new year, join Creative Coach and Supervisor Auriel Majumdar for a thought-provoking workshop that will explore reading and writing poetry as activity that we can use for ourselves and to support our clients. This interactive and co-creative session will consider some of the theory underpinning the uses of poetry in coaching, offer ideas for working with coachees and will guide you to write your own poem reflecting on the old year and looking forward to the year ahead.
Come along to be nourished and uplifted by 90 minutes of poetry, reflection and sharing. Together let’s fill the poem-shaped hole in our lives. No experience of writing required, just curiosity and a willingness to experiment.
