Odeheart – Season of Love poetry workshops at MAC

The gift of a love poem.

Saturday 12th February Midlands Arts Centre – MAC

Three independent poetry workshops exploring the beauty and complexity of love with poet and therapist (in training) Hayley Frances.

Choose from;

The *SELF LOVE* session

The *GRIEF IS LOVE session

The *LOVERS&FRIENDS* session

Each workshop follows the same structure with prompts, poems, and atmosphere altered to suit each theme. Participants can expect guided meditations, free-flow writing, intention setting, group connection, poetry prompts, biblio-poetry therapy, art supplies, frames, refreshments, and soundscapes inspired by the heart.

What to expect;

1* Pen a love poem.

2* Make it pretty.

3* Frame it.

We’ll begin with a heart-opening exercise and free-flow self-writing to set our intention to love, connect with our hearts, and invite the healing energy of love to ignite our creativity. We’ll continue by responding to a series of writing prompts that give our intuition a voice through metaphor and story.

We’ll explore the love we share, our connection to self, our relationships and deepen our awareness of the love in our hearts to create a poem of your very own!In the second part of the workshop, we’ll edit our poems into works of art and mount them into frames as a gift this love season.

There are no rules in this workshop. Though there are poetry forms, all poems are welcome here, whether mantras, reminders, interpretations, sonnets, statements, lyrics or letters (though I may ban red roses and blue violets).
