Writing for Self Growth Workshop

Writing for Self Growth Workshop, April 24 – 28, 2019 at HWR, Kumaon Himalayas, Uttarakhand

Join me for the 4th edition of the Writing for Self Growth Workshop at the Himalayan Writing Retreat, Village Satkhol (Nainital District), Uttarakhand.

The workshop has been put together using scientifically validated practices and theories from the field of psychology. The art and science of psychology, combined with the therpauetic quality of nature, provide a powerful healing and growth experience in a safe, non-judgmental space. (You can read reviews of previous participants at the link provided at the end of this writeup.)

Through a host of different exercises participants at this workshop get an opportunity to self reflect, process some difficult emotions, gain insights into their thoughts and feelings, and possibly find a new perspective or a better way to deal with life’s challenges. While participants go through various exercises as a group, their personal journey is private. Sharing is optional.

In addition, through meditation sessions, mindfulness and visualisation exercises we try out ways to calm the mind. For those so inclined, refreshing walks and hikes through the forests or mountain/star gazing in clear skies often provide a greater sense of wellbeing.

The program is open to all individuals over the age of 18. Writing experience or expertise is not required. A public sharing or publishing goal is also not required.
