Notes: INSPIRATIONS - MOVE YOUR BODY TO WRITE FROM YOUR HEART This is a taster day for what we hope will become a regular workshop for the Southern Counties to enjoy. Katrina Dunbar is an experienced creative writing teacher and Gay Murphy has been teaching 5Rhythms in this area for 12 years. We have collaborated before and look forward to doing so again. The theme of the day will be to release your body through dance to be able to let go of the need to write 'perfectly' , in other words to let go of the expectations, both historical and in the now, of your ability to write....there is no judgement or expectation on our part and we only wish for you to dance and write and be inspired by the freedom that these activities can bring. Booking : call Katrina on 07952 562248 or Gay on 07969 869924 for more information. Please bring your choice of a light lunch with you (otherwise there are local shops close by). There is plenty of parking behind the Hall. Unfortunately we cannot make tea or coffee there, so if you want a hot drink, please bring a thermos with you.
