This course was so popular I am running it a second time. The imagination is vaster and richer than we know. This creative workshop, with pioneering storyteller and writer Sally-Pomme Clayton, uses writing as a form of meditation, and explores myths and fairytales through guided creative tasks and structured exercises that help access the imagination, connect with our creativity, and discover what images we have inside us. The sessions draw on a variety of sources to inspire creativity: the senses; images in myths and dreams; our surroundings; fairytales; folklore; family stories; cultural and social history; memories you feel safe to explore. The first session introduces the process and ideas of mythic imagery. The next two sessions focus on aspects of fairytales, and the final two sessions focus on aspects of myth. The sessions are supportive, enabling, calming, and thoughtful.  Sessions are held on zoom and your mic will be muted.
The 5 sessions can be taken individually, or as a course. The sessions will always start with the same meditative writing exercises which will be repeated each time. Then Sally-Pomme will explore a different theme each week.  Sally-Pomme will use in particular some techniques she devised while working with No Panic self-help group (from 2013 to 2018) using creative writing processes to encourage well-being. The group found the work so valuable they did not want to stop, and with support from Apples and Snakes the group produced several things, among them: ‘The No Panic Book of Not Panicking’ which can be read online:
