About the workshop

I am not I. I am the one walking beside me. (Jiminez)

When we think of a relationship, most of us think of relating to other people – a lover, a spouse, a child, a friend. But what about the relationship with the person we have known longest – ourselves? Can writing open to a life-long love affair with yourself?

This workshop explores ‘the companion self’. That part of me that accompanies all I do – the part that Carl Jung called the twin. As Ray Bradbury, the writer, suggests “I do not write. The other me demands emergence constantly.” But who are ‘the other me’s? And how do I find them? The workshop attempts to answer these questions.

Searchers, healers, enthusiasts, beginner writers are welcome!
