Throughout the workshop participants explore various aspects of myth – through folklore, ancient traditions and the principle of how myth plays a significant part in our personal life stories.
Participants learn to identify with their personal myth and how to weave and integrate this facet of their lives into a premise for story development.
You will be enthralled by guided walks to ancient sites on both islands.
The workshop includes a mix of simple yoga postures and music to focus the mind and breath.
Using mythological stories from the Irish and Indian traditions you connect to your essential self as these ancient stories, chants and melodies help to open your heart and mind to its full potential.
The writing element of the workshop shows you how to tap into your well of memory to evoke life experiences and how to translate and write these experiences as Fictional Memoir stories.
Using right-brain/left-brain learning techniques and writing exercises the workshop focuses on Character Development, Setting, Theme, Plot and Structure. Throughout the writing course you will develop and strengthen your authentic writing voice as you write a Short Fictional Memoir.
Set on Clare Island of the west Mayo Coast and Inis Mór, the larger of the Aran island in County Galway, your inner journey will evoke your spirit as you are guided through an unforgettable experience of ancient sites, myths of the landscape, Yoga, Irish music, singing, folklore and creative writing.
