When we translate our experience into writing, it can make sense of our lives, reconnect us with our deepest selves and effect lasting transformation. In a rich and inspiring exploration using journals, fragments, memoirs, poems, stories, we will retrieve and share memories, encourage creative thinking, celebrate our epiphanies and invite in a more radiant future. As the poet Rumi put it: “Climb out on the roof if you want more light. If you don’t want to live depressed any longer, move into the sun; the sun!”
Rosie has been running writing workshops for over twenty years and is passionate about the healing power of the creative arts. She has taught at the Universities of East Anglia and West of England, trained in counselling, and run writing groups on Skyros, Greece and in community settings worldwide. Her spiritual life has taken her to India and a Sufi training in California. Widely published in poetry and prose, her own memoir 'The Glass Mother' (Unthank Books) came out in 2017.
