Unleashing the Splendour Within

A Crash Course in Life-Writing

With workshop leader, Eva Allen.

Words, indeed, are the seeds that grow our world.  Often the spoken words of others take root in such a way that the emotional and spiritual vitality of our life is hampered by uncertainty, discontent, or fear. When this happens, dreams die, creativity withers. By choosing the words that define our experience, we can, with our own hand and heart, REWRITE the chapters of our life and set free the splendid purpose that lies within.

This workshop helps us break old patterns, find new hope, and discover the power, health and happiness that lies within while honing our craft as creative writers. The unique interactive exercises are a means to finding new energy and purpose through the release of personal creativity.
