Mindful Writing workshop: Create your ‘room of one’s own’.

Write for your eyes only and create your ‘room of one’s own’!

Announcing a two-hour workshop on the basics of Mindful Personal Writing.
June 19th, 5-7pm European Summer Time, 11am – 1 pm Eastern Standard Time
Write for your eyes only and create your ‘room of one’s own’:
We will be meeting on zoom, and you will learn the basic techniques of what I call Mindful Personal Writing.

In detail, you will: 

● Unlearn a few things (and maybe a few feelings) you learned about writing at school;
● Free your writing from learned constraints so it will be useful FOR YOU,
● Experience and exercise tested and powerful mindful writing techniques,
● Learn ways to implement mindful personal writing into your daily rituals.

All of this will help you to create a room of your own, as Virginia Woolf so famously called women to do. 

Space on this workshop will be limited to 12 women.

Free space: There will be two free spaces. 
40 € for one regular space, 
60€  for one sponsoring space, if you would like to join the workshop AND sponsor one half of a free space. 

To claim your space, contact me via this website, stating which kind of space you would like to apply for, and I will react accordingly by sending you an acceptance mail with details. 

A word about me:
I am Dr Claudia Elisabeth Fuchs.
I have been creating and facilitating writing workshops for a very long time, working with children, teenagers, adults, women’s groups, aged people, refugees, women in cancer rehab, medical personnel, teachers, students and many others. 
Being able to read and write saved my life as a child, and later on in my life I did academic work on language and writing acquisition and on the development of storytelling faculties in children. I worked in teacher taining for Primary School Teachers and in Quality Development for Schools, school administrations and educational institutions for the handicapped. I also spent many years working and conceptualising creative resilience work for patients in an cancer rehab clinic. 
I am a passionate writer as well as a passionate teacher and talker, as some of you know who joined our kitchen table talks. 

I am so looking forward to seeing you on this first zoom workshop on Mindful Personal Writing! 

Talk Things True: next gathering June 15

I have always loved concocting wisdom at a kitchen table. Sometimes it seems to me all the really important stuff of life is being talked through at a kitchen table, while preparing food… we will prepare the soulfood we need to move forward in these interesting times at my virtual kitchen table.

Please register for the zoom link to my virtual kitchen table and an occasional email update on my newest concoctions.

An invitation to TALK THINGS TRUE

It’s an invitation to TALK THINGS TRUE! Let’s zoom about transitions and serene endurance,  using a Grimm’s Fairytale or two as a template.
I’d like to kick off a series of kitchen table talks under the headline: TALK THINGS TRUE . Talks will be on

Mondays, 5 pm in Hamburg, Germany, that’s 11am Eastern Standard Time in the US.
I will read a Grimm’s Fairytale to you and we will use this as a template, talking things true about the transition as a valid and valuable phase in the journey.
Waiting, enduring, a seemingly passive state, is part of many a heroic quest.
But how to manage the transition into that state and out on the other side? – We’ll look at stories and our lives to talk things true…
Talking things through is what women have always done in interesting times… let’s sit around our virtual kitchen table and talk some truth.

You can expect a lively, erudite, direct and heartwarming talk, much respect for your voice and your silence, a bit of humour on the way, and you may leave equipped with a bit of nourishment for your soul’s journey through these times.
This zoom event is free, it’s live, it’s in English (with an accent), it’s on zoom, it’s on mondays at 5pm in Hamburg, that’s 11am on the East Coast of the US. It will be 60 to 90 minutes.
Want to join in? Sign in, using the form on this website, and I’ll send you a zoom link for the talk.
I love these kinds of talks, lead them irl many times, and I am looking forward very much to TALKING THINGS TRUE with you!
