What's in the loft? - A creative exploration of shame and longing
Professional and personal development workshop
What's in the loft?
Why is it there and not in the living room? When did you put it there? Do you want to keep it there, bring it down or clear it out? Maybe it's time to take a look?
A creative exploration of shame and longing, keeping safe, holding on and letting go.
This one day workshop will explore the things we keep, but keep hidden. Out of sight but perhaps not quite out of mind. Using the literal and metaphoric image of the loft space, we will explore our attachment to objects and celebrate the stories and meaning they can offer us - of how we became who we are and who we may become.
We will use a variety of creative exercises to explore the idea of the loft as a vehicle for therapeutic change. The workshop is suitable for and therapists and non-therapists, for personal or professional development. You will be asked to bring along two objects you keep in the loft – or photographs of them.
