Festival of Blossom: walking meditation and creative writing

Join an holistic mindful experience during the Festival of Blossom, using the key practices of writing and walking meditation to get back in touch with nature and unlock your creativity.

  • Booking essential
  • Free event

This walking meditation and creative writing workshop explores the sensory experience of connecting with nature.

During the walking meditation, you'll be guided to observe the impact of being outdoors and contemplate your natural surroundings which you'll creatively describe and reimagine during the writing component of the workshop. Ideas will be drawn from signs of Spring surrounding you at Morden Hall Park. There is no need to have ever written anything beforehand.

You can read more about the tutor here: Dr Michelle Yaa Asantewa is an award-winning author, academic and community activist. Her many publications include the young adult novel, Elijah, a poetry collection The Awakening, and she is the editor of the anthology In Search of Mami Wata.
