Myth Takes

You are a myth maker.

Yes YOU.

We all have a myth living inside us. During this day long workshop, discover how the stories we tell ourselves about what is right and wrong, what is and is not possible about the world, become the way we make sense of our experiences.

You are the embodiment of a living myth, a myth you are constantly creating. Guided by two experienced storytellers, over the course of this day workshop, you will find your myth, exploring archetypes and symbols that live inside of you. 

By combining mindfulness practices and promoting self-awareness, you will learn to create your life story and discover underlying patterns in the personal myth. This will allow you to take control of your own myth making.

This unique experience is a chance to look more deeply inside yourself to reveal astonishing stories. At the end of the day you will have discovered and written your own myth.

You will learn: 

  • To be present and centred

  • To develop increased compassion towards yourself

  • To become more aware of the story you tell yourself about your life and how this influences your experience of the world you live in

Workshop activities will include:

Guided meditation, mindfulness walking, writing exercises, creative instruction and sharing.

This programme is for you, if you:

  • Want to gain insight into how you create your sense of identity

  • Want to develop a regular mindfulness practice

  • Wish for some quiet time and long to know how to quieten your mind and be still

  • Are new to mindfulness practice or wish to apply it in new and exciting ways

  • Are feeling stuck in life and would like the chance to experiment and play in supportive surroundings

  • Are looking for tools and techniques that will sustain you in your everyday life

  • Need some time for reflection away from work and family

  • Are in need of rejuvenation and renewal
