Soulcare Session – Creative Writing and Meditation

I was lucky enough to run a writing workshop for Soulcare Sessions Newcastle last Sunday. I’ve been a fan of the soulcare sessions for month, taking part in a variety of activities from pilates, to flower arranging and learning about essential oils.

This time I was running the session and we discussed literature and creative writing as a tool for our self-care practice. Whether it’s disappearing into a new book, writing lists to get over our worries or writing a short story just for ourselves, it’s all a great way to add to our self-care routine.

The Soulcare Sessions are great for meeting new people and trying new things. The group on Sunday was a real mix of women and we discussed all sorts of topics.

I asked everyone to think of a book that meant something to them and by the end we had a great list of books on a variety of different topics. What we did notice is that each book was either written by a woman or included strong female characters.

The workshop involved a number of different writing activities and finished with a relaxing meditation session before our final time to write.
