*FACILITATING AUTHENTIC WRITING – IN A SAFE SPACE…
FIRST HALF OF THE MEETING – we will continue in future meetings with the first half being on themes regarding matters of pollution. You can write your own short pieces, or even long pieces – or you could bring something that you have read somewhere. You can even just talk about it for a while – regarding one of your interests. Also you do not have to bring any pieces on pollution – you can just listen to anything others have brought.
THE SECOND HALF OF THE MEETING – this is for any pieces that you have personally written – whether it be poetry, just short little curious notes on something you saw in the street, in a park or wherever – or more serious writings that you’re working on. All is welcome. Or you can just listen – regarding the second half if you wish. JJ.
As per the top line – by facilitating – this includes – providing one with a space and encouragement to describe or express whatever…
Facilitating and understanding authentic writing
‘I write therefore I am’. or 'therefore I become'.
No experience necessary – could even be an advantage
**BUT YOUR WRITING CAN BE FACILITATED – IN SO MANY WAYS
*Writing of course – can access a form of personal development in ways which can catch one by surprise – regardless of whether one wanted anything published or not.
I've had a few pieces etc published.
One in particular that I was pleased with – a short story in a book called ‘RD Laing – Creative Destroyer’ – published 1997’
I gave a short talk a few years back on BBC radio on 'Anxiety States'.
I write on authenticity & comedies on authenticity.
Had many decades of involvement with attachment theory, existentialism & alternative therapeutic communities (in London).
Apart from that – many years back – about 25 pieces published in relatively small circulation magazines (variously for discussion groups, poetry clubs and contemporary therapy organisations – in London). Also around another 10 articles on 2 of my websites – in the area of therapy & alternative therapeutic communities on one website – and on the surprising history of Dorset on another website.
