Ce que vous allez faire
We will explore what life story writing is and how it differs from other modes of writing. Next, we will look at a range of techniques to employ that enhances our writing and makes our stories more compelling to read. Participants will then be given the option to write about an event from a particular age or phase of life or alternatively, write from an archetypal perspective eg embodying the fool, sage, creator, destroyer or other archetypes. I will be available during the writing component of the class to help participants find events to write about and guide them along the way. To finish up, everyone will be given the opportunity to share their story with the group if they wish to. There is also a labyrinth walk which contains archetypes to reflect on. They follow a development model which captures all of the aspects to a life journey from the fool through to integration. It can be done as a contemplative exercise as well as a way to inform your life story writing as you reflect on the different archetypal expressions life has taken you on.
I have studied Creative Writing & English at university, undertaken Teacher Training at the Rudolf Steiner College, which included biography work & I have a Certificate IV in Training & Assessing. Doing these studies birthed my passion. Presently, I run an annual week-long life story writing course, work with individuals to edit & help craft their memoirs & autobiographies. For over a decade I have employed life story writing in the work I do with community groups such as inmates, drug/alcohol rehabilitation clients, small business operators & people transitioning between employment.
Ce qui est inclus

The class will take place in a custom built, cosy yurt space which is light-filled, looking out onto bushland and whisper quiet. When it comes time to write one’s story there is the option to do so inside the space or to do so outside. Our location is within walking distance to the spectacular Mini Ha Ha waterfall. You can take a stroll down after the class and in the warmer months go for a refreshing swim.
