ALL OUR RELATIONS
an ‘Earth Stories’ outdoor writing workshop
with ROSELLE ANGWIN
DATE: Easter Monday, April 17th (2018: Monday May 7th, tbc)
TIME: 10am – 1pm
VENUE: Higher Beenleigh Barn, between Harberton & Diptford (directions given on booking)
BOOKINGS (required in advance, with fee) direct to Roselle:
As part of the Transition Town Totnes’ ten-year celebrations ending on Earth Day, April 22nd, the ‘mind, body, spirit’-focused Inner Transitions are offering various events. This one, ‘All Our Relations’, is an opportunity to explore ‘writing the earth’.
Spring, it is said, walks towards us at 2mph. Come and meet spring and the new growth of Eostre, time of the Mother Goddess with all the fertility and fecundity of this time of year, in this hidden part of the South Hams. Climb into the skin of hazel, gorse, celandine, apple tree, pebble, hare, magpie, wild garlic, new bluebell, returning swallow. NB In 2018, after the success of 2017, we will be focusing primarily on trees. Give them a voice.
Come and look with wilder eyes, listen with the ears of a poet, loosen the grip of personness. Come and refind your deep connection with ‘our other relations’, and write.
This is about exploration, so you don’t need any expertise in story-writing or poetry – just a willingness to bring an open heart – and a notebook. (You also don’t need to be involved in the Transition Town network to sign up for this workshop.)
PLEASE BRING WATERPROOFS AND STURDY BOOTS, and SOMETHING TO SIT ON.
There may be an opportunity to share your work as part of the closing celebration in an evening of poetry song and story on April 21st, in Totnes.
