Activities at The Skyros Centre, Greece

WL: Curative Writing with Kylie Fitzpatrick

Sat 4 - Sat 11 Jun 2022

Curative Writing is a series of unique practices designed to take us beneath the noisy mind to that quiet, endlessly creative place within that is always available to us: we need only to know the way there.

Writing of any kind is a portal to the inner, which can be neglected in our complex, messy, and richly layered lives. Writers have always been drawn to this place of wonder within: where stories are made; where our own voice of wisdom can be heard with absolute clarity.

Neuroscience is only now catching up with what writers and thinkers have always known; that writing is good for us: it calms the anxious mind, it finds meaning when a personal or global narrative might seem senseless, it restores the balance of inner and outer.

You do not have to be a 'writer' to write, only to be curious about your own potential for transformation. The course will guide you through a series of personal writing techniques created to bring our inner and outer lives into balance. And Skyros is only the beginning of the adventure: you can take everything you learn home with you and continue to make your own discoveries!
