Reinvent Your Life – Online Expressive Writing Circle

An online writing circle guided by psychologist Dimitra Didangelou.

Dimitra’s approach through expressive writing techniques encourages life reflection, self-exploration and creative expansion.

The group is useful for all individuals, while the practice of expressive writing can particularly benefit those seeking to gain insight into their inner lives, increase self-awareness, listen to their inner voice and connect with their full creative potential.

The writing focuses entirely on tapping into our inner selves, without any concern for narrative structure or grammar rules.

Although we discuss in English, you do not necessarily have to write in English and you don’t have to be a native speaker in order to join. There is no need for previous writing experience.  

The group will welcome new members until December, but if you wish to participate later than December, you can ask for it as there might begin new groups and you will have priority. 

The first meeting will open with the following poem, which is going to be the basis for the rest of the writing:

 

Reinvent your Life

Charles Bukowski

 

Invent yourself and then reinvent yourself,

don't swim in the same slough.

invent yourself and then reinvent yourself and

stay out of the clutches of mediocrity.

 

invent yourself and then reinvent yourself,

change your tone and shape so often

that they can never categorize you.

 

reinvigorate yourself and accept what is

but only on the terms that you have invented

and reinvented.

 

be self-taught.

 

and reinvent your life because you must;

it is your life and its history and the present

belong only to you.
