Wolf at the Door Writing Weekend 2020
Sat 7th Nov : 10:00 am - Sun 8th Nov : 4:30 pm£25 – £90
We're not sure yet whether this event will go ahead online or in person at the Centre, as we're currently closed due to the Coronavirus outbreak, with partial re-opening planned for 1st September. We're updating the site regularly so please come back and check frequently, and join our mailing list to stay up to date with new and changed events.
No writing experience necessary, just a willingness to step through the door of the imagination. This weekend is inspired by Buddhist principles and practice and is open to all.
The weekend is non-residential and runs at the same times each day.
PricesThe price for the weekend is £90 standard rate; £60 concessionary; £25 age 18 - 25. Payment still a problem? As a small unfunded charity, the Centre relies on the generosity of people who come here, but we don't want to turn anyone away from our courses. Please contact the Centre Team on firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll work something out with you.
Discover Wolf at the Door writing workshops
Woven with the Dharma and laced with the unexpected . . .
Imagination is essential in the spiritual life; it makes available and harmonises the different energies within us. Wolf at the Door offers a friendly and nurturing way of exploring this through writing. You don’t have to share what you write, though doing so can be just the creative challenge some of us need!
