Writing and Living the Poetry of Your Life.

Facilitator: Jay Ramsay.
Venue: Studio, Salisbury Centre, 2 Salisbury Road, Edinburgh, EH16 5AB.
Dates: Saturday 28 - Sunday 29 September 2019.
Time: Registration: 9.30am-10am. Retreat: 10am-5pm.
Event Description: In this challenging and destabilizing time of change, we need to open up more and more to our own guidance, our own wisdom and our own authority. We can find this in what we create, out of the most authentic and even radical part of who we are, that we can also see as the poet in us.

Here is a space for you to open up to your own inner riches through poetry and creative writing, alongside your own personal development. Using a series of tried and tested exercises designed to spark and unravel; your own expression, you will be working through imagination and feeling, on your own, with each other, and in the natural environment. Thee will also be time for one to one work and feedback/tuition within the group sessions. Come home feeling recharged and more able to find the way on your journey through life.

‘You made me feel very valued and listened to…you are very authentic and enabling of other’s human flourishing.’

- Prof. Angie Titchen.

'Jay Ramsay is one of our most eloquent and passionate visionary poets, someone who knows that the highest role of poetry in a catastrophic time is to keep the flames of spirit burning steadily.'
