Offer: Writing and Meditation Workshop in Thailand
International Women’s Partnership for Peace and Justice (IWP) announces a 5 day StoryWork and Writing Retreat for women, from Sept 29 to Oct 2, 2009. This workshop is geared to any of us who are “seeking”; seeking more meaningfulness, a widened perspective, fresher insights, wholesome choices, ways to tap into inner wisdom or inner courage, seeking deeper self-awareness, new ways of seeing, new ways of being.
Story is central to the expression of the human condition. We can enjoy stories, and more importantly - learn from them, as they gift us the understanding of who and why we are, and what we can be. StoryWork is about connecting those overlooked, hurt or disconnected parts of ourselves in order to be more fully integrated. This helps us to lead more wholesome, meaningful, effective and creative lives.
Days will be divided into sessions for storywork and time for individual writing and reflection. Daily yoga, meditation and mindfulness practices will help us to create the space and peace within for our stories and writing to emerge.
The storywork and writing retreat will be co-facilitated by Dr. Marguerite Theophil, who regularly leads storywork workshops in India, and Ginger Norwood, facilitator with IWP.
Fees for the 5 day retreat are on a sliding scale of $125-$175 for women living in the Global South, and $200-$300 for women living in the Global North. Fees include delicious vegetarian meals, simple accommodation and transport to/from Chiang Mai and the training center.
