Lapidus London Meetup - March 28th 2020 (CANCELLED)

EDIT: THIS MEETING IS NOW CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 / CORONAVIRUS. ALL FUTURE LAPIDUS LONDON MEETINGS ARE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.
 
 
The next London Lapidus meeting is on Saturday March 28th at 1pm to 3.30pm upstairs in the Poetry Cafe. Give yourself dedicated time to write in a group. Every one of us will be doing the same thing, writing.
 
This offers the opportunity to relax and explore what may be going on for us and maybe obtaining some clarity and positive thoughts to take home.
 

You may pick up some ideas for your own personal writing or if you run writing for well being groups yourself.

Kent & Sussex Writing & Wellbeing Network: Clowning Around with Words & Playfulness Rebellion

St Leonards on Sea, Saturday 14th March

This will be a two-part session.

Part One, starting at 10am, will be Clowning Around with Words, led by Hazel Ettridge.
Hazel writes: There's a lovely quote from Winnie the Pooh, which hopefully sums up what we'll be doing in the first half of the next meeting. "When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it."
Clowns and Bears of Very Little Brain have a lot in common!

Part Two, after the break, will be Playfulness Rebellion, led by Felicity Stephen and Nicky Torode. Felicity and Nicky write: “We’ll be inviting you to engage in active play through a mime/guessing game, to recall and reflect on a playful moment from your life and to work together to iinvent ways to bring more play into your lives through a Playfulness Rebellion…. And, of course, some writing! There’ll also be an opportunity for each of us to share something playful we may have incorporated in our own recent writing for wellbeing sessions.”
