2020/2021 COVID: many of my face-to-face courses have been cancelled. What is below is in a ‘normal’ year. However I have developed and am still creating new and exciting (I think!) online courses. See below, and also the current calendar (more to be added).
Groupwork for adults: day workshops, weekend and week-long residential retreats and courses currently in creative and reflective writing, in poetry, the novel, Zen and poetry, in writing in psychospirituality, for therapy and personal growth, in exploration of ecosoul work (‘Horse Medicine’, or ‘Tongues in Trees’, for instance), and in the service of deep ecology. They take place on Exmoor and Dartmoor, in Cornwall, the Hebrides, Brittany and France. (Most popular, perhaps, have been the many workshops I lead that combine poetry/prose writing with being out in the natural world, gently walking.)
I keep forgetting to mention that for about 25 years now I’ve been leading an invitation-only advanced monthly poetry group, ‘Two Rivers’. Some of the original members are still with me, and many are now published.
It feels important to mention that I have a counselling qualification from my training in transpersonal psychotherapy (NB not to be confused with a psychology degree, which does not offer the therapeutic training). Because groupwork of any depth will sometimes stir stuff up, I want to reassure you that I create and hold a safe, nurturing and confidential space.
Online courses STORYMAKING: writing the novel; ELEMENTS OF POETRY; THRESHOLDS. New for the end of 2018 was the yearlong online course TONGUES in TREES. This is proving exciting and rich for all of us (we’ve just begun the 3rd group now, January 2021), and it will happen again, beginning on the winter solstice 2021.
Also seemingly very successful has been my Poetry, Nature & Mindfulness: Writing the Bright Moment 5-day online retreat. Dates for late 2021 coming soon.
New in 2021: Poetry & the Ensouled Life. Dates for late 2021 coming soon.
Also I offer workshopping sessions in The Poetry Lab.
2021: MENTORING, TUTORING & APPRAISAL ARE ON HOLD FOR THE MOMENT SO THAT I CAN DO SOME OF MY OWN WRITING
One-to-one mentoring, tutoring, coaching and consultancy in creative, reflective, and therapeutic writing, ecowriting, creativity and personal development through poetry, myth, archetype and story, and your own creative project; also individual ecopsychology, walking and talking therapeutic coaching, and mindfulness sessions. We co-design the content according to what you are looking for. These can all take place via email or face-to-face. Click here
Workshops for schools (& INSET days for teachers) drawing together creative writing, environmental awareness and emotional intelligence, often wholly or partly outdoors (I’ve been offering all my groupwork, adult and student, for 27+ years).
I also write a blog (not just on writing), and would be delighted if you signed up to receive that: http://roselle-angwin.blogspot.co.uk
