This weekend, I had the pleasure of attending a workshop facilitated by Dr. Penny Shutt at Pinetum Gardens, Cornwall.
In May, I became a member of Lapidus International, an organisation for people with an interest in writing for wellbeing. This was the first of their events that I was able to attend..and what a wonderful way to begin.
Penny accompanied us through a variety of inspiring exercises exploring these two closely connected themes. Works by David Whyte, Roselle Angwin and others were interspersed amongst our own freshly gathered words.
The tranquil surroundings of the Courtyard Garden provided an ideal setting and backdrop for our work, asking deeper questions of ourselves and our location.
