Wolf at the Door Creative Writing Weekend

Sat 15th Oct : 9:30 am - Sun 16th Oct : 4:30 pm

£30 – £90
Two men on beach

A Buddhist-inspired Creative Writing Workshop

Imagination is essential in the spiritual life; it makes available and harmonises the different energies contained within us. Wolf at the Door offers a friendly and nurturing way of exploring all this through writing.

Everyone Welcome

If you have been to a workshop before, this weekend offers a space to reconnect and explore the art of your writing in supportive conditions. Newcomers are warmly welcome too, as you do not need any prior writing or meditation experience. You will be invited to share what you write, reading out to the group – you don’t have to, but it can be a very pleasurable and deepening experience.

More Information

• The weekend is non-residential and runs at the same times each day.
• Arrive at 9:30 to meet, relax, settle in with a drink, then it’s a prompt 10 am start
• The retreat builds over two days so booking for single days is not possible
• Bookings will close at 3 pm on 14th October – maximum number of bookings is 25
• Please bring your own vegetarian or vegan food for lunch, or support one of the local cafés or takeaways
