Writing For Wellness ๑ The Power of Mindfulness & Writing

A great deal of anxiety comes from the rush and hurry of a turbulent mind, which jumps recklessly to unwarranted conclusions, rushes to judgments, and often is going too fast to see events and people as they truly are. Such a mind keeps the body under continual stress, and can lead to a multitude of physical, emotional, and mental conditions.

This transformative class, offers you a wonderful opportunity in a safe and supportive space, to slow down your mind―the first purpose of meditation―through a highly effective and scientifically proven writing technique, known as Expressive writing. To help you move on from whatever is keeping you awake at night, by expressing and letting go of the draining thoughts and feelings, you might be harbouring about challenging and upsetting experiences you’ve had.

You will leave the class feeling relaxed, revitalized, and open to respond to life’s difficulties not as a source of stress, but as natural challenges that will pass, as all things do. No prior writing or mindfulness experience is required to benefit from the workshop, and participants are free to write in the language of their own choice.
All workshop materials will be provided, all you need to bring along is an open mind and a willingness to dive deeply within.

* Please note: The writing exercises can trigger deeply buried emotions and memories, so if you’re currently afflicted by, or are being treated for a mental condition, first consult with your
medical practitioner to determine whether the class is suitable for you before signing up.

Writing & Mindfulness - What s the Connection?
More than three decades ago, James Pennebaker, Ph.D., one of America’s most distinguished research psychologists, demonstrated that college students who wrote expressively about traumatic experiences subsequently visited the doctor for illness half as often as the control group.

This groundbreaking research led to further studies with results proving that Emotional writing―or what is often described in research studies as Expressive writing―can help: Enhance immune function, lower blood pressure, decrease heart rate, reduce depressive symptoms and feelings of pain, lower stress and anxiety levels, improve sleep, boost self-esteem and so much more!
